Tim Berners-Lee

Computer Scientist

Ok, where would we all be without Tim Berners-Lee? Not a lot of people know the name or would recognize him in a photo but he is largely responsible for inventing the World Wide Web. Back in 1989 he implemented the first successful communication between a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) client and server via the Internet sometime around mid-November of that same year. Look how the web changed the world, the world’s knowledge a click away, connecting people through social media, online commerce and on and on. I started my second design company in 1993 and interactive design was part of the original business plan along with traditional services that included branding, advertising, packaging etc. Back then there weren’t that many companies offering web design so things really took off. I still design web sites as well as mobile apps for clients.
