Co-founders Pete Williams and Steve Temple set up Gibe in early 2009 having worked in various digital agencies for over 10 years.
They first met at UWE back in 1997 and have worked together on and off for about 7 years at various agencies so knew each other’s strengths and weaknesses well. Pete is the account and project management specialist and Steve is the technical genius behind the business and having worked for some of the leading regional and London agencies decided to jump in and set up their own business.
Gibe was up in Bristol as the city has a wealth of digital talent and is well supported with Bristol Media and other industry bodies. It's also nice being able to walk to work along the river rather than being stuck on buses and the tube! Gibe is based in St Nicholas House in the centre of Bristol so we have St Nick's market on our doorstep and a roof garden to soak up the sun in the summer.
Since 2009 the agency has grown rapidly and profitably by only taking on the projects that suit the agency skillset well and working with clients that have similar goals and vision as Gibe. Taking on new team members has allowed Gibe to develop a full range of digital skills, offering more to clients and providing the complete digital marketing package.
Pete and Steve are still very much at the heart of the operation and get involved in every project personally. Growth plans are also a hot topic with expansion into more industry sectors and adding to our expertise a priority. Having fun is still part of the ethos and our monthly social events are becoming legendary for the level of competition and the quality food after.
