Creative agency launches in Bristol

Creative agency Blue Kangaroo Design has expanded into a new office in Bristol and appointed six new employees following a period of significant growth.

Blue Kangaroo Design works with global brands across Europe, Asia and America, including some household names such as Universal Studios, Mattel, Disney, Warner Brothers, Marvel, Amazon and Ravensburger.

The award-winning agency, which has its headquarters in Newcastle, recently worked with Universal Studios to design, build and install a Jurassic Park retail environment at the Natural History Museum.

The agency, founded in 2006 with just two employees, has recently recruited six new employees taking its tally to 20.

It has opened a new office at the creative hub Temple Studios in Bristol, run by Blue Kangaroo’s head of design Paul Richards, who lives in Bristol, and four other members of staff Ellie Bacon, Anina Yates and Rachel Chapman and Ben Chick.

The move comes after Blue Kangaroo recorded a 25 per cent increase in turnover in the last financial year and an investment of over £30,000 in technology. The creative agency, run by founder and owner Jason Knights, has ambitious growth plans for the company and expects to reach £5m within three years.

Jason said: “We started out in 2006 and our first big client was Disney Store. Since then we have grown by word of mouth and have built up a great reputation as a creative agency which works with some amazing clients.

“Business is great so it was an easy decision to open a new office in Bristol, take on more talented, skilled creatives and expand both our capacity and operations.

“We regularly have over 130 projects on the go for our 17 globally known clients, and we have exciting times ahead.

“I’m really proud to be opening our new studio in Bristol – such a bustling city which rivals London and Manchester for its vibrant and existing creative scene.

“Our Bristol team Together are really excited to be opening a new chapter for Blue Kangaroo Design in the heart of the South West, and it’s fantastic to be contributing to the creative industries sector in this thriving, vibrant city.”
