What was the inspiration for the site? The primary inspiration for the design of our website was based around structuring our digital products clearly and efficiently.

When did you launch the site? The website was launched with its current features in June 2015.

What are your greatest challenges? One of our great challenges has been to standardise our services as products and to clearly define what exactly it is that we offer as well as creating a user-friendly platform for our potential clients.

What's your background? MBJ is a London-based mobile app and website development agency specialised in the design and architecture of digital products. We began our entrepreneurial journey in 2011 and have rapidly grown from a team of 2 to our current team of 28.

Who do you admire in business? Steve Jobs was a quintessential example of a strong-minded businessperson and an admirable figure for any entrepreneur.

Please recommend a really useful website that helps you promote or run your business. Sketch is an incredibly useful app that has become an essential tool for our team of in-house UI/UX designers. Moz is another extremely beneficial site that allows us to thoroughly manage our SEO and social media clients.

What is the best piece of business advice you've been given? Don’t stretch yourself too thin and just focus on one thing at a time.

What is your motto? A keen eye for detail can make all the difference.

Where do you see the business going from here? MBJ is currently in the process of opening a new development office in Prague, Czech Republic as well as sales offices in several U.S. cities including NYC, Miami, and Chicago early next year.

Where did you hear about the GWG Awards? We heard about the GWG Awards through our colleagues at Canalot Studios, Ask-the-Boss.
