Muckle Media opens new Aberdeen office

By John Glover

Muckle Media has opened its first office in Aberdeen and has recruited two senior members of staff.

The communications agency hired Jess Murphy and Claire Emslie to work in the new outpost at neospace.

Murphy will work as a public relation specialist and senior account manager, while Emslie will be studio manager and designer.

They will work with Muckle Media’s wider Scottish management team to help grow the agency’s client base in Aberdeen.

Muckle Media is also launching two new offerings, with the creation of a design studio led by Emslie and a new practice dedicated to COP26 communications, in the run up and following the climate conference in Glasgow.

Murphy joins the agency from her recent role as PR and communications manager at Aberdeen Inspired, the city centre business improvement district. Prior to this she worked in various PR agencies and also as a reporter at the Press & Journal.

Emslie joins from being a self-employed creative, running her own online design business. Prior to this, she worked as a communications coordinator for drilling and engineering contractor KCA DEUTAG.

Murphy said: "As the North East continues to work through the recovery phase, promoting your business and its offering in the right way has never been more important and Muckle is well placed to deliver that."

Emslie added: "I believe clear communications, supported by strong visual elements, helps organisations stand out and reach their potential, so I'm thrilled to take on the challenge of launching a new design offering, and developing the studio to build out the capacities in this area."
