Social Republic .Net
With Social Republic at an embryonic stage, the website development project was always going to be one that would call for flexibility and a willingness to explore and evolve ideas rather than work from a rigid brief.
My initial feelings were that the project would be best handled by a large agency with a team of specialists and so I engaged a firm with a blue chip client base that assured me would be exactly the right agency for the project. However, a skills deficit emerged and some six months later I returned to my original list of potentials, one of which was Core Media Design. I had never doubted their competence, professionalism and quality of work, so I signed on the dotted line and the project to create Social Republic.net initiated again.
I needn't have worried because immediately it became apparent that my primary needs: for input, direction and flexibility; were going to be met: full on.
Sebastian collaborated brilliantly and stayed with the project tenaciously as its course naturally progressed. I was conscious that this way of working may test a developer with the changes in direction, but Sebastian patiently supported the discovery process and contributed highly valuable guidance that was commercially and technically sound.
Sebastian is testament to the fact that you don't need to pay London prices to enjoy high level technical ability, gifted design talent, flexibility and commercial awareness. With Sebastian you get all of this, wrapped up in a personable individual. A pleasure to do business with.
