Newcastle design agency draws up expansion plans following six-figure investment

A Newcastle digital strategy and design agency has announced that it is expanding overseas following a six-figure investment.

JUMP received the investment from the North East Growth Capital Fund, supported by the European Regional Development Fund, and said it hopes to create new jobs.

Having worked with NEL Fund Managers to bring in the investment, the firm is now looking at options for winning new work in Ireland, the US and mainland Europe.

The business is expecting to further increase its 20-strong North East team as it expands and is also looking at opening new offices.

David Lovenbury, commercial director, commented: “We have phenomenally talented brand, design and digital development teams who produce absolutely outstanding work.

“Our job is to accelerate the commercial returns for our customers by asserting our expertise in strategic brand growth.

“JUMP has an inspirational and hugely driven senior team that’s full of ideas for how we can take our North East creativity onto the global stage.”

Founder Lucy Batley added: “We’ve spent the last few years consolidating, putting new systems in place to ensure efficiencies and, most importantly, creating an awe-inspiring team of talented designers and coders.

“I’m convinced that our continued success is directly attributed to the genuinely collaboratively way in which our staff and clients work, and we’re now ready to blow all of our competitors out of the water.

“We’re a seriously ambitious brand and want to be the agency of choice for other ambitious brands who recognise the fiscal value of the work we do.”
