Aberdeen-based creative agency, Form Digital, has announced plans for national expansion into Scotland’s Central Belt, as well as the appointment of a new director.
Founded by managing director Cameron Fraser and digital director Kyle McKenzie in January 2014, Form Digital has welcomed creative director Mark Gordon, bringing the firm’s combined experience to more than 35 years.
With an extensive portfolio of clients including Albyn School, EC-OG, Food Story, Knight Property Group, Metrol, Oilenco and Subsea Supplies, the web and brand design specialist has set its sights on establishing a Glasgow presence to bolster its national client base.
Kyle McKenzie will head up the new Eastvale Place operation, in Glasgow’s West End, to explore new partnerships and take advantage of the city’s thriving creative scene.
In the past three months, Form has secured several large contracts working with companies in the food and drink, oil and gas and commercials sectors. The agency has also diversified into hospitality, medicine and education.
Managing director Cameron Fraser commented: “These new developments are the result of years of hard work that has allowed us to take this next step. With Mark on board, we feel well-placed to take the business to the next level and showcase ourselves against some of the well-established national design agencies, who have inspired us and driven us to get where we are today.
“The Central Belt is extremely competitive, particularly for design work, but we see this as an opportunity to not only compete against some of these businesses, but also to work together and learn from one another.”
Kyle McKenzie added: “We’ve continued to win new business through our proactive and personal approach to design. We’re also very proud of our long-term, ongoing client relationships with the likes of Food Story and Oilenco, who have been with us since the beginning of our company’s journey.
“It’s an exciting time for Form, particularly with the opportunity to concentrate on bigger projects the length and breadth of Scotland.”
In his new role as creative director, Mark Gordon brings with him 12 years of product and 3D design experience following a successful career in the oil and gas industry. Mark’s previously-owned design company, 3eight, has now merged with Form – bringing with it an extensive client portfolio.
This move has further enhanced Form’s service capabilities, with new specialisms including product design and visualisation now available to clients.
Mark said: “Having known Cameron and Kyle for some time and admired their work from afar, I’m thrilled to join the team and look forward to helping the business make further inroads into brand development and design.
“We want to become one of the go-to companies in Scotland for web, branding and product visualisation – one that is accessible to companies of all sizes, whilst always striving to improve the way we do things.”
