An ambitious agency that provides clients with ‘digital experiences’ is set for growth after securing significant contracts in the UAE and across the UK.

Stockton-based Ryze, which was established in 2018, is already expanding its office space in Northshore’s Fusion Hive, and plans are in place to double the size of the team by the end of 2020.

The company’s latest contracts come on the back of work for high-profile clients such as real estate developer Kleindienst, whose projects include the iconic World Islands Dubai and The Heart of Europe, multi-academy trust The White Horse Federation, with communications partner Eduprise and the DfE. All made possible by the team’s innovative approach to digital branding.

Rather than focus on a specific discipline, Ryze uses a combination of strategy, brand, user experience, design and development to provide clients with an all-encompassing digital experience that will transform their appeal and catapult them to the next level.

“Our approach means that clients can come to us with a vision and have us not only bring it to life but make it a success,” explains Ryze’s creative director, Matt Cole.

“The potential of any project is what excites us the most, and because we’re involved from initial strategy through to design and implementation, we’re as invested in its success as the client.”

Helping craft these experiences is a team of specialist digital consultants, strategists, UX and visual designers and developers. Each of whom brings their insight and ideas to projects.

“It’s our people that make all the difference,” says Ryze’s founder David Smith.

“Digital experiences are designed to get clients’ customers to connect with their brand emotionally and ultimately act on that feeling, whether that’s through buying a product, investing in a service or getting in touch.

“For that to happen, we work with our client’s to set out their goals and create an objective-led strategy. We study their target audience and understand their decision points to create engaging journeys and valuable interactions. This approach can be successfully applied to brand experience websites or even user-portals and apps.

“What appears to the customer as something engaging to explore and enjoyable to use is the result of a carefully thought out strategy.”

As well as it’s growing portfolio of international clients, Ryze has worked on creating positive digital experiences for brands closer to home, including local success stories Datum360 and J&B Recycling.

CEO of J&B Recycling, Vikki Jackson-Smith, said of their recent work with Ryze: “It’s been an exciting process to see how well our brand and website have evolved in Ryze’s hands.

“They understood precisely where we are taking the business, what was required to get us there, and executed the project with quality delivery that went beyond our expectations.”

Ross Smith, Datum360 chairman, said “Our journey with Ryze, was informed and engaging from start to finish. There was complete transparency at each stage of the process, and the creativity they brought to the project was second to none.”

With significant contracts secured and a busy pipeline of work to take them well into 2020, there’s no sign of growth slowing down for Ryze. But that’s just how they like it.

“We’ve grown rapidly over the last 18 months, but it’s all happened organically by people coming to us for the quality of our work, and style of approach,” added Matt.

“If we’re able to continue growing by producing what we love, we’ll be delighted.”
