2022 – The start of something special

2022 – The start of something special

Fellowship Productions Ltd

2022 is a rather special year for us. We’re celebrating 20 years of Fellowship.

From a one man band founded by Darren Hickey, we’re now an 18 person agency.

Over the years our office has been located in a castle, a back garden portakabin, a rural barn conversion and is now in a business park by the A14.

Our very first project was a new logo and website for a small local business. Since then we’ve done hundreds more. Our clients have included Thomas Cook, Cancer Research UK, EasyJet, NHS, Sony and Panasonic.

Among the standout projects have been building Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life website in 2012. This used groundbreaking Cognitive Match technology, that matches individuals with tailored content, in realtime.

Also designing a huge range of graphics for PM David Cameron’s speech at DP World London Gateway before the G8 summit in June 2013.

Our focus has always been on fundamentals – building distinctive brands and effective websites.

We help our clients grow through no nonsense, jargon-free marketing – underpinned by strong strategy. And by establishing long term partnerships based on being friendly, helpful and responsive. As well as being creatively and technically talented.

We’ll be sharing more about our story, our projects and our people over the coming months.

Here’s to the next 20 years!

Seventeen of the Fellowship crew got together last night for our Christmas meal. Sadly, we had one absentee due to Covid.

This was the first chance for many of us to meet some of our new colleagues. We ate in a huge Tipitent in the grounds of The Weeping Willow in Barrow, west of Bury St Edmunds.

Excellent food, great company and some entertaining Secret Santa gifts made for a fun evening.

Huddling around the giant pyramid heaters, swaddled in sheepskin rugs, proved increasingly popular as the night wore on.

When he’s not busy working as a WordPress Developer, our latest recruit coaches Cockfield United’s goalkeepers.

Mike Onslow has over 10 years of agency experience, building bespoke WordPress and WooCommerce websites.

Mike’s favourite assignments include a website for Colchester Zoo, where he’s a regular visitor. Plus a challenging project for Freespace which involved a lot of admin area customisation, so the client can easily maintain, edit and use the complex blocks that make up their website.

When he’s not busy at work or out on the football field, you’ll often find Mike out with his wife exploring National Trust properties and hunting waterfalls.

Our new Digital Project Manager, Alexander Brewis, used to be a high ranking sword fencer in the men’s sabre.

He’s also a skilled voiceover artist. Last year he played Father Christmas in an ad for a US company that makes novelty socks.

Valuable as those skills are, they’re not why he got the job. He has an extensive background in software and IT, working as an App Developer and Support Technician before moving into Project Management.

A qualified Prince2 Practitioner, Alexander has delivered WordPress websites, software and apps to clients in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing and healthcare.

He’s clearly well suited for the ahem, cut and thrust of Fellowship work.

I’m really excited to welcome Danny Turnbull to the Fellowship team as our first Non-Executive Director.

Danny is a Managing Consultant at Cactus – one of the UK’s largest agency growth and M&A consultancies – having worked with over 1,000 agencies in the last 10 years. Before joining Cactus, Danny spent thirty years working in agencies, the last fifteen of which he was leading major agency brands in the UK and Europe.

Having done some work with Cactus over the last year or so, I know that Danny will bring a tremendous blend of experience, insight and enthusiasm to this new role. Our team has been growing steadily and with Danny’s guidance I’m confident we’ll go from strength to strength.

Reflections as we emerge – blinking – out of lockdown

We went into lockdown with a team of 12. Now, as we take our first, tentative steps out of lockdown, there are 18 of us.

That’s a 50% growth in posts, including three more web developers, a finance manager, an account manager, and another graphic designer.

Recruiting staff remotely has been an interesting experience. Last week, all of us got together for the first time. We had a meal outdoors and reassured ourselves that we’re all fit and functioning.

Looking back it seems crazy that our pre-Covid policy was to allow staff just one day per week working from home. Our new hybrid model of homeworking and some time in the studio is definitely here to stay. Going forward we plan to be very flexible, while still making sure the whole team get together on a reasonably regular basis.

Quiz nights on Zoom have partly filled the social gap, but we’ve all really missed lunches at the pub and our walks and talks around the scenic Hartest countryside. And while remote scrum sessions have worked well using Zoho Sprints, they’ve definitely been sit downs rather than stand ups.

Thankfully, we’ve been busier than ever – more on that to follow.

We’re delighted to welcome David Hayhow to our team. He has over 11 years of experience as a full stack web developer, five years as an Apple Genius and 10 years as a pre-press professional. David used to work for Rubious, the agency we acquired 16 months ago. Thanks to his existing knowledge of many of the WordPress and WooCommerce websites we continue to support, this was our fastest appointment ever – from interview to starting work in just a few days.

With Dave onboard, our web development team numbers eight and our total team 16.
