Were particularly good at: Magento eCommerce Responsive Design Long-term strategy Sun, 16 Jun 2013 18:09:36 GMT Silver Egg Media SilverEGG Media started life in 2012 as Simply Creative SEO, an offshoot of Simply Creative Software - a web design company. The clients who were employing the services of Simply Creative Software were finding that it was difficult to drive visitors to their websites and so the technical heads put together the SEO wing to help their clients online marketing. In August 2012, the companys first SEO Consultant was hired, closely followed by a Content Writer and the marketing work started in earnest. As the company and the client list continued to grow so did the skillset of the individuals and were more and more asked to take on additional responsibilities. One of the big features of the companys work was to fully integrate into and understand the clients businesses and operations. Leading to an in-depth knowledge of the respective markets, the clients were becoming more inclined to approach Simply Creative SEOabout handling other aspects of their operation. The team were soon operating a wide range of different marketing tasks, both online and offline. It soon became apparent that the SEO suffix was not broad enough a term to encompass all the work that the team were undertaking and sought a re-branding halfway through 2013 and were reborn as SilverEGG Media. The team is now responsible for the entirety of many of their clients marketing strategies and operations and is largely involved in both technical and creative projects for those clients. The greatest testament to the team is the number of projects that we are offered by existing clients, demonstrating that our greatest strength is the work that we produce rather than sales spiel.

The agile yet strong creative service we offer today is the result of years of experience - and a flat, senior structure that ensures you always enjoy the best brains on the job.

Our design work covers the full spectrum: brand identity, campaigns, print and digital. But the tangible work we produce is just the tip of the iceberg. We sensitively interpret each brief, we respond in inventive and strategic ways and we take each project steadily and speedily through to delivery. Our rigorous, robust processes develop, improve and refine the solution along the way. Over 26 years we have seen the design world change from the start of desktop publishing to the rise of digital and plural media channels with the explosion of social media, all providing new ways to communicate verbally and visually to the people who matter to you. Yet the principles of excellent design and project management have remained the same. Holding to those principles gives us a solidity in our approach thats not needlessly swayed by fashion; our style is whatever is the right for the brief. We always start with a blank canvas and end with the most appropriate response. We hope that were personal, imaginative, pragmatic and light-hearted. And we know weve been getting it right for our clients for over 26 years.

Fri, 18 Jun 2010 12:41:29 GMT Ross Woodhall Images I started taking pictures professionally back in 1993 and over the years my work has taken me to some of the worlds finest locations, from snowboarding on the glaciers of Alaska to fly fishing in the heat of Cuba. Skidooing in the Swedish Arctic to Heliskiing in New Zealand. I have worked for many different clients along the way, shooting commercial, advertising, editorial or promotional images. For 8 years I was senior photographer and photo editor at Fall Line Magazine, at the time Europes best ski publication. I was also a contracted photographer with The North Face clothing company for 4 years. But after 10 years of travel and living out of a bag, I decided to put some roots down in the UK, in beautiful Shropshire. I still shoot action and adventure pictures, but my work has now evolved and I now shoot a greater variety of subjects. I take on commissions for advertising, editorial, brochure and catalogue work. I have great relationships with my clients, some well over 10 years old, and I always go the extra mile to make my shoots enjoyable and successful. I finance my own photo shoots producing creative stock images which are distributed through a global network via Getty Images and Cultra Images, I am also on the Getty Images Assignments roster and I am represented in the US by Wonderful Machine.

Hit Search began its life as a Search Engine Marketing specialist. From these humble beginnings, we very quickly found that to add true value to clients, being a Search Specialist was not enough. Being 1st position on a specific keyword means nothing on its own What clients were also interested in was what each collective online marketing channel is generating in terms of revenue, combined with how each individual channel is interacting with each other as a total online marketing mix. Being a Search Specialist was only part of the deal. In response, we recruited and developed EXPERTS in the field of conversion rate optimisation and site wide analytics, and this has enabled us to work VERY closely with our clients, their target audience and the revenue generated. we see ourselves as an extension to our clients marketing teams rather than merely a supplier of a marketing channel Tue, 17 Sep 2013 12:37:39 GMT Dog Digital Success is a journey.
