Aslam Najeebdeen Founded in 2010 from a humble home, Frontcube has become a formidable force to reckon with in the techsphere in Sri Lanka with its highly successful and widely profitable designs for clients ranging from Al-Jazeera, Microsoft to successful Silicon Valley Start-ups.

FrontCube also marks a momentous fifth anniversary today. “Although five years may not be a long time, it is a major milestone for us, because we are proud to have done this completely on our own and feel blessed of having achieved as much as we did in such a short time,” said Aslam Najeebdeen founder of FrontCube. “Innovation is the cornerstone of every business aspect and together as a team we’ve built a formidable team with creative solutions that are unrivalled.”

The tech start-up firm was the driving force behind media giant Al-Jazeera STREAM, a daily television program on Al-Jazeera. Branded as a web community with a Global TV Show, the STREAM taps into the extraordinary potential of social media to disseminate news. FrontCube helped The Stream grow their traffic by 130% in 2012 by implementing a responsive design.

The company is also working closely with AJ+ (Al-Jazeera Plus) team from the beta phase to design and build an engaging mobile and web user experience.The current website which is the 4th redesign was completed in March last year. The first design created big buzz in the Twittersphare. To-date, Al-Jazeera frequently sources the services of FrontCube for their internal Research & Development as well as web experience projects.

“Aslam is a wonderful anomaly,” says Jorge Soto, Sales Team Lead at Twitter. “He has a tremendous amount of passion for his craft and is always hungry to learn more. I am honored to be partnering with such a great and talented individual. There is no doubt that he will continue to emerge as one of technology’s future leaders.”
