long time ago (in 'web' years), when we thought we knew it all,
we started one of Europe's first web design companies. Based in
a Recording Studio, we had a unique environment in which to develop
our trade. Many of the people we met there shared our obsessional
'madness' at the time, and encouraged us to keep going. Many times
we wondered if the web was really going to take off...
that, during the late 1980's, we were playing around with BBS's,
FIDOnet etc on painfully slow connections. The idea of communicating
with people on a global basis was fascinating and addictive. One
day at the end of 1991, using the university network, we "gopher-ed"
a test page from CERN
telling us to go and find a BETA of something called a web browser.
Then the fun began..
with Atari's, we began to explore the emerging new media... then
came CompuServe to the UK. Then the Internet was opened up to the
public, then came the web revolution.
unlike, but similar to many other media, the web has been defined
as many things.
web is neither Print nor Multimedia. It is not a magazine or a newspaper.
It is not Radio or TV. Something so new has to battle to be recognised.
In an attempt to create a mental base in the minds of people, the
term "New Media" has spread into common language.
moved about quite a bit since then.. in an attempt to retain what
was fun about the early years, without becoming overly commercial.
We have certainly improved since the beginning, but we develop and
learn new techniques and skills every day. We are still obsessed
with the web, with graphics, with design...
don't really want to see our very early stuff.. The more memorable
'historic' sites below... They are still on-line, but very out of
date, so we haven't included all the links.
