London-based creative agency opens second studio in North East

Luminous, a London-based creative communications agency, has announced that it’s opened its second studio in Newcastle.

The agency has led the creative on award-winning projects for clients including Allen & Overy, the BBC, Mitie and National Express Group.

Creative Partner Jon Towell explains the thinking behind opening the new studio, he said: “Over the years we have been developing an integrated offer focused specifically on client needs and have enjoyed tremendous organic growth in London, and the time was right to seek fresh opportunities in exciting new locations.

“We chose Newcastle to lead as it is a creative and innovative hub that aligns well with our brand, and is also a good location for many of our clients based in the north of the country. What’s more, no other agency in the region will be offering our unique integrated creative and strategic specialisms, delivered in print, on screen and through moving image.”

The new studio will be led by James Moore, he adds: “We will be creating jobs here by building on the strong connections we currently have with Newcastle University. We plan to implement both a placement and full-time talent programme to help grow the Luminous family. Our brand purpose is ‘Believe in brilliance’, so we are looking forward to helping make local talent shine.”
