My first 'web business' was called 'base6 Design Limited' – I founded it just over 5 years ago as a way to make my freelance work more 'official'.
It worked out pretty well and I had some really great clients all over the world but today base6 is no more, it's become part of my new venture Make Do.
People that know me will know that Make Do has actually been going for over a year now. We (Matt and I) announced it's formation at the closing remarks of The Digital Barn 2 as a company that we would put all of our events through. Not long after we decided it should be more than that and at the end of last year we merged all of our assets and projects (events, products, agencies, clients) into a single entity: Make Do.
An agency, with a bit more…
At the heart of Make Do (read, where the money comes from) is the design & development Agency. We provide Practical WordPress design & development solutions and are using our background and experience in the public sector (NHS and Local Gov) to help big clients adopt and expand WordPress for their needs.
The rest of the Make Do business is mostly the events that we run like The Digital Barn, our Hack Day and the new Front End North conference. You can read more about these on the website and for me personally this is a great because it allows me to do the two things that I love, make websites and run events, all under one roof.
You say hello
And so, goodbye base6 Design, my sweet little friend. It was a good run but I've moved onto bigger and better things.
