So a bit about SiliconStudio
A short history about SiliconStudio; We’re a UK based full-service creative digital agency partnership with roots that go back to 1982 and the early days of electronic publishing on compact disc for government and education. Having been there from the beginning of hypertext, this experience provided us with a jump-start as the internet fired up in the early 90’s. To pursue new opportunities of the world wide web, SiliconStudio relocated to Dallas Texas and completed its first website project in 1994. As an extension and result of this activity, SiliconStudio diversified it’s activity and became involved with other pioneering web technologies such as VOIP.
Today SiliconStudio is based in the University City of Oxford UK. We still maintain commercial ties in North America and we serve US based corporate and agency clients from Oxford. Our studio is a rich pool of technical, creative and diverse talent providing many advantages which allows us to maintain a cutting edge and fresh approach for our local, US and European client’s projects.
Throughout our successful history, we have been able to maintain an intense passion for good design and usability, crafted with stable leading-edge standards compliant technology. In addition to creating, designing or producing simple informational websites, e-commerce and highly complex sites, animation design, Social Networks or video post-production, SiliconStudio also creates brand identities and designs in print. From logos, exhibitions and marketing communications to award winning and eye-catching retail packaging across many industry sectors.
Whether we are creating a simple content managed website that really gets our clients noticed, branding for start-ups or an update to a multi-national’s existing brand with a fresh and effective website design, SiliconStudio approaches each project with a fresh professional attitude and project vision that often exceeds the needs of our valued clients.
On every project that SiliconStudio undertakes, we always go that extra mile to help clients succeed through our contribution to their business. We operate under the core belief, which is, “if it’s good for our clients, it’s good for us“.
