Creative agency Design Integrity has announced two new hires at its Liverpool city centre base.
It has hired its first full-time staff members, graphic designer and frontend developer, Nola McIntyre and junior graphic designer, Na Yu, to support client demand and business growth.
Nola joins the firm offering a wealth of cross-sector experience after working as an in-house graphic designer at Trove in Manchester and on a number of freelance projects.
Na was placed with Design Integrity through St Helens Chamber of Commerce graduate scheme. She specialises in animation and motion graphics and is responsible for project delivery, working alongside the creative director.
Design Integrity was founded in 2017 by Stephen Murray after nearly a decade in the industry. Before establishing his own studio, Stephen worked for household names such as Nike, Dyson, Adidas, Shop Direct, very.co.uk, John West UK and United Utilities.
He was instrumental in Shop Direct’s 2013 rebrand and designed the Dyson ‘Heat Wave’ ad campaign, which generated half a million pounds gross revenue for the company.
Design Integrity has enjoyed strong growth since its establishment, winning high-profile clients such as Birmingham City Council, Shared Lives Plus, Ford Motors and the Anglican Diocese of Liverpool.
Stephen said: “Design Integrity has enjoyed steady growth in its first 18 months. Being a brand-led creative agency means that we encourage clients to put their values at the very heart of all their creative and technological communications.
“We challenge everything from tone of voice, positioning, customer profiling and business personality, all in pursuit of extracting a brand’s uniqueness and finding the idea that will start a movement.
“We eschew quick fixes and short term results, in favour of slow and meaningful growth.”
