If you’ve stopped by our “Meet the Team” page recently, you have probably noticed several new faces popping up in those fun little circles. Since we last shared a blog post about our new team members, Web Talent has welcomed eight fresh faces to help serve our continually growing client base. I won’t say Web Talent is “growing like a weed” because I never cared for weeds much. But I WILL say we are growing like an agency that now requires two coffee machines and a French press to keep up with our java consumption.

Learn a bit about our newest coffee drinkers here!
