We celebrated our third birthday on February 1, and we can hardly believe it’s only been three years. When we started Uppercut, we had a specific vision and plan, with a close-knit team who had already been working together for years.

A lot has changed — some of it wonderful and some of it really difficult. Which is why, at this point, we wanted to take a moment to look at what we’ve accomplished in that time: We’ve built over 50 websites and more than 20 apps, designed 25 logos, and launched four ventures. And we’re pretty excited about what the next years will bring. So happy birthday to us, and thanks to everyone who has been part of our story. We couldn’t have done it without you.
