Web Design Background

What's The Story

/ Our History

The story starts around 15 years ago when brothers Kirk & Jordan started helping local businesses develop their websites & market themselves online.

Let's start at the very beginning. Kirk and Jordan (yes they are brothers) created their first website together in 1999. Who was it for you to ask? That's not important but how long ago it was is the important thing. When agencies say they are experienced we really mean it. Fast forward to 2014 Kirk and Jordan decided to start KIJO, a combination of their names with the ideals of creating an agency which could combine amazing design with a focus on results. Perhaps you have heard this before but the combination of their two personalities infused into the agency makes this hardwired into KIJOs DNA.

/ Our Culture

It sounds cliche but we believe in work hard and play hard.

You’ve probably heard it a lot, but as a team we really do believe in working hard and playing hard. There is no point in working all the time to never enjoy yourself. But, then it also makes no sense to never really be working or making a difference… We think it’s best when there’s a balance between the two. As a remote team, we like to meet up throughout the year and have a good old celebration of the hard graft we’ve put in.
