Is it me or has everyone gone early with Christmas this year? From fairy lights twinkling in windows to Christmas work party plans, it feels like everyone is after a bit of Christmas cheer.

Another trophy for the cabinet
We have a lot to be cheerful about here as we head into December, we are over the moon to have just won the award for Best Full-Service eCommerce Agency 2023 at the prestigious Welsh Enterprise Awards 2023.

The Welsh Enterprise Awards are known for spotlighting the brilliance, dedication, and innovation that thrives across Wales. The awards showcase the nation’s greatest talents, and we’re humbled to be recognised among them. Being awarded by SME News is not just about the accolade. It’s a testament to our commitment to excellence, quality of service, innovation, and dedication. We’re proud to be a part of the vibrant Welsh business community, and we’re thrilled to have an award to add to our haul that reflects our ethos.

As Steve our Creative Director says: “I am immensely proud of our team for being recognised as the Best Full-Service eCommerce Agency 2023 in Cardiff. This accolade from the Welsh Enterprise Awards is a testament to the dedication, creativity, and hard work that each member of our team contributes daily. Their relentless pursuit of excellence and innovation in designing and building bespoke e-commerce stores and custom websites has truly set us apart in the industry. I am honoured to lead such a talented group of professionals and excited to see what we will achieve together in the future. Congratulations to the entire Big Eye Deers family on this well-deserved success!”

Expanding the team
Talking of our team, we have a new team member, Emma joined us last month as we boost capacity at Big Eye Deers. Emma leads our communications planning and strategy. We’re also boosting the developer team in early 2024, as we are winning new clients and have a great deal of Magento work to deliver in Q4 and beyond, so the time was right to grow the team.

New client win
Now I mention new clients; we are stoked to have been appointed by Leekes Retail Group earlier in the year, now all our hard work in partnership with their amazing team is being brought to bear on their platform. We can share all we have been doing to help Leekes deliver their online growth ambitions.

The selection of Big Eye Deers as the new eCommerce partner is a strategic move for Leekes. The agency’s expertise aligns seamlessly with Leekes’ unique business profile. Magento, a key platform for, is integral to the brand’s success, and partnering with an agency that understands the intricacies of their business was paramount.
Commenting on the partnership, Rhian Griffiths, Head of eCommerce & Marketing at Leekes, stated: “Established over 125 years ago, Leekes is a name synonymous with Welsh retail, and partnering with a Cardiff-based eCommerce agency is a great solution for us. Working with a team who not only understands our brand but have also shopped in our stores is a huge bonus. We believe that this partnership will help us to continue to grow and improve our new website.”

Leekes has an ongoing commitment to staying ahead in the ever-evolving digital landscape and providing customers with an enhanced and user-friendly online shopping experience and we are elated that they have chosen to work with us to deliver that.

So, all in all we are feeling pretty sparkly in the offices at the moment, new faces, new awards and new client wins. Now where is that eggnog?
