Thomas Design, one of the longest established design and marketing agencies in south Wales, has strengthened its team by employing a senior graphic designer, complementing its already diverse and experienced staff base. The appointment comes after a surge of growth for Thomas Design in Q1 of 2017.
Senior graphic designer, Gareth Emanuel was appointed due to increase in demand of Thomas Design’s design and marketing services at the beginning of 2017. Gareth has worked in the design and digital media industry for five years, since graduating from university in 2011 with a master’s degree in graphic communications.
Gareth obtains an abundance of knowledge and experience in the graphic design industry, having previously worked as an in-house designer and marketer prior to joining Thomas Design. Gareth’s main role at Thomas Design is senior designer and front end developer, seeing him work closely with clients to obtain a better understanding of their business needs and goals, ensuring the result meets specified targets.
Additional qualities Gareth brings to the team are his experience and skill to create and develop new brand identities, explore new marketing strategies and design online adverts for clients. Gareth comments on his new role at Thomas Design:
“Thomas Design was a great career move for me as I found working for a family-owned business meant decision making was quicker, direction was sharper and feedback was instant.
“I love the fast turnaround on projects as it allows Damian, Thomas Design’s founder, to run a tight-ship. This means we can always keep track of ongoing projects, be efficient with our time and monitor our calendar to fit in new work and help customers as quickly as possible. I also have the freedom to suggest new ideas and help push the business in ways that you rarely get the chance to with a larger company.”
Thomas Design’s most recent marketing service ‘Done for You’, launched toward the end of 2016 and has already proven to be one of its most popular services, returning significant results for clients.
One client saw a 25 percent boost in business within the first two weeks of using this service. The ‘Done for You’ marketing service focuses on helping clients to improve their brand recognition, increase their market research abilities and reach a wider audience.
Thomas Design now intends to expand its team further by seeking an additional website developer. Founder and managing director, Damian Thomas, comments on the growth over the past 12 months:
“The past 12 months for Thomas Design has seen substantial growth, in both our service demand and staff base.
“Gareth’s addition to our team has allowed us to streamline and tighten each of our service offerings even further. His attention to detail, skill and work ethic is second to none and we can already see the positive impact he is making to the business.
“I look forward to continuing to expand the team and see what’s next for Thomas Design in 2017.”
