Akira Studio is 10: British by birth, international by experience, 100% Canadian at heart
When Tony Scott moved his website design business from the UK to Ontario, his dream was for a better quality of life creating websites that looked great and did the business for his clients.
Ten years on, Akira Studio is a genuine Canadian success story, with over 300 websites created for clients in Canada, the US and the UK. Now based in a new design studio in central London, Akira Studio have become the web designers of choice for a wide variety of Ontario-based businesses and organizations, including: Ontario By Bike, Advanced Medical Group, Johnstone Homes, Southwest Fire Academy, The Waterfront Regeneration Trust, ERTHCorp, Tillsonburg and Haldimand County Hydro, and the Town of Ingersoll.
For a business that started on a kitchen table in Portsmouth UK and moved 5,844kms across the Atlantic to an Ingersoll basement, that’s a major achievement. Akira Studio now has two talented website designers in London ON, a SEO expert and copywriter and specialist WordPress designer in the UK, and a highly skilled coder in Lithuania. On average, the company creates a new website every 12 days!
Akira Studio’s founder and president Tony Scott believes his success is in no small way due to the exceptional welcome he found in Canada.
“Moving here quite literally turned my life around. I came to follow a dream, to enjoy life more and to develop my business. Everyone I met here genuinely wanted to help me, and pointed me towards opportunities I’d never have found on my own. Akira’s success is very much shared with my local business community, and the Canadian love of enterprise. I am very proud to now be a naturalized Canadian citizen, and for Akira Studio to be a Canadian company that works right across North America and Europe.”
Keen to give all local businesses an online presence to be proud of, Akira Studio work with many small business owners in Oxford County, including Clean One cleaning services, limo hire company LA Park, one-man maintenance service Gotta Guy and inspirational speaker Stuart Knight. It’s a chance for the web design studio to give something back, says Scott:
“Many small businesses know they need a website that works on mobile devices, but are afraid it’s just beyond their budget or ability. Akira Studio make the whole process painless and cost-effective by designing websites that work beautifully on any mobile device, and hosting them here in their country of origin.”
