Branding agency Orb has boosted its team in Birmingham following a string of new client wins.
The firm, which helps companies improve their branding and marketing presence, has won briefs from professional and financial services firm KPMG, sexual health initiative Umbrella, global parts' supplier EU Automation and Birmingham law firm Anthony Collins.
It has worked with KPMG Enterprise on a research project for a product tailored for the growing small business market.
The project enabled KPMG Enterprise to identify its place in the market and understand how to connect better with this target audience.
Orb, which won the communications category at the 2014 Birmingham Post Business Awards, is also working with Umbrella, a new initiative led by University Hospitals Birmingham, on behalf of Birmingham City Council and Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council, to offer a sexual heath service for the wider area.
Orb has created a new brand for Umbrella and is working with the team on its launch with partners, stakeholders and the public.
The team has also added four new faces to its payroll in recent months including a new head of business development.
Anthony Bisseker was previously corporate relations manager at the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and business development manager at Marketing Birmingham.
Also joining the team are Jodie Price as account manager, Helen Page as designer and Ricky Malhi as creative strategist.
Managing director Rob Bloxham said: "Simplicity in communication can be difficult but it's what we specialise in and what is fuelling our growth.
"By thoroughly understanding our clients and their markets, we help them make their message stand out. Focusing on the growing SME market makes sense for our approach.
"Entrepreneurs and those driving fast growing businesses have less time and resources than their bigger competitors. They need results but they are also willing to challenge and do things differently."
