Graeme Leighfield, managing director of the eight-strong company, said: “Moving to Copse Farm marks the start of an exciting new chapter in our businesses growth.

"It was pivotal to us when deciding a new location for our creative studio, that it was in a well serviced, easily accessible, and in a secure area of Swindon.

"Copse Farm in South Marston Park exceeded all of these expectations. We are excited as we look onwards to our five-year lease, and to all the creative work we will produce from our new offices.

“Last year was fantastic for us with over 100 individual projects fulfilled for clients large and small up and down the country, along with three new, full-time members of staff who have joined our team - Mike Land has become our artistic director, Elisha Gorton, junior graphics designer, and Gennaro Papa, administration assistant.”

GEL Studios has gone from strength to strength since it began five years ago, with clients now ranging from Comedy Central to small, local, independent businesses such as Eggelicious.

In 2017, the team won the Web Development Project of the Year for their work for outdoor cinema company The Lost Cinema at the national Digital Entrepreneur Awards.

GEL Studios created the logo and brand, as well as a website, and were praised for their “pivotal” role in The Lost Cinema’s success.

In 2018, they were finalists in the eCommerce Developer of the Year category.
