After taking early retirement I joined Atlas Internet, a London based ISP, in the mid 1990s and worked as a web site designer in their Preston Lancashire office.
When Atlas decided to rationalise their business the Preston office was closed so two colleagues and I set up our own business, Ribble Web Design. One of our major client sites was the original BAA shopping site.
In 1997 Ribble Web Design was bought out by a local advertising firm and the three of us went our separate ways. It was at this point that Aird Web Design came into being, based originally in Samlesbury, Preston before moving to Skye in 2001.
So 17 years later we are still going strong.
