Friends

WOW, that’s a lot of you who like us on social media. Thanks a lot, folks!

When we first started building websites for our clients everyone used a desktop. Even having a laptop was not that common back in 2004. Like everyone else, we built websites for desktops, period. But always looking for the next trend we realized a long time ago that Internet usage behavior was changing. Today the majority of website visitors come from mobile devices. Which means that today we build mobile-first sites that provide a better user experience on all devices.
