This summer’s installation of The Digital Pond attracted our biggest crowd yet. Close to 200 user experience designers, web developers, product managers, marketers and other tech industry professionals packed the Clerkenwell Centre near Old Street. Speakers Jeremy Keith and Sally Jenkinson rewarded the audience with their expert insights on the responsive web.
We’re excited to reveal that Cyber-Duck is a finalist for two DADI Awards this year! We’re up for the Digital Team of the Year and Best Financial Services Website with our work for dlc.

If you are a business that holds online information about individuals, then be prepared to potentially receive notifications from Google at any moment. Why? Well, an individual may be exercising their ‘Right to be forgotten’ for the first time, which has resulted into the removal of certain links to your website on Google’s search engine results pages (SERPs).

Marketing Week Live is the UK’s largest marketing event, hosted annually by the team behind Marketing Week magazine. Thousands from around the world flocked to the bustling Olympia Grand for this year’s packed two-day schedule of talks and workshops. Cyber-Duck was there to teach the crowds how a cutting-edge website designed around visitors’ needs can increase conversions and revenue.
On the Edge is a series of annual digital marketing conferences hosted all around the UK. An eager crowd gathered in Birmingham last week for insights about industry leaders’ areas of expertise. Our Production Director Matt Gibson was there to enlighten the audience on why the responsive web is important, how Cyber-Duck approaches it, and what’s in store for the future of design.
In early June, three ducks (including me!) travelled to Amsterdam for a day filled with advanced CSS goodness. CSS Day is an intensive one-day-only conference for web developers, running for the second year.

This was one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended, and I’ve recapped the highlights of the day here.
At Cyber-Duck, we pride ourselves on producing award-winning, responsive web solutions for our fantastic clients.

The Sparks team were joined by leading suppliers and wholesalers in the electrical industry for the prestigious award ceremony, which took place at the Guoman Tower Hotel in London.
