Shaving Roger Federer and other eye-catching artwork from a Funding Circle business


This month we travelled to Birmingham to meet Kristian Jeffrey, founder of Street Advertising Services, who shared his business story with us.

Street Advertising Services creates innovative advertising campaigns for brands and agencies, by using vibrant art and technology. Their work is designed to grab people’s attention, and judging by some of the artwork in this video, it’s not hard to see why.

One of the most memorable campaigns they’ve been responsible for was for the ‘World’s Biggest Shave’ for Gillette in 2011; part of which is shown in this short video. Kristian also explains how he set up his business and the sacrifices that were made when doing so.

In June 2014, Kristian took out a £40,00 business loan so they could employ more people and move to new offices. More than 500 people lent to Street Advertising Services through peer-to-peer lender Funding Circle.

If you’re interested in taking out a business loan in the future, you can find out more details here.
