New Site Launch – Brookwood Covenant Church!

Author: admin, Posted On: February 12th, 2012, In: Creative, Web Design

We’re excited today to officially launch the new website for Brookwood Covenant Church (BCC) in Topeka, KS.   Congrats, y’all!

 

This one is extra special for me and the Dude, as it was at BCC that we first met… I was a rookie youth director, and Dude was this budding superstar-wiseacre-student with whom I formed a most indelible bond.  We made a ton of great memories back in the day, largely thanks to the love and support of the good folks at BCC.

 

Today’s launch marks somewhat of a “homecoming” for us, as we get to jump back into the middle of this cool project with wonderful people who have woven themselves into the tapestry of our lives from the word go.  In addition to giving us the opportunity to design the new website, the Brookwood Covenant leadership team has asked us to provide creative direction for several cool new projects this year.  We couldn’t be more excited!

*For a quick guided tour of the site (and to be entered to win some great prizes, including a Kindle, Dinner, and Movie Tickets), check out the Brookwood Covenant Church Scavenger Hunt.

The Tablet is Changing Everything

Author: admin, Posted On: December 10th, 2011, In: Tech, Web Design

Remember the cool interactive UI imagined in “Minority Report”?  Well, guess what?  It’s already here, and although it won’t become a household staple for many, many years yet, there’s no denying that it’s coming, and that we need to be prepared for it.   Cut to the present, and consider that while Apple’s iPad has clearly become the front-runner in the space, the growing popularity of the “tablet” is forcing designers to think very differently about how they architect for the web.  And it’s amazing how quickly everything is changing.

What’s In a Name?

Author: admin, Posted On: December 1st, 2011, In: LA

Pretty dramatic picture, wouldn’t you say? Well, at least it is to us. This is an actual picture of the actual bridge (that did not have an actual roaring tornado in the background) from whence we took our name.

 

It was around 1991 or so. We were driving the Kansas Turnpike from Lawrence back to Topeka when we were literally struck by it. We’d driven under that confounded bridge possibly hundreds of times…but this time…we BOTH saw it at the SAME TIME: The Lecompton Alternate. Continue Reading

What Your Mother Never Told You About Starting an Online Store

Author: admin, Posted On: December 1st, 2011, In: Web Design

Guest contributor: Sher Bailey, Likefox

 

I remember well the spring I turned six years old. It was about the same time my Dad bought my Mother a brand new Singer sewing machine. You may conclude from that statement that my Mother was a seamstress, or at the very least, someone who had a talent with needle and thread.

 

You would be wrong, my friend. The reality was that Mother believed if only she had a sewing machine, she could unleash her inner-designer and save money by churning out everything from drapes to tablecloths to ridiculously fashionable clothing for her young (helpless) daughter.

 

Cut to me going to school every day for a month in triangle-shaped tops made exclusively from kitchen towels. Continue Reading

10 Ways to Proactively Engage Customers

Author: admin, Posted On: November 30th, 2011, In: Customers

So you’re a new business owner – congratulations!  You’ve thrust yourself into the unenviable position of being the new kid on the block amongst the competition, and some or all of those companies may have been doing for a long, long time what you’ve now popped on the scene to do.  Your desire is to do what you do better than all the rest, and in so doing, establish your identity in the marketplace.

 

So how do you accomplish the task of breaking through? Two important values to get radar-lock on that can truly differentiate you from the rest of the pack are “Quality” and “Service.” Especially if there are already two or more of you vying to gain a foothold in the local space, learning to be proactive in your approach to quality customer service and support will get you farther – faster – than just about any other strategy.

The Future of Web Design

Author: admin, Posted On: November 27th, 2011, In: Web Design

The good news is that you don’t have to wait for it – it’s here already, and is making quite a splash. It’s a little thing called HTML5, and, lashed together with it’s dynamic duo sidekick CSS3, it’s looking to become the new “standard” upon which websites and mobile applications will be built in the years ahead.

 

We know, we know…you’re still trying to recover from the shocking news that Adobe will no longer support Flash for mobile devices. Maybe you’re scratching your head over why yet another shift in standards is occurring when XHTML seemed so good. Well, here are five reasons why you may want to take a serious look at committing your next web project to HTML5. Continue Reading

In this recent TEDx Talk, tech investor Roger McNamee breaks out six intriguing signs that have led him to believe that “a major new technology cycle is beginning.”

 

  1. Windows is Dying
  2. Index search has peaked (sorry, Google)
  3. Apps beat Web
  4. HTML5 changes it all
  5. Tablets win big
  6. Social platforms set

Your Restaurant Site Just Made Me Nauseous

Author: admin, Posted On: November 22nd, 2011, In: Web Design

We like food. A lot. And it shouldn’t surprise you that we always check out the sites of the places we frequent. It’s just a habit. Don’t judge.

 

Now, we’re not really sure how it happened that apparently all the restaurants and bars in the world got together and formed a union specifying that their establishments could best be served by outrageous Flash-based websites that make trying to find a simple location or a menu an exercise in futility.

 

Seriously, people…what is WITH this niche? We believe it’s time to stop the “Flashy” madness. Continue Reading

Friends Don’t Let Cousins Design their Website

Author: admin, Posted On: November 22nd, 2011, In: Web Design

So you’ve built a new business and everything you read confirms your hunch that you must have a web presence to “make it.” Because you neglected taking those computer science classes as an undergrad, you haven’t a clue about how to get that sweet company website up and thrust forth into the consciousness of a public hungry to adore you.

 

Enter your cousin Alex.  Though he may be far from a wunderkind, Alex has demonstrated his ability to make pretty passable websites for his friends and family. Best part is that he works fast and is super cheap. As you currently find yourself out of budget and already way behind schedule, Alex looks on paper to be your very best option.  And so, off you go, with nothing to lose and everything to gain.
