With Surrey Digital Awards 2018 in full flow and close to sell-out, we caught up with Gabrielle Richardson of SDA17 Gold winner and SDA18 finalist Plug and Play to find out what her business has been up to of late and why she thinks it has the golden touch.
“We are a creative digital agency that designs and builds websites and applications with a focus on the end results they deliver,” said Gabrielle.
“This year, we’re thrilled to be nominated at the Surrey Digital Awards five times for:
Best Online Retailer: BookF1
Best Website: BookF1 and Thakeham
Best Website: Marketing & Creative: UX Design Agency
Best Website: Sports & Entertainment: BookF1
“Working on the new website for BookF1.com was a real pleasure. We focused on improving user experience and driving conversions for a highly competitive, expensive product. We worked closely with the BookF1 team on both the design and development throughout the project.
“Thakeham came to us with an existing website that didn’t reflect their new, matured brand, or offer them the flexibility they needed with updating content and imagery. Working with Thakeham’s in-house marketing team, we developed four highly flexible new websites for each of Thakeham’s brands. The new websites offer users a seamless online journey, matching the experience they have when engaging with Thakeham offline.
“We created a new website for ourselves to run alongside our Plug and Play website, specifically focused on our UX Design offering. With specialist design and content that targets a niche audience looking for UX services, the UX Design Agency site really engages with users and encourages them to get in touch.
“Our ethos is ‘Innovation, Creativity, Change.’ This embodies everything we do, as well as the clients we work with. Our clients are usually in evolving industries and are progressive, innovative people with a drive to succeed. By focusing on creativity together, we create new digital experiences and solutions that deliver innovation and change in their industry.
“We collaborate very closely with all of our clients and believe that it’s the combination of their sector knowledge and our digital experience that means our projects are successful.
“We pride ourselves on an excellent working relationship with clients, cultivating a team spirit, rather than a typical customer/supplier relationship. We’re looking forward to attending the awards night with one of our clients; Thakeham, who are a progressive, rapidly growing house builder nominated in the Best Website category.”
