Leeds-based creative and full service marketing agency Brass, is celebrating £200k of business following a trio of new account wins, all hailing from Yorkshire.

In the past few months, the agency has added bus service provider First Bus York, homeware brand Dowsing & Reynolds and connected care and health technology solutions manufacturer Tunstall Healthcare to its growing client base.

First Bus and Brass have enjoyed a working relationship that has spanned over 10 years. The most recent brief will see the agency launch York Park & Ride, a fleet of 21 new electric buses in York, following a competitive pitching process. The project involves a highly-targeted regional communications plan to drive awareness and excite new and current transport users.

Online design-led interiors Dowsing & Reynolds will open its first store in Leeds' Victoria Quarter this month. Brass will manage the launch strategy, overseeing the PR, event management and paid media.

Tunstall Healthcare has pioneered the use of technology for over 60 years, supporting those requiring care and health intervention by allowing them to live more independently at home. As the newly-appointed retained PR agency, Brass will be responsible for raising awareness of Tunstall across a diverse audience and help educate on the organisation’s products and services.

Lucy Baird, Head of PR, said: “We’re delighted with the latest spate of account wins at Brass and best of all, they’re all based in Yorkshire, highlighting our unrivalled reputation in the region for creative, integrated PR campaigns.”

Kevin Anderson, Marketing director at Tunstall Healthcare, said: “The pitch presented by Brass really excited us, they delivered exceptionally against the brief and the team’s expertise really shone through. We’ve been impressed from the word go as the PR team tirelessly deliver results that are transforming our overall marketing approach.”
