2018 was an exceptional year in the life of Illustrate Digital, so it’s great to start 2019 with a place as finalists for this year’s Cardiff Life Awards! The announcement on 5th February listed us against eleven other brilliant companies and brands in Cardiff, in the ‘Business Services’ category.

Business Services is a category that we entered intentionally, especially since the last two winners of this award are now our clients. ☺️ More than this, the category shows that we offer more than just design or development, the team at Illustrate Digital are here to help businesses reach their potential, to help them grow and to navigate their way to success on the web.

Over the last 12 months some key brands, both local and national, have sought out the expertise of our team here when it comes to drawing the best out of the WordPress platform. Some of these local brands include National Theatre Wales, Hodge Bank and DevOpsGroup, just to name a few. Our involvement hasn’t just been to produce design or code, but also to consult on the best use cases and approach to projects and business operations, using the WordPress and WooCommerce platforms.

It’s not all about clients though. 2018 was a significant year for team growth, a change of internal culture and building a digital agency that looks after its staff in a way that breaks expectations. As a result of the hard work our team have put in together, collaborating on the best approach to a great working atmosphere, we’ve achieved a great balance of loving our work, getting home at night for our families and having a tonne of fun along the journey.

Having put so much effort in to giving both our clients and our team the very best experience of working with a digital agency, we’re proud to have been given the title of finalists in these awards.

What happens next then?

There are two events to attend as finalists, the first is on the 26th February, a finalists’ and sponsors’ reception at Park Plaza. The second is on 21st March, the Cardiff Life Awards event itself,  held at City Hall.

We can’t wait!

And remember, it’s not all about winning, it’s about enjoying the wine on the night too. 😉
