NI digital design agency Frank expands in region

13 Sep 2011

Northern Ireland digital design agency Frank is not only growing its operations in Belfast, but it’s opening a new office in Derry. The expansion will result in five new jobs.

Established in 2005, Frank specialise in brand, broadcast and digital services, and currently employs a staff of 10 in Belfast. The additional jobs in Belfast will see Frank develop its digital and technological capabilities alongside its work in broadcast and film.

“It’s an exciting time for Frank and this expansion will help us substantially increase our capacity on two fronts,” said Frank founder and CEO Damian Cranney.

“With the opening of a new office in Derry, we’re coming to a city on the cusp of something very special. It’s a region thriving with creative talent and we’re planning to build a team that reflects this vibrancy and skill. We’ve developed strong ties to the northwest through our work with the Londonderry Chamber of Commerce and the Digital Derry initiative and with lots of interesting conversations taking place about further opportunities, we hope that our new office will put us right at the heart of all that’s happening in the northwest.”

Frank is a company whose focus has always been on the creation of ideas that move, inspire and help businesses compete in this new digital world, Cranney said. The firm has evolved into a multi-disciplined creative service agency that shifts between online, offline and on-screen platforms.

Cranney also said Frank will be looking to establish a presence in the rest of the UK.
