An insight into Spark Agency

Doing business with someone can be daunting. We want to give you some insight into who we are and why you should trust us to help your business flourish.

The Spark Agency story

Spark Agency was founded in October 2016 by Darren Dunn with Sean Price as a Non-Executive Director. Spark Agency is a Derby based digital marketing agency specialising in Responsive Web Design & Web Development, SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), Social Media Management and Branding.

The drive and motivation behind Spark Agency is the desire to have the ability to positively impact other business' success through enabling their digital marketing to reach the audience it deserves.

Just days after launching Spark Agency, we merged with esports web design agency Duality Media, hiring Paul Harrison as a Director of Spark Agency. This has enabled us to operate with a compact and focused team that is working towards setting strong foundations for the growth of Spark Agency.

Our Vision

Spark Agency currently consits of a four man team with the goal of being known as one of Derby’s leading digital marketing agencies. To achieve this we will look to consistently expand our client base, range of services and skills that our team of digital experts can offer.

We want to grow with the core aim to be a truly client focused brand that works with the client to create the best products and service experience that we possibly can. To ensure we continue to achieve this we create an internal obligation to strive to continually surpass the client's expectations.

Darren Dunn - Digital Marketing

Hi, I’m Darren. I’m 21 years old and for the past 5 years digital marketing and web design has been my life in Derby. I seemed to have developed an addiction to seeing businesses grow online through extensive digital marketing strategies and campaigns.

I left college back in 2012 and immediately focused on increasing my web design skills from the city of Derby. Business has always been a passion of mine so starting a digital marketing agency in Derby was a no brainer. When I stopped solely looking at a website from the perspective of a consumer, and began to visualise the structure and process it took to develop that website, that I knew I would be driven towards helping businesses develop their own website and digital marketing strategies.

Once my web design and social media skills were polished, I joined a digital marketing agency in Derby. In late 2016, I was approached by Sean Price to partner up to create our own digital agency, and on October 3rd 2016 Spark Agency was born.

I have clear goals for Spark Agency; the aim is to become one of the leading digital marketing and web design agencies in Derby. I have an incredible passion for design, we’re not only motivated to get results, we’re motivated to produce beautiful designs, offering our clients an experience like no other.

Paul Harrison - Our Derby web designer

Hi, my name is Paul and I’m 22 years old. I recently graduated from the University of Derby with a BA (Hons) degree in Business Studies which was always an area of academia that I was drawn to. It was this that motivated me to start my sole trader business at the age of 16 that focused solely on developing websites and providing graphical design for the niche market of esports and competitive gaming under the name of DualityMedia.

Although I was only young I had started to pursue a skill set that seemed to be lacking within the gaming market. By focusing on a specialist area that I had personal experience with it resulted in me rarely working on web design in Derby but opened many unique experiences working with clients remotely from around the world. Although website design for both esports and business clients utilise the exact same skills and creativity I had managed to secure a position as one of the few esports website design businesses. It was this that lead to me working with the world’s best World of Warcraft team Method that involved the creation and design of multiple systems that each received high traffic.

As a result of realising how passionate I was for many of the areas that make up digital marketing (especially website design) and the opportunities that working in a digital marketing agency would provide me I jumped at the offer to join Spark Agency. Since focusing on web design in Derby I have found how the prospect of helping to improve the digital presence of local businesses is as exciting as the first day I discovered website design.
