Testimonial From A Happy Customer

I had the pleasure of working with David Stewart and his team on a project to develop a brand identity, including logo, icons, and website for a mobile ecotourism application called ExploreEcoNB for Android, Apple, and Windows phones.

Dealing with Data: A Possible Solution

I just finished watching a webinar titled Solving Your Top Data Challenges. It was put on by SiriusDecisions and Progress. I was not able to catch the whole thing but I will share what I took away from the portion I watched. I learned that data becomes outdated within 36 months. Three years is enough time for most of one’s contacts to have changed their jobs, responsibilities, and or contact information. This does not mean Read more…

Redesigning Beautiful Eulogy’s “Satellite Kite”

The cover art for Beautiful Eulogy‘s “Satellite Kite, I looked at the cover art and assumed that the album was not worth listening to. How wrong I was. I heard them on Josh Garrels‘ “Love & War: B-Sides & Remixes EP” and was impressed.
