Digital agency August has expanded its development team with the appointment of new PHP developer Kate Lanyon, previously of HR Solutions Consultancy, iedex.

The fast-growing, Melbourne-based agency has boosted its team over the past three months with the hiring of systems administrator, David Gilbert and administrative assistant, Celia Karl in October, following a period of growth and new client wins, including Origin Energy and Aussie Broadband.

The growth has topped off a great 12 months at August, which included being Highly Commended in the 2009 B&T Digital Services Company of the Year Award, receiving ‘Best in Class’ for their own website at the International Media Awards (IMA) in the USA, and receiving a Highly Commended in Anthill Magazine's Cool Company Awards, for their online asset management application, Brand Central, developed for Origin Energy.

“We're delighted with the new additions to the team, and where we’re positioned for the year ahead,” says co-founder Daniel Banik.

“Despite the economic downturn, during the past 12 months we’ve managed to grow our existing client base, whilst gaining new ones, which means we’re well positioned for further growth, as the economy strengthens in 2010. ”

August is an independent creative agency with a digital view. At August, marketing, strategy and online technologies collide, but ideas always reign supreme.

We use new media and online technologies intelligently to engage people, create communities, start conversations, sell stuff and even simplify complex business processes, but they are merely tools of our trade. Ideas are the glue the hold it all together. It's the idea, not the technology that can move people to laughter or tears, and importantly help differentiate Brand X from Brand Y. August people know that it's the thought that counts.

August's approach to digital is that it's not just a footnote or afterthought on a business or marketing plan. It requires a strategic perspective and long-term planning (by professionals that understand the space) to enhance the potential of brands and businesses, now and into the future. Digital is more than just our business, it's our passion, so you won't hear us pushing or promoting a medium or application that we don't use ourselves. Yep, we're users and we're proud!

What started in 2005, with three bold and digitally-minded individuals; Daniel Banik, Zoe Warne and Matt Agar, has bloomed into a fast-growing team of multidisciplinary professionals; spanning marketing, design, development, communications and SEO.

We've helped clients create clever online strategies that are both effective and measurable, and developed digital campaigns and executions that have made the world go 'how did they do that?' Now that's August.
