LONDON, 9th May 2017: Experience design specialist, Biglight, added a dozen clients to its roster in the first four months of 2017 as big brands turned to experience optimisation and personalisation as a way to increase revenue. As a result, Biglight has grown its team significantly, and will shortly expand its north London headquarters.
The rapid growth has been driven by demand for Biglight’s unique ability to offer UX, creative, content, optimisation and personalisation skills under one roof - and apply them to significant client challenges, such as improving mobile conversion rates, via dedicated, integrated teams.
