Bless her and all who sail in her

By Trampoline Systems | Thursday, October 12th, 2006

Much as a growing child needs a new set of clothes from time to time, so the replacement of one website by another marks the evolution of a growing company. Trampoline’s first site was cobbled together with leftover bits of the user interface from our initial product. It served its purpose for a couple of years, with extra pages tacked on here and there, but by summer 2005 it was becoming a bit of an embarassment.

As every software or web development company knows, finding time to work on your own site is next to impossible; it always, but always, gets put off because there’s something more pressing. So in September 2005 we simply decided one morning that by the time we left that evening we would have a new website, and thus was born Trampoline’s second site. It was beautifully simple, just a single page bringing together all the key information. But a year on it was clear we needed to communicate more and it was time for a third site.

This time it’s happened with surprisingly little effort. Mike’s very first design template got everyone’s approval. There was a brief false start with MovableType but the attractions of dynamic publishing led us to try Symphony21. The main content was hacked together yesterday afternoon.

And now, here it is.

    Congratulations on you new identity/website and the bright future you have before you. You will change the world!!

  2. Congratulations on the new site. It is a ray of sunshine in the KM landscape. Your approach ‘so refreshingly obvious it seems radical’ has much to offer. Whilst your offices may be an old almshouse the future is bright.

    I love the new site, Charles! All the best to you and the team :-)

  4. Thanks for your good wishes Wiz, Richard and Rob. We’re appreciating the extra channels for communication provided by the new website and the feedback from visitors has been very positive. Kudos to Mr Stenhouse!
