Home Blog Creative thinkers join Karol Marketing at the old pub

Stefan Lepkowski of Karol Marketing, John Cave of biddible, Paul Hutton of Boxmodel and Alan Easton of BoxmodelThe Karol Marketing team are really thrilled to have announced that we’re opening a new hub for creative agencies in the North East at our HQ (based in an Old Pub) in Newcastle’s creative quarter! Our collaborative expertise will now include marketing, public relations and software development to paid search and design just to name a few of our offerings.

Our Old Pub office space has become a collaborative working environment for creative agencies with complementary yet distinct creative services. We believe there is huge potential for companies across the digital and creative industries to collaborate further and offer clients increasingly integrated and innovative digital services – so we thought what better way to make that happen than to bring a number of complementary companies together in one great space!

We’ve already been joined by software and app developers Boxmodel Digital and we’re still on the lookout for the final company to complete The Old Pub Team.

Speaking at the launch of the hub, our MD and owner of The Old Pub, Stefan Lepkowski said: “There is huge potential for companies across the digital and creative industries to work together. Clients increasingly want us to collaborate across the digital spectrum and to provide them with an integrated, holistic service. That’s how the idea for establishing a creative hub was born, and where better to establish it than in an Old Pub!

“I believe our offer is different because like mindedness underpins our idea of creative hub concept.  We are not looking for tenants but rather searching for business partners who share a common vision and demonstrate it through open and active collaboration.

I am thrilled to have Boxmodel join us and we are already presenting joined up campaigns to our clients.”

Paul Hutton, Managing MD, Boxmodel said: “Making the move to the Old Pub was a decision which needed little consideration. It was immediately clear that it was not only a highly impressive home for our North East offices, with arguably the best views of Newcastle, but the co-habitation with likeminded experts, from complementing sectors, would aid our continued growth strategy.”

He continued: “We are enthused at working in this vibrant environment, which promotes a collaborative approach to delivering emerging technologies, marketing and commercial services with attention to detail being at the core.”
