We have appointed Anthea Hughes, a creative specialist with over 20 years’ experience in agency life including print, digital, 3D and brand, to the position of Account Director.

Previously a Senior Project Manager at Red Stone, Anthea gained a wealth of experience in end-to-end project management for the creative and branding agency where she worked with clients such as Bank of England, BBC and The Royal Academy.

Anthea also worked as an Account Director for Redback Design Limited where she was responsible for client services, business development and generating growth within the company.

Commenting on her new position, Anthea said:

“I jumped at the opportunity to work at KISS and am really excited to be here: the agency has a great buzz and is very much part of the Cambridge success story. KISS has a focussed strategic approach, cut-through creative and a range of blue-chip accounts – it’s an irresistible combination.”
