Posted by Ben Fjare on Feb 18, 2020 9:00:00 AM

As the new year makes its way in, we've been looking at the online trends of 2020 and what web designers, marketers, and business owners alike can expect as they set their sights on the new year. While trends often trickle from one year to another, we can safely say that 2020 will be a year of shaking things up. It will also be a year that introduces entirely new concepts into web design that will not only take users by surprise but likely split them into camps for and against.

FORECASTING THE WEB DESIGN TRENDS OF 2020

Posted by Katie Pierce on Jan 28, 2020 10:00:00 AM

Around this time of year, there’s a lot of projecting for the year to come. And 2020 is no exception. As a new year, an election year, and the start of a new generation, there’s a lot of forward focus and forecasting surrounding the upcoming 365 days. With all of the speculating going on, web design is no different. While technology has obviously been on a compounded growth path, it seems like it practically blew up in 2019. And with its massive expansion and infiltration, we’ve begun to see how it’s changing what’s possible on the web, what users are drawn to, and what we can expect in 2020.

7 Sources to Get in The Mood for Design

Posted by Alexa Audet on Dec 10, 2019 9:00:00 AM

Since our beginnings, man has been a fan of the pump-up. Waring tribes mixed warpaint to smear on their faces and smatter horse’s haunches. Pre-game rituals fuel the moment of execution, whether you are Brian Urlacher, would eat two chocolate chip cookies (while listening to country music) before each game, or Frida Kahlo, who liked to garden before touching paint to paper. The Ecuadorian national soccer team uses a witch doctor before their matches, and Michael Phelps listens to EDM after his breakfast of eggs, oatmeal, and four energy shakes.

Designing to fit your medium-device differences and responsive strategies for your website

Posted by Ben Fjare on Dec 3, 2019 1:00:00 PM

Fewer things are more likely to make a perfectly reasonable human being hurl their device across the room faster than an aggravating, user-unfriendly experience. With our proclivity to change devices to look at particular sites in different ways, responsive design can make or break the experience for the user. And, while you may expect that every site you come into contact with should work breezily on any device you own, it’s unfortunately not the case. There are still quite a few websites out there in their unresponsive state, which could use an upgrade to their experience for the sake of mobile devices everywhere.

Cowboys and Contractors Need Marketing Too

Posted by Gregg Alexander on Nov 26, 2019 9:00:00 AM

Across the country, there is a unique class of folks that stand out as anomalies from the digitized masses. They aren't hard to recognize. Often, they're using aging tech or a non-smartphone, they would rather get dirt under their fingernails than be on social media and have little to no idea what a meme is. Often referred to in the marketing world by the kind euphemism of late adopters, this group of hard-working, rarely online folks typically has some of the sparsest resources when it comes to their marketing, design, and demand generation. 

They tend to occupy more trade, agricultural, and specialized skill forms of business, be it guiding, farming, construction, charter services, commercial supply, or more industrial-focused work. For many of these people, they have the "been doing it this way for 30 years, and it's worked well for me" byline, and business typically comes from a real word of mouth route. But, like all good things, the days may be numbered for continuing this way in a world going ever faster and faster toward the interconnection of things. Today we're looking at why every single individual, even these late adopters, can benefit from a strong marketing game.
