In 1994, the World Wide Web was a burgeoning frontier, vastly different from today’s dynamic and integral part of everyday life. It was a year of significant digital milestones, such as the founding of Amazon and Yahoo, and the establishment of the first online shopping transaction. This era’s websites were rudimentary by today’s standards, often text-heavy with basic HTML, and primarily served as digital brochures.
Our genesis mirrors this early web ethos. Our first website, crafted by our founder JM Littman, was a simple homage to his husky dogs. In an era where most websites were personal projects or hobby-centric, this was a novel venture. Our subsequent project, Rockfotos (photo right), a site for Ian Dickson photography, offered a glimpse into the future of e-commerce, allowing visitors to get in touch for purchasing options. Looking back, it might have been one of the first steps towards what we now know as online shopping.
Over the years, we’ve crafted over 800 websites, continually adapting to the ever-changing digital landscape. We’ve witnessed and contributed to the evolution from basic HTML pages to today’s sophisticated, interactive websites that are integral to business success. Our journey has been marked by working with an array of prestigious clients, from industry giants like Budweiser, BBC, Texaco and Cisco to icons such as David Beckham and Lewis Hamilton. We’ve supported organizations across various every sector, including Caterham F1, Foxconn, Golden Tours, Intel, Kuehne + Nagel, Quaife, NHS, Planet Hollywood, TradeStation, and Senzati.
Our success is rooted in our ability to stay ahead of trends, understand our clients’ evolving needs, and deliver cutting-edge, user-friendly, and impactful web solutions. Whether it’s creating an engaging corporate website, an e-commerce platform, or a bespoke digital experience, we pride ourselves on our ability to bring our clients’ visions to life, ensuring they stay at the forefront of their respective industries.
Reflecting on the past 30 years, the web has undergone a transformative journey. From static pages to dynamic, interactive platforms, the web’s evolution has been nothing short of revolutionary. As pioneers in this space, we have not only witnessed this change but have been a driving force in shaping it.
Our commitment to excellence and innovation has been unwavering. We continuously invest in our team, tools, and technology to ensure we remain at the cutting edge of web design and development. Our approach combines creativity with technical expertise, ensuring that each website we create is not only visually stunning but also functionally superior.
Looking ahead, we are excited about the future. The digital landscape continues to evolve at a breakneck pace, and we are well-equipped to meet its challenges. As we step into our next decade, we are enthusiastic about continuing our work with our esteemed clients and eager to welcome new ones.
The internet of 2024 and beyond promises even more advancements and opportunities. With the rise of technologies like artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and the Internet of Things, the scope for innovative web solutions is boundless.
