A decade of design
Leeds-based brand, communications and design agency, BML Creative, have recently announced a series of special works to celebrate their tenth anniversary.
Founded by husband and wife, David and Natalie Holloway, BML offer creatively-led design and marketing services with a strong focus on brand strategy. Their clients include the University of London, NHS, The Royal British Legion and End of the Road Festival.
Natalie Holloway, Director commented “We’re incredibly proud to have hit such a big milestone. Ten years is a long time for anyone to be in business. When Dave and I started out, we had absolutely no idea of the twists and turns that lay ahead of us. It has been an incredible journey – not always an easy one, but definitely memorable!”
To celebrate the milestone, BML will be undertaking a programme of special creative collaborations with local businesses and organisations all around the theme of ‘Ten’.
David Holloway, Creative Director added “We didn’t want the occasion to pass by un-noticed, so instead we’ve decided to push the boat out and run an entire series of special collaborative projects over the next 12 months. We’re kicking things off by offering ten final year design students in the Leeds area the opportunity to sit down with myself for a detailed 1-2-1 portfolio review. The idea is to help them avoid some of the common pitfalls that I see from recent graduate job applications on a near daily basis.”
BML are working closely with leading institutions including Leeds Beckett University to engage students in the programme. David added “We have already seen a terrific response to the idea and if the response is as expected, we’re hoping it might become a regular fixture in our calendar.”
Other projects in the pipeline include collaborations with some of the leading organisations in the area on some innovative design work. “We don’t want to say too much about what’s coming next.”, David said, “All we can say is, it should be a very interesting 12 months!”
Looking to the future
BML have recently launched the latest version of their website which includes a detailed overview of the agency’s Foundation™ brand strategy process – a highly bespoke service designed to help ambitious businesses grow.
Natalie said, “It’s no coincidence that the website has been released when it has. We’ve evolved immeasurably as a business over the past decade. Foundation™ is just one example of a service that we’ve fine tuned over the years and can really transform the fortunes of a business.” Natalie continued, “Dave and I have to send a special thanks to the BML team for their herculean efforts in bringing the new website to life. Thanks to them, we can head into our next ten years with the best possible footing.”
