(This is a post I wrote over on my company blog on Slocum Design Studio. I thought it was worth sharing here.)
Can you believe it’s Christmas already?
Just over a year ago my father and I set out to create a new family business. After being in the automobile industry for over 40 years – it was time for a change. My grandfather built our family business on the foundation of great quality products and customer service.
Slocum Design Studio was born with the same intentions.
Build quality web, design, photo and video products that deliver results. All supported by the most talented local team of professionals in our field. With a home in the historic Salt Marsh Pottery building in Dartmouth, MA – customers can feel confident that a strong local company is supporting their investment.
One Year Old And Growing
This last year has been an exciting ride. We have learned a lot from this fast paced industry with our team growing in numbers and talent.
The Web Design and Development team is growing fast at the studio. They continuously challenge each other to produce a high quality product that is cutting edge. Not to be out matched is our extremely talented Video team. They really bring the messages to life with stunning visuals and film. All of us are learning and growing together – a truly awesome experience.
Most importantly, we have learned from you – our customers. We have been recognized in the local business community as a company that delivers a powerful and quality product.
It’s no surprise – our founder, Mark Medeiros, has been doing this for over 40 years as owner/operator of Ralph’s Chevrolet and Cadillac.
