Back in 2009 The Bedroom Years
Owning his own business was always a dream for our Director, Dan. This dream then became a reality in 2009 when he started his first company BlueCentury Design, and honed his skills by designing small scale websites for local businesses in need – all from his back bedroom.
He developed the business in his spare time, while simultaneously studying at university and working for Eiffel, a European structural steel company, solely running their IT infrastructure.
A few years later, the company evolved and rebranded as Kiko Creative. Over time, Kiko became more than just a local web design company, garnering a reputation for creativity and originality. This helped Dan to land contracts with national brands and companies further afield, one of which was featured on Channel 4’s ‘The Gadget Show’.
Partnering Up Leaving the Day Job
In 2015 Eiffel was bought by the larger company and global leader in steel solutions, William Hare. For a short time, Dan built web apps for them in-house, but soon found that it was time to spread his wings and focus on his passion for web design.
Over Bratwurst at the Christmas markets with his friend and ex-college teacher, they dreamt of owning an agency in town, so the two merged their one-(wo)man agencies and over the years their business grew from strength to strength.
From humble beginnings in Rochdale, growing to Salford’s Media City, the business finally realised the dream taking an office on the prestigious King Street in Central Manchester.
Accompanying homeware and food industry brands on trade missions to Amsterdam and Dublin, followed by speaking gigs in the city, the agency caught the attention of larger corporate businesses. With the inclusion of a new, third partner, they grew into the PPC industry and diversified their services.
Along Came Jimmy Founding Knights
With the birth of his son, Dan was itching to get back to his home town of Atherton and help local SMEs with what he’d learned over the years.
Along with Jim, Knights was born in 2018 – focussing on building software that changed the lives of SME teams and business owners.
Working with micro-businesses right up to global corporations (and everything in between) including clients that have stuck by Dan’s side since the bedroom days, Knights continues to perfect the process and assist businesses with impressive marketing websites, and brilliant apps.
