Their website is the second most visited pet grooming website in the world and the team behind the website has been named as the DNA Digital Team of the Year, sponsored by Deloitte Digital!

The Digital DNA Awards were held as part of the Digital DNA conference, a leading business and technology event held annually in Belfast since 2013. The awards celebrate outstanding work, recognizing those who are pushing the boundaries of technology to make a measurable and significant difference to the world.

The Christies Direct team saw off competition from two leading Belfast Digital Agencies; Fathom and iCan, to be crowned Northern Ireland’s Digital Team of the Year.

The Digital DNA team behind the awards said: “We believe doing things differently merits reward and attention. These awards are about acknowledging the challengers, not the followers. Rules are broken, envelopes are pushed and innovation comes as standard.”
