Head of UX 

Full service marketing & brand experience agency

Yes, another 'award winning' agency BUT these guys have been around a while and their UX-maturity is strong! Yes, they are fast-paced and many of them have trendy beards but agency stereotypes aside, they also work on in-depth processes, product-focussed projects and huge transformations on behalf of their clients.

The client

Full service creative agency who have been around the blocks and have since built a strong digital team not to mention a presence within the market.

Overall, they’re definitely in the ‘large’ category as far as agency sizes go. But that’s not to say you’d feel like a small cog in a big machine by any means. The size of their clients and projects will mean you play an influential part in what goes out the door.

All dedicated to creating great work across all digital touch points. They also have an onsite Tech team along with another base on the continent for more of the production work.

Over the next year they’re looking to grow their digital team even more. These people will work across all clients and have recently had another huge client win with a renowned energy supplier. Other key clients are within the fast-food, football, flights and confectionery sectors.

They’re also expanding into new remits within voice technology frameworks and apps.
