What a year it's been and I can't believe just how quickly it's all passed (yet again!).
2014 has been a huge year for us here at Soul Digital as we've welcomed many new clients to the Soul family. The year began with a huge redesign & redevelopment project for Avalon Airport, followed quickly by First Samuel, Kildonan UnitingCare and the AARC. Meanwhile, Yellow Octopus continued to push our Magento expertise to the absolute limit and a startup by the name of Rookie Me took our offices by storm. We couldn't be prouder of any effort or result that we've obtained this year.
Throughout all of this, we outgrew our Gladstone St office and moved into a larger space around the corner (on Buckhurst St) and quickly adapted to life within a warehouse. Our first purchase was indeed a ping-pong table that quickly saw its fair share of joy and utter despair, Matt Collins joined the team and our standup desks marked the official beginning of our fit-out. If you haven't already, be sure to read our so eloquently titled blog post: Everybody wants our standup desks.
Around the time we redeveloped our own website (what do you think?), Tim, Jason and I managed to attend the Sydney Web Directions event (which we actually co-sponsored) where we met and showcased some of our work to the SilverStripe community that attended. It was a highly successful event followed by several insightful days in New Zealand where again, Tim and I worked within the offices of Stripe the Web learning from some of the best. A great bunch of guys down/over there ;)
Just like I can't wait for Mondays, we cannot wait for next year. Along with continuing to improve the level of expertise and service that we provide our clients, 2015 is already set to be a memorable one. Our blog is in full swing, we have some great plans for our office and even better ones for our projects.
Be safe and enjoy the holiday season. Again, from all of us at Soul Digital, thank you for all your support this year and may 2015 bring you health, happiness, prosperity.
