Martin Aylesworth Syvertson and I opened Aylesworth Fleming in a tiny office suite on Poole Hill, Bournemouth, on this day 30 years ago, 4th March, 1985.
From slightly crazy starts, great businesses can be built. We now employ more than 100 people in offices in Bournemouth, London, Edinburgh, Leicester and Manchester, as well as in remote locations across the country. We’re one of the UK’s biggest independent marketing agencies.
I want to turn the clocks back for a moment and share some of our most important milestones.
Here’s a video we made to show you this journey:
We began in an age when print media, TV and cinema were king. Today we operate in a much more complex, digitally-focused environment. We continue to evolve and our digital credentials are second to none. However, our heritage allows us to know where more traditional marketing has a role.
I’d like to think that the principles and values that made us what we are over the last 30 years still hold sway. Here’s to the next 30 years!
