We are a dynamic bilingual digital creative agency nestled in the heart of North Wales. Our journey began in 2011 when Derick Gwyn Murdoch founded Galactig in Cardiff, driven by a passion for design and user experience expertise. Over the years, we’ve evolved into a recognised industry brand, dedicated to crafting high-quality digital experiences in both English and Welsh.

In 2015, Galactig joined forces with the Rondo Media Group, marking a significant milestone in our growth. This strategic partnership not only fueled our success but also provided an avenue for expansion by tapping into the resources of one of Wales’ largest independent media companies. With an impressive annual turnover exceeding £14m, Rondo boasts a team of over 70 full-time staff and 120 freelance and part-time members. The recent £1m investment in post-production and studio facilities in Caernarfon underscores Rondo’s commitment to excellence.

At Galactig, we pride ourselves on our diverse range of services, including creative consultancy, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mobile applications, web design, user experience, eLearning, video production, and motion graphics. Our expertise extends beyond conventional boundaries, as evidenced by our projects in the Welsh language, leveraging the richness of our cultural heritage.

We love to experiment with new ways of telling stories – such as groundbreaking mixed reality filming for Space Scavengers, a captivating kids’ gameshow pilot. This project showcases our commitment to pushing the boundaries of technology and entertainment, seamlessly blending the real and virtual worlds through extended reality (XR) experiences.

In addition to our innovative work in entertainment, Galactig plays a crucial role in shaping the future of healthcare and education. Our endeavors in these sectors aim to enhance experiences, improve learning outcomes, and contribute meaningfully to the well-being of individuals and communities.

As we continue to evolve, Galactig remains at the forefront of digital creativity, driven by a commitment to excellence, cultural inclusivity, and pushing the boundaries of technology. Join us on this exciting journey as we shape the digital landscape with creativity, innovation, and a touch of Welsh flair.
