Wow, can you believe it’s April already? We certainly can’t! There has been so much going on over here at the Better studio, and after announcing the appointment of our brand spanking new Creative Director, John, we’re here with news of another new team member.

We’d like to give a very warm welcome to Shaun Hogg, the newest member of our ever-growing digital team. Shaun will bring a wealth of experience to our web development team as well as adding to the mix with his skills in digital marketing. 

Shaun Hogg - Better Brand Agency

Previously owning his own agency, Stripe4, Shaun recently won the Tees Valley Best New Business award, which was a huge accolade for him and extremely deserved. After delivering some really exciting digital consultancy and delivery projects for a range of local clients, Shaun decided that he wanted to begin offering larger scale support, coupled with a wider range of services rather than growing Stripe4 itself. It was from this notion that Shaun made the decision to meet with us for a conversation about how we could help him achieve his goals, and likewise how he could play a part in our continued growth. Joining forces with Better to take up his Digital Development position, Shaun will work with us to support our clients with a strong digital marketing knowledge.

Better has continued to evolve its digital marketing service, supporting a number of local and national clients with digital design, development and marketing services. This includes the recent launch of a bespoke membership platform and website for UKISUG, the development of the new NECC website and ongoing development of the crowdfunding platform for GrowthFunders. In addition, Better has also grown its client base in content and inbound marketing, delivering impact-led content marketing plans to a number of clients focusing on marketing automation and lead generation. 

“We are continually looking to invest in growing our digital team and further strengthening our capability from website design and development through to innovative and impactful digital marketing.

“As more and more clients require support to understand their marketing objective and measure impact of digital projects and campaigns, now is the time to invest wisely in the strongest team. We believe we’re doing that with the appointment of Shaun, and will continue to invest in digital talent in the future.”

– Adam Gatenby, Digital Director at Better. 

Shaun commented on his new position at Better by saying, “I’m really excited to be joining such as vibrant, creative and technically equipped agency as Better. Having run my own agency for a number of years, I was at a crossroads, wanting to work on bigger projects, with larger companies. At this juncture I met with Adam and Mark and the position I was offered within Better was hard to refuse.

“The projects I’m working on are of a really high calibre (plus really exciting) and the team is amazing. To borrow a well known slogan… Im loving it.”
