We kick start 2022 with a fresh new website that we feel better highlights our projects especially as we continue to expand our agency offering to help clients tell their digital story with bespoke solutions.
I have always been incredibly proud of the work we produce – but never more so than recently and I hope this comes across within our portfolio.
The past two years (like many I am sure due to Covid) have been somewhat transformational, we have found ourselves expanding services such as brand identity, photography, video and bespoke web applications.
We always provided these as part of our core website design and WordPress development service – but they have now become standalone and unique offerings.
Whether it was video for a corporate property portfolio, photography for a new maternity clothing range or a web application for customers to manage their online accounts each have been a stand alone project – something to promote, something to be proud of.
The New Crew
To support this growth we have made some changes within management, Cathal Mac an Bheatha has accepted the role of ‘Creative Director’, while Bríain O’Donoghue now fulfills ‘Head of Development’. Their respective teams will also grow – most recently with the addition of Richard Belton as Junior Designer.
When presenting a proposal to a new client I often like to start with a quote – one of my favorites is by Steve Jobs “Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works”.
Mr. Jobs was of course talking about Apple products – but this quote applies itself so well to an agency like ours.
Indeed websites need to be aesthetically pleasing, but it’s so much more than this. They are a product, a tool for your business to achieve something and create some form of connection and conversion.
“To design something really well, you have to get it. You have to really grok what it’s all about. It takes a passionate commitment to really thoroughly understand something, chew it up, not just quickly swallow it. Most people don’t take the time to do that.”
I would like to think our clients know ‘we take the time’, the time to understand their business and their requirements, the time to understand their customers and reasons for using their service, the time to ensure we deliver a product and tool to enhance their business and tell their story though a well conceived and planned UX/UI.
And, I would like to think you will see this within our work.
Finally, we have also made the decision to ‘ditch’ our old blog and instead create Journal entries that will explore our work in finer detail while occasionally sharing our thoughts.
