Clay10 Creative

Local creative design agency drives digital growth throughout the region

Digital design and development agency, Clay10 Creative is opening up opportunities for both local and national businesses by helping them embrace digital communications.

Based in ergo, at Bridgehead business park, Clay10 Creative are immersed in the culture of the Humber region and surrounded by cross-sector innovation. The agency who specialise in digital tools and marketing communications – websites, animations, apps, games, virtual reality and augmented reality – have a passion for showing businesses what opportunities embracing digital technology can open up.

Through joining local networking groups such as Team Humber Marine Alliance and being based at the ergo centre, Clay10 have been able to strengthen their connections with the renewable energy sector. They have also been supported through ICT grants from The Supply Chain Network and also enjoyed working in partnership with Catapult and the Aura Innovation Centre, to promote innovation within digital communications.

The team at Clay10 work locally across all industries and have helped grow businesses and attract new talent to the region through projects such as:

  1. Designing digital models for Siemens Mobility – helping illustrate the scale of their new train manufacturing facility in Goole through animation, videography and Augmented Reality.
  2. Developing apps that educate users, collect data and help simplify reporting and spot trends for AAK.
  3. Producing a range of promotional videos for Ideal Boilers, highlighting the range of products they have on offer.

Director Luc Clayton is proud of their success so far – having initially set up in ergo, Clay10 has been able to move into larger premises within the same building as the number of Clay10 employees has increased. Luc believes that there is a place for digital communications in all industries:

"Whether you’re already living the digital life or trying to avoid it – there is no hiding away from the benefits of a digital approach. The recent COVID-19 pandemic really pushed a lot of companies out of their comfort zone and forced them to embrace digital communications sooner than they would have usually done. We’ve had great support from local networks – from connecting us with people looking for help to letting us know about new developments in the region. We are always keen to explore how digital solutions can help our clients and their customers."

What we did to help

Being based at our ergo business centre, Clay10 were able to strengthen their connections with the renewable energy sector and work in partnership with other ergo tenants including Catapult, the Aura Innovation Centre and Team Humber Marine Alliance (THMA). It also enabled them to maximise the support provided by the Business Investment & Tourism Services team, including 1-2-1 support from our Growth Hub advisors and business centre team. They also receive ongoing support from The Supply Chain Network and have registered on the supplier directory, which enables them to find out about suitable supply chain opportunities.
