The anchoring of OptArt’s development direction, already connected with WordPress CMS in most of the orders, was sponsoring the first Polish branch WordCamp meeting in Łódź and 2 lectures by Marcin Biegun. XII
Another significant moment in the history of OptArt was putting into use the “Zatrzymaj Emocje” website, which was created by the order of the Varsovian AdKing agency – a part of ArboMedia Group. A stable order supply allowed further progress of the company and expanding its competence. In September, we started to cooperate with the Varsovian agency Infinee. Our partnership has lasted to this day and along the way we upgraded our abilities with working on the MVC architecture, creating graphic design projects based on prepared pages and taking part in executing the projects of 10 000 work hours.

Coding speed WordPress Custom development plus 3 workersDue to a vast number of regular orders related to outsourcing services for huge interactive agencies in Poland, the team was enhanced by new workers: Grzegorz Kaczmarski, Maciek Kopeć and Konrad Dzwinel. VI
In 2010, OptArt’s activity began to pick up. The agency started to develop rapidly. The breakthrough for OptArt was implementing a new graphic design project for AZ.pl. It was the first such large project – it consisted of over 100 pages and allowed the company to develop in new fields. OptArt’s workers learned to work through huge projects, handle version control systems and co-exist as parts of a big team of programmers. 2010
minus 1 workerThe next year of OptArt’s activity was marked by individual clients and small companies service. The team was particularly busy with creating showcase websites. We also gladly execute such orders nowadays. It was also the year of the first “startup” attempt within OptArt, which ultimately led to the creation of the https://wspinacze.pl portal. However, it is not an episode of the company’s activity that its owners are really proud of. The portal did not gain much popularity. At long last, it was also the year of changes in the board. Wiktor decided to start a new business of a completely different branch. From then on, Marcin has been fully in charge of setting direction of OptArt’s development. 2009
Estetyka plus 1 workerMarcin and Wiktor soon discovered that some customers do not care (horror of horrors!) about the way a website was written. What is really important for them is how it looks like and they desire more comprehensive maintenance. In that time, Sebastian Profic received the first graphic design orders – projects and logotypes. Before long, Sebastian became a full-time OptArt worker. 2008
Clean code plus 1 workerIt soon turned out that creating websites with great attention to offer quality code is not actually art for art’s sake. In the newer versions of Google algorithms this factor was playing a more and more major role. The number of OptArt’s clients was increasing. A new worker joined the team – Szymon, as a coder. 2007
Positive energyIt all began in 2007, when Marcin and Wiktor, freelance coders, after they had undergone an internship in the Cracow-based NetArt agency, decided to change the Internet and started to create clean, semantic websites… The strong feeling of two young and zealous entrepreneurs that what they did was a specific kind of art, resulted in the name of a new Cracovian agency – OptArt. 2007
