A fast-growing digital marketing agency, founded by two brothers from Nailsea, has moved into an iconic building in Kingshill, converting the old bistro into a creative workspace for their team.
In just under 3 years, Jon and Nick Bird have seen their business grow from a desk in a spare bedroom to a team of 9 people, providing local jobs in marketing, website design, search engine optimisation and graphic design, along with two apprenticeships for local school leavers along the way.
Websites, graphic design, social media and more!
Nick Bird, 29, Co-Founder and Lead Digital Designer commented: “Our success has been largely down to the recommendations following results we have gained for our clients, such as a recent client appearance on Dragon’s Den that took their business to the next level. We have also found that many of our new clients have either been neglected by a large agency, or they have outgrown the capacity of a freelancer and they want to take their business forward with ongoing marketing support.”
Younger brother and Co-Founder Jon Bird, 27, commented: “Many firms in our industry move to major cities when they get to our size, but we’ve found being located in North Somerset to be hugely advantageous, to both us and our clients. Just because most of our work is online, doesn’t mean that our clients don’t want to meet face-to-face, sit down and have a coffee together. It helps to build relationships and reduces the chances of confusion and misalignment throughout creative work, where you really have to learn about people and their businesses to help present their offer effectively.”
Technology and local talent
As one of the only licensed drone operators in the area, the Squarebird team are utilising the latest technologies and creative skills to help their clients stand out online.
Nick Bird added: “There’s a huge amount of local creative talent here, and with many well-respected Colleges and Universities on our doorstep, it’s great to be able to provide the opportunity for local people to start or continue their career without having to commute or move away from their home.”
Squarebird Open Day
Squarebird is holding an open day office party on Friday 1st June from 1pm, where everyone is welcome! Whether you’re in the local community and interested in what the agency is up to, an existing or potential client, or someone looking to get into the industry, the team would love to see you on the 1st June!
