Just over 12 months ago, we relaunched our design studio as Factored to prepare the studio for growth and to signal our focus on the disciplines of brand and digital.

We’ve packed a lot into the past year — moving to larger office space, visiting New York to attend Generate Conference, being featured in Net Mag and being shortlisted in multiple categories at the Downtown in Business Lancashire Awards and 2016 LBV Young ‘Uns Awards.

We also welcomed new clients, completing a brand refresh and website design for Pure Leisure Group and their 12 UK holiday parks, relaunching The Chamber North Lancashire to boost membership, and working on a charity campaign for FTSE 250 listed NewRiver REIT.

On top of this, we welcomed Daniel Wallace as a company director and shareholder to drive forward creative output.

Our success was reflected financially with an increase in turnover of 30% and increase in Net Profit of 28%. The financial success has continued into 2017, as we have achieved the entire turnover of 2015/2016 in just 6 months of the 2016/2017 financial year.

2017 promises to be just as busy, as we welcome two new team members and create new partnerships with clients to improve their businesses.

A huge thanks to all those who continue to support us — clients, suppliers, friends and family. Here’s to the next 12 months.
