24 years and working with hundreds of clients has shown us that life is too short for pointless meetings, business jargon, and working with people you don’t like. With that in mind, we only take on projects where we feel we can create something amazing, and will produce results.
Jeannie worked for one of the first web design agencies in the US as an intern while at university, and after graduation got a job as a glorified pimp for consulting agencies (and hated every minute of it). In 1998 she had enough of corporate America, and opened Rare Form from her home in Michigan and started making websites.
On December 26, 2001 Jeannie moved to England, wait for it, because she had a dream. She bounced around the country for a year making websites for Oracle, PeopleSoft, photographers, and small businesses. But just as she was ready to go back to Michigan she met Joss, a programmer (and actual genius). They hit it off, decided to combine forces and reopen Rare Form in Oxford.
For 24 years we have curated a small but mighty team, and have kept it that way on purpose. Yes, we could have expanded, but we are creatives first, and money isn’t our driving factor. We have always wanted to produce beautiful, bleeding edge products that actually work. The proof is in the success of our clients. When they succeed, we win. And we reallyyyyy love to win. If you would like us to be a part of your story, get in touch, we’d love to work with you (but only if you’re awesome).
