NE business grows further with new office

A leading North East marketing business has opened a new office in Gateshead thanks to its extensive growth all over the North of England- which it attributes to not being a ‘full-service’ marketing company.

Design 365, which has been established in Newton Aycliffe since 2004, has seen demand for its online marketing services increase rapidly in the last year. As a result, the company has opened an office at Gateshead International Business Centre creating two jobs, adding to its seven-strong team with more planned in the future.

Design 365 specialises in web design and development, e-commerce and search engine optimisation. The business was established by former navy paramedic, Alan Foster, who has been in the web marketing field for over 15 years working for a range of blue chip companies, hotel groups, spas and a host of SMEs.

Design 365 is working with a number of new clients across Tyne and Wear and Northumberland including popular delicatessen, The Corbridge Larder, D-line in Whitley Bay and ESP in Newcastle.

In addition to building the business across the North, Alan has launched the Gateshead office to provide Design 365’s team with flexible working options as they meet with clients all over the region.

Speaking about the company’s growth, Alan said: “We’ve experienced a real surge in demand for our services in the last year as people seek out the companies that can offer a specialist, no-nonsense package. We’re not full-service and we attribute this to our success. We know what we do and we do it well- I only employ the people that are at the top of their game. Thanks to our size, we can offer a personal service that is efficient and economic.

“Gateshead was an obvious location for us as it provides us with instant access to the whole of Tyne and Wear and into Northumberland and the surrounding area where we’ve recently clinched a number of contracts. We’re now looking forward to growing the business in 2013 and, hopefully, creating a number of new jobs for young people in the area.”
