Tech and UX design consultancy Full Clarity poised for award success

Farnham-based Full Clarity is a finalist in a host of upcoming prestigious national and international technology awards, commended for its innovative and transformative work with organisations such as ITV and Harrods, and for its progressive approach to employee wellbeing.

The specialist UX design, product strategy and technical consultancy has been shortlisted for the Global Business Tech Awards in the ‘Best Small Tech Business of the Year’ category. It is also a two-time finalist in the National Technology Awards, in the Digital Transformation of the Year and Marketing Technology Innovation of the Year categories.

The Global Business Tech Awards winners will be announced on 9 May, and the National Technology Awards will be announced on 23 May at an Awards Gala Dinner in London.

The last 12 months have been a year of high achievement and client project success for Full Clarity. In that time, it concluded a project for ITV that ranks as one of the most ambitious technology projects the broadcaster has ever embarked on.

“The work we’ve produced over the past year has been outstanding and I couldn’t be prouder of the team,” said Ed Kemp, co-founder, Full Clarity. “The ITV project in particular, has been transformative and to see our work recognised at a UK and global level is a testament to its quality. We have ambitious plans for Full Clarity in the future and couldn’t be placed any better for the next phase in our journey.”

Full Clarity also continued its successful partnership with Harrods and delivered innovative projects for smaller customers, most notably for VR scaleup Mesmerise and Ed Tech platform BSquared.

These latest awards follow previous successes in 2023 / 24. Full Clarity has been:

• Recognised as Gold winner in the Best Enterprising Business category at the SME Surrey Business Awards in November 2023
• Shortlisted in the BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards 2023 in the Technology Refresh Project of the Year category
• Named a finalist in the ExchangeWire Awards in the Best New Product or Service: Buy Side category
• Shortlisted in the UK Business Tech Awards in the Transformation Through Technology category

The last year has also seen a renewed commitment to employee wellbeing. Full Clarity has always facilitated remote working, but the pandemic was a rude awakening regarding the impact of working in isolation. Founders Jon Hewines and Ed Kemp designed a two-day event to alleviate the impact of large volumes of screen time on mental health and loneliness.

The first day saw a five-star spa hotel for the team, while the second was a forest day, in which the team decamped to a local forest and participated in whittling, nettle tea, campfires and natural food, connecting with nature and spending time away from screens.

“We grew substantially during the pandemic, but with employees working remotely, we were concerned about isolation and digital burnout,” continued Ed Kemp. “We felt that fully online environments could have a detrimental impact, so we designed an offline experience for the team. We all bonded enormously and increased our sense of a shared company DNA. Employee wellbeing has always been a priority and will continue as we target further growth in 2024 and beyond.”
