Giant Design GIANT Design & Digital Marketing provides a fully integrated range of commercially focussed Design and Marketing as well as Training and Development solutions to a wide range of clients. We invited Craig McQueenie to tell us more. Established in 2003, GIANT is built on a compact company core with low overheads, resulting in the ability to provide a fully comprehensive range of integrated creative solutions that are commercially driven. The firm has developed an extensive network of resources and trusted ‘associates’ who are specialists in their fields. They assist with different aspects of the multi-disciplined projects and training that we deliver. From this model, we are able to provide the very best value to our respective clients and partners. Uniquely, GIANT partner and consult for the main Creative Software companies and lead from the very forefront of the market in terms of software and technology. Not only do the firm train and educate the leading Design Agencies in Ireland but also partner with, and develop solutions for and on their behalf. Craig discusses this client focused approach in more detail and how it shapes every aspect of the firm’s service offering.

“...we have been working on a new export strategy and have also just incorporated a new suite of cutting-edge project management, CRM and design software solutions and are looking forward to opening up new sectors.” “Here at GIANT, our ongoing strategy is to continue to listen to our clients’ needs and continue to provide commercially focused solutions to help develop their business/organisation and to help them to compete and grow in the marketplace. Our continuing partnerships with leading companies such as Adobe and Wacom are also hugely important to us. “To continue to support them over the coming months and years, we have been working on a new export strategy and have also just incorporated a new suite of cutting-edge project management, CRM and design software solutions and are looking forward to opening up new sectors.” This client focus stems from Craig’s own personal experience, which he imbibes into every aspect of GIANT’S service offering. “Understanding the true value of a client and the importance of extending them excellent customer

service has been the most important lesson I have learnt in business. I really value the relationships I have with clients and I am grateful that they allow us to become a valued member of their team and trust us to partner with them and their business.” Overall, GIANT is committed to building trusted relationships and to developing the sectors in which we are involved, both as an education provider and as a commercially focussed solutions provider. Moving forward it has a number of plans in the pipeline to help it achieve this, as Craig concludes. “Looking to the future, we have just opened the first Nettl studio in Northern Ireland, here in Belfast. Nettl provides a complete, end-to-end solution that will help us deliver highly affordable web solutions for our existing and also new clients. The Nettl infrastructure also provides marketing collateral and central leads, through to clever systems to help pitch and streamline web projects. This is exciting for us, as it opens up a sector of the market that we would not normally target, the integration of the Nettl platform however makes it profitable to do so.”
