We’re really pleased to announce that our Senior Copywriter, Ryan Gibson, has been promoted and joins Daniel Thompson as Creative Lead. Both have been integral to our growth in recent years and together they will lead the creative direction of the agency and our clients. 

Holdens was founded in 2011 by brothers Ted and Olly Holden with their late father and renowned creative director, Peter Holden, who passed away in 2018. Having cut their teeth under Holden senior, Daniel and Ryan will now work together to drive our creative output forward and lead the wider creative team, as well as our growing freelance network. 

The creative duo has already played a pivotal part in some of our early success this year, delivering a high-profile rebrand and website for the iconic Loch Ness Centre and helping to bring new clients on board such as Estée Lauder fragrance brand Le Labo, landmark Portsmouth visitor attraction Spinnaker Tower and Liverpool music production and sound design studio soda-sound. 

Ted Holden, our managing director, commented: “Daniel and Ryan have both been instrumental in getting the agency to where it is today and we have every confidence they will lead our creative department to deliver award-winning work. 

“They’re both brilliant creatives in their respective fields but make a formidable pairing as a creative team and we’re very excited to see the direction they’re going to take the agency and our clients throughout the rest of this year and beyond.”
