3 Media Web Celebrates 15 Years of Web Development
Happy birthday to us! This month, we’re celebrating 15 years of building beautiful websites for our clients, and we’re looking forward to many more. We’ve seen a lot of growth and changes over the past 15 years, and there’s plenty to be excited about in the future as we continue to grow and offer more agency web design services to our clients.
How the Web Development Industry Has Changed
A lot has changed since we opened our doors in 2001. Significant technological advances and a greater understanding of web design have brought richer possibilities to the world of web design, and we’ve kept up the whole way. As web tools have become more powerful, we’ve seen a lot of emphasis on using frameworks and reducing redundancy. We’ve also seen a much bigger focus on user experience, information architecture, building for SEO, accessibility, and calls to action. Plus, web developers have adopted CSS (separating the style definitions from the content) and HTML5 (which added more multimedia support). Another significant change since 2001: No. More. Flash.
Of course, mobile design is much bigger now than it was even five years ago. It’s brought a greater awareness of the importance of responsive web design and has inspired us to stay at the forefront of responsive design best practices.
Internally, we’ve narrowed our focus on our core services over the past few years. We started as a catch-all web development agency where we took on various projects. Now we choose the projects we work on, specializing in custom web design projects using custom development in WordPress. Because of our narrowed focus, we now collaborate with trusted partners to help our clients meet their goals.
We’ve worked with clients of all sizes (small-to-medium sized companies and national, multi-billion dollar companies). Our work for clients has taken us into all sorts of industries, including software, biotech, law, pharma, manufacturing, technology, startups, and education. We’ve grown our client base over the years, and as a result, we’ve expanded our team. We were just honored with three IMA awards, which recognize high standards in web design. We couldn’t be prouder.
What’s Next for 3 Media Web
With 15 years under our belts, we’re looking ahead at sustainable, healthy growth. We couldn’t have done it all without our talented team. Everyone has pitched in and helped us take on the ever-expanding responsibilities of a growing business. We have created a collaborative work atmosphere for our globally diverse team through cloud-based technology and best-in-class web services. We find ways to come together in group chat rooms, monthly Google Hangouts, project management software, and daily catch-ups.
Thanks to all our clients, partners, and supporters for helping us get to 15! We’re excited to see what the future holds for 3 Media Web.
