What impression did you get about TLD?
The impression I got from TLD is that of a small tightly connected team of professionals, who share a passion for the design and web development industry. The intimate environment gives the office a home/family feel which made a very comfortable working atmosphere. I felt like part of the team during my time at TLD.

The refreshing and engaging relationship between the team was a very pleasant surprise which I think added to the enjoyment of my day.
