This past October, we reached a significant milestone: it is ten years since we ventured out on our own, with nothing more than a desire to make cool stuff on the internet, and to work on great projects with like-minded clients and partners. Since 2001, we’ve steadily built a roster of clients, many of whom we continue to work with in an ongoing capacity, to extend and improve their online offerings as the state of the art moves forward (which happens literally each and every day).
Cactuslab has transitioned from the duo it was for its first five years, into an eight-person studio (nine over the summer with Christian Sheehan proving his worth as our student intern). We’ve also made the move into native iOS application development over the past three years; this now accounts for as much as a third of our day-to-day work, and has begun to inform our approach to designing for the desktop as well.
This year, we’ve also put some effort into a little side project which we’ll share more about next year. We’re delighted to be where we are, building cool stuff with talented people, and making plans for the next act and beyond. And we wouldn’t have arrived here without tasteful clients and the fun, dedicated team that keep the bunsen burners lit behind the scenes. Happy holidays, see you next year!
