Altrincham-based creative marketing agency Sunny Thinking is celebrating its 10th birthday. For the last decade the team has developed an award-winning reputation for their advertising, branding, design and marketing work. They have enjoyed relationships with a wide range of clients including the NHS, buzz Manchester Health & Wellbeing Service, GreaterSport, Making Space, Manchester Metropolitan University, Lancashire Wildlife Trust, Ombudsman Services, Mornflake Cereals and Soreen.
The agency was established by managing director Jonathan Reed in 2008, and has a passion for working with like-minded, forward thinking clients and partners who are committed to a positive, healthy, fun, prosperous and sustainable future. They love to work in the health and wellbeing sectors and with family focussed brands and businesses. It’s this focus and philosophy of the agency that Reed thinks sets Sunny Thinking apart.
“I’m hugely proud to be celebrating our 10th birthday and that we’ve stayed true to our beliefs and remained authentic through and through. The marketing landscape has changed out of all recognition in the last decade. Life is faster paced and in a digital world we are surrounded by automation and manufactured templated approaches. Whilst we obviously embrace digital marketing, we are champions of life offline and also the power of creativity in creating unique and personalised brand stories,” explained Reed.
The agency remains boutique in size but has exciting plans for the future. “We will remain small as an agency as I firmly belief that clients benefit from that level of personal and passionate expertise. We’re a people-oriented business at the end of the day. We also love our base in Altrincham, a town that is really thriving. Building on that though and on our relationships further afield, we are also progressing with plans with clients in the rest of the UK as well as overseas including Australia, Canada, Denmark and US,” added Reed, who is originally from Leicester and moved to Manchester in 2005.
To mark their tenth anniversary, Sunny Thinking are taking part in 10 charity challenges for their charity of the year, The Stroke Association. “Each year we give a percentage of our time and profits to help others. This year we are proud to be supporting The Stroke Association – a charity that does so much wonderful work.’
