Sometimes you forget to sit back and take a look at what you’ve achieved. We’re forever travelling at 100mph; there’s always something to do, someone to see, some place to be. So, although it’s a little late coming (considering it’s now mid-February) I thought that it would be nice to document a few of the things that have happened over the past 12 months.
This time last year we didn’t have any employees, nor did we have a permanent address (were running the business out of two home offices). Chris Kemm was in Leeds, having left Brass just 3 months prior, and I was still in Sheffield. Sometimes we worked from Leeds, sometimes from Sheffield, and sometimes from both — it wasn’t the best, but it worked for us at the time.
The year got off to a flying start. We were building an installation for the National Media Museum, designing our first financial services website and branding a new international mechanical and electrical engineering company. We spoke at the University of Huddersfield Barnsley Campus on ‘An Introduction to Digital Marketing’ for the third year running, and of course we attended New Adventures in Web Design, which was brilliant.
February brought us the opportunity to work on the re-branding of an online property management system, Property Prefect. This was a great project as we played a part in everything from naming the company to redeveloping their sales website and redesigning the management system interface. After several weeks of really hard work TES Foundation was born. (It was also the first time we used a high-resolution logo for the Apple retina display!).
