About us header

What we do

IE Digital exists because Charity, Health & Education clients are evermore reliant upon digital platforms to run their businesses and engage with their audiences.

To do that successfully, these not-for-profit clients – who collectively do enormous good in our world – need an agency partner who understands their needs, and can translate that insight into innovative digital experiences for their audiences. Our core belief is that the world’s values-driven organisations deserve access to the best: the best thinkers, the best creatives, the best developers and the best service.

Our clients are often looking for:

Our story

In 2002, our Digital Strategy Director, Oliver Westmancott, established a small digital consultancy.

Soon after, he began working with IE – a well-established brand agency, founded by our MD, Ollie Leggett. It didn’t take long for the two Ollies to realise they had a lot more in common than their name. They shared a passion for helping Charity, Health and Education clients to connect with their audiences – not least because Ollie had been a teacher, and Oliver’s a Director of a UK charity.

So the two companies merged and became the agency we are today: A team of 25 consultants, designers, and developers based in the historic Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. And we still remain true to our original vision – putting technology to good use for values driven, not-for-profit clients.

Whether it’s working with Government Digital Services to develop the future of digital apps in the healthcare market, helping charities to recruit volunteers and donors, or helping universities to attract and engage students – we’re the voice of the end user. It’s our job to turn them into your advocates. That’s why we’re the digital agency for Charity, Health & Education.

Our team

Call us big headed, but we’re pretty confident we’ve got the best people in the industry.

Because IE Digital is only as good as its people. Our studio is full of some of the industry’s best Digital Consultants, UX / UI Designers, Web Developers, and Project Managers – all under one roof.

  • Ollie Leggett
    Managing Director and Brand Consultant

    With a strong desire to work with values-driven organisations to make a difference through digital and brand, Ollie founded IE in 1994 and still leads IE’s more complex brand consultancy projects.

    His notable clients include Vax, World Vision, CSH Surrey, First Community Health, Cranfield University and the Goldman Sachs Foundation.

    Having worked in the creative sector for 25 years, Ollie is a regular speaker at CHASE and AGCAS and is an opinion leader in the area of advancing business practices within the creative industries.  An ardent believer of self-improvement and the power of peer networking, Ollie is a graduate of business courses at Aston Business School, London Business School and Cranfield School of Management and, having been awarded a scholarship to study for an MBA at Aston Business School, graduated in 2018 with Distinction. 

    Ollie is a Queen’s Small Business Charter Mark business school assessor for the Association of Business Schools and a Visiting Industrial Fellow of Aston University. He recently retired his position as trustee of Trident: Reach The People Charity (a £14m+ social investment charity in the Midlands) to become a founding member of Christian Aid’s Salt Business Network.

    Lord Young consulted Ollie whilst gathering thoughts for ‘The Report on Small Firms 2010-2015’ and Lord Heseltine for his report, ‘No Stone Unturned in Pursuit of Growth’. Ollie received an invitation to No. 10 Downing Street and to the Queen’s Garden Party 2015 with Lord Young’s gratitude.

    In his free time, he is an avid runner, cook and figurative sculptor. Having raised thousands of pounds running for Midlands charities, he recently completed his first full marathon and strives for a sub 3.5 hour PB before turning 50.

  • Ed Wilkinson
    Digital Services Director

    Ed holds a MSc in Intelligent Systems Engineering from the University of Birmingham and joined IE as a Web Applications Developer in 2008.

    He naturally outgrew his development role and became our first Digital Consultant. Ed is the best bet for technical consultancy with web builds or integrations. His insight is invaluable on a myriad of projects from e-learning content and videos to user experience design and market research exercises.

    Ed brings his excellent problem solving skills and 10 years of experience working as a developer, consultant and director at IE to bear on each project he leads through the studio.

    When not at work, Ed’s interests include photography, astronomy and most of all – snowboarding.

  • Kate Stone
    Director of Operations and Finance

    Kate's been with IE for over 15 years and always aims to find ways to improve.

    A Chartered Accountant, Kate previously enjoyed working with clients in her role as a Business Services Manager at Grant Thornton.

    Her financial expertise partners brilliantly with her passion for precision project management. Kate is PRINCE2 trained and is a fervent exponent of the ‘Agile’ project management philosophy. Partnered with the Consultant, Kate ensures your project is well resourced and presented.

    Outside of work, she enjoys boot camp sessions in all weathers.

