Glasgow-based Alienation Digital, the web design and digital marketing specialist, is celebrating another year of tremendous growth by committing the entire agency’s services free for a day to a good cause.
The agency’s 15 strong staff will work with Woodlands Community Development Trust to deliver a new logo, a content managed website, training, some digital marketing work and even get their hands dirty by helping out in the local community gardens.
WCDT aims to encourage the redevelopment and revitalisation of Woodlands and neighbouring areas in Glasgow for the benefit of local residents, businesses and organisations.
The Woodlands Community Garden and Energy Awareness Hub on West Princes Street is a project to transform a derelict gap site into a community garden, with funding from the Climate Challenge Fund.
2009/10 was Alienation’s most successful year ever, with a long list of prestigious new clients such as Condor Cycles, Scottoiler, Strathclyde Fire & Rescue, NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde, The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, and Pitlochry Festival Theatre.
Turnover grew by 240% and profit was up 300%. With the move to larger premises in Somerset Place in February of this year and the opening of a London office, the company continued to grow by taking on more staff, including support staff and project managers.
Neil Barr, Alienation MD, said: “This year has just been incredible. The team has worked really hard to ensure our continued success in what has been a tough time for some agencies.
“We are very much committed to using our success to help others out and this year we are very excited to help a local cause that is close to our heart and reinforces our green credentials.”
Mark Hesling, of WCDT said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Alienation Digital, who we believe will provide a quality website with a high standard of design, function and accessibility and look forward to working with a company that places great emphasis on the environmental and ethical aspects of their business.”
