Wiltshire creative agency helps recruitment expert with US expansion

By Nick Batten on 25 January, 2024

Recruitment agency Distinct has been aided by Wiltshire design agency Milk & Tweed with a push into further markets across the UK and in the US by a redesigned website and an updated brand.

Based in Nottingham, Distinct specialises in recruitment for roles within finance, HR, marketing, IT and office support and supply chain and procurement and is opening an office in London to mount an expansion into the south. In addition to this, it is about to open another in Boston to capitalise on its rapid growth in the North American market.

The agency turned to Milk & Tweed for its new brand look and an upgraded website with functions to help both clients and job hunters.

Milk & Tweed, which has offices in Chippenham and Brighton, is building a reputation for excellence in website, brand and logo design and digital marketing.

Amy Robinson-Nunn, Distinct Marketing Director, said, “We’ve got exciting expansion plans in both London and North America, whilst also pushing to stand out in quite competitive markets. So, one of the things we wanted to do was make sure that our brand and our website supported this strategy.

“We wanted something that was fresh, confident, clean and modern, whilst still retaining the core of what the brand has always been – I think that’s been achieved here.”

Milk & Tweed’s design team refreshed the Distinct logo to give it a more modern feel, sharpened the colours and used cleaner typography. The agency’s website has been redesigned and features two new user-friendly tools.

Amy continued, “On the flip side for our clients, we’ve got a wage insights tool which uses live data from the last 12 months, so if they are advertising a job in a particular area, the tool will display the going rate for that job title in their chosen location.

“I think they’ve created something that I am genuinely proud of and would recommend them to others. Our refreshed brand and new website help us to stand out from our competitors and will certainly support our new strategy and exciting expansion plans.”

Milk & Tweed Web Manager Jon Mynette added, “The project was amazing to work on and the team at Distinct were great to work with because they were so organised, driven and ambitious. It really pushed us as a team and I’m very proud of the work we’ve done and the results we’ve achieved.

“I must give a special mention to the lead designer Jon Francis and lead developer Sam Jones, who have both done fantastic work on the project. Without them we wouldn’t have been able to achieve what we have.”

Milk and Tweed also recently helped update an online self-check tool for national breast cancer awareness charity, CoppaFeel!
