Manifesto, best known for its work with clients including Cancer Research UK, Marie Curie, The Children's Society, The National Trust, Tata Steel and more, has announced its merger with creative and content agency, Creative Cherry.

Award-winning agile digital agency, Manifesto will head up the new combined agency that will focus on delivering engaging content and tech solutions, and meaningful audience-centered digital experiences. The founders of Creative Cherry - Mark Ellis, Tom Chapman and Al Hutchison - will take up positions of creative director, strategy director and motion content director respectively, with the wider Creative Cherry team continuing in their current roles in the combined agency.

The merger gives Manifesto far wider capabilities and offerings to its clients, who are mainly from the charity sector. Manifesto will now offer a broader range of services across creative, user experience, content and content strategy services including in-house film, animation and editing.

Jim Bowes, CEO and co-founder of Manifesto said: "We're thrilled to welcome the Creative Cherry team to Manifesto. Cherry has proven skills in connecting big brands and their audiences through carefully thought out, creative and strategic content - we're truly excited by the disruptive force that we can become together."

"With ever more marketing spend moving to digital, this is a great time for a team of creatives and technologists to create the next generation of agency. That's what we're going to do. We're looking forward to integrating the Cherry team into the Manifesto family," he added.

Mark Ellis, director at Creative Cherry said: "We're very excited to be joining forces with Manifesto, a successful and highly regarded agency. They are a perfect match for Creative Cherry. Our combined goal is to create ground-breaking new opportunities for our clients, by bringing creativity and technology together."
