Introducing APIS interactive communications

Mon, 01/09/2012 - 07:00 -- by Robin Eldred

As of January 1, 2012, Apis Design is now APIS interactive communications.

What's changed at APIS?

Along with a slight re-touch to our logo and a new website, we are growing the carefully nurtured services that we offer, and how we offer them.
