For just a moment, think about technology; think about the countless innovative devices, and the information available at our fingertips. Now think back ten years – the contrast is remarkable. In today’s fast-paced world it’s a milestone when a business stays relevant and influential for a decade, and Dallas’ own Bottle Rocket has achieved just that and much more.
“Bottle Rocket has been there since the beginning – literally. The company was started the day after Steve Jobs announced that he would open the Apple App store to third-party developers,” states a recent press release. “And for the last ten years, Bottle Rocket has been defining, designing, and developing mobile and connected device experiences for many of the world’s most discriminating brands.” Notable clients include Southwest Airlines, Chick-fil-A, Coca-Cola, as well as Starwood Hotels and Resorts.
So, how do you celebrate when you’re already revered by Apple (four Apple Hall of Fame Awards) and Google (Agency Developer Certification every year since the certification came into existence)? How do you adequately acknowledge such an enormous success? You take it back to the very beginning – you pay tribute to the building blocks that put you on the map.
“To celebrate this momentous milestone, the company’s founder and CEO, Calvin Carter, brought back many of the company’s firsts. His first creative partner. His first client. His first developer.”
It’s been ten years since its inception, and every twist and turn helped shape the company Bottle Rocket is today. With record growth and the procurement of some of the most progressive engagements in the company’s history, Carter believes they’re still only at the beginning, and every step along the way – past, present and future – remains vital.
“Ten may not seem like much, but in the world of mobile and application development, ten years is an eternity.”
