We are 10 years old!

Posted on 01 September 2011 by Rachel Andrew


It seems hard to believe but edgeofmyseat.com is 10 years old today. I started the company with the help of The Prince’s Trust in September 2001 – essentially as a sole trader doing development work for design agencies.

From that point we have grown – until fairly recently maintaining that focus of outsourced development for designers. Drew McLellan joined the company 4 years ago enabling us to shift some of our focus onto products, developing a content management system framework for internal use and our mini CMSPerch.

Things have changed a lot in 10 years. 10 years ago Netscape 4 was the browser we though would never go away; people like me who insisted on using CSS for layout were seen as a little bit odd; and I hadn’t written any books! 10 years makes us a very established company in web terms, but a company that still wants to work at the cutting edge. It would get very boring otherwise.

Thanks to all our clients and Perch customers for sharing the journey with us. We’re looking forward to the next ten years, and excited to be part of what the web will become by then.
