A Decade of reflexblue

This week marks our tenth birthday and what better cause for celebration. Birthday cake was enjoyed by everyone as we shared stories and laughed at how the company has changed since 2002.

As some of you may know, reflexblue began with a total of three employees and in the past ten years has evolved into a strong team of 13, not unlucky for us. Brian Nicolson remembers the promise made to him at the very beginning by the MD, that their first year of business would be different. He promised that they would be able to take breaks to watch the World Cup however, as Brian recalls, a total of fifteen minutes was all they ever saw of that World Cup. A visual of how busy the company has been from the offset, something we cannot complain about, however much we wanted to see Brazil beat Germany.

As we have grown, of course, so too has technology. Back in the beginning, before Internet, poor Scott had the task of sending the adverts.  At that time it took an hour to send a single one, something which is now instant. We would like to send a big thank you to George at Lateral Line, who allowed us to use his technology before we were up-to-date.

Another aspect of reflexblue that has changed in the last decade is where we work. Our first offices were at 3 Fitzroy Place, back when we had one office on a floor above the other. This was always awkward when someone would phone for an employee in the other office, but we couldn’t complain about the lack of exercise the job entailed. We would also like to thank our landlord Douglas Dixon & Son for helping us back then. Several years later we moved into where we are now, The Studio. Being an old recording studio was a great advantage for us as it was an empty shell and over the years we have gone to great efforts to make it our own.

Since 2002 we have come together countless times for birthdays, engagements, weddings and even christenings, marking changes in the lives of all of us here at reflexblue. We’ve had a fantastic ten years and we’re looking forward to the next, we’re sure it will come in no time.
