When Amy approached me with the idea of starting a company together I was immediately interested. I’d been going through the motions of applying for graduate positions but nothing I was doing felt right. I couldn’t see myself fitting into a traditional graduate scheme and I certainly wasn’t excited by the prospect. I needed to do something different. I needed to find a way to put my unique blend of creative thinking and technical know-how to good use.
So when Amy said “let’s do this” I jumped at the opportunity. We’d worked together before so we knew the partnership worked. Our skills were a perfect match for each other: Amy is super creative and trained in graphic design, while I have the technical skills to take her designs and turn them into pixel-perfect and feature-complete websites. We’re both passionate about helping businesses to achieve their full potential and we both believe in the transformational power of great design.
Our vision for the company is this: to grow into a successful creative digital agency that businesses aspire to work with and employees love to work for.
We’re ambitious, we’re motivated, and we’re excited to make our vision become a reality. We want to be the go-to name for fantastic web design. We’ll have offices and staff and we’ll provide services unlike anybody else. I’m so thrilled to have the opportunity to build something truly great and to put my skills to good use doing something that I love.
My advice is to grab opportunities as soon as you see them. Don’t worry too much about what might happen if things don’t work out. If it’s worth doing and it’s something that you love, you will make it work. Plan early, work hard and don’t be afraid of trying new things. Experiment. Most importantly: don’t do something just because it’s what everyone else is doing.
Be different. Stand above the crowd.
