Acorn Marketing (Cumbria) Ltd was established in May 2011, when I returned to my Cumbrian roots after working for several years in London, Manchester and Liverpool.
I have built up an solid reputation in the area and have excellent links to local suppliers, press contacts and partners. I have worked with a wide range of clients in Cumbria and throughout the UK, have built some great relationships and worked on many exciting projects.
I love marketing, thrive on my business and am passionate about each and every one of my clients. It is not just a job for me…it makes me tick!
I don’t like to blow my own trumpet, however I am a Chartered Marketer with the Chartered Institute of Marketing and was listed as one of the Future 100 Young Business People in the UK in 2011.
I was also voted as one of Cumbria’s Women of the year in 2012, was joint winner in the North Cumbria Business Accelerator Awards in 2013, voted as one of the top 40 business people under 40 by In-Cumbria Magazine and have won Sole Trader of the Year in the Enterprise Vision Awards for the past two years – Check me out!
Leah joined Acorn Marketing in 2016 after studying Politics at University of Liverpool.
During her degree she wore many hats – from the environmentalist to the economist – and the fun she had managing these challenges and communicating them creatively naturally led her to be drawn to a career in Marketing.
Since then she has actively pursued this and has gained valuable skills and experience in her role as Sales and Marketing Executive at Intertain Ltd, before joining us at Acorn Marketing. She is now a positive addition to the Acorn Marketing team helping to develop campaigns and deliver results for clients.
We work with lots of fab suppliers; however we use Jili Allen Creative for a lot of our design projects as she just ‘gets us’. She takes a brief, adds sparkle to it and makes it come alive.
Starting life as a Product Designer, Jili gained a first class honours degree in Consumer Product Design whilst in Edinburgh, before working in the fashion and graphic design industry in both Glasgow and Paris.
In the past she has worked with some fantastic brands such as Ultimo, Border Fine Arts, Michelle Mone and has had work featured in Harrods and Selfridges.
We use Birkett Photography for many projects, from full photo shoots to portraits and product shots (even Lisa’s wedding photos!)
Christopher Birkett developed an interest in photography from a very young age. He took this interest further by studying various photographic courses. He has received several gold awards for his photography, which are images deemed to be of the highest quality.
” I find creating images for companies and organisations gives me great satisfaction, to know that the end result helps them communicate effectively is highly motivating, and a little bit addictive. Plus I get to meet and work with all sorts of people, and travel around the UK as part of my job”.
