Growing brand consultancy The Engine Room has appointed Nathan Bolton as the team’s new senior designer. But Nathan is no stranger to the company, having first worked for the business as an intern back in 2013.
Nathan – who graduated with a graphic design degree in 2014 – undertook a number of work placements whilst studying at what was then Leeds College of Art. The Engine Room – which was based in The Media Centre at the time – was so impressed with his talents that they offered him a permanent position.
Following 18 months in the designer role, he left to further his career in non-agency positions, working at both the University of Leeds and Huddersfield-headquartered Mamas & Papas. But fast forward to the winter of 2018 and he has gone full circle, returning to the place where his career began.
Commenting on his new role, 26-year-old Nathan said: “I was always impressed with The Engine Room’s strategic approach to brand, and the collaborative exercises they carry out with clients to get to the heart of their purpose and vision. I learned a lot when I worked with the team the first time around, and I’m excited about the chance to supercharge my knowledge even further.
“I’ve always enjoyed the culture here too, so it’s a great time to come back on board, now that we’re in our vibrant new workspace in Mirfield. It almost doesn’t feel like an office!”
Nathan’s appointment coincides with The Engine Room’s move to the newly-converted York Mills – a 19th century piggery which business owners Darren Evans and Lesley Gulliver purchased in January 2017 and began renovating in March of this year.
Expanding on the timeliness of the appointment, founder Darren Evans said: “Nathan has always had a first-class attitude and an extremely strong understanding of the role of brand. His expertise and client-centric approach align perfectly with the direction of our growing business, and further bolster our brand credentials.”
Managing Director Lesley added: “It was important for him to pursue varied opportunities to widen his experience, but we’re naturally delighted that he’s decided to come back to advance his career with us – and armed with an even richer skill-set too. Finding great people isn’t always easy, but it’s a testament to the whole team that he was eager to return.”
