The IceBlue seeds were sown when we became an incorporated company and moved to a new home. With a few familiar clients and a portfolio of work under our belt, our green shoots were already turning blue.
A crucial year for the IceBlue team saw the launch of the ‘findit’ network, which has since flourished into a mighty oak. Who would have thought, way back when in the days of Nokia and Girls Aloud, that the very first ‘findit’ would lead to more than 40,000 members..?
Technology, technology, technology. This was the year when we worked hard and trained harder. Recognising that new technology would shape marketing, design and software for years to come, we took the leap and became the experts. Google seminars in Chicago, anyone? Well, if we must.
As banks collapsed and the global economy shrivelled, agencies were going out of business left, right and centre – but for IceBlue, this was a time of growth. Thanks to our investment in skills, technology and multiple disciplines, we not only survived the recession but blossomed.
That’s when things got very interesting and innovative. We launched the UK’s first online P11D Manager tax system, the ‘findit’ network took on its fourth major partner and our reputation reached the ears of many major new clients. How do you like them apples..?
Now we’re set for even bigger and better things. Our skills and technology have matured with experience and we’ve grown to a team of 17 people. We’re one of the West Midlands’ most innovative and proven marketing, design and website agencies. If only we could clone our genes.
