Two brothers from Berkhamsted have set up a video production and creative agency to support aspirational businesses in Dacorum.

Advertising creative director, Oliver Francis, and former Sky Sports CEO, Barney Francis, wanted to help local companies re-launch themselves by offering free creative development for their marketing projects.

Former Berkhamsted School student, Oliver, co-founder of Francis Creative, said: “Whether you’re a startup or an established business, advertising doesn’t have to be a drama, nor does it need to be expensive.

"Barney and I have spent enough time wading through red tape at big businesses to appreciate flexible and nimble content creation.”

Ex-Ashlyns pupil, Barney - who is also co-founder of Francis Creative - went on to run Sky Sports for a decade and is now enjoying the freedom of a smaller business.

He said: “We promise ideas for tomorrow, by tomorrow.

"So, to help a few local companies really kick-start again after lockdown, we’re offering a complimentary creative consultation to the first three Dacorum businesses that get in touch."
