|Celebrating 6 years!|
|Date posted: Wed, 8th Jan 2014 5:11 pm|
Media Mechanic is celebrating 6 years in business!
Over the last six years, we have grown from a one man operation in a basement studio (in Michigan), to our current 9 man (and growing) team located in our comfy offices in beautiful Portland Oregon.
We have gained hundreds of clients, produced hundreds of websites and mobile apps, and completed successful projects for such big names as Harley Davidson, CAT and OHSU - all while still keeping a strong focus on working with local businesses and start ups.
We've been noticed: Media Mechanic has been mentioned in the Huffington Post, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Magazine and the Oregonian.
Meanwhile, we have produced a critically acclaimed children's app selected by Google's staff as a top featured app for tablets, which has sold tens of thousands of copies to schools and parents acround the world.
In 2014, we will finally be rolling out our long awaited new website (which is nearly complete), launching our new Gearbox mobile app system (also nearly complete) and dramatically expand Kids Maps for Android (complete and pending release). We also have several new large development contracts we are excited to be apart of that will produce some of the most technologically challenging work we have ever done. 2014 will be a fantastic year for Media Mechanic, and we look forward to continuing to work with you all!
Thanks for your continued support!
The Media Mechanic Team. ...

Hello everyone! We just wanted to give visitors a heads up. After 5 1/2 years in business, and a design that was created 6 years ago, Media Mechanic will finally be re-designing it's corporate website. It has served us well (and much longer than antipicated), but it is time for something new. During construction, we will constinue to update the existing site, but probably less frequently. To our existing clients: thanks for your recent feedback as to what you would like to see in the new client only areas. We will be attempting to incorporate as many suggested items as we can.
Please be patient as we start to knock down a few walls! Thanks!...
The Media Mechanic team.
