A DIGITAL marketing firm that counts publisher Condé Nast and distiller William Grant & Sons among its clients is to embark on an “aggressive” recruitment drive after winning deals with Standard Life and Universal Music.
8 Million Stories managing director Robin Richmond said the agency has developed an interactive campaign for Universal that will let fans chart the fortunes of Grammy-nominated singer Sam Smith.
The company, founded in 2013, has 12 staff in Edinburgh and four in London, where it is moving to larger offices.
Chief executive Lyndsay Menzies said: “We have aggressive hiring plans this year, mainly on the creative and development sides, and we’ll more than double in size over the rest of this calendar year.”
8 Million Stories was set up by the founders of online marketing agency Bigmouthmedia, which merged with Dutch group Lost Boys International before being acquired by French advertising giant Publicis for £332 million in 2012.
