Who or what is Digida?
A digital marketing agency from Wales. We’re passionate about great digital marketing – be that for a one man band, small business or large organisation, everyone needs a powerful and persuasive marketing strategy. We’ve worked in digital for over 10 years, and have experience in designing bold and striking websites, running successful and memorable marketing campaigns on social media as well as creating new and modern brands.
What’s in a name?
As a Welsh business, it’s important for us to incorporate the Welsh language in what we do. This was essential when creating a name. The Welsh word for “digital” is “digidol”, which coined “digi”, and “da” in Welsh means good. It might not make a lot of sense in English, but we loved the sound and impact of the word, as well as the way it can work in Welsh or English (“g” is pronounced differently in the two languages).

Emlyn Jones – Technical/Development Director

He’s from Tremadog, in North Wales, and came to Aberystwyth to undertake a degree in Physical Geography and Environmental Monitoring & Analysis.
Emlyn was the lead developer for Thema Cymru, which was launched in 2015. Thema is an open source resource for WordPress users, providing free bilingual templates for download. The project was funded as part of the Welsh Government’s digitisation grant.
Emlyn is also the joint owner of a brewery, Bragdy Pwll – which allows him to pursue his interests in project development, and good ales.
Keri Thomas – Social Media Ninja
Keri is originally from Blaenau Gwent, but moved to Aberystwyth to complete her undergraduate degree and her PhD, both in English Literature. She’s massively into social media & its ability to amplify a message.
She can often be found lurking at conferences, giving papers to other academics who generally find her a bit overenthusiastic.
She’s mostly to be found surfing the web on the Welsh Riviera with her 10 month old daughter strapped to her back. For Digida, she’ll be working on the best way to communicate your brand & developing a unique community around your business.
