A Leeds based print, direct and digital marketing agency has announced the acquisition of specialist communications agency.
Telescope has announced that it will expanding its offering to cover more specialised skills and services by investing in Clearsilver Brand Marketing. The investment will combine the Telescope teams expertise in website design and build, catalogue production, direct marketing and design for print with Clearsilver’s PR, strategic marketing skills in the education, mother and baby, and charity sector, making them a powerful dream team in communications.
Louise Leach, former Director of Clearsilver Brand Marketing, said: “Clearsilver and Telescope have worked in partnership on numerous projects over the last ten years, and there isn’t a closer fit to maximise success for both parties. Clearsilver was established in 2006, and since then has delighted in numerous award-wins, as well as becoming a recommended provider for schools and academy trusts, and brands specifically in the charity, wellness and parenting space.
“Existing clients can expect the same level of consistent and responsive service as always from the Clearsilver team, with a new, enhanced package of support.”
