The BusinessEdit

Brand creation, management and protection are vital in today’s world. However, with the vast array of marketing channels available this is becoming increasingly difficult to control - and expensive!

As businesses grow, brand evolves and new creative ideas are injected, this becomes an even bigger problem. Businesses spend millions of pounds every year on outsourcing fees to creative agencies for their brand marketing material. These processes are convoluted with significant turnaround times & fees attached.

BaseBrand provides businesses with an in-house method of creating content for digital, social, HTML, print and video. Built-in workflows, brand protection and real-time collaboration ensure that brands are never diluted globally.

As well as existing customers, BaseBrand will target prospective clients currently using the “business to agency” relationship, by focusing on licensing its software to blue-chip clients to ensure quicker market penetration.

Technical DirectorEdit

Seumus Blair

Seumus’s inquisitive nature led him to programming around 15 years ago; tackling self induced projects ranging from reverse engineering C# games, to early web based scripting. Those early self-taught years have been hugely beneficial in setting his ever-growing, diverse, knowledge base in multiple languages and frameworks - including: Java, React, PHP, Ruby & JavaScript. While studying Mobile Application Development (MSc), he realised the full potential in JavaScript - it was this realisation that propelled him into honing his knowledge in this language in particular. Seumus has a unique approach to any problem, deeming nothing impossible with the right level of determination.
