I consider anything Active Discovery Designs mine and have an agreement about that, but I am no more associated with ActiveDiscovery, Inc., so I am looking under which name I will continue my services.

Please note I am not associated in any way anymore with ActiveDiscovery, Inc. and vice versa, but (of course) I will continue serving existing and new clients, for now as a freelance (full stack) web developer.

Contact details are still the same, so you can just go the contact page if you want to contact me.

History of Active Discovery Designs

How it all started

The idea of Active Discovery Designs begins with one of the founders, Lee, needing a websites for his Travel and Tour company (see and his partner Guus wanting to develop websites that would be resolution independent (see <reference to resizing>) to make them 'future proof'.

Next to this need and this idea there was a request from some close friend needing support with her website, which was the final 'push' to start a web development company related to the already existing tour company.

'Resizing' period

So with the idea of resolution independent websites, internally called 'resizing websites', and one internal and one external customer, Active Discovery Designs was born. First home based at the end of 2004, but later on moving to the Waterside Building in Julio Pacana Street, Cagayan de Oro City.

The moving to 'Waterside' included hiring a secretary, a lay-out artist and a programmer as these were the expertises needed for the starting company. Being a 'design' company, Active Discovery Designs also focussed (and still focusses) on non-web related designs like flyers and brochures.
