I’m so excited to announce that my tiny design shop, Height & Hands is joining forces with Boston Web Studio and Booyant, two of the best web development shops in the Boston area. Together, we are The Outfit, a full-service design and development powerhouse.
Two years ago, when we started Height & Hands, Amy and I worked from home which meant that any chance to get out of the house was a welcome event. We started frequenting Build Guild where we met, and eventually made friends with, Marc, Michael and Johannes. Shortly thereafter, we started coworking out of the BWS/Booyant office in Beverly once a month or so. We would talk shop, share tips and tricks about software and wait for Marc or Amy to spill something on themselves. Sometime this past February, we began to seriously discuss what a three-company merger would look like.
As H&H, we could really only take on a few small projects at a time and we were a bit limited in our ability to offer a truly complete range of services. Once we started talking with the other guys, we realized that their hardcore development skills were the perfect compliment to our design expertise. Bringing everything together under one roof would allow us to tackle bigger projects, focus on our individual strengths and work as an integrated team.
I consider myself lucky to have found such extremely talented and high character people who have similar approaches to business, work and life.
Together, we comprise a team with a broad and deep skill-set that are obsessive about working together to make each project as great as possible. We’re already working on some amazing new projects and are continuing to develop products of our own. I couldn’t be more excited.
