A decade on
by: Ashley Sheinwald | October 18, 2011
Wow, it’s been a decade and yet it only feels like yesterday that Planet Interactive was founded back in 2001. Thankfully we’ve been really busy and lucky to work with some amazing clients.
Our first site was an interactive exploration into the concept of operating system (OS) design for the web. A community concept, a showcase of interaction, some completely off topic areas like the snack shack (quick office recipes – as we often missed lunch) and an interactive forum as well as news and the standard corporate services and projects information you would actually expect from a design agency website. Interchangeable desktop colours or branded images, music selection, icon and window locations etc. all stored by your registration; coded to revert to exactly how you left it upon retuning to the site, was not expected! It seems futile now as this type of customisation has become the norm, rich internet applications (RIA) have engulfed the web to represent our working and social lives online. But that wasn’t the case back then.
Back to present time, we’d simply like to say:
Welcome to our new site and blog.
We’re going to be covering some interesting stuff here. Obviously updating our readers on our progress and any current project highlights, but also industry insights and news, design and coding spotlights, maybe a tutorial or two and a focus on marketing, communications and social media.
So like us, hear our chirp or subscribe to the RSS feed. We wont be spamming, we wont be bombarding your inbox, we will only post when we have something interesting or something newsworthy or of interest to the industry or business.
We hope you like the new look and if your interested in any of our services please get in touch.
