We are a Brighton-based digital production company, founded in 2003, now with 15 years experience at the forefront of cross-platform production. We have a blended business model that combines original IP development and production, with a digital agency providing interactive development and animation services to companies all over the world. We have an enviable client list that includes some of the biggest names in entertainment, both in the UK and in the USA.
Managing Director, Juliet Tzabar and Creative Director, Dom Minns, met whilst working at digital agency, Victoria Real in 2000. It’s here that they first worked together on an interactive project for kids, a BBC website for a CBBC show, called Xchange.
After spending the following few years each doing their own thing, Dom and Juliet joined forces again in 2006, when Juliet was brought on to project manage one of Plug-in’s early game projects: Extreme Pamplona. In 2009 the team produced BAFTA-winning, Big and Small House for CBeebies and subsequently were able to grow and cement their reputation as a leading kids’ content production company. In 2012 the company diversified into original IP production, bringing Tee and Mo to CBeebies as a suite of web games the following year.
The company currently consists of a hugely talented team of designers, animators, developers and production staff, based in our fabulous workspace in Brighton’s North Laine area. Our busy studio has a positive and cheerful atmosphere, where everyone’s voice is heard. We take huge pride in our work and strive to ensure that every project we deliver has a Plug-in stamp of quality, authenticity and originality. To hear a little more about our approach to making digital content for kids, and to see the team in action watch this video.
Juliet has worked in media production throughout her working life. Following an early career in the art department of television dramas, Juliet moved into digital media in 2000, where she has specialised in delivering interactive projects with a broadcast tie-in and a focus on the children and families audience.
Juliet joined Plug-in Media in 2006 and as Managing Director has overseen the company’s growth and success in the children’s digital content sector. She takes an Executive Producer role on most of the company’s projects, and has been leading the company’s IP strategy, helping to originate and sell brilliant ideas for new kids’ content.

Our busy studio has a positive and cheerful atmosphere. Everyone works hard, but we like to have fun whilst we’re doing it.

We have regular company outings (tickets to the Brighton Fringe Festival is a favourite), have free sandwich or soup Thursdays (depending on the season), the odd rooftop barbeque and all the usual, traditional company benefits such as up to 25 days holiday, childcare vouchers, bike scheme and the like.
