DA Creative Studio invests in new talent with the launch of DAcademy

Things have been crazy busy at DA in 2021, with a number of new hires, a recent expansion into London and the onboarding of several major clients. We’re committing to developing and nurturing new talent with the launch of DAcademy, a new in-house training and apprenticeship arm which aims to onboard and train 6 young people over it’s first 12 months.

The initial trainees will be based in our Yorkshire studio, where we have recently added a large indoor garden space as a relaxing environment for new recruits to work collaboratively.

Calvin Innes, Creative Director at DA says, “Training and developing young talent has always been at the heart of the agency. We’ve never been interested in looking at degrees and qualification when searching for talented creatives, it’s about passion, drive and imagination. We can teach technical skills, but that natural creativity and inquisitiveness is something you’re born with.”

DAcademy, which will be led by Coby Taylor and Mike Kemp, is expected to create additional opportunities at our new London base within 12 months and we have plans to expand to a third location in the second half of 2022 (Manchester, Liverpool and Edinburgh are currently being discussed as possible locations).
