Clicky is 8

This time 8 years ago I was sat at my office desk in a tiny back bedroom in a converted coach house in a small countryside village in Cheshire.
I had just taken the plunge to leave my job, and I marched straight to Dixons in order to buy a Mac and start designing a website for my new agency. I had no idea if it would work, but knew I had a chance to create a results driven agency with a creative edge. Oh, and and the biggest ever world-wide recession had just begun… #timing
I had worked in-house and for a couple of agencies and thought I could do things better. I wanted to create an agency that was approachable, knowledgable and creative. I also wanted it to be a great place to work, where everyone felt a part of it. 6 months later I had moved into a business centre in Chester City Centre and had my first employee (Sam).
Fast-forward 8 years, we are a team of 30+, who create beautiful websites and get results for clients I couldn’t have dreamt of at the beginning. We have 78+ active clients, manage over £4 million in digital advertising budget, build £60k+ websites and are still privately owned with no investment. We have also won about 6 different awards for our work and we are an official Google Partner. I can’t wait to see where we are in another 8 years!
Every year we like to do something special to thank everyone for their hard work, present some awards, play some games and generally have some fun. This year the Abode next to Chester Racecourse was the venue, and pink flamingos and gold pineapples was the theme (don’t ask!).
Watch the video above to see how the night unfolded (filmed and edited by our in-house videography team – available for hire!) and check out our photos on Instagram.
