In the early days, we were very much about making attractive looking interactive presentations, and pushing the ‘wonders of the internet’ on uninterested clients who didn’t see a need to be online. We were a team of three people working on relatively small projects for clients such as Barclays, Nokia, Sony Music and Allied Domecq.

In 1999 a media frenzy surrounding all things ‘web’ related engulfed the industry. Suddenly everyone wanted a website. We did well in this period, and invested in new staff and equipment. The Digital Marmalade team grew from three people to ten, and we increased our offer to include video, audio and 3D. In early 2000, Digital Marmalade and New Solutions joined the Omnicom Group, one of the world’s largest marketing and communications companies.
