The firm, which also has an office in Newcastle, has appointed Erin Walden as PR executive and Samuel Elliott as graduate intern, to add to its Darlington team.
The agency has also expanded into a second office in its Darlington headquarters which allows even more space for future growth.
Erin, who graduated from Newcastle University with a master’s degree in International Multimedia Journalism, initially started as an intern but was rewarded with a permanent role for her effort and commitment.
Speaking about her new role, she said: “I love working with Harvey & Hugo, the team are lovely and there is a great sense of spirit in the office.”
Sam joins the team from Teesside University through its funded internship scheme on a 3 month contract. Fresh out of university, with a degree in Multimedia Journalism, he is looking to pursue a career in public relations.
Sam said: “I’m hoping to use this internship as a chance to demonstrate my abilities and hopefully gain employment at the end of it.
“It’s fantastic when businesses like Harvey & Hugo sign up to these schemes and give graduates like myself an opportunity to grasp with both hands.”
Managing director, Charlotte Nichols, said: “We had such a fantastic end to 2013 and wanted to make an impact in the New Year.
“We’ve strengthened our team to deal with an increased demand in our services and this has also led to acquiring further office space to accommodate the new members.”
Looking ahead, Charlotte is confident the business is heading in the right direction, she said: “I am really happy at how quickly things are progressing, we’ve come such a long way in just under five years.
“I would like to thank my team for the hard work they put in and wish the new members a very warm welcome.”
