The team here at Illustrate Digital is delighted to have been highly commended at the sixth annual Cardiff Business Awards. The event took place on Friday November 13th in a virtual ceremony hosted by Jamie Owen.

As a company headquartered in Cardiff, were among 46 companies to be named finalists in this year’s highly anticipated awards, which celebrate the best businesses in Cardiff and the vast potential that exists within the capital city of Wales.

Established in 2013, we’ve grown over the last seven years to one of Cardiff’s leading digital agencies and one of the top 10 agencies in the UK for websites and software engineered using the WordPress platform.

The last twelve months have been both exciting and challenging. It’s a testament to the amazing team, culture and spirit of excellence we’ve built in recent years, as well as the ambitious clients that have put their trust in us to take them to the next level.

Especially this year, amongst the global chaos, it’s great to be recognised and highly commended as one of the top businesses in our city.

Now in their sixth year, the Cardiff Business Awards recognises those companies and individuals who have enjoyed impressive success over the last year and have made an outstanding contribution both to their respective sectors and to the wider Cardiff economy itself.

The main sponsor for the awards is Cardiff Council Cllr Huw Thomas, Leader of Cardiff Council said: “While this year’s awards have taken place in a very difficult environment for business, we have been delighted with the range and quality of the applications. Amongst the winners, there are well established businesses in the city and a new generation of technology companies who will be making their mark in the economy over the years ahead.”

Liz Brookes co-founder of the awards and director of Grapevine Event Management said: “Although we couldn’t get to celebrate in person with everyone I am so pleased we were still able to recognise the amazing depth of talent that Cardiff has. Even in a pandemic we had a record number of entries and it was humbling to hear from so many amazing companies who are achieving great things despite tough times and I congratulate all of them on their achievements.”

The nominated charity partner for the awards was Cancer Research Wales, which is dedicated to developing life-changing treatments, diagnostic techniques, and research for people with cancer.
