A bit more history.

1998 seems like decades ago. That’s because it was! It seems as though that’s when the internet was born. Which it wasn’t, but in the grand scheme of the digital age it’s fairly close. For our amusement, below is a timeline of the history of McLean Multimedia / Limelight Design Studios, inline with the technological advances that took place over the decades. Enjoy!

“What most impressed me was the level of thought that went into the design process. Before any design work had begun Helen got a complete understanding of my business and my target market. This enabled me to present myself as a brand new business exactly how I wanted. I highly recommend McLean Multimedia.” Anna Siljama Hypnotherapy
