A digital marketing agency that puts accessibility and inclusivity at the heart of what it does has been chosen by Eaton Smith Solicitors as its Business of the Month for May.

Bnode Ltd, a Huddersfield-based ethical and environmental digital marketing agency, has rapidly gone from concept to creation.

The agency has secured clients locally and from further afield and one of their clients is Beyond Reflections, a charity supporting transgender, non-binary and questioning people, their families and close friends in England & Wales.

The company has invested in R&D to create an accessibility tool that sits on all the websites they build, allowing users to tailor their online web experience to their personal requirements. This helps those with such as visual stress, dyslexia, autism and ADHD. The tool also supports blind people with their online experience.

Chris Naylor, founder of Bnode Ltd, said: “It is an absolute honour to win this award and to be one of the 12 finalists for the 2023 Business of the Year Award.

“Receiving this recognition for focusing on placing strong ethical values at the forefront of a digital marketing agency is truly motivating.

“I really want to make a difference through Bnode in how the world perceives digital accessibility, and that inclusivity should be paramount in today’s online world.

“The digital age has left so many people behind and now is the time to do something to make it right.”

Ben Jackson, a partner at Eaton Smith Solicitors, and member of the judging panel, said: “Bnode Ltd really stood out from the crowd due to the incredible originality of the business model and the services they provide.

“Chris has done a brilliant job in creating a tool that allows other businesses to improve their digital accessibility for all users. We were really excited to present Bnode the award, and we look forward to seeing what Chris has in store for the future.”

Ben Jackson chaired the judging panel and was joined by Philippa Coultish (Coultish Associates) and Alisdair Straughan (Paladin Marketing), Martin Hathaway (Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce) and Annie Bradley (Department of International Trade).
