A DIGITAL agency has secured a valuable tender with one of East Lancashire's major housing associations.

+24 Marketing has been named as the supplier of integrated marketing services for Burnley-based Calico.

Sam Keenan, their marketing manager, said: "We are delighted to be working with The Calico Group, an organisation whose strong values align closely with ours."

Darryl Baker, Calico's communications head, added: "We believe this has the makings of an excellent partnership, and it’s an exciting time for The Calico Group. We can’t wait to start working with them.”

Early work, as part of the link-up with the School Lane based agency, has seen +24 create a new livery for Calico's van fleet.

The contract covers branding, graphic design and web development, as well as wide-ranging support for the group's in-house media and communications team

Company founder Dave Walker added: "Winning this competitive tender to become Calico’s integrated marketing agency is testament to our track-record and the hard work of our talented team as we continue to deliver fantastic results-driven work for our clients."
