A STOCKTON creative agency is one of only two from the region to be nominated in national awards designed to recognise creativity outside London.

Resolution has been shortlisted in The Drum Roses Awards, which are hosted by international marketing website, The Drum.

From more than 80 creative organisations from across the UK who made it as finalists, Resolution is also the only Teesside agency to be included in the shortlisting.

The Drum Roses Awards recognise creative outputs from outside Central London showcasing the many talented creatives who work within the regions, as opposed to the capital city.

The company won the judges’ attention with their Premium Vodka packaging design created for small batch craft distiller Revelry Spirits.

Resolution, which is a strategic communications agency providing PR, marketing and design services, has recently developed its design offering by expanding the team to include an additional graphic designer, Oli Walker.

Resolution’s head of creative Jenni King said: “Having studied at Cleveland College of Art and Design, now The Northern School of Art, as well as Teesside University, my roots have always firmly been in Teesside.

“I’m proud of our sector and the region, so to see our work recognised in national awards is proof that the best creative work doesn’t just have to come from the big cities in the UK. It is evidence that you can create a successful career in your home town.”

Liam Price, co-founder of Revelry Spirits based in Yarm, said: “The Premium Vodka packaging was a blank canvas, we put our trust in Resolution to create direction for our new product and upon seeing the design for the first time, Resolution not only nailed the brief, but exceeded all expectations. The nomination is extremely well-deserved.”

The Drum’s founder and editor-in-chief, Gordon Young said: “The Drum Roses Awards exist to give a voice to and shine a light on, creative talent and agencies outside of London across the country.”

The winners of The Drum Roses Awards will be announced via the Live Awards Show on Wednesday, May 25, at 6.30pm; register to watch at www.thedrum.com/the-drum-awards/events/575.
