It’s definitely safe to say this year has been one we won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
It’s been tough and we could all list off the endless negatives, but instead we’ve decided to take a
look at the positives from this year (we love a pozzy vibe here at Walnut) as we head towards
New Staff Members
When the pandemic hit in March, we never would have thought we’d be ending the year with six
new members of staff.
In the summer we welcomed Emily Q as one of our Content Marketing Coordinators, followed by
Adam who joined our talented team of web developers.
More recently, we welcomed Sian as another Web Developer, Freya as a PPC and Social Media
Executive, Jessie as a PR apprentice and Joe as a Design Intern. Phew!
We feel very lucky that we were able to invest in our team this year, allowing us to grow further
and expand our skillset.
We also managed to relocate in 2020, moving into the DMC 2.0, just across the road from our old
office at the original DMC!
The new state-of-the-art digital hub has been custom built for creative companies, offering
premium office space and the chance for us to move into a larger office.
Despite the fact that most of us have been working from home for a lot of this year, our new office
is already feeling like home, plus we’re still within walking distance from Greggs, woo!
Celebrated Five Years As A Business
We also hit another milestone, celebrating our 5th birthday (cue the party poppers and balloons)!
The time has absolutely flown, but we feel very proud of our team for all of their hard work over
the years, which has got us to where we are. What started off as a one-man band has grown into
a big family, working on a range of clients all over the globe.
Looking at what we’ve managed to achieve in the last five years, we’re definitely looking forward
to the next five!
Promotions Across The Board
Despite the circumstances, and our homes becoming our new offices for much of the year, our
team has thrived. We’ve seen progression in all of our teams, including Emily S being promoted to
Senior Graphic Designer and Tom to Lead Web Developer.
Alisha’s role also changed, moving from a Social Media Executive to a Digital Content Executive
as her skillset expanded.
Our team has also been investing in training throughout the year, as we strive to always improve
Busiest Year To Date
We also have had our busiest year to date!
We’re grateful for all of our clients, old and new, for supporting us throughout this year, and
despite many obstacles our Walnutters have managed to work harder than ever, seeing a surge in
the amount of work we’ve had coming in and going out.
As we head into 2021, we’re looking forward to working on some new and exciting projects,
continuing to elevate our current client base, and we also have a big announcement that we hope
to reveal very soon.
From all of us at Walnut, Merry Christmas and we hope you all have a Happy New Year!
