Trends come and go at light speed these days. Businesses often find themselves following these trends.

Ylvis – The Fox [Cover Music Video HD]

In Blog by Jerad HillLeave a Comment

The idea to recreate the music video for “The Fox” by Ylvis was instantly apparent to me as I was watching the video at 11pm on the evening of the videos release date.

I was not even finished watching the video before I fired off a text to James and Anthony about how this had to be our next video project. At …

Why Content Scales Your Business

In Blog by Jerad HillLeave a Comment

Content is not the first thing people think about during the planning phase of their company website. Most people still look at their website as an interactive tri-fold brochure.

A Book Every Entrepreneur Must Read – “Start.” by Jon Acuff

In Blog by Anthony K. GoodwinLeave a Comment

START. – Jon Acuff Given to me by my boss, Jerad Hill, the book really inspired me to…start. Intriguing concept I know, but the value of beginning something is great. (Finishing is the most important at heart, but you don’t finish unless you first start.) The book is written by creator of the blog, “Stuff Christians Like.” A soft-hearted satire to the lifestyle and attitudes that many Christians have in common. “Start.” is written in this same tone that is …

Inspiration Isn’t Always Necessary, but Nice to Have Around

In Blog by Anthony K. GoodwinLeave a Comment

Inspiration isn’t always necessary, but nice when its company is present. The most creative minds will even reach a blockade in their abilities to produce, but they never give up. The only way we fail is if we quit. Maybe your solution is better time-management. The expectations you lay upon yourself might be greater than you’re actually capable of. After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day (it actually took about 500 years). Hopefully your next article, design, video or …

Some topics will change while others remain the same. It doesn’t matter if what you’re posting about isn’t an original idea. Post another blog about the best way to cook TriTip and someone is bound to find your article and be thankful it was available to them. Although there are thousands …

Thoughtful Design

In Blog by Anthony K. GoodwinLeave a Comment

Looking back on the patterns of design we see consistent creativity but the output shifts between complexity and simplicity. Logos, websites, OS and products all experience this change in design. Take a look at Coca-Cola, the most superior of carbonated refreshments by the way, has changed its logo 11 times since 1886. The logo was a simple and plain font in 1886. By the 1900’s the logo for the company became a personal font that gave Coke its branding…a brand, …
