In a year defined by economical difficulties, Illustrate Digital has bucked the trend with rapid growth and revenue increases. The WordPress agency has launched several key new websites, hired half a dozen people in 2020, and improved revenue by 70% year-on-year comparing 2019 to 2020.
Illustrate Digital completed twelve new site launches in 2020, including sites for Hodge Bank, Pure Property Finance, Bristol Waste Company, Technology Connected and Countingup Bank during 2020, as well as maintaining and levelling-up their current client websites.
After employing six team members last year, the agency is looking to hire for a further seven roles in Q1/Q2 of 2021. This will mean an impressive 40% growth for the company in the past two years.
The new roles include:
- Two Senior UX Designers
- WordPress Support Engineer
- Quality Assurance Engineer
- PHP Engineer
- HubSpot Specialist
New client wins to kick off 2021 already involve a number of technology brands, medical device manufacturers, a global CRM provider and some innovative software projects encompassing data, identity and online comparison tools.
Scott Jones, Managing Director of Illustrate Digital, says:
“In line with some amazing new projects we’re taking on, we’re looking for another seven members to join the Illustrate Digital team with a mixture of skills. Excellence is key for us, so we’re looking for highly motivated individuals that are willing to bring and expand their knowledge and skills, while fitting in well with the Illustrate Digital culture.”
“As a business we are grateful to have experienced success in what has been a challenging year not just in the UK but across the world. We are really proud to have achieved our best-ever year financially, but also in the culture and engagement we’ve created when all working from home for most of 2020.”
Scott has recently been listed as one of Wales Online and Business Live’s ‘35 Under 35’, and Illustrate Digital also received a Highly Commended Award from this year’s Cardiff Business Awards.
