Same aspirations. Collectively better. AYKO is a collaboration of two specialist development agencies, Two Jay and Vortex and digital marketing agency, Eralis. Together, as a full-service digital agency, we craft and grow market-leading eCommerce experiences with ingenuity, innovation and imagination.

Since establishing Two Jay in 2010, Two Jay Founder and Managing Director, Jamie Jackson has continued to play a very active role within the business, overseeing the team while offering his unwavering ambition to evolve Two Jay to something greater. Having similar aspirations, James Hyett Co-founder and Commercial Director at Vortex and Eralis met Jamie several years ago within the eCommerce ecosphere, and the pair instantly became friends.

Fast forward a couple of years and Jamie and James realised the potential of joining forces and honing their skills and services to form a full-service digital eCommerce agency. Having recently began formal discussions to take their businesses to the next level; Two Jay has been working with the other two teams behind the scenes to ensure the companies were a good fit.

Once we realised our collective potential and finalised the plans to merge, the exciting news was presented to the three teams, Two Jay, Vortex and Eralis. Excited to share the announcement with our customers, partners and friends, we launched AYKO at eCommerce Show North ahead of its official launch date of June 1st. We have so far been delighted by the positive response we have received and are very much looking forward to sharing more news and updates as they arise.
