Celebrating 10 years of BaseKit

We kick off our celebrations for the 10-year anniversary of BaseKit, with photos charting our progress since 2008 and a few words from CEO and co-founder Simon Best.

Do you remember the 2008 Summer Olympics? Our founders definitely don’t – they were busy setting up a little sitebuilding business in Chepstow. Fast forward ten years and they’ve managed to catch the two Summer Olympics since then, moved to a shiny new office in the heart of Bristol, and grown the team to almost 50 people.

This year, we’ve already celebrated the release of BaseKit 10, our most versatile and mobile product yet, and we’ve just launched a brand new website. As with any venture, there have been highs and lows, but we’re proud to say that the highs have far outnumbered the lows, and we can’t wait to see what the future brings!

Over the next few weeks, we’re going to be celebrating this anniversary – and all our achievements over the past decade – in style, from a team day out and party in the sun to reminiscences and lessons learned from our CEO and co-founder, Simon Best. Stay tuned to see what we’ve got in store – and in the meantime, here are a few photos charting our progress from humble beginnings to thriving company.

From this tiny office in Chepstow…
…to this office in Bristol
From intense desk tennis competitions…
…to intense table tennis competitions
From a platform created for designers…
… to a solution created for everyone
And from this celebration of our first enterprise partnership…
…to this celebration of our latest product release

We’ve come a long way! Thank you so much to everyone who’s helped us get to where we are now – it means the world. Simon’s summed it up in advance of a longer post later in the month: “We’re really excited to be nearing our ten year anniversary, It’s been a hell of a ride – we’ve built a fantastic team and can’t thank our loyal partners enough for choosing us and growing with us over the years.”
