Talking about ourselves is always tough. Don't want to appear to brag, but we do need to be impressive, 'cause, well ... we are.
Hired Hand Media brings a slew of experience to the table. Many of us have been around the web since its beginnings as a popular medium. We've followed the web's development through its many phases and spent a lot of time analyzing and playing with new technologies. Our eye has been trained to recognize the value of emerging technologies to determine what can bring our clients substantial ROI and what ends up being a waste of time, space and money.
For example, we have been an advocate of Flash since it was called FutureSplash Animator in 1996. We've gone through the phases of heavy all flash sites and using tiny fonts. These days we recognize that the user needs to quickly get to their reason for visiting a site. Some times eye candy is appropriate, but its not for everyone. Flash can be extremely effective if you avoid the temptation to be overpowering.
Another example, when the vibration mouse came out it was advertised as a way to feel the web. After developing several games using the technology, we quickly realized that it was cool, but if only a handful of people could experience it, then where is the ROI?
So what were getting at is we have the experience all right here under one roof. We've done the big agency thing, we've done the freelance thing, we've worked in the small shops. Our goal is to provide you with what you need in order to make your project a success, no matter what it is.
