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 an agency should go along with what’s current, reflecting your skills, creativity, brand positioning and making 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 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 end up becoming one of the most demanding clients you could get.

Validation means checking whether a page is free of errors, using a computer program.

We did things because they looked nice and because that was what our client wanted to see.
