TWO new team members have been welcomed to award-winning website design and digital marketing specialist Laser Red.
The Grimsby-based business, headed by Young Entrepreneur of the Year Liam O’Leary, has added a new designer and client account manager, as demand for services swells.
Danny Gower, who for the past six years has worked as a self-employed graphic designer – specialising in branding and printed collateral – has joined the team.
Over the years he has created strong and powerful branding for local companies such as The Comfy Duck and The Lincolnshire Chef. He has also worked closely with Holiday Inn Express Grimsby, DoubleTree by Hilton, Hampton by Hilton and Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill, designing items from room business cards to fully branded hotel, restaurant and bar materials.
He graduated from De Montfort University with a degree in Interactive Design but over the course of his education, studied various forms of multimedia. He became interested in graphic design at college and made it his focus while in Leicester.
“I’ve been in touch with Laser Red a few times over the past few years and I’ve always been impressed by their work and way they interact with their clients,” he said. “When the opportunity arose to be part of the team, I knew it was the right move for me. I can’t wait to get stuck in and start working with this brilliant team.”
He enjoys working closely with people, understanding their brand, their aims and creating an identity for their business which will help them grow, adding that he “loves nothing more than seeing his work help a company become its own”.
Out of work he is a Netflix fan, loves a nice meal out and a glass of wine – red, obviously – and also plays squash.
Joining him at the E-Factor Enterprise Village, is John Pearce, as the company ensures it provides the same level of care and attention as the influx of new and repeat client projects builds.
Joining from Clarriots Care, where hew was business development manager, he has a strong background in design and marketing, having run his own design agency between 2010 and 2013.
“I am extremely excited to be joining the award winning agency Laser Red, and helping to drive the business forward to meet it’s very exciting goals for the future,” he said.
He has 12 years experience in design and marketing. He studied Interactive Design at the University of Lincoln where he gained a diploma. The thing he enjoys most about being part of the design industry is solving client problems to help change their business for the better.
