Three is the Future for E-Scape
Following seventeen years of continued success and in a move that creates solid foundations for the future, Jersey’s leading digital agency, E-scape, is transforming itself into three new companies.
The metamorphosis into three companies will enable each business team to focus more closely on their core areas of expertise and enable them to excel in their delivery of services to clients.
The three new companies being launched today by Escape are:
As the largest specialist digital marketing agency in the Channel Islands, Quadra already supports the success of dozens of companies, by ensuring clients optimise their investment in digital activities. Quadra’s growth and success has been built on a foundation of helping clients deliver effective digital marketing strategies - using tools such as search engine optimisation (SEO), paid media (PPC) , social media, conversion optimisation, user experience (UX) and mobile optimisation.
The 10 strong Quadra team is led by Suzan Gray, a digital marketing expert with a substantial track record of international experience and digital delivery.
Indigo Code Collective – the designers and developers
Indigo Code Collective designs and builds web and mobile enabled software for the enterprise. From the core platform to the end user, Indigo Code Collective is enabling companies to go further faster. Amongst its first projects is a platform designed to give small lotteries a cost-effective online presence.
The six strong Indigo Code Collective will be led by hands-on developer and industry veteran, Jason Stratford.
Sideplay Entertainment – the Instant Win Game developers
For many years the E-scape team has been designing and building online lottery games. Continuing E-scape’s success in online games development and as a result of increased interest in their content from global customers, the eight strong team at SidePlay is planning for rapid growth and increased output of game content for lottery and online gambling operators around the world.
Sideplay Entertainment will be led by director, Lee Bosio.
Steve Hickson, director of E-scape said “Our transformation into three companies is a vital strategic move that we believe will give each of the new E-scape companies, the autonomy to further excel at what they do and deliver the very best for their respective clients. E-scape was founded in 1998 when the Internet was far from ubiquitous and many people still didn’t have an email address. Since then, we have grown steadily and become known as a company that nurtures Jersey’s most talented digital experts. By transforming into three companies, we will be able to make the best use of those talents and continue to be a driving force behind the growth in Jersey’s digital sector. As champions of Jersey’s digital sector, E-scape has been closely involved in moves to grow the industry in Jersey, something which has been recognised by Digital Jersey."
Paul Masterton, Chairman of Digital Jersey said: “E-scape has been at the forefront of Jersey’s digital sector for a number of years and is an excellent example of a vibrant local company that serves international markets as well as the island itself.”
