Following the third annual Surrey Digital Awards on 9 March, we spoke to Gabrielle Richardson, Operations Manager at Plug and Play, who won Gold for ‘Website: Lifestyle & Culture’ for their work for Somlo, as well as silver in ‘Website: Sports & Entertainment’ for The Jockey Club Live.
Could you tell us a little about your organisation?
We are a full service digital agency offering web design and digital marketing services to a wide range of clients. We started out in a spare bedroom in 2006 and now have a team of 15 and offices in Surrey and London. Our clients are a mix of small businesses, startups and large corporates each looking to improve their online presence, which is where we come in.
What made you get involved in the SDAs?
We love working with our clients in Surrey- it’s where we started out and we’ve always had a strong presence in the area. We’re really proud of the work we’ve done recently and jumped at the chance to showcase it.
What does winning gold at the SDAs mean to your organisation?
Being recognised for our hard work with our nomination was really exciting, so winning was just the icing on the cake. Somlo was a real passion project for us so we’re thrilled that it’s been so well received.
Where will you be putting your award?
We’re leaving our office in Godalming to move to a base in Guildford over the next few months, so we are looking forward to our award taking pride of place in our new home!
What was your most memorable moment from the SDA presentation evening?
Sadly we weren’t able to make it to the night itself! We were really disappointed not to be able to pick up our award or meet any of the other nominees on the night, but will definitely be there next year.
What’s the best thing about the Surrey business community?
The variety of different businesses in Surrey is really interesting. We work with clients based in both London and Surrey and our Surrey clients are certainly as much fun as the London ones!
