Having identified a need for a brand new role at Createful, we embarked on one of the most intensive and challenging recruitment processes in the history of our agency! The response received was phenomenal and the sheer quality of applicants demonstrated how attractive the prospect of a career with Createful has become.
We were very recently joined by the lovely & talented Sophie, who studies Media Production at Bournemouth University. She first found out about Createful back in April of this year when a university assignment led her to our offices to record some interviews. Let’s hear what she has to say about her time with us…
This week we had our summer team day! We took a break from the office, got into our sportswear and made our way to Moors Valley Country Park. Full of excitement and nerves, the sun was shining & we were ready. A day away from the screen actually taught us a lot; we really want to own Segways, some of us aren’t too keen on heights, but most importantly, we are great at working as a team!

That’s what I was continuously told during my second year. Thankfully, I can return to uni in September, without a shadow of a doubt that I had the BEST placement experience at Createful.
In case you missed it (maybe you live in space….), Pokémon Go has burst into our lives over the last week whether we like it or not. Within the Createful Studio, opinion is divided: is this the best thing to happen within apps/games in a long time, or it is adding to the generational issue of conversations dying out and heads constantly buried in mobile phone screens?… Read more
We often have a sink full of mugs, that everyone swears they didn’t leave. It seems we don’t really enjoy washing up at Createful, well not that kind anyway… We recently ‘washed up’ our website refresh project with Anglo-Continental and found it to be a very useful approach for reflecting on our work.
