field15 was founded in 1998, when many companies were still just starting to think about going online. Back then, a lot of small- and medium-sized businesses didn’t know what steps to take to get themselves on the web, and we saw a real need for somebody to step in and help out. Over the years, our client roster has grown to include the federal and local governments, national and international non-profit organizations, and enterprise class corporations. And, along with our clients, the types of services we offer have also changed to include web-, mobile-, and desktop-based applications, database design and management, data warehousing, and generalized IT consulting, research, and support services.
Today, what truly sets field15 apart from other digital service providers is our absolute adherence to honesty and respect for our clients and their goals. If we believe that we aren't the right people for your job, we'll tell you up front so that you're not wasting your time or being sold the wrong solution for your problem. And if we do start working together, you'll see that there are no hidden costs or fees in our estimates and that we’ll never try to upsell or lead you down the wrong path just to make a sale. By hiring field15, you can be sure that you're working with people who have only your best interests at heart.
field15 is a privately held Brooklyn, NY-based company that is co-owned by Dave and Catharine Rankin (a husband and wife team) and is supported by a group of expert visual artists, software developers, network engineers, and IT strategists.
Catharine is both a co-owner of and Creative Director at field15, managing the artistic side of our work. She's been involved with publishing and the web since 1994, and over the years, she's been a reporter, writer, editor, production editor, web liasion, web designer, and creative director.
Outside of work, Catharine daydreams about travel and is constantly coming up with new places to visit. So far, she's been to 46 states, 7 Canadian provinces, and the United Kingdom, and she's hoping to add a new country to the list this year (actually, she hopes that every year...). She also holds dual citizenship from the U.S. and Canada.
