Hive gets busy at The Pie Factory

Creative agency Hive has become the latest firm to open its doors at The Pie Factory in MediaCityUK.

Following in the footsteps of other recently signed tenants – including Web Potential, TSL and Toasted Productions – the ad and design agency is looking to take advantage of the former ‘freshbake’ factory’s facilities.

Founder Edwin Jones, who has worked with agencies such as TBWA and Poulter’s, commented: “We had a great 2009 which saw us shoot our first TV commercial, in South Africa of all places, for a major consumer brand (our crack research team believes it to be the Simoniz ad below, Ed) .

“We are determined to build on that success and being in The Pie Factory, with its prestigious location, will allow us to do that.”

Jones formed the company in 2006.

Sinead Greenaway, CEO of Peel Media, added: “We hope the agency benefits from being part of the thriving creative community at the heart of MediaCityUK”.
