We have been busy!!

Sorry for the lack of updates, no excuse I know, but wow, have we been busy...

Our new training focussed service the Website Academy now has it's own dedicated site. Why not take a look around We are running courses that range from 1/2 day SEO training, giving you the basic knowledge to improve your search engine listings, through to the Website Academy course itself - resulting in your bespoke designed website launch.

What about in the studio?

Okay, here's a few projects we have been working on:


We have also been helping out our new office neighbours, with the front end development of two really interesting projects, all supporting very worthy causes:


Some quite complex jQuery work...

With all of this going on, plus our digital marketing programs - email broadcasts, seo, ppc management and facebook advertising (very effective btw), the run from summer to the year end has been fun - ready for the holidays now though! :-)

Have a great break if I don't manage to update again before the new year, but keep an eye on our Tweets.
