Yes, it’s hard to believe, but Akira Studio has been in business for 10 years this Friday 19 February.
To celebrate, we’ve been posting a countdown of Amazing Akira Facts on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/akirastudio/).
We’ll be having some cake and fizz in the office on Friday, so if you’d like to pop in and say hi, you’re very welcome.
Best of all, we have a very special deal just for the day itself. Like our Facebook page now, as we’ll be posting details at 10am on Friday morning.
10 years of web design for everyone
When Tony Scott first moved his website design studio from the UK to Canada, his dream was to create well designed websites that worked brilliantly for all sizes of business, from solo entrepreneurs to major organisations.
Ten years on, Akira Studio is a real success story, with over 300 websites designed, built and hosted for clients in Canada and the UK.
That’s impressive for a business that started on a kitchen table in Portsmouth UK and moved almost 6000kms to a basement in Ingersoll. Tony believes this success is down to a blend of hard work and the friendly welcome he received when he first arrived.
“Everyone I met here genuinely wanted to help me, and pointed me towards opportunities I’d never have found on my own. Akira’s success is very much shared with my local business community, and the Canadian love of enterprise. I am very proud to now be a naturalized Canadian citizen, and for Akira Studio to be a Canadian company that works right across North America and Europe.”
Akira Studio have built mobile-friendly websites for a wide variety of Ontario-based businesses and organizations, including: Ontario By Bike, Advanced Medical Group, Johnstone Homes, Southwest Fire Academy, The Waterfront Regeneration Trust, ERTHCorp, Tillsonburg and Haldimand County Hydro, and the Town of Ingersoll.
Working with small businesses and organisations also gives us the chance for to give something back to the community that welcomed Akira. As Tony says:
“Many small businesses know they need a website that works on mobile devices, but are afraid it’s just beyond their budget or ability. Akira Studio make the whole process painless and cost-effective by designing websites that work beautifully on any mobile device, and hosting them here in their country of origin.”
