Your Website Security: Who’s Hacking You?

understanding the importance of website security and why hackers attack

A Createful New Year

It’s 2017 and we are very excited to start off this new year. 2016 saw a lot go down that people weren’t too happy about, and many have even branded it “the worst year ever”. However at Createful we had a pretty fantastic year: Our team grew; we had great success in our Christmas Campaign “Three French Hens”; “Geoff the Wizard” was born; we were lucky enough to work with some exciting new clients and startups; we had some immensely talented interns come through our doors, and, naturally, we had a lot of cake!

Cake is a huge part of Createful culture and always will be. We have regular ‘Bake Off’ events and a treat table in the middle of our office.
