Who are the top creative companies in the South West of England?
I must confess that until this week I’d never heard of a company called Twofour. They are a 280 person strong, £29m turnover TV and film business based in Plymouth.
This was just one of the new facts I learned from The Top 100 South West Creative Companies League Table – 2009″, put together by Bristol Media. This guide is the first ever round up of all the major TV, digital, publishing, PR, design and marketing companies from across the region in one list, ranked by turnover.
The South West boasts some nationally known names such as Future Publishing, McCann Erickson and Bray Leino. And with Bristol-based Aardman Animations the region is home to a creative company with a truly international reputation.
But what really stands out for me from the Top 100 list is its diversity and the quality of the work being produced by relatively small, but highly talented firms.
