So, we have some pretty exciting news. After months of planning, we’re finally able to officially announce the world’s worst kept secret… we have a new home!
The herd has now moved to Platform in Cardiff Bay.
It’s with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Tramshed Tech, which has been our home for over three years.
Tramshed Tech has been and still remains, a great place for any agency to be based. Through our time there, we met some pretty incredible people. We part with fond memories, like that time we played Human Hungry Hungry Hippos…
But as our agency has grown, so have our ambitions and we needed a new home. We didn’t want to simply settle for having more space. We wanted to find somewhere that would support and nurture our culture. After a loooooong search, we found Platform and it was love at first sight!
The grade two listed building was built in December 1844 by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who is considered “one of the most ingenious and prolific figures in engineering history”.
The building was the head office of the Taff Vale Railway until 1862. After this it also housed the consulates of the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal and Brazil, with separate flag poles provided for each nation.
The coal mining industry helped fund the development of Cardiff into the Capital city of Wales. After the Second World War most of the industry closed down and became derelict, which effected buildings such as the station.
For some time the building has laid empty and found its way onto the Victorian Society’s top 10 endangered structures in the UK.
The old train station has recently undergone a major redevelopment by Loft&Co. This beautiful building is now doing justice to its legacy and stands proudly in the heart of Cardiff Bay.
The story of the building had a big influence on us.
We’ve spent the last month or so developing the top floor to suit our needs. The 2300 sq ft will be split into an office, chill-out area, 2 meeting rooms and an area for content production.
We’ll be adding additional photos of our new space as we go, so keep an eye out.
If you find yourself in the bay area and would like to pop in then the door is always open! There’s a cafe and cocktail bar in shipping containers next door incase you needed another excuse to visit!
We’re looking forward to making new memories in our new home.

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?Launch forest cam
