Crowd may operate from locations around the world, but we began in Bournemouth, Dorset on England’s south coast.


Bournemouth provides the perfect base for empire building in the digital marketing space. Close to London, two universities offering world class creative courses and an environment that fosters creativity, it’s become home to hundreds of agencies making it one of the fastest growing digital hubs in the UK.

From this pool of talent we have recruited across the diverse range of disciplines that go to build our creative team. From designers, coders and social media experts to strategists and managers, the wealth of experience available in Bournemouth leads to a healthy careers ecosystem to draw from.

Our MD Jamie Sergeant works closely with both universities and the town council to promote and build on Bournemouth’s successes.

As well as lecturing at the Universities on topics ranging from careers development and creativity, he also frequently speaks at local business events where he provides local businesses with invaluable insights in to marketing and how to utilise digital channels.

“The success of Bournemouth as a creative digital hub is important to me,” says Jamie. “A thriving, successful community benefits everyone whether they work in digital or not.”

Jamie has also been busy promoting British creativity abroad and not just through the work produced by Crowd for clients around the world. As part of several delegations, he has extolled the benefits of Bournemouth on trips to the USA and China.

“Being from Bournemouth I’m particularly proud of what it has become and where it could go and I look forward to doing all I can to promote this great seaside town as the global centre of creative excellence I know it is.”
