Who we are

Our work

  • Optimising website performance, back and frontend, for clients such as media and entertainment motion capture specialist, Vicon, with conversion rate optimisation testing that has increased audience engagement.
  • Helping niche retailers grow their eCommerce, as with Jacksons Art Supplies, creating new eCommerce capability and implementing design transformation which has seen a significant up-tick in their business
  • Delivering major projects, such as a large-scale migration project for Epson Europe, including 15,000 pages being moved to their new website

Meet – Finally, you will have a formal face to face or virtual meeting with your potential manager, to get to know each other better and dive a little bit deeper into the role and your experience, followed by a straightforward assessment.
