Award winning independent creative agency and video games marketing specialist, Diva, has opened a brand new studio space in central Bristol after outgrowing their Queen Square HQ. The 4,000 square foot of gorgeous loft-style workspace on Redcliffe Street will provide additional capacity for the fast growing creative and client services teams.
Managing Director and co-founder, Andy Barnes, said “The agency has experienced 40% year on year growth over the past three years in Queen Square, further expanding our footprint within the video games sector, but also quickly outgrowing our home in the process. The new studio is in a fantastic location in Redcliffe, near to the waterfront and to the station and it offers our creative teams much improved collaborative workspaces and client meeting spaces.”
A staff of 30 designers, creatives, developers and digital marketeers have moved across to the new space, comprising of a large open plan studio, as well as a new video editing and gaming suite, a number of formal meeting rooms and informal break out spaces, a library for quieter working, a large social kitchen-dining area, and a dedicated client services suite.
