When I began my path as graphic designer, I thought a business’s logo was its brand — basically, different terminology for the same thing.
Somewhere along the six years I’ve been in the industry, I learned that a logo and a brand go hand in hand. They’re both important, but they’re not the same.
I don’t think I’m the only one who was confused on this point, so I’m here to help define the differences.Read more »

In a word: Presence.
We’ve designed and built countless websites over the past 11+ years. Many of them are branded online experiences that serve to differentiate a product or service. They have beautiful design, reflect the brand and values of an organization, have strong user interfaces, and are a great responsive experience online.
But what happens once the site is launched? (Besides high fives, of course.)
For many of our clients, the next step is a plan to maintain their web presence. To double down on the investment and ensure success, we need to think beyond marketing and hammer out a sales strategy. The website should be a key tactic in customer acquisition and retention.Read more »

When we started our agency, content marketing wasn’t really part of the plan — in fact, we’re not sure the term had been invented yet. But as our agency has grown, so have our practices.

Blog content feeds social media, which drives users back to the website, which keeps them engaged with calls to action, which spurs a free download or newsletter signup — and all of that, if done correctly, builds awareness and spurs purchases.Read more »
Firebird Raceway is a Treasure Valley institution. But its website was downright institutional: A static HTML site that had to be updated daily by a programmer. It was a situation that wasn’t cutting it for our clients, or for today’s ever-churning racing world.
Since 1968, Firebird Raceway has been offering high-speed thrills to Treasure Valley racing fans. Founded by Bill and Ellanor New, the raceway is now owned and operated by the second generation of “The New Crew.” Their revamped website had to build on what they call the “Firebird experience”: affordable, action-packed fun for everyone from the youngest fans to old racing hands.Read more »
We're very proud of the bottle designs for Cinder -- and now have some professional photos to share (photography by Welsh Studios). The minimal design and silkscreened application were two creative solutions to standing out at point of purchase (and support the sophisticated nature of the brand). We're very excited by the final results.View the photos on the Press/Media section of the Cinder website.Read more »
