21st Century New Media began life as 21st Century Design in the mid 90's, designing and building websites for businesses of all shapes and sizes. In the natural course of time, web design became web development, and with the addition of online marketing the business expanded into a fully fledged digital agency, incorporating as 21st Century New Media Ltd in March 2000.
Established at Elstree Film Studios for almost a decade, the company segued into delivering training courses in 2003, securing contracts with the BBC, CH4, CH5 and ITN amongst others. In 2008 we unveiled our very own purpose built training training studio in St Albans, which has subequently grown into a recording studio and film facility, with arts production and training as it's primary goal.
Our training courses and services have been popular with corporates and small businesses alike. Here are a few customer comments...
