Our top moments of a very successful year, 2017

23rd January 2018 By Mark Parsons
As we rapidly approach the end of January, and the first month of 2018 draws to a close, we take a moment to reflect on the year gone by and what we consider to be our top moments of 2017.

January: Our very own website goes live and we receive two awards

After months of hand-coding, writing content and testing, we developed a completely bespoke website that is super-fast loading, fully responsive and enhanced with pioneering features and functionality. Just weeks after launch it received several global design and web awards.

February: We moved into our brand new Chester HQ

Now a team of more than two, we move from a home-office to our brand new office on Chester Business Park.

March: We introduce our bespoke profit share scheme

Here at Kolodo, we pride ourselves on our company values. For that reason, we were delighted to implement a generous profit share scheme to ensure that when our business does well, every member of the team does, too!

April: The Eclectic Lifestyle Company chose us as their digital partner

Taking them through a complete re-brand including the production of a new logo, colour scheme and industry-leading eCommerce website, we were delighted to attain The Eclectic Lifestyle Company as a digital partner back in spring.

May: Welcome on board, Tyn Dwr Hall

May saw the acquisition of a brand new contract with Tyn Dwr Hall, a luxury destination wedding venue located in the beautiful town of Llangollen, North Wales. We’ve since launched their brand new website, designed and printed their new brochures and we’re just about to launch our latest venture with them!

June: Matt Ainsworth joins the team

With a wealth of experience in web and app development, Matt joined us following several years working for local digital agencies. Matt has now progressed to Lead Front-end Developer, overseeing the whole of the development team here at Kolodo.

July: We surprised the team with an afternoon at Go Ape

The change in weather seemed the perfect excuse to get out and do something a little different, so we surprised the entire team with an afternoon outing at Go Ape! You can read all about it, here.

August: Tom celebrates a year at Kolodo

Our first full-time staff member, Tom Knight, celebrated his first year at Kolodo back in August. We celebrated with a plethora of cake, of course!

September: We hit quarter of a million in annual turn-over

Perhaps one of our biggest achievements to date, we were delighted to hit the £250,000 milestone prior to the end of 2017.

October: We’re awarded a six-figure project by Darwin Escapes

Having worked with Darwin Escapes for a little over 12-months, we were delighted to be given the opportunity to ensure that they had, and continue to have the digital infrastructure and platform in place to support their ambitious growth plans. An excellent win for our team with a value of over £120,000.

November: Our MD, Josh, is shortlisted for ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ and ‘Digital Personality of the Year’ awards

Recognised for his unparalleled dedication to Kolodo, Josh was shortlisted for his personable approach to both the business and its clients.

December: We move to our brand new HQ in Liverpool’s prestigious Mann Island and welcome Becca to the team

Here at Kolodo, we ended the year on a high! December played host to our relocation to our brand new HQ in Liverpool’s prestigious Mann Island, in addition to welcoming our new Studio ManagerBecca to the team.

What a year! We’re really excited to see what 2018 has to offer, which is already in full swing.
