Having originally worked in London for many large corporations, founder Andrew Taylor, decided to set up shop in the beautiful coastal town of Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. Being able to swap the smell of the tube for sea air and fish and chips, certainly helps to keep the creative ideas flowing.

I'm very pleased

  • John Longbottom
    We launched two weeks ago and we just passed a colossal 2million UK page views (1371% increase from the same period before launch). World wide we've just hit 4.5million page views - in the whole of last year, only had 10million so staggeringly we've done almost 6 months of traffic in two weeks. Some massive numbers there and they just keep growing – I'm very pleased.
