That's tda! as in ta-da! - think jazz hands and confetti cannons. Or, you can refer to us as The Digital Age (but only if you're feeling serious).
We're a digital creative agency based in Edinburgh, Scotland specialising in crafting exceptional digital products, experiences, and campaigns. All delivered by a team of people who genuinely care and take pride in what they do.
Commitment to excellence
Our portfolio is a tapestry of over 100 diverse projects, showcasing our expertise across both the public and private sectors. From revolutionising the digital presence of leading solicitors to redefining luxury for a maverick whisky brand, our footprint in the digital domain is extensive and constantly expanding.
Our commitment to excellence is reflected in accolades such as being named the Most Innovative Digital Marketing Agency in Scotland for 2022 and 2023 by the UK Enterprise Awards. Yet, our true measure of success lies in the satisfaction of our clients. In our latest survey, an impressive 100% reported being very satisfied or extremely satisfied with tda!'s solutions. This unwavering client approval fuels our dedication to consistently exceed expectations in every project.
Our guiding principles
Think, feel, do
Everything we create should make people think, feel or do something as a result. Call it persuasive design.
Content precedes design.
“Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration.” — Jeffrey Zeldman, web designer and entrepreneur. It’s not our quote but we live by it.
We dislike bullshit, intensely.
Anyone who mentions a “brand safari” will be sent on a permanent one, without a knapsack.
We observe, we learn and we improve.
It may be in understanding of your brand, your competitors or your customers. It drives us to be better at what we do.
We create with reason.
Insight drives great thoughts, inspired creative drives great ideas and experiences.
We collaborate with you.
Good ideas can come from anywhere, but no-one knows your business better than you.
We take the time
To ask the right questions because we know the best experiences come from collaboration, not a sales pitch.
You are not a number.
Customer experience is, at its heart, a human experience. We endeavour to humanise experience wherever possible.
We think about the future.
Yours and ours. We never lose sight of the long-game.

Hello, Olá, Hoi!
At tda!, our locations in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Amsterdam, and Madeira are just the beginning of our global outlook. Our team is a vibrant tapestry of talents, drawn from eight different nations including Canada, Northern Ireland, Éire, Scotland, England, France, Poland, and Ukraine. This unique blend of perspectives infuses our work with creativity, surprise, and delight, allowing us to engage with the UK and European markets with genuine insight and innovation.
01 - Every day is a school day
The one thing that stays true about digital is that it always changes.
Firm believers in developing skills and continuous learning, we're constantly seeking opportunities to make new discoveries from the very cutting edge of digital technology. From the latest in social media platforms, to the newest developments in web technology.
02 - Different strokes for different folks
Diversity makes the world go round. We celebrate all of our employees’ differences, creating an inclusive environment where individual needs are met and understood.
We’re proud to have grown a team which is ethnically and culturally diverse, celebrates our LGBTQ+ members, and has 40% female representation in our senior leadership team.
03 - It's good to talk
Agency life is busy. And there’s always a certain level of pressure – it comes with the territory. But we want to ensure our team is equipped to handle this pressure.
With this in mind, we set up an advocate programme for our team. The format is simple but hugely beneficial.
This initiative has encouraged open and authentic conversations about mental health in our workplace, both individually and on a business level.
04 - It’s not our first rodeo
We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve, having honed our skills across the public and private sectors. We’re award-winning innovators, who’ve delivered over 100 projects for brands large and small, from a world-leading solicitors firm to rule-bending luxury whisky.
Never afraid to get our hands dirty, we're just as good in a board room as we are deep in the code of your website, perfecting the visuals on your next newsletter, or expertly fielding your customers' queries on social.
