Being the new kid on the block, you may have found yourself doing things you had heard about, even some you had no idea about, in a place you knew virtually nothing about.

5 Tips for Responsive Design Creating Mockups

I love responsive design. I think it’s an excellent concept that will soon become a standard throughout the web, just as cascading style sheets became a standard in the late 1990s-early 2000s. Will responsive design become the definitive solution for web designers for the rest of time? I don’t know. That’s probably what designers thought about 15 years ago when CSS was introduced, before they could fathom the myriad of devices we use to view websites today. My predication is that the web will continue to evolve and adapt depending on how users interact with it. But for the time being, and for the foreseeable future, I believe responsive design is (almost) always the way to go.

Designing Business Cards in 2013

I have a bit of a confession to make. Growing up, I never wanted to be a web designer. In fact, throughout my life, I wanted to be a schoolteacher, a journalist, a filmmaker, a radio personality, an event planner…the list goes on and on. Now, if you actually take a look at my resume, you’d find that I actually explored all of these occupations in one way or another. But during my third year of college, I began to truly struggle with the question: what do I want to be when I grow up?

Bridging the Gap between SEO Account Managers and Clients

Let’s face it, we all have “problem clients.” Even Donald Draper did.

It would be nice if any other agencies they worked with were equally as cooperative. Concentrating on their own agendas may not only harm ours, but the client’s as well.
