Faber Online Publishing originated in 1996 when I and Maaike de Jong, built our first website together. We proved to be an ideal combination because of our different backgrounds (information science and advertising) but overlapping interests.
After our first website we soon made our first commercial website, still in the days when only few companies had ever heard of the Internet. We both saw the opportunities our combined forces gave us and started dreaming about starting our own official business.
On Januari 1st, 1998, in Heerenveen, this became a reality and Faber Online Publishing was born. The same year we got our first major client. We continuously tried to improve our skills and tried not to be completely consumed by the Internet hype. We believe that after the hype is gone, there will be more competition between the design bureaus. In that market only those who can offer real quality can survive.
