The agency was launched in January this year by Illuminate Communications founder Helen Campbell and Manifest London’s Camilla Brown.

Campbell joined this week after 12 years as editor of Metro, which he joined after senior jobs at the Daily Mail and Daily Express. ,

He said he would be bringing his media experience and contacts to the agency, which has clients including Sarah Beeny’s online estate agent Tepilo and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

"They wanted someone with proper old fashioned Fleet Street experience who can spot where the headlines are," he said, adding: "They are so full of life and really know when to break the rules."

The agency recently won three new clients in one week: charities Knowledge to Action Foundation and Fcancer, and an unnamed consumer tech client which is set to launch a retail proposition.
