From toilet roll shortages to our England team reaching the Euros final, 2021 has been a whirlwind for all of us here in the UK, but as the year ends it’s good to look back and think about those moments that have been great! – and here at Hydra Creative, we have had plenty of great moments!

Each member of the Hydra team has worked especially hard this year, and we have had some incredibly successful campaigns and partnerships, including three of Sheffield’s finest sports teams.

We kicked off the year in January with an exciting client win, the world’s first football club, Sheffield FC. The football team enlisted our SEO experts, to help them kickstart their Google search rankings, which has stemmed exceptional results.

In July, we started our partnership with England’s first women’s basketball team, Sheffield Hatters. We have worked closely with the charity to update and revamp the Sheffield Hatters logo to better represent their 60th year as a team.

Alongside the new logo, our design team have also created a new sponsorship brochure for the club. We are currently in the process of designing a brand-new Sheffield Hatters website, which will launch in the new year.

Our most recent partnership has us teaming up with the Sheffield Steelers, who are celebrating their 30th year as a team this year. The partnership has seen our Hydra branding feature around the Sheffield Arena, on the team’s kit, and online through the Steelers’ social media platforms!

We have loved supporting all three teams in 2021 and cannot wait to see what they all achieve in 2022!

An additional achievement is our award nominations with Sheffield Business Awards 2021. We have been nominated in not one but two categories this year. We would like to say congratulations to M&T Haylage and South Yorkshire TravelMaster who collaborated with us on these projects.

Further to the company’s success, we have welcomed seven new members of staff, Hannah, and Jana our studio assistants, Alex and Jess our account managers, Tyler who is a Multimedia Designer, Izzy a graduate designer, and Wes an experienced web developer.

It’s heartening that we are in a position to take on new local talent, they’re all highly creative and committed professionals with a huge passion for their specialisms. They are a fantastic addition to our team.

Overall, 2021 has been a successful year here at Hydra Creative, and to celebrate this we have launched our brand-new website. The new site showcases our work from both previous and ongoing clients – you can even look at the ‘about us’ section to see photos of the team and get to know us better.

Head over to the new site, see the services that we offer and get in touch if you think we can help!

As well as our new website, we are additionally celebrating our 13th birthday! 13 years of helping businesses achieve their goals, 13 years of growing a successful digital agency, and 13 years of working hard as a team.

Thirteen, unlucky for some, not for Hydra Creative.
