since-2005Choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.

That’s it, the recipe for career success and satisfaction that has motivated millions on inspirational posters and encouraging note cards. It’s been the topic of keynote speakers at graduation ceremonies and other motivational speakers; find a job you’re passionate about and your life will turn into one big tropical vacation…(insert record scratch sound effect here). Ok, cynicism aside, it’s an encouraging sentiment and aligning of our passions and interests with how we make a living is what most of us hope for. When I look back on my 15 years as web designer and 10 years since starting D4, I recall a long list of creative and challenging marketing projects. Goals that through the hard work and drive of passionate and talented people became realities. I recall relationships fostered and the successes attained. I’ve learned that in order to succeed as a web design and marketing company you have to be driven, passionate, and able to evolve with the technology you work with. Developing relationships of trust, exceeding expectations and being honest in everything is imperative. Treating others as you’d like to be treated is truly “the golden rule.” We’re a modest company; the praise we seek is that of our clients. It’s them who are our biggest fans and it’s them that we try hardest to impress. We thank those clients of ours who’ve been with us since the beginning (you know who you are) and those that continue to give us a shot at earning their business. We pledge to keep improving; to continue to develop the skills and intelligence that sets us apart from the rest. We promise to keep the same business values and integrity that has taken us this far. Here’s to the future of D4 and continuing with the job we love. Cheers. – J. Dunlap
