Jonny Kelly

Creative Director

Two of Northern Ireland’s leading brand and communications agencies have come together to support purposeful and innovative brands with strategic marketing.

Experienced digital agency Origin joins The Foundation to create a new full-service marketing agency, that will continue to trade as The Foundation.

Origin was founded in 2006 by Jonny Kelly & Jerry Staple. Jonny joins the company with his team, and will focus on client relationships and agency growth as part of The Foundation’s leadership team. Jerry will exit the business and move on to pursue other ventures.

The Foundation helps organisations to uncover and articulate their unique value, helping their clients to win in competitive markets. With its heritage as a family business trading since 1929, the company is marrying its longstanding creative brand, campaign and print management experience with Origin’s 18 years in digital.

With strong client relationships across public and private sectors, this union will provide a significant boost both to existing and new clients of the agency. Both companies have also been active in international markets and it is expected that together as The Foundation they will build further on this success in the coming years.
