Dark-Mode-Trends-2020

Web design trends are changing faster than people change their underwear, and in 2020, the technical possibilities seem endless. As web design experts, we are ceaselessly called to experiment with new techniques and re-invent modern web interaction. On the other hand, other popular designs never go out of style, such as tried and true minimalism. 

The Inception of Dark Mode

There are many versions and rumours about the dark mode's history: Some claim it was Apple's invention, where naysayers insist it was Google. We tend to lean towards the simplistic theory of what made dark mode famous: the code.

Email-Marketing-2018

Is email marketing still even relevant? It’s 2018 and there’s no denying the prominence of social media channels and the saturation of advertising across all types of media – print, tv, radio, the web. With all of these advertising avenues to choose from it does make one wonder if the humble email still even works? The answer: Hell yeah!

Email marketing is one of the simplest and most cost-effective methods for marketing your business online.

Why email?

Email marketing allows you to hone in on your desired audience to a degree that is not possible with other types of media.

SEO-Tips-for-Better-Website-Ranking-2018

Happy 2018! As with every new year, new goals come to the fore and for most small business owners improving brand awareness, online marketing efforts and increasing profits are all on their resolution list.

Given that we live in a digital world, ranking higher up in search results can help to achieve all the aforementioned business objectives. Essentially, the higher up you rank in Google results, the more likely your brand will be seen, and thus the more traffic you’ll get to your website and in turn, hopefully an improved bottom line. But this all begins with making sure you are keeping Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in mind.

First off, we’d like to thank all of our clients for a wonderful year of web design, logo design, app and brand development and all the other print and online products and concepts, we’ve had the opportunity to be a part of. We are blessed to be a part of bringing entrepreneurial dreams to life and helping established companies reinforce their brand or recreate their image in the online world.

It’s been a busy year and through the course of it, we’ve added two new members to our team and continue to grow year over year. Given the overwhelming amount of work we’ve had, we’re taking a break!

Our offices will be closed from Dec. 25 to Jan. 1, 2018. We will be returning on January 2.
