Inside Global Creative Agency CROWD, and their love for Dorset


21 Apr 2021 | Industry News

Crowd is a global creative agency that specialises in amplifying demand for brands around the world.

Their dynamic, multi-national team fuses rich data, digital innovation, and creativity to ensure that any business’ message hits harder, budgets go further, and sales reach higher.

Crowd combines localised knowledge with the support and reach of a worldwide network, allowing brands to succeed both at home and internationally. 

Even though they expanded in the 8 years of activity, having now offices from San Francisco to Sydney, Crowd wants to take a minute and appreciate their first office and also HQ from the beautiful Bournemouth, Dorset. 

The team loves working and living in Dorset for many reasons and here are a few of them: 

Julia says: “Of course the beach is a definite highlight. Going for a morning swim in the freezing water or going for a 4 mile walk along the beach is a free recharge of the soul. Also, being able to visit places like Old Harry’s Rocks, Hengistbury Head and Durdle Door in under one hour is a dream. All this makes Dorset a great place to live. And if you feel like it, the nightlife has plenty to give as well. Less busy, more life. 

Graham likes that Dorset provides a great natural and rural lifestyle with the added bonus of being close to a large town with great entertainment and hospitality. He says that “there are always lots of places to explore and things to do with the family too. It’s a great place to achieve a work life balance”.

Emma said: “Dorset is a fantastic place to live and work. It has stunning natural scenery, from the Jurassic coastline to nature reserves and parks, there is so much to explore and unwind the mind.  But it is also a lively place with plenty of restaurants, culture, and nightlife to enjoy.  In addition to all that, and from a professional point of view, it’s a fast growing hub of creativity and digital innovation – so what more could you want?”

Steve loves Dorset for its inspiration, as it’s hard to beat natural scenery. “Within just a few minutes from being at my laptop I’m able to step out into wide open green spaces, dramatic beaches and head clearing fresh air”. 

Allen said: “Bournemouth is rich with stunning scenery and a 7-mile sandy beach. Once a year there is an airshow, the world’s largest free air display, which attracts over a million visitors. Bournemouth is full of life and has long lost its reputation as a place where only retirees go to live out their life. The high streets have real community spirit. The real test is when you come back from holiday you can’t wait to get home, that’s when you know you live in a great place. And it’s definitely somewhere, I will keep calling my home for many years to come”.
