A look back at 2020

2020 has certainly been an unforgettable year – and not one we could have ever predicted. With both our personal and professional lives completely transformed, and having to adapt to the ever-changing news, it’s safe to say we’re all hoping for a much more positive 2021.

As challenging as this year has been, it hasn’t all been bad; from Zoom quizzes to award ceremonies, this year has certainly seen it all!

We welcomed

2020 saw us welcome new members to our Media Village team.

Austin joined the team in summer as our in-house web developer. He is a technical whizz when it comes to coding, designing, and building successful business websites. He’s been a great addition to our team and has produced some amazing work.

We celebrated

Our sales manager, Anthony, welcomed his beautiful baby girl, Penelope.

Our studio manager, Nathan, got engaged and is welcoming a baby boy very soon.

We were finalists…

We were honoured to be a finalist for the Red Rose Creative Business category. Although we didn’t win, we all had a fantastic night and were honoured to be nominated alongside so many other creative businesses.

Did you see this…?

Earlier this year, we sponsored Blackburn Hawks golf day.

We were also proud sponsors of Blackburn Rovers match day (back when we could all go to the matches).

Our sales manager, Anthony, featured on Ribble FM back in March, discussing all things marketing and Media Village.

We ran our annual Christmas collection for Blackburn Foodbank and this was a huge success. Just look at how many items we collected which really will make a huge difference. This year we even designed and printed our own colouring books for the Foodbank collection.

In between all of that, we also did this..

It wasn’t all serious…this year we once again had our annual Red Fern Vs Media Village football tournament.

We also all took part in some National Fitness Day fun in collaboration with our client Let’s Move Hyndburn. This was a fun day in the office.

Some of our office staff dressed up for Halloween – and wow, did they dress up!

We all carved pumpkins, the designer challenge was born and we shared things we had loved during lockdown to stay positive
