Looking back we remember 1996 as if it was yesterday; Three Lions was released as the official anthem of the England football team for the European Championships, the first ever cloning of a mammal took place and Dolly the sheep was born, the movie Twister became the first featured film released on DVD, and Motorola launched the StarTAC, the smallest and lightest mobile phone on the planet.
HMA has gone from strength to strength since we were established as ‘New Media’ in 1996 and we thank all of our clients who have made the last 18 years a success, many of which have been with us since the early days.
When we first started out, the Internet was just starting to gain momentum but was still only a few years old, Google.com didn’t exist, there were only 100,000 active websites, and most people were using dial up Internet connections. Today this figure has grown to over 968 million! (Netcraft).
Fast forward by almost two decades and the team has grown to 21, we’ve won a number of awards, have recently been voted the top digital agency in South Yorkshire and have built many long term relationships.
“When we first started we were one of only around a dozen or so companies doing web design and services like computer-generated imagery. Whilst there is a lot more competition, our history means we can combine experience with cutting edge ideas” Rob Hill, Managing Director, HMA Digital Marketing.
Digital marketing is a complex business that requires a wide range of skills and we pride ourselves on continuing to evolve in order to deliver tailored solutions to our clients to support their development and growth.
It has been a fantastic adventure so far and we thank you again for your continued support. Here’s to the next 18!
