I write We, I mean our marketing agency ‘Ten & Bourne’. We’re still an early stage company, still finding our feet and not trying to run before we can walk, and so it is great to receive recognition for the work we have been doing so far, before what I will call ‘the big push’.

The Kent Digital Awards recently rolled into town, we decided to enter a small selection of work for a number of categories. Amazingly, we were selected as finalists for with clients that we love working with, Trulawn, an artificial grass installation and manufacturer in Sandhurst, Berkshire, and Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s (SCEE) London based R&D Division.

Both of these companies helped push us further as a business, helping us refine what we offer and who we work with.

Unfortunately we weren’t awarded any of the top places for our digital marketing campaign for Trulawn, but took home Bronze and Silver awards for SCEE, in best Blog and best Sports & Entertainment categories respectively. I guess aesthetics is easier to judge than conversion improvement!

You can see a full write up of the KDA 2015 award night on their website. The food was pretty great, and there were plenty of past colleagues to see and new contacts to meet.

I want to thank everyone who was a part of the Ten & Bourne team for each of these clients, we’re proud to have been nominated as finalists and completely surprised to come home with awards.


The evening was supported by a stand up comic / ex tv anti-personality, in Maidstone (nice and local!) we hope they return next year and look forward to entering next year. It’s helping put the local area on the map for digital agencies, Maidstone taking the centre stage as a digital hub in Kent.
