20 ideas from the last 20 years
We've been though our archives and picked out a job from each of the last 20 years that means something to us as part of our celebrations of 20 years in business. There's no real science behind this or any special formula used, they're just a selection of jobs that we were particularly happy with, whether it was from a design or technology perspective or maybe a client we enjoyed working with at the time.
It's always interesting looking back over the portfolio and reminiscing about the projects we've done but we feel it really highlights the depth of experience we've built up as digital agency, especially in web development, when you consider we've been working on e-commerce projects for the likes of Yokohama Tyres, Boots, Burberry and American Golf Discount going back to the year 2000 and even before. Over the years it's been a steady progression of ever more complex and larger solutions from a digital point of view, although there is still a healthy mix of brand, packaging and marketing work.
The other notable, and pleasing, feeling is the number of clients we've worked with for many of those 20 years. These long relationships, which we think demonstrates that we must be doing something right, allow us to build excellent working relationships and really strong knowledge of the organisations, what they do and the markets they operate within allowing us to be really proactive. We love it when we're thought of as part of the team
