A design and marketing company has teamed up with an Ilkley community group whose work supports children and their families who have special needs and learning difficulties.

Having set up a new studio in Ilkley in 2013, Creative and Marketing was keen to get involved with the community group LS29.

Creative’s co-founder, Daniel Belcher, said: “Becoming involved with LS29 was a fantastic opportunity. The project involves rebranding and revamping their website, plus producing some marketing. The aim is to create greater awareness and wider participation for the group.

“We would like to see more children and families find access to the support that such an organisation like LS29 can bring.

“For us it means we can engage with a locally-based charity and to provide a much-needed service as part of our social responsibility.”

The new website houses the latest news and events plus the ability for parents to join the group, creating a stronger network of support.

In addition, the newly-set-up LS29 Youth Zone offers up the same kind of activities for older children of nine-plus, who still benefit from inclusion and interaction.

“We think the new brand and website will make a big difference to how LS29 is seen and in turn engender greater support,” said Daniel.

Creative is also offering mentorship support to ‘up and coming’ designers, web developers and marketers, from young people looking to find a career in the creative industry to graduates seeking all-important studio experience.

Creative and Marketing undertake imaginative and innovative work for small businesses, large organisations and social enterprises.

They offer a free, no-obligation diagnostic review, to understand how best to contribute towards greater market share and business growth. The focus is on strategy, technology and multi-channel marketing.

Daniel added: “If this is something businesses feel they would benefit from, they can get in touch for a chat about how to make their marketing really work, which for any company is key to future success.”
