ELLE Belgium just nominated us in their January edition for “10 young talents that are going to make it in 2014”. And we didn’t even wear Louis Vuitton. Great start of 2014, now the heat is really on.
2013 was an amazing year. The company took some serious steps to gear up for the future and the team was expanded with 4 new people in 2013. One key decision was to hire a full-time UI/UX designer. Raquel joined our team in January 2013 and we asked her to share some of her thoughts on mobile UI/UX. Here’s what our First Lady at WebComrades said. Enjoy!
Making an app is more than just a pretty design. Don’t get me wrong: visualization is important, but what’s even more important is the user experience. Mobile users are impatient, so the first glimpse is all you have. The competition (+1.000.000 apps out and counting) is tough so here’s what we aim to accomplish at WebComrades.
Three years after launching the company, we’re catching press in New York, Chicago and last week: San Francisco & Palo Alto aka Bay Area just to name a few. That’s obviously great news and a relentless team effort. A few days after the publication below we got a call from local Antwerp press too. It seems you need to score overseas to disrupt the local media overhere.
So it’s with pride I’m sharing this press article in the San Francisco Examiner (web) and paper.
As a personal note to all entrepreneurs out there who got virtually kicked, bashed and looked-down by the big boys:
Saying NAY to naysayers, does pay off.
(And thanks a lot Filip De Clerck & Elisabeth van Nueten for the San Francisco snapshots!)
