Website design for one of Europe’s leading model agencies

Client PHA Model and Casting Agency
Requirement Website Design

PHA Model Management was founded in Manchester in 1969 and is one of the longest established model and actor agencies in Europe.


Originally the Pamela Holt Agency and representing only models, it has grown and evolved to become the ‘one stop shop’ it is today. PHA now represent models, actors (RARE Talent and ICON Actors), supporting artists and creatives (makeup artists, fashion stylists, food stylists and room stylists).


Recommended to Sunny Thinking by one of our other Altrincham based clients, PHA approached Sunny Thinking to design a new website as their old one had become outdated and wasn't performing as well as some of their rivals. Following an audit of their existing site and review of their competitors we scoped out the new site.


We designed and built the PHA site with Craft CMS, our preferred content management system for creating custom digital experiences.

We refreshed the design of the site with a contemporary look and enhanced user experience. Key features include improved model searching, portfolio viewing and the ability to create shortlists and lightboxes of selected artists as well as improved functionality across the site and model application processes. The site is fully responsive and has improved performance levels across mobiles, desktops and tablets.
