A Q&A With Our Founder, & Our Origin Story!

Kindling was founded and is run by Cameron Taylor and he’s based in Crossgates, Fife. He’s been involved in the creation of websites and the wider technology industry for over half of his life and is committed to bringing his experience in sourcing customers to small businesses across our delivery region.

As a young teenager Cameron first started working with website design as it interested him, tinkering here and there. He then started a small agency working with online games and small local firms in his mid teens and eventually sold the business and went on to work with some of the biggest technology companies in the world and helped them to build, scale and grow their customer acquisition models.

The story behind Kindling starts with our old name, KY Designs, and is this: “I was sitting in my car at the very start of COVID before going to queue to get into ASDA and get the weekly shop when I heard an advert on Forth One for their parent company (Bauer Media) advertising small business websites for only £8000+VAT. At a time where small businesses didn’t know where their next pound was coming from they were using their position of trust to get these small companies to cough up big money for a website without any strategy, marketing or planning. It seemed ridiculous to me, so I started KY Designs in an effort to bring affordable marketing and design to small businesses. As they say, the rest is history. We’re still here and they aren’t advertising any longer so I’ll take that as a win!”

At the end of 2023, and leading into 2024 KY Designs then became Kindling, reflecting more of where we are as a marketing & lead generation agency today rather than being design focused. This is also when we went on to take on our lovely little office on Main Street in Crossgates. 

Over the next few years, we plan to open another office in a nearby city (all revealed in due course..!) to help facilitate our services into that region and from there, the world’s our oyster! We’re all about steady growth. The same way we approach our clients’ campaigns is how we approach our own business, with loads of creativity and constant testing, innovating, failing and ultimately always striving for a better result.

What's the catch?

We asked Cameron what the most common question he got asked were, and it’s usually either “What’s the catch?” or “Why are you so affordable?”, here’s his answer from our Q&A session.

His answer was: “It’s really simple actually. Being really honest we don’t plan to take over the world, we don’t plan to build the biggest agency, we’re not interested in having the biggest delivery teams or winning the biggest awards in the industry. I’ve tried to do that before and it was really stressful and honestly boring after a few years. What really interests me is building something that makes a difference. I’m working class to the core and I’m not interested in putting another Range Rover in an executives’ driveway. I’m interested in helping a local plumber put more vans on the road, a family business find more customers so they can hire more staff and reduce their working hours so they can spend quality time together, I’m interested in working class business owners taking their kids to Disneyland. That’s what excites me about this business. Typically those customers can’t afford a larger agency and in turn can’t grow reliably. Here’s the kicker, I done the maths and figured out that if we can find enough customers in the market and get a tight enough process for delivering what we say we will, we can hire the staff and deliver exactly that, all within their budget – and that’s exactly what we’ve done.”

You heard it here first folks, if you want to:

  • Get more quality time with family.
  • Sustainably build a bigger team. 
  • Repeatable, reliable leads for you business. 
  • Or just take the kids to Disneyland.

Cameron made me a website for my pet product business and I can't recommend him highly enough. He was very helpful and explained everything I needed to know. I have already recommend KY Designs to a number of other small business like myself and I will continue to do so. Everyone is always giving me great feedback on my website and this wouldn't of been possible without using KY Designs
