AN award-winning website and graphic design agency has upsized to meet its growing ambitions.

GEL Studios has moved from its home at Gemini House, North Swindon, to South Marston to house the team of eight after it started five years ago.

Graeme Leighfield, managing director, said: “Moving to Copse Farm marks the start of an exciting new chapter in our businesses growth. It was pivotal to us when deciding a new location for our creative studio, that it was in a well serviced, easily accessible, and in a secure area of Swindon.

"We are excited as we look onwards to our five-year lease, and to all the creative work we will produce from our new offices.

“Last year was fantastic for us with over 100 individual projects fulfilled for clients large and small up and down the country, along with three new, full-time members of staff who have joined our team - Mike Land has become our artistic director; Elisha Gorton, junior graphics designer and Gennaro Papa, administration assistant.”

The company was also the victim of a break-in last September in which burglars stole around £15k worth of equipment in the old office on the Groundwell Industrial Estate.
