The 2010’s are coming to an end, and soon we’ll be living in a new iteration of the “roaring ’20s”

Whether the past ten years feel like they’ve flown or crept by for you, at Blue Stag, we’ve experienced a decade’s worth of memories, experiences and lessons. We’ve loved it all!

From a pair to a herd

At the start of the decade Blue Stag consisted of two mates, who had recently graduated from uni, working from a small bedroom. A small team with big ambitions!

Fast forward and we’re now a herd. A bunch of talented creatives, techies and marketeers, working in the centre of Cardiff. 

We’re still just as ambitious but things have changed a lot since those early days!

We’ve collaborated with some pretty incredible people

From one of the largest world-wide humanitarian charities to a territorial police force, we’ve been pretty lucky to have developed and shared creative vision with some pretty incredible organisations from around Europe.

We are truly thankful for the trust that our clients have placed in us and for the relationships we have forged over the years.

We created some good stuff

We’re dedicated our time creating and building brands and digital products with organisations that we believe in and that excite us. We’re proud of the work we have achieved together. Here’s a flavour of some of it…

We’ve picked up a few awards

We work for the client and not for the fame but it’s nice when our collaborations are recognised by higher powers. 

In the last 10 years we’ve been lucky to have picked up some pretty cool awards from Webby, FWA, AWWWARDS, Mashies and the Lovies.

Trying to make a positive difference

It’s important to give back and to think about how, as an agency, we can help to make a positive impact to the world we live in. From supporting local creative events to running fundraisers for important causes, we’ve put some energy into trying to do good.

2018: It Will Glow has its first creative event at Depot, Cardiff.

We’ve taken a few trips away

It’s important to get away from the studio and from our busy lives every now and then. It’s important to our culture as an agency and it helps promote a positive work-life balance. 

Each year we’ve tried to take a trip to somewhere new where we can reflect, learn, get inspired, drink sangria, dance the fandango, and have a good time.

Roll on 2020!

With more fond memories than we can list here, we’re thrilled for the future. We already have one pretty exciting announcement that we’ll be making in the new year and we can’t wait to see what else the future will bring. Bring on the next decade!

    There’s a rustle in the Welsh woods that has been whispered about for generations. They believe it to be Blue. They say it’s not sasquatch, but Stag. All that’s been spotted is the odd antler in the overgrowth or hoofprint on the forest floor.

    We’ve taken matters into our own hands and set up a series of cameras to try and locate Seb the Stag for ourselves. Brave visitor, can you help us in our quest to unravel the mystery and marvel at the myth?
