One door slams…

Yep, there's some sadness about the place this week. By the first weekend in March, we'll have shut the doors at Scribblevision's Riverslea Boulevard studio.

For eight years from this address Scribblevision founder Phill Mackie and his team have turned out cutting-edge design, eloquent content and websites that are dynamic, beautiful and a breeze to navigate.

There have been TV commercials produced, endless batches of business cards printed, signs put up all over Gippsland and smooth SEO (search engine optimisation) campaigns.

Phill – at one point hellbent on a career as a rock star – decided to run his own business when he realised he actually could make a living doing something he loved. (Plus he got to lord it over others as boss.)

From the front office of his family home, he started out. Part-time at first, growing to full-time and then expanding even further – building the studio where we currently sit and taking on support and production staff.

In that time technology has moved faster than Patrick Dangerfield at Adelaide Oval. We’ve witnessed the rise and rise of the Smartphone, average families acquiring devices like they used to grow Brussels sprouts and the adulation of social media.

And in line with all that technological change, we’ve helped our customers to stay ahead of the pack.

We’ll admit that we’ve relied on the premise that caffeine fuels creativity. The amount of coffee drunk during that time would be enough to sustain an all-night rave for narcoleptics and more than once we’ve been at risk of becoming Sugar Australia’s largest target market.

The odd curse or grumble of frustration may have been uttered, and the occasional tear shed, but on the whole it’s been handshakes, high fives and smiles as we delivered time and time again to all our valued clients.

So why are things changing? And what’s ahead? Well they say as one door slams, another opens. We might be closing the door at Riverslea Boulevard, but it’s certainly not the last you have heard from Scribblevision.

Stay tuned for the next exciting update!
