August update…

Author: Andy Hartwell

It’s been an exciting month at Substrakt so far, so here’s an update:

The 1st bit of big news is Substrakt’s recent acquisition of Bristol based CG Media. This came after working closeley and very successfully on a series of projects with director Chris Garrett. This is a really positive move for Substrakt as CG Media has a wide range of regional and national clients including the English Table Tennis Association, the BBC, CNET and Visit Britain. This acquisition also gives a massive boost to the Substrakt team and enables us to continue expanding our service base as well as targeting new markets from our Bristol office at the Tobacco Factory. Chris and his team are already very knowledgeable about the Bristol market and have a great reputation in the area. We saw that we could achieve a great deal by combining our skills and resources.

We have a number of London based clients, such as Cushman and Wakefield, DTZ, The Social Investment Business and CABE. Over the past few months we have been winning more and more work from London so decided we needed a presence there. We have also been collaborating on projects with web company Spring Digital, who are based in Big Studios, at Smithfields Markets. It seemed like a natural step to establish a satellite office there.

Meanwhile, we have welcomed a new team member to Birmingham HQ, Josh Hart. Josh is pretty famous on the web front in Brum for his awesome work on the All Brum family of websites, including livebrum.co.uk, digitalbrum.co.uk and artbrum.co.uk.

Our website will be amended accordingly with the addition of new team members and new studio locations when we can tear ourselves away from some awesome client projects.

We have also just launched a website for Futurebuilders. It was great to work with Futurebuilders on this project, who have a committed team of web editors who were keen to bring the company up to date with social media and web 2.0.

We are also extremely pleased to learn that we will be continuing to work with Futurebuilders on a new website for The Social Investment Fund, due to launch on the 11th September.
