About us

Our Background

All you need to know….

We don’t want to go into too much detail, as you’re here to find out what we can do for you, not what our Studio Manager’s favourite band is, or who eats what for breakfast!

But here’s a potted history that gives you a flavour of what we’re about.

Starfish was established in 2001 by MD Alison Wright. Before this Alison was a main Board Director of McCann Erickson (Manchester), and previously held client-side sales and marketing roles for companies including Mars, GKN and Bank of Scotland. Being able to combine traditional marketing disciplines with new online and social media skills, client side and agency experience, gives Alison a wealth of experience that she uses to benefit the agency’s clients. 


A one-stop shop for all your marketing needs

For the first six years Starfish was based just outside Wolverhampton, moving to central Shrewsbury in 2007 and buying our own premises in 2010. Here we have created a media ‘hub’ that has all the skills a client may require, all under one roof.

We’re not interested in entering awards and seeing our name in lights. Our reward is when we see campaigns we have designed working and helping our clients businesses grow.

As a team you will find us pragmatic, easy to work with and with an attention to detail that is second-to-none.
