One of Europe’s leading WordPress agencies based in Cardiff, Illustrate Digital, have some major expansion plans for 2020, including opening their first office outside of Cardiff.
The award-winning agency, who took home a Cardiff Life Award earlier in the year for Best Business Service, are now expanding and opening their second office near Bristol Temple Meads so that they can have easier access to some of their clients based across the country.
Bristol was Illustrate’s first choice for a sister office as it is one of the key drivers of the digital economy, with great universities and thriving tech communities. As a digital business, illustrate have a need to be near close talent in the industry.
Illustrate Digital’s main areas of expertise are strategising, designing, developing and maintaining websites using the WordPress platform. The agency has core customers in the UK, Europe and the USA in Financial Services and Enterprises and operate both B2B and B2C channels.
Scott Jones, Managing Director of Illustrate Digital, says:
“Bristol provides a number of great opportunities for us to hire great team members. In order for our agency to be a success, we need a steady stream of user experience designers and both front-end and back-end/PHP developers.
Those new to the industry can learn from our expertise as one of Europe’s leading WordPress agencies, whist those with existing experience can work on exciting, challenging projects for some of the world’s best brands.”
The team have recently been nominated for ‘Best Enabling Tech Company’ at this year’s FinTech Awards Wales, for some of their work with Hodge Bank and Pure Commercial Finance, with further partnerships and integrations with finance tech providers like PayPal and Codeweavers.
Illustrate Digital’s expansion plans include aims to hire at least six new people by the end of 2020 consisting of developers, a UX Designer and an Account Manager. One of the newest team members is one of the organisers of ‘Bristol WordPress People’, the city’s WordPress Meetup now with over 1,000 members.
Their new Bristol office based in Runway, a popular workplace for scaling companies that offer flexibility, will be open from January 13th. They will also be hiring for their new positions over on their website’s Careers Page.
