Vexed Digital acquires Future Platforms

UK-based digital agency Vexed Digital has acquired mobile specialist Future Platforms. Future Platforms was founded in 2000 by Tom Hume, while Vexed Digital was formed in 2006 by the founders of the Good Technology agency (subsequently renamed ‘GT’ and now VML London).

Over 20 people are currently employed by Brighton-based Future Platforms, which has recently worked for Nokia, Orange, the BBC,, Rank Interactive, the AA and Dennis Publishing.

Tom Hume said “We’ve spent the last 11 years building one of the best mobile app teams in the world, and now’s the time to capitalise on this and take the company to the next level. Having worked with the Vexed team before founding FP, I know they’re the right people to help manage this growth”.

Future Platforms will continue as a separate brand based in Brighton, although staff will share tools and processes with Vexed.