  • David Crichton, Creative Director and Brand Consultant
    David Crichton
    Creative Director and Brand Consultant

    With 17 years of industry experience under his belt, Dave serves as IE’s Creative Director – leading IE’s brand offering, as well as working as a Brand Consultant.

    Beginning his career as a Graphic Designer and making a gentle transition to consultancy, Dave combines his agency experience – which has seen him work with clients across almost every sector – with his love of design, writing and filmmaking.

    Dave’s passionate about making sure that ‘the brand experience’ is as effective online as it is offline – helping to create compelling user experiences, and beautifully crafted digital design work. 

    Dave can often be found knee deep in research for a brand project, locked away in a room writing key messaging, art directing a visual identity project or website storyboard, on location for a campaign video, or bringing clients up to speed and running workshops.

    Dave has spent his life and career obsessed with the power of brand, and helping clients to connect with their audiences by standing out from the crowd, and telling their story to the world.

    Over the last few years, he’s been thoroughly immersed in the worlds of charity, health and education – and before that worked on a wide range of brand and digital projects for a number of blue chip clients, including investment banks and building societies, record labels, TV production companies and retail.

    Dave and his wife are the proud parents of two young daughters, who take up the majority of his time outside of work. However, he tries to find time to indulge his passion for playing piano, and creative writing – he is often to be found working on speculative screenplays, and is a published non-fiction author.

  • James Marsh
    Senior Digital Consultant and Head of Support

    Senior Digital Consultant, James earned a BA in Interior Architecture and an MA in Design Management and brought his varied experience to IE in 2012 to a diverse group of clients.

    For the last fifteen-plus years, James has designed, built and managed mobile platforms, intranets and internet sites for some of the UK’s most well-known FTSE companies.

    When not at work, James drives a VW Camper, bakes bread and volunteers as a Governor at one of Birmingham’s top primary schools.

  • Jodie Pryce
    Digital Consultant

    Jodie began her career as part of Keele University’s Student Support team on all things digital media.

She’s produced websites, apps and ecommerce platforms, working with blue chip clients in fashion, insurance, children's products, education and technology. She has a degree in Business Management and History.

    Jodie was attracted to IE’s values driven ethos and the chance to make a difference for charity, health and education clients. She takes great pride in building strong client relationships, believing in transparency and communication as the keys to success. She’s always striving for excellence and looking for ways to improve.

    Outside work, Jodie loves to travel, having visited New York, Thailand, Barbados, Finland, Egypt,  Malta, Sweden, Spain, France and Belgium to date.

  • Eli Stone

He subsequently earned a degree in Multimedia Technology at Birmingham City University, including programming, animation, photography, film and web design.

    Three years on, she’s now IE’s front end specialist, working closely with our digital designers to ensure designs are technically feasible and meet UX best practice. Always up to date with emerging front-end technologies and frameworks, she creates highly polished user interfaces and interactions.

    Having grown up in France, Joëlle moved to back to the UK to study at Birmingham City University. She loves performing, teaching and composing on the piano, in addition to learning other musical instruments. She also enjoys dancing and will happily challenge anyone to a game of table football.

    Unable to resist the pull of his first love, Nick’s now returned to the web development team at IE, where his years as a consultant and progress towards User Experience Certification from NN/g will provide a fresh perspective and continue to inform his work. He keeps his developer skills sharp, and is an Acquia Certified Developer.

    Nick has a passion for writing and recording music on his computer, loves to get stuck into a good book and keeps a very positive outlook in life. If he’s ever missing, you can probably find him cross-legged on the floor playing with some Lego, reassuring you that one is never too old for it!

Location

IE Digital is proud to be a Birmingham agency, but that doesn’t mean we only work in and around the UK’s second city.

With so many UK charities choosing London as their headquarters, it’s no surprise that over 50% of our clients are based in the capital, and IE consultants are in London at least 2-3 times per week on average.

And with UK universities being an area of specialism, we also work across the whole country, with clients as far north as the University of Aberdeen, to the University of Southampton. We’ve also worked with a number of clients in the Republic of Ireland, including University College Dublin.

Our central location offers the perfect opportunity for us to hop on the motorway or jump on the train regardless of your location. Current travel time by train to London is just over an hour – so we can often be with you faster than London agencies can travel across the city: offering you the convenience of a local agency, without their day rates.
