Lincolnshire creatives born again with new agency

Ben Trafford & Shaun Cole

Two well-known Lincolnshire marketing and design experts have launched their own creative agency.

Shaun Cole and Ben Trafford have founded the Born Agency to provide a full complement of marketing and design services. They bring a wealth of experience between them, with past campaigns for the likes of Paul Smith, Crimestoppers, Microsoft, Bing and Gordon Ramsay.

The duo were previously at Ideafuel – which later became IF Creative – before striking out on their own.

Cole and Trafford are revelling in the opportunity to be “born again” and have already hit the ground running, winning a number of new clients.

Cole said: “Taking the leap from working in a creative agency to owning one is a big step for both of us, but it’s the right time, as we have absolute belief that there are plenty of opportunities in Lincolnshire to build a thriving creative agency that will blow the socks off our clients.

“Central to the launch of Born is our unique Trigger Points approach – where we enable clients to define the reasons why business and individuals take action as a response to marketing stimulus”.

Trafford added: “We feel very lucky that all the initial feedback from our contacts across the Lincolnshire business community has been very positive, and it’s exciting to have a genuine sense of freedom to deliver creative work that we are very passionate about.

“We’re also very focused on delivering meaningful campaigns that cause a chain reaction of tangible results that deliver an impressive return on investment”.
