For years, Human Made has focused on delivering powerful digital solutions for enterprise and transforming the way people interact with some of the most visited websites in the world. We’ve remained passionate about open source tools: building and contributing towards them and using them to drive business value for our clients.

We’re really delighted to be recognised and honoured with this award.

Our time in the industry has seen us accumulate over 470 years of WordPress experience, so it’s a huge honour to be recognised with this award. Especially as we share the space with a number of companies that we admire and respect.

A year worth celebrating

2018 was a year worth celebrating, with healthy growth in the company and exciting changes ahead. We welcomed 12 new people to the team across several departments, and celebrated growth in Japan.

We participated in and contributed to a number of events, notably the Newsroom Summit at WAN-IFRA and WordCamp Europe 2018, the largest WordPress conference in the world. As WordPress.com VIP partners, we’ve also worked with WordPress.com VIP to organise and present at Big WP, in London and New York respectively.

Our continued involvement with and contribution to the REST API saw us re-release our previously titled, ‘Talking to 28% of the web’. This time we featured case studies from TechCrunch, ustwo, NPM, and Fairfax Media, and re-published ‘Headless WordPress: The Future CMS’.

We’ve also been busy pushing the boundary of what’s possible with WordPress, and have shared Our React Tools for WordPress, as well as the more recent, Hot Module Replacement for Gutenberg Blocks.

We celebrated our open policies with the release of our Client Handbook, demonstrating how we work and how we build some of the world’s most recognised websites on WordPress. We also open sourced our Human Made Company Handbook, in an effort to share some of the things we’d learned building a distributed company with 60+ people.

On top of this, we’re working with clients across the globe helping them transform their newsrooms with modern tools and adopt open principles, just to list a few!
