Google unveiled a new logo yesterday, with much fanfare and no serifs. Reviews seem to be mainly positive, with many commenting on the friendly, open, childlike sensibility of the new design. Some of use here are feeling friendly towards it, too, though others have said, disparagingly,  “It looks like something from Toys R Us!”  We […]

We moved into our new offices in May in the Vermont barn we rebuilt over the past year. It’s still getting finished so we haven’t put out a lot of photos of it yet. When we do, you’ll see what a cool creative space we’ve made!  Until then, here are photos of our initial sign […]

The work we do for The Bank of Bennington is very rewarding. This is a client that challenges us and works with us with respect and enthusiasm. It has resulted in a series of TV spots that are not only charming and entertaining, but far and away distinct from normal bank tv commercials. Their message is […]

The dominance of Adobe in our business is frightening in an all-our-eggs-are-in-one-basket sort of way. Now that they have become a subscription-only software company, one of these days, we will have to make some tough decisions. When our current Adobe creative suite(s) (which we own) become outdated, the only option will be to subscribe to the cloud-based […]

John Lewis is an upscale department store chain  in the UK that I’ve never heard of before. But I stumbled across this spot and I want to cross the pond and shop there! I’ve watched it a number of times, and it’s pretty terrific. In fact, I dare you to think of a better tv spot! And […]

The Information Superhighway is a term that I don’t hear that much anymore.  Maybe it’s because superhighways aren’t as impressive as “the Internet,” but more likely it’s that everyone is grumblingly accepting the fact that the internet isn’t really being used for ‘informational purposes.’ MIT has a bazillion textbooks online for free in PDF format.

It’s from a fantastic Portuguese digital design firm: BÜROCRATIK. It lists the most popular web browsers, informs you of the most recent version so you can be as up-to-date as […]

In the Hall of the Pumpkin King

Posted in What We Like!

September is in full swing. A harvest “supermoon” has come and gone, leaves are changing, long sleeve shirts are back in fashion, and that also means: Pumpkin EVERYTHING. I love the absolute hell out of it, too. I’m fully over my half-hearted concerns about consumerism destroying something magic. As far as I’m concerned, I’m on the […]
