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.
I can’t believe that BLEND is already 4 years old. A four-year old “child” with the maturity of a forty year old man, experience wise that is…and the culture of a thirty year old, breezy, fresh, hip and full of energy! A unique blend if you think about it. So, how did we manage that? Hmmm…let me tell you..how we do it at BLEND.
I am sure all of us have encountered at some point a 404 page and most of the times an ugly default server error message that stress you out as if you did something wrong!
- Greek Version - «Αδέλφια ενωθείτε» αντήχησε η φωνή του «Νο 1» απο τα μεγάφωνα του σταδίου. Μπροστά του χιλίαδες Web Developers να ζητωκραυγάζουν σηκώνοντας τα μαύρα πληκτρολόγια τους στον αέρα με το ένα χέρι – σήμα κατατεθέν της οργάνωσης. Ήταν η πρώτη παγκύπρια συνάντηση της οργάνωσης «Κουρασμένα Πληκτρολόγια» στο στάδιο ΓΣΠ.
It’s being three years since I wrote an article on how we deal with projects and requests from clients on a day-to-day basis. On the article, I explained how we use different tools to assign tasks to team members and how we collaborate as a team. As needs grow and technology advances, we need to evolve as well and find ways to adapt, improve and speed our processes to increase productivity and performance.
We now live in the Information Age, a period in human history that emerged from the Digital Revolution of the late 20th century. The rapid stream of oversaturated information thrown at us from multiple sources created impulsive and unpredictable consumers with an attention span of merely 3 to 5 seconds. This is how much Brands have in their disposal to engage with their consumers. And this is where User Experience design comes in to provide meaningful and relevant experiences to users.
Hot summer season in Cyprus has been here for months now, and people are looking forward to some well-deserved summer vacations to relax and enjoy the weather. At BLEND we don’t close our office during the mid of August as most local companies do. Instead, we keep our doors open, phone-lines and emails available for our local and overseas clients for any support they may need. Our projects pipelines continue, and we make most of the quiet periods to catch-up with in-house projects. Our BLENDers take their vacations when it suits them and able to make most of their days off. So, how our team plans to relax and re-charge before kicking-off the busy and productive remaining quarter of 2018? Let’s find out!
We are proud to have undertaken a consultation and supporting role to help the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cyprus launch a new era in communication, by upgrading their digital presence, and taking steps towards dynamic ways of communication, through Social Media networks.
New markets, more customers, growth and expansion. Sounds exciting and promising! You have defined your overall business strategy and you have decided which countries to target; so, and next obvious step is to plan your digital strategy.
There are the people that wake up miserable, being sad about going to work, sitting on a chair all day waiting for the time to pass, or being at each other throats about promotions, stabbing their colleagues in the back or accusing them all day. And there are those lucky SOBs that wake up with a smile, going to work singing and whistling, and clapping their feet on the air.
