Bournemouth-based agency Seventa has launched a sister company called Innovative Hire that offers services including prop hire and custom builds.

Founder and director Simon Brooks explained that Innovative Hire was set up because of a demand from clients for creative props and furniture that were difficult to find, so they started making them themselves. 

"We’ve got a warehouse full of unique props and equipment in Bournemouth with in-house carpenters and prop makers for custom builds. We’ve got a full production side here that can produce all sorts of branded items for our clients.

"Converted shipping container bars have been very popular, we’ve used them as juice bars for Lush when they’ve had conferences going on. We’ve used them as cocktail bars at festivals and at corporate events as tea and coffee bars. One of them has been installed at a local corporate for 26 weeks, so we get long-term hires too."

At the same time, Seventa has re-launched its website with a brand new design, which Brooks says better showcases the kind of work they have been doing and the clients they work for. And the agency also has plans afoot to open a London office next year.

"We’ve got some very cool clients and love the work we do but ultimately our website didn't show that," said Brooks. "I think it was very important after a few awards and wins that we needed to get our brand and website back up to where it should be."
