We are excited to announce that Elixirr has acquired digital agency den, to launch Elixirr Creative. den will enhance our existing suite of services by adding a team of creative design and digital development talent. Terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
The acquisition is a response to strong demand from our clients for digital and design work. We currently work with the executive teams of some of the world’s most innovative, forward-thinking corporates to help them embrace open innovation, discover the art of the possible, and partner with them to make customer-led change happen inside their organisation, and their industries.
Outstanding design and user experience is at the heart of all successful businesses and we’re excited to be able to offer these services to our clients – it’s a perfect complement to our existing consulting business.
Stephen Newton, Founder and Managing Partner of Elixirr, said
“I am delighted to welcome den to our team. The value they can add to the work we do for our clients is clear, particularly in the innovation space – design thinking and rapid prototyping are the obvious examples. But the opportunities are endless actually, as forward-thinking businesses are increasingly recognising the importance of great design – we’re very ambitious.”
Bill Kingston, co-Founder and Managing Director of den, said
“We’ve been Elixirr’s creative and digital partner since 2011 and our values, the way we work and our people have always aligned perfectly. It’s always been a very valuable partnership that has now evolved naturally into a business venture. We’re excited about the potential of Elixirr Creative and where it will take the breadth of our portfolio and client base – we cannot wait to get stuck in.”
Stephen adds “Elixirr is all about the quality of our people – our talent bar is very high. The combination of our diverse backgrounds and our agility as a firm, gives us our competitive edge. Now that den have joined our team and are working side-by-side with us, we’ve added some extremely talented designers, developers and even more creative thinkers to our team of industry experts, consultants and entrepreneurs. It’s a very exciting time and I’m looking forward to blowing our clients away with what we can do together!”
Both founder-led, Elixirr and den share the same laser focus on exceptional quality delivery and a strong entrepreneurial spirit. It’s this that inspires our point of differentiation in what is a very traditional market, one that is ripe for disruption.
Stephen stated “Our vision is to build the best consulting firm in the world – some might say that’s pretty ambitious, but we don’t think it’s ambitious enough! We want to build the premier brand for business services, redefine what ‘consulting’ means if you like – we are determined to disrupt our own industry. Elixirr Creative is another step towards this and I couldn’t be more delighted to welcome such talent to our team.”
Elixirr Creative offer a wide range of design and digital development services: websites, apps, brand identity, site analysis, UX optimisation, SEO, digital strategy, hosting, photography and video.
