Our Story

Founded in Melbourne, Australia, Digital Roo moved to Brighton, in search of the UK’s best beer & sunny weather.

Digital Roo's Origins

Digital Roo is the brainchild of founder Tom Blake and his parents. When Tom was moving to the UK, his parent drove him to Melbourne's Tullamarine airport. In the car, Tom said "I need to think of a new business name for 'Blakey Designs' (former business name) in the UK... It has to be Aussie & preferably with the word 'Digital'... Thoughts?" His dad said, "Hmm.. Kangaroo... didgeridoo..." Then, out of no-where, Tom's mum was struck by one of the most inspiration moments of her entire life. "I know!" she exclaimed, "How about Digital Roo?"

And that's how Digital Roo was born.

Meet Tom Blake

A typical Aussie, Tom moved to the UK in 2018 after marrying his English wife in Australia in 2017. 

G'day Everyone, Tom here from Digital Roo

Thanks for visiting our website. I've been in the web & digital marketing space for almost 5 years and one thing I've learned is that it's much better if everything get's done together. 

Design, development, SEO, advertising & content strategy are all interconnected so it's much better if you take an all-encompassing approach. That way, nothing get's lost in translation and you re-work something because your agency couldn't cover it all. That's why we've honed our skills in all disciplines so we can deliver the most effective websites and digital marketing strategies possible... The first time.

Why Brighton? Why the UK?

I’d be lying if I said it was because of the weather….

A hub for web & digital marketing

Brighton is a fantastic city for web designers, developers and digital marketers. There's a huge pool of talented people to draw on for projects. With that comes a supportive, educating community that foster innovation and healthy competition that benefits the end client in more ways than one.

It's also right by the sea, has a fantastic nightlife, the people are friendly, the vibe is buzzy, and it's cheaper than London!

As for the UK, Tom originally moved over for his English wife. Now that he's been here for over a year, he's started to enjoy the English way of things, he absolutely loves their humour, the beer is mostly cold and delicious, and he get's unusually excited when it's winter and it snows.

Tom Blake – Founder and managing director of Digital Roo. Tom has a broad knowledge and skill-set in the web and digital marketing space. From design & development, to SEO & PPC, he understand how these disciplines fit together to deliver outstanding results.

You can find Digital Roo in Saltdean, Brighton, Sussex. Fortunately, there’s an ample amount of street parking outside. You can also take the bus straight from Brighton, opposite the aquarium along the sea-front (buses 12, 14 and 27), and you should arrive at the front-door within 20 minutes.

Brighton is full of incredible restaurants, bars and pubs. Closer to the office, you can find the crew’s favourite venue – the White Cliffs cafe, where we regularly meet up with clients for coffee, or catch a late night beer and watch the sunset. 

Visiting Brighton and not sure what to do? Here are a few ideas:

The Famous Pier – Take a stroll along Brighton’s iconic pier. If you’ve got the kids, take them to the theme park and enjoy one of their many rides.

The i-360 – A monstrosity or the next Eiffel Tower? I’ll let you make up your mind on that. Regardless, the view at the top is incredible so it’s worth checking out.

The Lanes – Check out the lanes and try and stop yourself from spending too much money in one of these famous jewellery shops. James Ross Jewellers are the best!

The closet iconic landmark is the Saltdean Lido. Closed for years, it recently re-opened in 2015. 

Full of fun and interesting things to do, you can walk the dog, go to the beach, grab a pint at one of the many pubs, or uncover the secrets at one of Pier Pressure’s many escape rooms.
