Impression Creative Industry Exemplar from Growing Nottingham

Creative Industry exemplar from Growing Nottingham


Impression is a digital marketing agency which is based in the heart of Nottingham’s Creative Quarter. It was founded in November 2012 by Aaron Dicks and Tom Craig (pictured right) and started trading officially in the summer of 2014. Since its inception, Impression has grown quickly from a team of two to a team of more than 20 digital marketing, design and web development professionals.

Impression was experiencing record growth and needed to grow its team to deliver new client projects.

In summer 2015, Impression was keen to recruit local graduates and with its graduate scheme and contribution from Nottingham City Council, student recruitment became the right choice and helped the company to grow and to make new jobs for local graduates in the process.

Impression invests in high quality hardware and this comes at a cost. We had 3 new members of staff ready to join last summer and the grant from NBV supported us in purchasing part funded hardware for these employees.

The funding and support we received helped us to continue our growth and today, we’re proud to be one of the area’s biggest digital marketing agencies, continuing to grow and recruit locally.
