Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. If you're hiring someone to create an online version of your print brochure, you're wasting your money. Just like the computer is far more valuable than its original application as a calculator, the web can do so much more than host images and text. Hire someone who gets that and will leverage the medium to give you as much as possible.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. In very few instances have we found the best solution for a client to be someone else's pre-built solution. We also find that a website devoid of engaging content won't be enough to create the change our clients are seeking. For these reasons Dijt builds intuitive websites designed specifically for clients and their needs, creates the engaging and persuasive text/image/video content that goes within these sites, and helps generate the traffic necessary to bring about real change.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. Our work is design-oriented, not by the narrow notion of simply making something look good, but by a truer definition of creating elegant solutions for clearly understood problems. We help with both the understanding and the creating.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. We love the opportunity to marry the skillsets of talented people with complex and important problems. We also take pleasure in the joy of building things.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. There are firms that will low-bid a project and stop development at some point where it is no longer profitable to them. There are others who will high-bid a project and do the same. We finish every project we start. We deliver on our promises and can provide references to clients who will attest to that.
Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?
A. The notion of a webpage is going to disappear and people are going to begin to understand the web as a pipeline of interactivity that has the potential to reach beyond our desktop or our pocket. We're preparing for a future where our interactions in the physical world are more naturally and contextually augmented by the digital.
