We cannot contain the excitement anymore and just have to share the exciting news…
Fishtank is moving to a new office very soon!
Worry not though – we’re not leaving Mirfield. We only moving across town, into the 1812 building within Wheatley Park. It’s work in progress at the moment, but expect an invite to the launch party at the beginning of the New Year!
Due to the move, next Friday (27th October) we will have to disconnect our office phone – fear not, you can still email us though! Everything will be back to normal on Monday 30th October, but if you have any questions regarding the office move and the implications on our day to day work please don’t hesitate to reach out.
The 1812 building is a beautiful stone-built former textile mill located in stunning rural area of Mirfield. The nearby canal and the vividly green surroundings are the perfect new setting for Team Fishtank. We’re sure the new setting will boost creativity and productivity even further – and if that fails we’ll just turn to the new office beer fridge.
In the meantime, feel free to browse our social media channels to track our journey!
Happy New Year!
We hope you came back refreshed after the Christmas break, excited for what 2018 has got in store for us – just as much as we are. It’s going to be a BIG year for Fishtank, we can tell you that! But only that at the moment – keep your eyes peeled for updates!
And now, for the results of our Christmas Quiz…
After meticulous analysis of all the answers (for fun purposes) we have chosen the winner at random via a raffle. The person that will be making a move this year by winning the FitBit Alta is David Worthington of 10 associates!
Congratulations Dave! Will be a good excuse to come over for a brew and get them steps up. 🙂
Well done to everyone else who participated in our quiz – we hope you enjoyed it just as much as we liked creating it. As for the answers? Well. Although absolutely no one had Joe down as a straight tea drinker, I’m left wondering – how did everyone know I still believe in Santa?…
We’ve got a special treat for you this year – a gift that ensures you’re always on the move, keeping up to your New Year resolutions. A sleek new FitBit Alta could be yours this January if it turns out you know us well!
We’ve prepared a little Christmas quiz to check how well you know the Fishtank team – click below to take your chance at guessing who’s a Mince Pie Monster and who’s on the naughty list this year…
The competition runs from 20th Dec 2017 to 7th Jan 2018 and we will publish the results on our social media platforms so make sure you follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram!
We are looking for a creative and talented Junior Designer with a position to grow into and make your own. Join our expanding, award-winning creative agency.
The Junior Designer will be responsible for supporting our Senior Designers with designing for our key accounts and working with a wide range of well-known national and global brands. We’re looking for someone who’s enthusiastic and who strives to exceed the expectations of clients and the team.
Hey, I’m Michael and I’ve just joined Fishtank where I’ll be leading their digital/web offering as Senior Frontend Developer. I am looking forward to my future working with the team here and with clients old and new.
Having been working in a large full-service agency in Leeds for the past 3 years I decided to make the move to Fishtank after seeing the new and exciting challenges that Fishtank and the role has to offer.
I began my interest, and later my career, in web development over 11 years ago whilst playing drums in a metal band where (here’s a tell of my age) I found myself re-skinning my band and other bands MySpace accounts. Fortunately, when my teenage dream of becoming the next Metallica didn’t happen, I found my true calling in web development.
After university I was asked to go back to the company I completed a year’s placement at while studying and in the time since, I have honed my craft in modern web development using a popular CMS platform many other development languages.
But all work and no play makes Michael a dull boy and so outside of work I still have an interest in playing music but most of all I am embracing family life having a 5 year old daughter and 7 year old son. Between standing on lego bricks and explaining why you need to eat your broccoli I enjoy watching anything Sci-Fi and going to see live bands.
Fishtank is my new home and I’m looking forward to getting to stuck in so if you need help with an existing website or if you’re interested in starting a new project with us, get in touch…

I’m two and a half months into my role at Fishtank and what a two and a half months it has been – never a dull moment working on various different projects, sometimes all at once, and I have enjoyed every minute!
No two days are the same – one minute we’re on a conference call with our clients in the US discussing up and coming projects and the next we are scoping a new website with a small, local, family run business, all the time working with a very talented bunch here at Fishtank Agency (they paid me to say that!)
I come from a strong agency background with vast experience of working in both B2B and B2C markets, so I bring a wealth of knowledge to my role of Senior Account Manager. My key focus is supporting and working with our clients to help deliver marketing solutions tailored to their objectives and requirements but also supporting Damien with the growth of Fishtank and our own strategy and business objectives.
We really do have wonderful clients, we feel like part of their team, there are no barriers to how we work together which is refreshing to see and our clients respond well to our approach to work.
There are some exciting times ahead for Fishtank and I am thrilled to be part of the team to enjoy them.
