A look back and a big welcome0

Blix has come a long way since it was founded in 2001, evolving into the digitally focused marketing agency it is today. We provide innovative web design and development, digital marketing and exceptional service to an ever-growing international customer base.

As a result the Blix family continues to grow and now consists of four designer/developers, three digital marketers and little ol' me providing the administration support.  With a combined knowledge of 49 years working in the online space we are able to compete in an ever evolving industry where online visibility, digital marketing and a good quality website are all important components of business success.

In early 2012 the decision was taken to leave our lovely converted Barn in St. Andrews and relocate to St. Peter Port to better serve our local clients and to be able to work more effectively with our strategic partners.  In April 2012, Blix HQ relocated to Maison Allaire, a beautiful listed building located within the hustle and bustle of town.

In July 2013 continued growth of our client base locally and in the US necessitated the appointment of someone to focus solely on the administration side of the business…that'll be me!

Having worked in the world of Finance for 20 years I decided to walk away from it to join the lads at Team Blix.  That decision has probably been one of the best decisions I have ever made and I've not looked back since.  When I first joined Blix I had to quickly get used to the transition from working within a large team of mostly females within a large US based Financial Institution to working within a small office of men within an industry that I literally knew nothing about.  

I've learnt a lot since and quickly realised that having locked away my creative talents for 16 years to raise a family, it was now time to dust it down and embrace it once more.  So, whilst my role is predominantly invoicing, accounts and administration, I have also been writing blogs and getting involved with content population and learning a bit about coding and design too - and loving it! You could say that the geek in me is rearing its little head!

I really don't know where the time has gone and find it hard to believe that I've been working here for over a year already.  As exciting times lay ahead for Blix, I can honestly say that I'm proud to be a part of it. 

The latest recruits

Earlier this year, we had to say goodbye to Jamie from our marketing team as he left Blix to start a new life with his girlfriend in London. So the hunt began for another digital marketer that resulted in the appointment of Tom Offen who started in August. 

Tom is now just over a month into his first role within the world of full-time employment having joined us straight from Portsmouth University where he was studying journalism.  Tom brings with him plenty of experience in social media having been a pundit on the local radio, Twitter and Facebook for Guernsey FC and premiership football matches.

Tom hit the ground running and had achieved his Google AdWords qualification within the first few weeks.  He is now working with a number of clients to assist them in engaging their target audiences online.  He is also proving difficult to beat at FIFA 14. 

In the last couple of weeks Team Blix has also welcomed Claire Mockett to the design and development team.  Initially from Bournemouth but having moved to the island several years ago, Claire has over 8 years of digital design experience behind her.  She is already securing her seat within the team by providing original and creative ideas whilst also starting to build her own portfolio of clients. 

In her spare time, Claire likes to play the drums and so I'm sure that future Christmas Parties will see us dancing to the beat of drums whilst Nigel tinkles along on the piano….Could this be the start of the Blix Band?!

To summarise, Team Blix has gone from strength to strength since its humble days in the Barn and now boasts an expanding, experienced and committed team that enjoys good leadership and support from Nigel, Dom and Ben…that and regular supplies of coffee, cake and the Mexican Club sandwich!

Is it the end of the year already?!!0

This year has flown by faster than any I've know before it and as my body slowly recovers from yet another evening of seasonal over-indulgence it occurs to me that Team Blix has done quite a bit this year of which I'm immensely proud.

Although most people wouldn't know it…

You see, as many of those who know us will confirm, we're quite a quiet bunch at Blix HQ and it rarely occurs to us to shout about what we've done or achieved.  

So, as much as it doesn't come naturally I'm going to review 2013 and who knows, I may even be tempted to shout about it too…

Award Winning Web Design0

It's always nice when your work is appreciated. Whether it's a simple "thanks", "you're awesome" or a full-on, feet-off-the-ground bear hug we always like to know that the attention to detail and extra effort we put into our work means as much to our clients as it does to us.

So when we heard that we had won an award for the design of one of our websites it left us with a nice warm feeling inside...
