A Cobbler’s Children Get New Shoes

McGill Buckley Gets A New Website, Finally.

For much longer than we dare to ponder or frankly admit, we at McGill Buckley have been a 21st-century illustration of that old saying about cobblers and their children lacking footwear. In our case, the old saying would go something like the web design company has a really old website. And, a brand identity in need of refreshing for the digital age.

Ironically (but perhaps not) in the time we have been talking about the ever-escalating urgency of redoing our own website, we have produced a plethora of new websites for clients, friends and even some particularly demanding family members. You can find much of that work in our portfolio.

We have also created a bunch of additional marketing, branding, design and advertising projects for others. We volunteered for our favourite causes. We took a trip or two, maybe three. We watched the latest seasons of This is Us. We commiserated about our beloved Ottawa Senators.

So, we’ve been busy. Or recuperating. Or procrastinating. But even those excuses and distractions became so very tired as we entered the last half of this year. So in the last couple of months, we became obsessed with redoing our own website and the results of that unbridled zeal are now before your eyes. We hope you like the way it looks and works. We also hope you take the time learn a little more about what we do, who we've done it for and what makes us tick and tock.

Thank you, Garry Brownrigg and the terrific team at QuickSilk. We couldn't have done it without you!
