Introducing Clearleft | September 21, 2005
It has been a long time coming, but today I’m pleased to announce the launch of my new company website, clearleft.com.
Clearleft is a web design consultancy founded in Brighton, England by myself, Jeremy Keith and Richard Rutter. All having very similar interests and outlooks, we decided that it was time to pool our resources and start working on the kinds of projects we wanted to work on.
We have been hinting at the existence of Clearleft for a while now. The logo made its first public appearance on me and Jeremy’s SXSW05 slides six months ago, albeit without the company name and tag line.
The company itself was soft launched during @media 2005. We didn’t want to make a huge song and dance about our launch, preferring simply to introduce ourselves as Clearleft directors, and adding a link to our holding page on our slides.
We did however hand out a number of our newly printed (ink still wet) business cards, which got a very favourable response. Mostly as it gave people something to read on the train home.
We started building our company site several months ago, however what with client work and book writing commitments, the site has taken a while to perfect. The design actually came about very quickly, but honing the content took the time.
The site is very much in the first stage of development. I actually wanted to add a permanent beta tag to the logo like so many other sites,. However Rich and Jeremy wisely vetoed the idea. Once things have settled down we will be adding case studies, articles, press releases and a new blog.
In the meantime, I’d like to invite you all over to check out our new home. We’d love to hear what you think, so feel free to wander around, check inside the cupboards and let us know what you think of the decor. Just remember to wipe your feet on the way in.
If you like what you see and want to work with us, please feel free to get in touch.
