A Royston – based marketing agency that works with construction businesses across the UK has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award just a year after it launched.
SWW Marketing has been named as a finalist in the Small Agency of the Year 2020 category in this year’s Construction Marketing Awards, which showcase the construction industry’s creativity, innovation and effectiveness in marketing.
The company was set up by Ollie Smith, (aged 30) and Lucy Westbrook-White (aged 32) just over a year ago and despite facing an incredibly turbulent year with Covid-19, the pair now have offices in Royston and Yorkshire and have produced some amazingly creative work and campaigns for clients including IWP Dansk, OSL Group, Oxera, Propak and Nueco Group.
Company director and founder Ollie, of Saffron Walden, said: “We’re so pleased to have been shortlisted for this award, construction is such an amazing industry to be part of and we are passionate about helping companies within the sector. We’re grateful to have been recognised for our hard work especially during such a turbulent year which has been tough for so many businesses – it’s a real boost to be a finalist.”
It’s been a busy first year for the company which since launching in 2019, has become proud sponsors of international conservation charity World Land Trust, pledging to donate £100 for every brochure they design to fund the purchase and protection of one acre of threatened habitat through the ‘Buy an Acre’ Programme.
Back in April, Ollie and Lucy raised over £1,000 by each running 100km over 10 days to raise money for the Trussell Trust, which supports the nationwide network of food banks. The pair each ran roughly 10km a day during their daily exercise allowance during the national lockdown and documented their progress on their Instagram page.
The winners of the Construction Marketing Awards will be announced at an online presentation on November 26.
