With a large number of new clients taken on over the past few months, Alienation Digital is expanding by taking on more staff, acquiring office space in the centre of London and renewing its commitment to staying carbon neutral.
Staff numbers are up 25% on this time last year as the company beat the recession and won orders from across the UK. A proven track record in delivering real results for clients – when many are still suffering from the recession – has delivered real results for Alienation.
With record turnover, record profits and well over a dozen new clients just in the past couple of months – such as Scottish Ballet, Adam Smith College, Stirling Management School, Frame Tailor, Strathclyde Fire & Rescue, Forth Valley GIS, Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh and the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations – the business continues to expand by taking on more staff.
Recently, these include; Patric Donnachie who will be assisting the Operations Director in the role of Project Manager. Previously a Business Studies student and Vice President of the Student Association at Glasgow Caledonian and then subsequently as a Support Assistant, Patric will be sharing the day-to-day management of the large number of projects on the go.
The web development team has been strengthened by the addition of three new developers. These include Kuljit Athwal – previously of branding consultancy Marque, Graeme Pratt who joins the team from EasySpace (part of the Iomart group) and Ross Moroney, a new graduate from Glasgow Caledonian.
Alienation Digital’s MD Neil Barr (pictured above) said: “The agency is really buzzing and the enthusiasm and talent of our design & marketing teams has landed us a flood of orders.
“Sales are already four times our target for this quarter, with another two weeks to go and lots of exciting leads in the pipeline. At this rate we are in for a bumper summer and another record year.”
To further Alienation’s expansion in the London and South East area and help service their existing clients south of the border such as Condor Cycles and Business Link, the company has taken on a London office just minutes from King’s Cross.
Further expansion plans, including increasing their Glasgow office are also in the pipeline. The company is currently forecasting a doubling of turnover for 2010/11.
To reduce the environmental impact of the growing business, the company has renewed its commitment to offsetting all carbon emissions for 2010/11. For 2009/10 Alienation offset 25 tonnes of carbon and for 2010/11 they have offset a further 30 tonnes – covering all office, travel, commuting & website hosting emissions.
Offsetting has been carried out by schemes approved under the government's Quality Assurance Scheme for Carbon Offsetting (QAS) – a reforestation project in the Great Rift Valley, Kenya and a tree planting scheme in Scotland, UK.
