About TR8 Media and how it all began


Where it all started

Tim Lord Creative Director TR8 Media

Creative Director – Tim Lord

TR8 Media is a design, development, production and marketing company based in Newquay, Cornwall, UK. The company came from business development consultant and Creative Director Tim Lord in early 2004 whilst contemplating sourcing a programmer for a project he was working on. Tim mused over the idea of assembling a team of professionals to offer a complete solution for media and application packages – backed up with outstanding support and training to offer clients.

The idea of TR8 Media was born, however it was to be 8 years later until the dream was fully realised as Tim began to gather passionate, creative and talented people around the world to work within the company. As an accomplished freelance designer, developer and consultant – Tim had all the skills necessary to take the helm and steer the business to becoming a trusted and successful digital development company.

Since 2012 we are proud to have worked on hundreds of projects for clients all over the world – helping them to achieve success with digital media, whether that is through web design and development, video production and editing or online marketing. We have the experience, creativity and dedication to help all of our clients and we are passionate about bringing out the best in a business idea and helping to turn that in to a profitable reality.

What’s in a name?

TR8 is actually an abbreviation or text speak for the word “Trait” which means a distinguishing quality or characteristic, typically one belonging to a person.

Trait theory is one of the major theoretical areas of study for personality and it is commonly accepted that there are five core personality traits. Based on research, many psychologists now believe that the five personality traits are not only universal but also have biological origins. The big five dimensions of personality are extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism and openness.

There are studies in to the way in which different personality types respond to certain types of information and this is important and relevant from a marketing and PR point of view for any business.

TR8 is also the first half of the geographical postcode where the company idea was born.
