North Yorkshire based creative agency announces ‘ambitious’ expansion plans

Yorkshire based creative agency, Impression Studio, has announced ‘ambitious’ plans for growth that will take the agency and its sister business, Next Chapter, to £1m turnover by the end of the financial year 2025.

The growing agency creative and digital products agency, established by CEO and founder Charlie Hartley in 2009, currently has 17 staff across two agency brands; Impression and sister agency, Next Chapter, which specialises in digital marketing. In line with this growth projection, the business will be looking to create 5 additional positions across the board.

Hartley, who started the Harrogate headquartered agency aged 24, said: “We’ve experienced encouraging and sustainable growth within the last 2 years, expanding our international client base and spreading our wings further throughout the UK with the addition of FLOCC earlier this year, which has given us access to exciting businesses in East Anglia.

“Of course, we’re Yorkshire born and bred and we’ve been thrilled to grow in our home county, with the addition of 3 new team members recently and exciting projects like Betty’s and Taylors Group, the company behind the iconic Yorkshire Tea brand.

“We have ambitious plans to ramp reach the £1m turnover mark within the next couple of years, as well as grow the team. It’s an exciting time and we have brilliant people on the journey.”

Dan Martin, Technical Director at Impression, added: “Our growth projections are influenced heavily by the evolving demands of our clients from a technical perspective, particularly with our clients in the Proptech and Biotech sectors.

“As a specialist JamStack development agency, we are seeing an increase in enquiries from businesses with complex requirements for projects spanning immersive websites, web applications and other custom digital products, both here in the UK and with our clients in the US.

“It’s really exciting and I’m looking forward to expanding our experience, knowledge and team as we progress.”
