Founder and creative director Darren Clare, said: “The feedback we received from Syntec was great.

“They were very impressed with our creativity and the fact we’d managed to produce so much in such a short time, and who doesn’t like hearing things like ‘you were head and shoulders above the other agencies’. It’s an exciting project. The CardEasy solution has won numerous awards and has a huge global reputation.”

Danny Cresswell, chief sales and marketing officer, added: “Portfolio really impressed us with their vision and understanding of what was required. We’re excited to launch the rebrand and new website as well as establishing what we hope will be a long-term partnership."
