A creative agency based in Marshall Court, Leeds has partnered with Leeds Digital Festival to create a digital presence for the event, as it enters its fourth year.

Tall has invested £15,000 in the project which will see the build of a new website, ahead of the festival’s opening on 23rd April 2019.

Leeds Digital Festival is a two-week-long event, championing the technology sector through meetups, seminars and workshops, hosted by the city’s digital businesses and entrepreneurs.

In 2018, Leeds Digital Festival welcomed 20,000 visitors to 170 events at 68 venues across the city.
Leeds Digital Festival’s new website, built by Tall, will be used as a platform to increase awareness about the event and further cement Leeds as the digital capital of the North.

Showcasing events, sponsorship news and highlights from 2018, the website has been created using a three-step process which includes launching an initial holding page, followed by a promotional website and an events-focused platform to build interest around the event.

Tall will also provide technical support during the event itself and continue to support Leeds Digital Festival with website hosting and certification.

Founded by Guy Utley in 2011, with technical director Behrooz Saeed coming on board in 2017, Tall operates in a diverse range of sectors and has built a solid reputation in Leeds as a provider of stunning digital experiences.
Other high-profile sponsors of Leeds Digital Festival include Crisp Thinking, BJSS, Leeds City Council and the University of Leeds.

Director of Tall, Guy Utley commented:

“Leeds is a technology powerhouse, bursting with talented entrepreneurs and businesses in this sector. Through our partnership with Leeds Digital Festival, we’re hoping to not only showcase our own talents in the digital sector but also support our fellow digital businesses that operate in this region.

“We are proud to play our part in working with this fantastic event and strengthening Leeds’ position as a hub for tech and digital excellence.”

Leeds Digital Festival director, Stuart Clarke added:

“We’re really pleased to be working with Tall on this project and have been impressed by their technical and creative abilities. Building an accessible and secure website was key to our requirements and the team at Tall have delivered on time.
“The website has given us a platform to celebrate Leeds Digital Festival and the brilliant digital culture that we have in Leeds.”
