A creative design agency from Evesham is celebrating its 10th anniversary with an award win.

Not only is Areca Design celebrating 10 years of providing marketing support for businesses and community groups, but the agency has also just been awarded the title of Midlands Digital Communications Business 2019.

Managing director Mick Hurst was presented with the winner’s trophy at the prestigious Athena Conference Venue in Leicester on Friday 8th March.

The packed out, black-tie event had representatives of businesses from throughout the midlands, covering a huge region from as far afield as Herefordshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Birmingham.

In October last year, Mick presented to the panel of judges in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style interview.

Areca Design’s technical innovations in web and mobile app development, were a hit with the judges and the award recognised that the judges could see the potential for themselves.

Mick said: “After 10 years of hard work and dedication in providing innovative solutions and great customer service, it is an honour to have this recognition for the entire Areca Design team past and present.

“Due to the demand for our design and digital services we have also recently moved offices to allow our business to expand.

“I foresee that in the near future we may have to recruit more staff to build our eleven-strong team – which is a good sign especially in the current uncertain business climate.”

Now located in Market Place, Evesham, the creative agency offers the full marketing suite, including brand design and development, exhibitions, signage and display solutions.

Mick added: “Over the last 10 years we have worked with some very prestigious national organisations and well known tourist destinations throughout the UK, along with supporting many local businesses and start-ups.

"The next 10 years looks even more exciting as we help develop innovative and engaging technologies to educate and entertain."

Last week, The Worcester News reported that the finalists have been revealed for the 2019 Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.

The awards celebrate excellence in 14 different areas of business.

A Chamber of Commerce spokesman said: “The number of applications received this year exceeded expectations and were of an extremely high standard making this year the hardest to judge yet."
