We welcome Orb + Elonex as a main partner for BDF 2019

Posted on:

We are excited to announce Birmingham’s Orb + Elonex will be joining as a Main Partner for this year’s festival.

ORB + Elonex have recently partnered together as part of the Elonex Group to bring businesses and creatives throughout the UK a full-lifecycle brand solution, complementing heavy hitting strategy and identities with digital out of home and experiential spaces to help define and elevate brands across sectors.

ORB are a brand specialist agency based in Birmingham working to spread brand expertise outside of the agency world and directly into the client’s, immersing a team into their clients’ businesses and growing a team of creative specialists for the job at hand. Elonex is a digital out of home specialist helping brands reach new heights with over 3,000 screens throughout the UK. From sports arenas to exhibition centres, shopping malls to roadside, Elonex has a solution to make digital out of home accessible to brands of all sizes.

As a recently awarded Fast Track 100 business, Elonex hopes their partnership with ORB continues to create a more creative and innovative staff culture, with their eyes on being appointed a Best Place to Work. They’re continuously looking at building connections with creative freelancers and growing their team to inject fresh perspectives and energy into the business. If you’re interested in getting to know them, the Design Festival is a great opportunity to hear in-person what they’re about.

Together, ORB and Elonex are on a mission to better connect the creative world with the media world, making the importance and commerciality of brand an even bigger conversation in the sector and in the business community. Elonex Group CEO Nick Smith commented, “We’ve got to do a better job of connecting our industries, and it starts with putting the Birmingham creative scene on the map by linking our local specialists together and working collaboratively to find a way forward. We hope our recent partnership with ORB is living proof that we’re better together.”

As a new partner for this year we spoke to Rob Bloxham, CEO of ORB on why Orb + Elonex felt it was a good fit for them to come on board this year…

“To the ORB + Elonex team, being a main sponsor of the Birmingham Design Festival was just the beginning of fuelling more ways for the industry to connect and starting more conversations around a more collaborative future. “As soon as we saw what this festival was about we knew we had to get behind it. We live in such a diverse city with so many amazing creative specialists. We want to nurture and reward those people for everything they bring to our sector.”
