2010 at Casa Codegent

Well, that was quite a year... It is curious how the days go by so fast yet January seems like such a damned long time ago. It’s been a busy one for us and in true schedule-filling style we thought we’d give you a little synopsis of ‘la dolce vita’ at Codegent in the year 2010.

The New Year heralded the birth of the Codegent Apps team, headed up by Mark and Luke, to focus on the development of web applications. And they’ve been busy bees, launching webcamsnapper (as seen on Brizzly, Twitpic, Daily Booth), Twilert and Twitbooth and developing getDash which is due for launch in early January. We even brought Dustin Curtis over from the States to work with us on the interface development of getDash back in March.

Mark has also been making his voice heard around the globe, invited to attend South by South-West in March as part of the UK Digital Mission. He’s also been out and about in London, speaking at live events and hobnobbing with the bright young things of the internet.

On the agency side there have been launches a-plenty for clients old and new: a few stand outs include sites for the British Library, 4 for the Mental Health Foundation, The Hoxton and Searcys. We’ve run Facebook campaigns for Pepsi and built a healthy collection of iPhone and iPad Apps: you can get a bit more info on of this work on our portfolio. It’s also been another year of awards, with Tepilo and The Hoxton picking up silverware in the w3 Awards and nominations in the BIMAs.

We’ve been pretty busy too on the staff front with people coming and going. Lauren packed her bags and went off travelling, whilst Aidan finally caved in and joined us full-time along with Nor, Panu, Bruna, Agnieszka, Michael & Joseph – quite the band of merry men! The office is starting to get a bit full and it won’t be too long before we need to start thinking about a new home.

There have been weddings (Mr and Mrs Kane and Mr and Mrs Tangnoi), babies (David and Jane – due in about a week), a new swanky office in Bangkok and I got another bike.

So Father Time marches on. Au revoir 2010, I think you could say it has been a successful one. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
