Exciting news from the farm...
We have a few very exciting updates from Online Designs HQ. We won't bore you with the details, but...
Welcome Shaun as a full-time member of the team!
Shaun is going to hate this photo...
For those of you who didn't know, Shaun has always divided his attention between websites and his computer repairs business. We're very lucky to now be in a position to both work full-time for Online Designs and offer you guys a better service. Woohoo!
We have finally finished our home office. Come for a coffee! ☕
As you can see in the picture above, we have finally finished our home office, complete with a lovely meeting table for you guys to come and have a coffee if you ever want to chat about your website. Now I'm just trying to stop Shaun from cluttering it up...
We have a new business name, some of you will be pleased to hear! 🌟
Our business name (Online Designs UK St Neots Ltd) was causing some clients issues when trying to pay from HSBC. It was a bit of a mouthful anyway, so we've changed to the much simpler and easy to type Kwoosh ltd. Don't worry, we're still Online Designs to the world, but when dealing with payments, you'll notice the new name on the invoices. Why Kwoosh? We were waiting for a client's feedback on their website design, and when it came back positive, Shaun was so happy he sighed 'oh kwoosh.' Once we'd stopped laughing, we realised it was quite a unique business name.
We're working abroad in May & June 🇺🇸
It's a big decision and we know it's a bold move, but we've decided to make the most of our move-able business and work in the USA for May & June. We are still working, but we may have slightly reduced hours with the occasional extra day off. We'd really appreciate it if you allow us a bit more time than usual to complete non-urgent requests such as website changes or general queries while we run our business alongside completing this huge life dream.
A little practice working trip we had to Budapest in February. We are always thankful our clients are so wonderful and appreciate us having a good work/life balance! That's it for now!
As always, pop us an email if you want to chat. We love hearing from you all. Bye for now!
