When your passion meets your business that’s when the magic happens and it shows through in the Agency Kilo studio at the Bournemouth Eagle Lab.
I was lucky enough to grab some time with Paul, Founder of Agency Kilo, to understand more about his exciting business and see how Agency Kilo is looking to continue expanding their team in the next few years.
During Paul’s time at the Lab he has seen the business grow organically, just recently welcoming Rose to the team full-time after a placement year with the studio.
Being the Lab Manager of the space and seeing the team everyday working on projects, you can see that they share an incredible passion for what they do.
The versatility of the team’s skills shine through with the variety of businesses they work with, which includes architects, developers and events companies to name a few.
With a history of working with companies across the world, Paul prides the company on their ability to complete high quality creative work in short spaces of time.
Recently working with an architectural design team in the USA with daily Skype calls, long hours and adjusting to the different time zones. The hard work paid off with some great imagery of different projects from a New England College campus, a new dockland Plaza building in Boston and new apartments in an up and coming area of Baltimore.
The impact that the imagery can have is validated by the successful history of Agency Kilo’s client pitches.
Paul tells me about how an art director wanted to pitch to a prominent Sheik in Dubai to allow an art installation and exhibition space in one of the Sheik’s malls.
The type of business man that is difficult enough to even get in front of let alone pitch to, the client had less than 5 minutes to wow the Sheik but he agreed to go ahead with the proposal within seconds of seeing the imagery and without even reading any of the other documentation.
Again, with a UK company tendering for a new sports complex and up against around 10 other applications, with help of Agency Kilo’s work they were then one of two applications sent straight to a short list and interview, going on to win the project!
Though Paul remains humble about his clearly impressive work, you can see why clients are eager to work with the company.
With the company’s successes and more exciting projects being asked of them, Paul is looking to expand his team. If you’re interested in finding out more about Agency Kilo’s work or to find out more about job opportunities within the company, you can find them at agencykilo.com.
