Amplify Creative Marketing came to life when its two founders, Richard Oliver and Simon Frost, decided that their shared passion for modern and clean website design, combined with their experience in marketing, corporate public relations, and communications, would be able to help established and fledgling brands achieve measurable success. We have designed several websites for the financial technology sector, the musical instrument retail market, and other start up businesses alike.
Amplify creative are trusted by multinational brands to run their social media accounts as well as provide overall marketing consultancy, design experience, and e-commerce website design services. We offer a full stack marketing capability to help inject creative brilliance into every business we partner with.
Based in Sussex and Whiteley, Hampshire, UK, we are a dedicated team of industry professionals that offer a realistic solution for companies that cannot afford a full-time marketing or website maintenance facility or traditional agencies. Amplify Creative have helped several businesses get their first foot on the ladder to success – from the tiniest of one person start-ups all the way to helping take multinational businesses through flotation on the stock market.
