It’s hard to believe that 12 months have passed since I wrote our last Section 101 Year-End Blog. So much has happened, yet at the same time, it seems like it was just December 2013. One thing that has remained the same is that once again we’re ending on a high note! It has been another fantastic year of growth and development for Section 101, as we’ve launched different verticals, a brand new design agency and a couple of fantastic partnerships.
It goes without saying that we couldn’t do it without you: our clients, who have supported us and sang our praises, the people we meet at the many conferences we attend throughout the year, the friends who tell all their friends how terrific their Section 101 website looks and even the fine folks who just want to keep in touch and get our newsletters. We’re so happy to be associated with each and every one of you.
Below you will find our highlights of the year and a special Spotify Holiday Playlist from our staff (plug: Tracks 1 – 10 are all Section 101 clients!)
