WHERE IP WEBCRAFT STARTED
ip Webcraft was founded in 1998 by Sean Burger. These were very exciting times, as it was his dream to open this business for a long while before he was actually able to get around to it. Connecting and going onto the internet during this era felt like a journey of discovery. The sound of the 56L dial-up modem making a connection was something kids today will never get the pleasure of experiencing. Everything was new and with every website created, there was an immense sense of accomplishment. One which is fairly unrivalled today.
Our formative years were spent creating table-based websites in, dare I say, MS Frontpage 98 (it had to start somewhere right?), Net Objects Fusion And later, Macromedia’s Dreamweaver. Everything changed after we got our first copy of Macromedia Flash in our small office, as it allowed us creative freedoms never before imaginable. It was visually exciting and interactive, and more stimulating than anything before it. We would build websites for just about anyone who would want one. There was no Google Ad-word campaigns, social media or anything of the sort, so spreading the word about your business was nowhere near as easy as it is today.
Sean is a mostly self-taught designer and in 2004 was joined by Stan Matthews a veteran designer and creative director hailing from the UK and Duncan Newton an extraordinary designer that looked a lot like a 90’s rock guitarist (he actually played the bass guitar). Sean learned the finer design skills under their guidance. Our client at the time included Century City and we did many of the great brand designs including many of the logos that are still seen today.
After Stan retired we focused on web development as our main focus. We then entered the mobile era and Adobe Flash was reaching the end of it’s heyday. Since the we have been mainly focused on getting the most out of WordPress, our goto development environment.
