Combining award-winning creative flair with business-winning technical know-how
After years of working together at various big agencies, the company was set up as Native Studios by John Smith and Andy Stones in 2007, and later became Blumin in 2014.
John heads-up the creative team from our Cornwall office and Andy looks after all things technical from our Manchester base.
We combined design and technology to help Douglas Scott win one of the UK’s largest legal services providers – making significant recruitment cost reductions and reducing time to hire by 90%.
What sets us apart from other agencies is some of the far from conventional back-end stuff we design and build – like innovative tech platforms that transform operational efficiency, boost profitability and help accelerate business growth.
Combining our award-winning creative flair with our business-winning technical know-how – think of it as left and right brain working in perfect sync – the results speak for themselves.
From a nifty piece of lead tracking software that helped one of our clients; a leading UK manufacturer, uplift online enquiry conversions to a web-based recruitment portal that helped to make significant savings in HR costs, within its first 2 months. We specialise in keeping business owners, brand marketers and FDs happy.
We don’t go in for that smoke and mirrors thing here – you know, where small agencies crack on they’re bigger than they are. What’s the point?
Anyway, we really like being us. Just ten of us – 4 in Cornwall, 6 in Manchester. Don’t get us wrong, we do fancy growing a bit – but for now there’s Andy, John, Lisa, Paul, Hannah, Amanda, Jonathan, Mike, Jenny and Adrian.
Easy for us to say, but working with us is, well… easy.
Ask any of our clients, they’re our biggest fans. And let’s face it, they already know what you’re, presumably, keen to find out. Are we any blumin good?
Rather than worry about looking the part, we’d much rather play our part in making your business more successful. We can’t say fairer than that, can we?
We respect your money, your time, your understanding of your business and your customers. We can’t create more hours in the day, but we do the next best thing… we work fast.
We design smart websites, beautiful motion graphics, and bring illustrations to life; we rethink brands, devise clever and effective advertising.More on Creative
