From a small bedroom in Manchester, two brothers set out with the mission of becoming global leaders in digital. 8 years, 500+ clients, 80+ staff and 4 countries down the line, we’re closer to this dream than ever before.
Take a look at our journey from the UK to Australia and beyond!

After exponential growth in our first year of trading, Digital Next closed out 2010 with some of the UK’s largest companies enlisted in our services. Legal, Retail, Travel, Sport… You name it!
Following a stellar start-up year, Digital Next soon hit £1 million revenue in 2011. A milestone which came complete alongside the realisation of how valuable our services were to our clients. There isn’t a greater feeling than knowing you’re doing good for others.
After directors, Justin and Mark Blackhurst, featured in The Times – “Why keeping it in the family pays dividends” – Digital Next gained national exposure that would solidify our UK’s presence. Time to explore elsewhere…
After 4 successful years in the UK, our growth inevitably led us abroad and we have since firmly stationed ourselves within 4 countries, employing over 100 staff worldwide. Most notably, our launch in Melbourne, Australia which has grown from strength to strength.
Leveraging the UK’s technology nouse and exploiting an untapped Australian market in 2014, our Melbourne branch hit the ground running landing powerhouse brands such as Sportsbet and Servcorp in our second year of trading.
In 2015, we found ourselves partnering up with mobile network giant, EE, on their latest advertising campaign publicising the launch of their new ‘Business Connect’ tariff. This campaign was a roaring success and one which will remain a prevalent association with our brand.
Following a fruitful partnership with Online Group in Sweden, where Digital Next demonstrated continued growth, our business became an attractive investment for one very influential Tech entrepreneur and now major share-holder.

After 3 years in Melbourne, a small digital army was forming. Most notably the acquisition of ex-Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Ford Australia, Bruce McDonald (far right), to shore up the ranks as our strategy and client partnership advisor.
After being recognised as a Top 100 Fastest Growing Technology Company, we developed a premium multi-channel service offering geared towards making our team an extension of our client’s teams and on course to break the £4million annual turnover barrier this year.
