THREE creative agencies have joined forces to establish a media centre in Colchester, providing a fully integrated PR and marketing offer.

The Oyster Media Hub brings together PR and digital marketing agency Mosaic Publicity, film producer and website developer Version 1.02 and print and design specialist Green Square Communications, which also has a printing plant in Marks Tey,

The three independent businesses have agreed to collaborate following a joint office relocation to the newly refurbished Oyster House in Severalls Lane.

Karen Ainley, chief executive of Mosaic Publicity and formerly BBC TV and radio reporter, said: “The world’s your oyster when it comes to marketing and businesses need to ensure that there is consistency across all of their marketing activities to uphold reputation and convey the right messages to their audience.

“The creation of the Oyster Media Hub, and partnership between our organisations, will make integrated communications achievable. Businesses can access all marketing services under one roof, safe in the knowledge that their suppliers are communicating and working towards a common goal.”

Steve Green, co-founder of Green Square Communications, said: “Our move to Oyster House has not only allowed us to strengthen our links with local businesses, but has also provided an exciting opportunity to work together with other like-minded agencies to boost our service offering to our clients.”

Nigel Campling, owner of Version 1.02, added: “We are thrilled to be involved in this partnership venture; by bringing a host of innovative minds together our marketing creativity knows no bounds.”
