A decade in digital as 21 Digital turns 10!
Founded in September 2003, 21 Digital was the brain-child of graphic design graduates, Steven Taylor and Michael Cain. 10 years down the line and this dynamic duo are our very capable Creative and Technical Directors!
Straight out of University, the pair’s initial aim was to use their skills to help businesses make the most of the online boom by creating professional websites that would get companies ahead of their competitors. The duo won support from The Prince’s Trust, and 21 Digital was born.
Since then, online platforms have changed beyond recognition. And, from its roots in graphic and web design, 21 Digital has also expanded, taking on experts in digital marketing, content marketing and business development, including Marketing Director Sam Fletcher.
The dream of creating a flourishing full service digital agency right here in the heart of the North West has been realised. Technical Director, Michael commented:
“When Steven and I discussed starting up a company back in 2003, a lot of people were surprised by our decision – many even felt that we’d fail, due to our inexperience in business.
“But, during the last 10 years, the team at 21 Digital has worked hard to develop skill sets that complement one another. From web-based services such as eCommerce and mobile site development, to digital marketing, social media, branding and content marketing, we’ve got the strengths our clients need.”
Marketing Director, Sam added:
“21 Digital’s offerings are up there, competing with big city agencies but at a more affordable agency rate – which gives SMEs a chance to revolutionise their marketing and PR without breaking the bank.
“The world of digital is still evolving – from intelligent search engines to responsive websites and apps, you’ll find 21 Digital at the heart of the action. We’re constantly on our toes, keeping up with technology and the changing trends in marketing in order to remain current while still looking ahead and preparing for the next big shift.”
While still a very young company, 21 Digital has used the last 10 years to cement its position as a leading digital marketing agency.
Our commitment to delivering exceptional design, content, and marketing strategy to businesses across the region and beyond means that, no matter what the future holds, we’ve got our sights set firmly on our 20th birthday. As Creative Director, Steven, so neatly puts it:
“Throughout all of the highs and lows, we’re better for the experience and it’s been a heck of a ride. Long may it continue!”
