Richard Hague and Oliver Webley have joined WRG’s creative department in Manchester.

With more than 14 years design experience, Hague joins WRG as graphic designer from graphic design and branding studio Hague & Hague which he co-founded in 2014.

Charlotte Smithson, creative director at WRG, said: "We are delighted to welcome Rick and Oli to our creative team. They’ll be kept on their toes.

"At WRG we don’t limit the creatives to specific channels or clients, this means that they’ll have the opportunity to work across our broad range of clients and their designs will flex across multiple digital and print executions."

Hague has worked with clothing brands Bench and Bernard Weatherill of Saville Row as well as tech company Cisco and real estate business Savills.

Webley is a junior designer who graduated this year with a first-class degree from Staffordshire University. His strong portfolio earned him a WRG internship.
