Digital and design agency Lewis has reported record turnover for the 2014-15 financial year, up by 13.2 per cent to £1.6 million.

The Edinburgh firm said it is entering “a new chapter” in its four-decade history, having moved to new premises, creating three jobs and with plans to expand further over the next year.

It also noted clients it added over the last year, including National Museums Scotland and Anderson Strathern Asset Management.

Managing director David Lewis said: “They say that life begins at 40 and I’m pleased to report that the past year has been our best yet. Our new offices will give us the freedom to grow and we are going to be bigger, brighter and bolder than ever.”

Lewis, founded in 1974 in the Borders, now employs over 25 people across design, technical and client services. The agency recently relocated from its old offices at Quayside Mills in Leith to a new base at nearby Rennie’s Isle.

“Increasingly we are working with brands based in London and the south-east so we have created space in our new premises where clients will be able to work when they are visiting Edinburgh,” Lewis said.

“Scottish agencies are bursting with talent and creativity and Edinburgh is becoming well known as a hub for creative technology so we want to make it as convenient and appealing as possible for companies to choose us.”

He added: “We have been in Leith for over 15 years so I’m delighted that we have been able to find such a fantastic space within walking distance of our previous offices.”
