Introducing Freshfield

Freshfield is an award-winning marketing communications firm based in the North West. We originally started life in 1998 and underwent a management team buy-out in 2004, led by Simon Turner and Michael Gregory.

With over 20 advisers, we’re proud to be trusted advisers to leading regional, national and international brands, helping them inform, educate and influence the people that matter.

The specialists

We have a team of intelligent, multi-faceted advisers specialising in Marketing Advice, Branding & Design, PR & Communications, Content, Digital and Video.

Just as significantly, we also specialise in a range of sectors including Advanced Industries, Education, Healthcare, Leisure, Property, Professional & Financial Services and Public Sector.

Several of our team also bring experience of working in regional and national newsrooms as well as inhouse BD and marketing departments.

Freshfield is also the founding partner of The Hyperlocal Everywhere Network, a network of independent creative agencies that work in partnership on multi-territory campaigns.

What Freshfield means for your organisation

We have a mature, integrated tool-box with a perfect mix of skills and disciplines to ensure success in modern marketing communications.

With us on your team, you’ll have the capability to:

  • Define and tell your story
  • Strengthen your reputation
  • Create new relationships
  • Build brand loyalty
  • Make more connections
  • Inform and influence key people
  • Build communities

  • Enhance your growth prospects

We’re people you can trust. Not only to do the right thing but to help you achieve success from your marketing communications. That’s what drives our passionate people; an aspiration to make a difference to our clients.

Our thinking is not just limited to creative ideas. We’re advisers and partners. We look at every situation through the eyes of our clients (and their audiences).

Helping communities

One of our major community projects has been to help create the Winckley Square Community Interest Company (WSCIC) in 2011, alongside five client partners.

Co-founded by our managing director, Simon Turner, the WSCIC secured £1.2m from the Heritage Lottery Fund which helped transform Preston’s historic Winckley Square in 2016.

We support numerous charities including the great people at Space, and make financial donations to community sports teams at Preston Grasshoppers, New Longton Cricket Club and UCLan.
