An introduction to Good Work

In 2007 I started a small web design company with my college roommate. We got an office downtown a few days after graduating and went door to door looking for business. I was the website guy, he was the business guy. We weren’t quite sure what we were doing but we were having fun and we went all in.

We ran the company for about four years, and learned a ton along the way, but started to feel like jumping straight into our own business was the wrong route for us. We felt like we needed more experience to really do things right, so a few months later we went and got ourselves some bosses.

I went to Erskine Design in Nottingham, UK for a little over three years. Working with companies like the BBC and Endsleigh I learned how big, complex digital projects work. I learned what a team of really smart, quality focused people are capable of. How to work better with clients, money, operations, etc. I learned how to run an international small business.

So, in early 2014, I started Good Work. A no-nonsense, highly experienced digital client services agency. Over the years I’ve gained a unique perspective on how different tasks and situations in an agency environment are handled internationally v.s. here in the states, and I’m excited to create a hybrid between the two. I want to design a place that people want to be a part of; both clients and employees.

Since starting the company a few months ago, we’ve worked on some cool, challenging projects, and have even more in the works. I want to work on the projects that matter — whether that be client projects or our own. Less temporary campaign websites and more digital products and services that people rely on every day. The ones that make or break the trustworthiness and usefulness of an organization.

I believe if you do good, quality work, communicate well and invest in an environment that people want to be a part of, all the rest will fall into place. That’s the goal anyway.
