Corsham company experiences a BBC win
Aer Studios has joined the BBC digital design roster after a pitch battle with international user experience (UX) and design agencies.
The only agency in the South West region to be appointed, the engagement spans four years. Aer Studios will work in close collaboration with the BBC User Experience and Design (BBC UX&D) team across its entire digital estate, with a focus on young audiences and learning.
Aer Studios will be joined by six other industry leading agencies and consultancies, including Moving Brands, Next15 and Epam Continuum.
Aer Studios has previously worked with the BBC, but they describe this contract as: ‘a significant expansion of our remit.’
The company also partnered with Portishead-based agency, Wreel, to offer end-to-end creative, design and tech services. Wreel will be supporting Aer Studios with creative and brand design capabilities.
Tom Harber, MD at Aer Studios, said: “We’re proud to have been working with the BBC for over 12 years now across a range of creative and technology engagements, designing and developing games, apps and digital experiences.
“Our appointment to the Digital Design Roster marks a significant step change in our partnership allowing us to considerably broaden our strategic and creative contribution.
It has also been great to engage Wreel and together showcase the creative and tech firepower in the South West.”
Other Aer Studios clients include Warner Media, Cartoon Network, Dogs Trust, Diabetes UK, CNN, History Royal Palaces and gov.uk.
