Creatomatic is 10
We normally treat the 1st of August as our proper birthday as its when we pushed open the doors at our first little office.
However it was ten years ago today that I nipped off during my lunch break at work (sorry DGHP) to officially register SC422843 as a “Private limited Company with Share Capital” at Companies House.
Or “Creatomatic Ltd” as it’s known these days.
It’s been quite a ride.
How it started
At this stage we had no office, no customers, no team and even less cash. Quite the position of strength.
We met up with Chris (one of Kit’s former design students from the nearby College) and talked him into moonlighting along on our first ever paid job. One frantic four-hour website build + content writing + photography shoot for a local self-published author who wrote books about chinchillas later and we were rolling.
We signed the lease on our first proper home a few days later at Number Two Butts Street, Annan and the rest as they say, is history.
How it’s going
Ten years on and team Creatomatic now stands at an organically grown squad of 14 excellent professionals hailing from Galloway and beyond.
We’ve outgrown three offices, bought our current home during the midst of the pandemic and after 14 long months of refurb works we’re open and ready to welcome visitors again.
