WE ARE OPTIX SOLUTIONS
It all started with three university students at the height of the dot com bubble. Almost twenty years on and we have grown to become one of the top digital marketing agencies in the UK and one of largest in the South West. Employing just under 20 people, we work with leading businesses across Devon, the UK and internationally.
James Dawkins and Alastair Banks, our co-founders still work closely in the business. You’ll find them in the office most days, still enjoying and demonstrating a passion for the industry and us. Alastair has become a well-respected speaker across Europe and James has honed his skills in the areas of Usability and Design, a real master of his field.
When we started the company there was no Google, no Ebay. It was Alta Vista and Lycos we turned to. We spent the first few years persuading businesses that the internet wasn’t a fad and they should probably consider building a website (a 24hr shopfront as we called it back then). Growing organically over the years, we took on new services and finely tuned others, always learning from their mistakes. This took us through the birth of ecommerce, web 2.0 and social media, not to mention one of the worst recessions this country has ever seen. This brings us to now where we proudly put digital strategy at the heart of everything it does. One of only a few agencies that do so.
DELIGHT, SUPPORT, ENGAGE
We have always sought to be different, to bend the boundaries and employ the best team we can. That has undoubtedly led to leading companies wanting to work with us and the best people wanting to work for us.
Today we’re proud to work with names we could only have dreamed of in the past. The likes of Exeter University, Devon Partnership NHS Trust, Stags, Crealy, Darts Farm, SETsquared Exeter, Ashfords, Dartmoor Brewery & Thirsty Work all consider Optix their trusted advisors when it comes to everything digital.
