Design, digital and branding agency Cuckoo is celebrating its most successful year to date after turnover just topped £1 million.

The Manchester firm, which boasts a client portfolio of world-renowned national and international brands including Crown Plaza, Double Tree by Hilton, Muse Developments and Police Mutual, saw a 22 per cent increase on the previous year’s figures.

The business, established more than 25 years ago, secured five new client wins and appointed three new team members during the course of the year.

Justine Wright, managing director at Cuckoo, said: “It’s testament to the team’s hard work and dedication to our clients that we’ve been able to reach the highest turnover figures in our 25-year history.

“We’re delighted to have had the opportunity to expand our client portfolio while continuing to deliver on projects for existing clients, enabling them to communicate more effectively with their customers and meet their business objectives.” 

One of the new additions to Cuckoo’s client list was Milson Group, a professional services provider for land owners, property investors, financial institutions & developers. The agency was tasked with developing a brand identity for Milson Group, as well as the design and build of a new company website.

Other clients which appointed Cuckoo to deliver a variety of branding, collateral and web build projects throughout the year include Acumen, a company providing research methodologies throughout the UK and international markets, Alielle, a solutions provider for archives, libraries and museums, and Aspect Viewing Facilities, which offers clients the finest market research venues in the UK.

Cuckoo was also appointed by Rosa to support its product launch into the food industry, and 3EP, a company delivering commercial, pragmatic and far-reaching advice in Geotechnical and Environmental Site Investigation and Urban Regeneration Strategies.

Cuckoo also moved into a new office space at Salford Quays after 25 years on Chapel Street. The move was centred around creating an environment that promotes productivity and wellbeing.
