In 2015 three friends decided to join forces and create the agency that is established and well known today as BLEND Digital. Fast forward 5 years later we are servicing clients from all over the world and winning awards and recognition non-stop.
For about 2 years now, I haven't made any design predictions on future trends in web design. The main reason is that personally I did not notice any drastic trends emerging. Instead, the last two years had lots of similarities between them with very slow differences. This year, I’m bringing re-enforcement's by also sharing what our design team thinks will trend in the new year.
Feeling so excited and overwhelmed. With three entries in the very first Cyprus Digital Marketing awards ever organized in Cyprus, BLEND's work has been recognized and acclaimed with three awards.
If you are a start-up owner or someone whose business survived this long without a website and wondering if you need one, I will save you some time.
What an exciting last couple of months for us! Our very own BLEND website received an Honors award for it’s design, development, creativity and content by the number one website critique platform Awwwards.com.
WordPress the platform WordPress was released in 2003 by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little. Today WordPress is used by more than 60 million websites. But what is it, that makes WordPress so popular? To begin with WordPress is a content management system, the most popular one, and a web development framework powered by PHP. At Blend, WordPress is one of the platforms we are using to build corporate and promotional websites. In the following paragraphs I am going to talk about my experience working with WordPress and how WordPress helped me to improve my creativity and web development skills. Moreover, I will explain the advantages of WordPress, this open source framework and how this affects our clients.
After the summer break, and with our batteries all re-charged we often find ourselves taking stock of our past year’s achievements. Over and above of growing our team and improving our project management & internal processes. When looking back at how many projects we have completed we are simply feeling proud of our work and thankful. Grateful that so many organizations have entrusted BLEND to design and develop their website, in direct response to their unique needs and requirements.
And it is finally here!! Anyone in the industry will know how much of a challenge it is to get around and design and build your new agency website. Technologies and trends evolve rapidly and ideally your website as a digital agency should go along with what’s current. This should reflect your skills, creativity, brand positioning and make you stand out. But one of the challenges is managing to find the time and resources to do this before you change your mind on your initial concept. It is a project where you would like to consider that the sky is the limit, and you expect to do your most creative work without anyone holding you back. But as it turns out, you yourself ends up becoming your most demanding client.
