A DESIGN and branding agency in Huddersfield has announced two new appointments.

The Engine Room, which is based in the Media Centre, Northumberland Street, and celebrates its 10th anniversary in October, has expanded its team to six members with the arrival of Helen Greenwood (right) and Nikki Taylor (left), pictured with operations director Helen Whitehead..

Ms Greenwood, of Wakefield, has worked for more than seven years in the design industry before joining The Engine Room. She studied graphic media communications at Bradford College and specialises in brand identity, advertising and website design.

She said: “The Engine Room are a lively bunch and have made me feel very welcome since day one. Its like I've been here much longer – in a good way!”

Ms Greenwood has already worked on a variety of jobs and begun building strong relationships with clients and suppliers.

Nikki Taylor has begun a 12-month marketing placement with The Engine Room as part of a degree at Huddersfield University. She has just completed her second year studying marketing with PR.

Her previous experience lies in the supermarket retail sector, where she worked in commercial and product promotion. She will be involved in organising plans for the company’s 10th birthday celebrations, working in an account management role with clients and assisting the design studio.
