What inspired you to start your company?
A real love for all things digital. We are designers and developers who wanted to create cool stuff on the Web. To this day, creating stuff drives us; it’s our passion. We enjoy the process of creating.
What was the first job someone hired you for?
When we were just starting out, we designed and built a small 2 page website for a couple hundred dollars. We can still say without a doubt that we were as passionate about creating that website as we are with our work today.
Which work or brand are you best known for?
Most recently, probably our work with Oracle. We helped them design their Social Network Web App.
How has the business changed since you started?
The Web has changed so much in the last 12 years. We can remember building sites with image maps, 1px GIFs, and tables! And using Classic ASP on the backend.
Interface design has also changed dramatically with the introduction of various devices and mobile, as well as a big shift towards clean and ultra simple design.
We love where things are now and we’re excited to explore what the future holds.
What is the best thing about working at Rareview?
The best thing about our space is being able to create new things for different companies in a variety of industries. Since we don’t work in one particular industry, it can be really challenging, but very rewarding working with new clients in various markets. Most of our clients give us a lot of freedom and leeway to explore and that is really fun. It keeps us on our toes, and pretty much means we never get complacent.
