Life at FDM
Lee Brady, Managing Director, once told us “When companies put their trust in us to manage their online marketing it feels great, when they thank us for doing a great job, that feels fantastic!”. With admiration for Lee’s hard work we follow everything he says without a doubt.
On the other hand, we also pray for exactly what Adam Blakey, Technical Director, said… “‘Be Strong’ … I whispered to my Wi-Fi signal…” because where would the internet be without it!
“Be Strong … I whispered to my Wi-Fi signal..”

First Digital Media as a whole is innovative, fast-paced and an entertaining environment to work in. With canal views in the centre of the historic Lancaster City, we are at one with the digital world without becoming too square-eyed.
First Digital Media's Directors
First Digital Media
As a managing director, Lee has more than 17 years of experience creating brand awareness and working with teams of account managers promoting businesses like yours. With a strong work ethic and passion for developing a range of marketing products, First Digital Media was born.
Like many success stories, Lee started from the bottom and worked his way up, with sheer hard work and determination he gained clients such as Vodafone, BskyB and Cadbury Schweppes. Having been in the industry for so long (since 1999 when the internet was in its infancy) he has watched the worldwide web and the digital age grow and grow at the same time as keeping up with the changing trends, ever since day one.
After working for a couple or large ISP’s, in 2011 he co-founded Get Your Mobi with Adam Blakey (Technical Director at FDM) with a vision to combat the lack of technology around mobile web browsing. Get your Mobi were way ahead of the field and were one of the first web design companies in the UK to offer mobile specific website designs. However, as times changed he saw that some businesses were not able to keep up and were lacking a solid marketing technique online. Lee has since focused his attention on creating digital and marketing packages while also supporting businesses online, with much more than just responsive designs. With a great understanding of people sharing information instead of just searching, he knows the importance of an online presence across numerous platforms.
Lee is not one to shy away from reaching personal or business goals, he recently beat his own personal course record and holds a handicap of 7 in golf. Known as an avid OCD enthusiast amongst colleagues, everything has to be right, not just for himself but for his clients too. As well as focusing on digital marketing, online strategies and creating brand loyalty in the competitive digital age, client satisfaction is at the top of Lee’s priority list. The team here at First Digital Media enjoy working for Lee, working with Lee and sharing the same passion for success that he does every day.
First Digital Media
Adam Blakey is responsible for the technical side of First Digital Media. With his background in creating customer relationship management software and building his first site at age 16, he always knew that digital marketing would be his forte.
Having founded his first web design company in 2009, Adam has since gone on to develop a number of products including e-commerce sites and web design software. With an understanding through personal experience that business and the internet never sleeps, Adam was able to create the foundations that First Digital Media is essentially built on.
Starting with an NVQ in ICT and completing his degree at night, Adam has worked hard to utilise his technical skills and transfers these into the hard working, creative team at FDM. His own personal vision for First Digital Media is that we are able to cover all areas, platforms and media outlets so that businesses are not limited in maximising brand awareness and exposure online. Adam believes that investing in marketing strategies is essentially reinvesting into your business reputation, which is a vital element in the fast-paced digital age.
Along with natural digital web design skills, Adam can also read the future. In high school, aged 15, he was asked to write down what he would be doing at age 30 and told to open it on his 30th birthday. Our very own Marty McFly predicted that he would have kids and his own digital software company. With Get Your Mobi already established and First Digital Media on the rise, Adam Blakey is a success in his own right but still finds time to workout at the gym on a regular basis.
