Optimum7 Workshops: Wufoo Forms and WordPress

At Optimum7, I do my best to grow a little bit every day. Whether it is researching a new skill, learning a bit more about a client’s industry, or simply making time to get to know a coworker a little better, I find it very important to adapt and evolve both professionally and personally. One of the ways we facilitate this growth at Optimum7 is through the use of an internal forum. On our project management system, we’ve designated a section that is purely for employees to ask and answer questions, or request tutorials for skills they’d like to improve.

As a Volusion customer or developer, there are certain rules and guidelines you must respect when importing products into your store. For example, all products in your inventory must have a product code, a description, a weight, an image, etc. assigned to them. While this creates structure and order, it can create certain issues and challenges towards getting all that you need using the Volusion platform.

Typography – Why it’s Important for Marketing

I love type but it is something that I am, admittingly, still mastering. This is mostly because I don’t have as much time as I’d like to practice and experiment with typography.

Convincing A Marketing Client Your Design Work is Worthy

When most people consider web or graphic design as a profession, they typically picture a designer working at, well, a design firm. However, design seeps into nearly every single aspect of everyday life. The screen you’re reading this on? It was designed. The chair you’re sitting in? Also designed. The cup you’re sipping coffee out of? Yep, a designer also had a hand in making that too.
