When we started out 13 years ago, we wondered why most digital agencies did impressive development or creative design work, but not both. For our enterprise-sized clients, that disconnect created a lot of problems: think everything from inconsistencies in the functionality of their web platforms, to higher maintenance costs and vendor-management headaches.
Most large companies were forced to use multiple agencies, which inevitably turned what should have been a fun and exciting digital experience into a painful one. We knew there had to be a better model-so we built it.
Climax Media was founded to help some of the world's leading companies reimagine their brands with a blend of daring digital development and design work. The goal: to make them shine in a crowded online world.
Of course, there was another mission: to build the kind of agency we'd love to work in each and every day, where a culture of innovation and smart risk-taking always trumps the play-it-safe approach.
Nowadays we introduce ourselves as enterprise web architects, highly-specialized technology pros who combine digital development, user-experience engineering and creative design expertise to produce customized web platforms. We do the strategic planning and creative thinking, then get our hands dirty by building the digital tools our enterprise-sized clients need most.
So, how did we improve on the time-tested web development model? We thought differently about delivering services and unifying two very different disciplines. That meant creating the kind of holistic client experience we'd expect when working with an agency like ours. So, we built our process around strong communication, collaboration and a commitment to understanding our clients' pain points and brand aspirations. Then we listened and kept bringing great ideas to the table. In other words, we didn't just provide services. We became their partners.
Oh, and we also indulged our passion for technology by developing proprietary content-management tools and incorporating some of the latest and greatest technology our industry had to offer. We gave our people opportunities to play with new software and innovate by simply imagining where we could help our clients take their brands. It's the kind of daydreaming most bosses discourage. We insist on it.
All of that helped us attract some of the digital world's best and brightest talent, while forming long-lasting relationships with leading international corporations such as Honda, Brookfield and Acura. Each day our people get to help these giants overcome huge hurdles-the kind of challenges they love to solve. In turn, our clients' marketing and IT teams rely on us to deliver the goods on time and on budget, and help them anticipate the 'next big thing' on the digital front.
So, that's our story. Now we're busy writing the next chapter, & we'd love you to be in it.
