evolution

2006 Formation Founded
The business was founded by Martin Gordon and David Dunlop
2009 Began full trading
The company was initially based at Warwick District Council’s Enterprise Hub in Leamington. Established as a graphic design agency, soon realising clients wished to have a supported online presence, we commenced as any other agency does by completing the imagery and designs then outsourcing the coding and development, this caused great problems, due to the lack of control and the poor standard of development.
2010 Moved to Coten End
The business soon out grew the offices in Warwick’s Enterprise Hub and relocated to Coten End, Warwick, where its first members of staff were employed and from then on, all work undertaken was created in house.
2011 Moved to Smith Street
In 2011 the company relocated again to Smith Street, Warwick, having gone from strength to strength.
2013 Continued growth
Having moved three times in the last three years, it was clear we were quickly growing in numbers as well as expertise and weren’t planning on stopping anytime soon. 2013 saw us create an abundance of responsive websites for happy clients, produce numerous pieces of bespoke artwork to support local companies and work on a 300-page printed project!
2015 Martin wins business person of the year
With the team expanding quickly and business continuously increasing, we were over the moon when our fearless leader won the award of Best Business Person at the Touch FM – Pride of Warwick District awards, rewarding his tireless efforts to expand services and grow the business.
2017 Moved to St Georges House, Cape Road
With our previous premises bursting at the seams, we decided to move to a much larger premise to house our current team and accommodate further growth. A modern open plan studio featuring glass meeting rooms and a newly developed UX Factory, we’re certainly proud of our new home.
