Our work with Peel Foods consisted largely of development work and technical support. They approached us with the finalised website designs but were in need of a backend that reflected their product’s ease of access, speed of service, and functional reliability.

Soundabout are a small independent charity that are using music to ‘unlock the potential’ of children with severe learning difficulties. They are our inaugural Charity of The Year winners and a great cause.

After deliberation, Soundabout decided to deploy our efforts to the redesigning of their company logo. What proceeded was a design that reflected their affable, approachable nature but also communicated Soundabout’s critical musical component better than their previous.

We continue to perform paid media management on their accounts whilst helping out elsewhere whenever possible.

Webgains are a hi-performance affiliate marketing platform with the mission of connecting advertisers with publishers, at pace, through cutting edge technology.

Our relationship with Webgains began towards the beginning of 2017 when we were approached to develop a mobile application to accompany their new website. They had the designs and the backend for the application but were in need of a technical partner to work with over the course of the year, meeting strict deadlines and budgets but also showing flexibility when creating a product road map.

The apps were built natively using IOS and Android tool kits, with the final product being a comprehensive and substantive marketing tool.
