It is a bank holiday weekend here in England which means we get Monday off work (yay!) and that last week was a manic rush to get orders out on time for the inevitable short deadline jobs that seem more common at this time of year.
On the staff front we have had some changes, with Opal Witney, our Australian client services team member, heading off on her travels to the south of France, whilst Eleni Panayis, has joined Indigo again now her university summer holidays have kicked in. We also welcome her twin sister, Tys, who joins us also for the summer. Tys is no stranger to Indigo, having modelled for the first WordPress t-shirt photoshoot, but her real passion is her singing career (myspace.com/tyspanayis) which I am sure we’ll hear more of on the blog over the next few weeks! Jo Myronidis is now general manger and leads the team into our new financial year come the 1st July.
On the web side, Tom Loudon has joined our sister company Indigo Two Ltd and, in between developing email and website campaigns for Lombard and British Airways, he has taken over the mantle from Matt Attlee (who has gone on to join the BBC) and has made some neat updates to the Indigo Clothing website. For example there are now sexy new quote calculators on the individual product pages that generate the prices in real-time. Our web traffic continues to build nicely and a Page Rank increase to 6, two weeks ago, was a nice surprise.
As for clients we have done work for some big names including Sony Europe, Ordnance Survey, Liverpool Victoria (LVE), Tower Hamlets NHS Trust and many more, whilst maintaining our relationship with Johnson and Johnson, JJB, WordPress and the Southbank Centre. We have also had some great orders from our smaller customers and we’ll feature some of the on the blog over the coming weeks as case studies.
There is plenty going on behind the scenes here that I can’t make public yet but I will say, despite the negative economic outlook, the office is positively buzzing with orders, is full of large piles of sweets and shortbread biscuits and smiley happy people!
