A diverse set of quotations representative of the things we do - digital strategy, digital business platforms, web and app design, usability & information architecture, online marketing, search engines, hosting and doing better business online.
This year during COVID and with two sets of lockdowns and an unusual amount of time on our hands we have taken the opportunity to reinvigorate our social media presence. As a part of this we wanted to share some quotes that would inspire and inform but everywhere we looked we saw only the views of a small minority of the population represented. For that reason we started what we hope is a diverse, inspiring and thought provoking set of quotations that we will build over time.
