Newcastle creative agency draws up plans to increase turnover as income doubles

A North East creative agency has announced that it is on track to double its income for this year as it grows its workforce.

Vida Creative, based in Ouseburn, has grown its team from two members to six, and has said that as well as doubling this years income, it is aiming to grow its 2021 turnover by 25 per cent.

During lockdown the company has worked with 360 Growth Partners, which helps businesses to accelerate their growth.

Ellen Hedley, co-founder of Vida Creative, commented: “When we started working with 360 Growth Partners, we knew we needed to get the business in a position where we were ready for the next phase of growth. We just weren’t quite sure where to start.

“The team at 360 Growth Partners listened to our needs and goals and helped us with a clear plan of action to develop a strategy to take us forwards. Now we have a much clearer focus. Not just financially or client-wise, but for all areas of the business.

“We feel very proud that we’ve grown our team during the pandemic.

“I think the key has been to stay creative and look to the future. Focusing on the things we can control, like our ability to do good work and helping our clients to succeed in every way possible during such a tough time.”

Andrew Silver, director of 360 Growth Partners, said: “It has been a pleasure to work with Ellen and Henry to develop a strategic growth plan.

“Our team of business, marketing, financial and HR experts has worked in business most of our lives and we are at home getting stuck in and working with owners and managing directors to help them reach their full potential.

“As a business, we believe great things happen when you inspire belief in your team to live and share your business dreams. We’re delighted to have seen this in practice at Vida Creative. We look forward to continuing our work together to action exciting plans for 2021 and beyond.”
