COO, Luigi Amante, commented: "In 2003, four years after we started The Design People Inc. in Los Angeles, We made a strategic move to open a production office overseas. The Philippines was a natural choice for us. The raw creative talent in Manila combined with the fact that two of the three owners including myself are Filipino made the decision easy". "We are very grateful to our customers and team members who helped get us here and are very proud of this accomplishment."
Opened with just five people, the Design People office in Manila core team has steadily grown into a fully staffed production team of over 100 trained web designers, web consultants and programmers. Currently supporting over 60 U.S.-based project managers, web strategists and salespeople, the office enabled The Design People to become profitable.
With dedicated fiber optic Internet connections, the Design People, today,has expanded its Manila operations to a fully outfitted production office and contact center. Including company intranet,internal blogs, customer relationship management (CRM) system, high definition video conferencing for meetings, instant messaging and VOIP, the company has also invested heavily in communication technology.
Plans have also begun on a special awards contest and annual event to recognize the work of Filipino web designers organized by The Design People, Inc. to help celebrate its fifth year in Manila. We anticipate hundreds of entries for categories including Best of the Web 2008 and many more. Profits from the event will go to charity.
