Magma Digital employee celebrates five-year anniversary

Kerry Sholicar joined Magma Digital Ltd in 2009 as a designer, when the Preston based company had just four employees.

Magma Digital has grown exponentially over the last five years and Kerry has been an integral part of the software development agency’s success.

The University of Central Lancashire graduate has been a loyal member of the team and now occupies the position of Senior Designer. She has taken on the responsibility of supervising a less experienced designer and is also more involved with the ongoing strategic aspects of the business.

Kerry said: “I like being a designer at Magma Digital because I love the array of different projects. I enjoy having a variety of work that consists of our own internal marketing and design work, along with all the bespoke client work that we do, which involves learning about a whole new business and understanding the goals that they wish to achieve.”

Managing director Jeremy Coates said: “We are delighted that Kerry chose to start her career with us and even happier that she has stayed with us this long. Kerry has and continues to bring a huge amount of value to the team, leading on everything from digital to branding and traditional design. Magma Digital are incredibly grateful to Kerry for her on-going hard-work and commitment.”

The highlight of Kerry's career so far has been overseeing the design of the PHPNW conference brand, which was founded by Jeremy. The not-for-profit event is aimed at PHP Developers and is the largest conference of its kind in the UK, outside of London. The Conference has a global reputation, attracting over 400 delegates from across the world and helping fly the flag for the North West. The 7th edition of the Conference is a sold out event and will take place from the 3rd-5th October.
