Web design changes: See TBH Creative over the years

In celebration of our ten year anniversary earlier this year (and to play on Kayleigh's recent post about how much web design has changed), we thought it would be fun to take a look at TBH Creative over the years.

It is amazing how much web design and development have evolved and improved in a short period. The technology and design/usability continues to get better and better. The power of Internet inbound marketing has sky rocketed, and we are glad to be a part of it. In 2004, a few familiar websites called Facebook and Flickr were just starting out too. Podcasting began that year, and iTunes had only been around since the previous year. These days, 42.3% of the world's population uses the web.

Just as websites respond, adapt, and connect to the needs and expectations of users, brands also must focus on staying relevant by listening to their customers and anticipating their needs and wants.

Some companies think that the safest thing to do with a brand is to let it be. But at TBH Creative, we believe in active branding. If you don't speak for your brand, someone else will, which is why it's been important for TBH Creative to give its brand a voice.

While your business story may not necessarily be a page-turner, it does have something that all good stories have: the ability to establish an emotional connection. When you're writing for your website, step back and consider this:

Why should all web developers be using version control?

It's all too easy to accidentally delete or overwrite an important file. If you're a web developer dealing with a large amount of files on a daily basis, this can be a significant problem, especially if you're working as a team. One way to make file management easier and more secure is to use version control.

What is version control?

Version control is essentially tracking revisions made to a file or a set of files. A version control system (VCS) allows you to keep a history of changes made, restore older versions of a file, sync files between team members, and more. This makes it easy to fix mistakes like overwriting or deleting files, and helps to keep files up-to-date.
