Chippenham-based creative agency Milk & Tweed has welcomed Jon Mynette as its new Web Manager to help its continued expansion to meet demand.
He is joined by Digital Marketer and Studio Assistant Alice Goulding as the agency, which specialises in website creation, brand and logo design and digital marketing, builds on two consecutive record-breaking months and the acquisition of Sussex digital agency Huxley.
Jon – who will be overseeing the client website building side of the business, from design to build – said, “I’ll be making sure each stage of the process is as good as it can be. The plan is for me also to be the face of the website creation side, so I’ll be the first port of call for clients.”
After studying music in London the accomplished drummer, who is originally from Droitwich, toured the UK in support of a sing/songwriter before working in a management role at a national musical instrument hire business. He left to become a freelance website designer/builder for an agency in Bristol, where he now lives.
For Jon, the decision to join Milk & Tweed was an easy one. He said, “Even from the initial chat I had with Jake Jeffries the Creative Director I liked the way he looked at things, it was very structured and very ambitious.
“I am really enjoying being part of the team, it’s been good getting to know everyone and it’s a really nice vibe here. I’m looking forward to working with Jake, he’s very ambitious in what he wants to achieve so I’m delighted at being on board for everything we are going to accomplish. That’s the most exciting thing and what attracted me here.”
Alice, who grew up in Herefordshire, left university in Gloucester last summer after finishing a degree in graphic design. She will be writing content, designing graphics and scheduling for clients’ social media as well as producing website content.
She said, “The team here have made me feel so unbelievably welcome. I love that every day there’s a communal part of it where we all spend time together at lunch playing darts, that’s quite rare. Milk & Tweed have made it so that we always join together and catch up. I really enjoy that.”
The new appointments will help the agency stay on top of the increased workload brought about by new clients and the acquisition of Huxley in Brighton.
Jake explained, “It’s a very exciting time for us because we’ve had an amazing last quarter, welcomed some fantastic new clients and brought in fresh talent like Jon and Alice. With the acquisition of Huxley we can now offer some of their customers our services such as digital marketing and we will be inheriting technical web skills that will add to our offer, so there is a huge amount going on.”
