Growing Our Brand: New Site Launch

August 3, 2010

While the initial design direction has been adjusted, we are mere days away from the launch of our redesigned corporate website.  We’re super excited about the new look and can’t wait to share it with you.  Watch this space for our formal launch on August 9th.

Growing our Brand – Step One: New Website

April 7, 2010

When groups of creative people spend countless hours together wild things happen.  As our company continues to grow, our brand is pacing alongside.  The natural progression is a new look for our website.  One goal is to make the site easier to navigate while providing quick access to our most requested features. 

We’d love to share the process with you.  We are done planning and designing, which means we are building the beta site.  If you’d like a sneak peak at the behind-the-scenes, surf on over to our development site: and take a look.

Watch this space for announcements as we get closer to launch.

View from my desk…

January 27, 2010

My absence from posting can only be attributed to one thing…the birth of my and Amy’s baby girl.

For the last few weeks I’ve been working from home and today, decided to share the view from my home studio desk.


What we’re listening to…

Photo Friday – New Signage

October 2, 2009

Amy spent some time this week rejuvenating the signage at our Western Massachusetts website design headquarters.  Included in the mix are some fabulous new window decals that are subtle but highly visible.  We’re totally digging this upgrade.


We’ve stopped recycling!

September 24, 2009

Huh-wha?!? Yes, that’s right…we’ve removed the recycling bins and there’s no more separating trash here at 99. But how can that be?

Ok…hold on…there’s got to be a good explanation, right? Yes, indeed. You see, we’ve stopped recycling simply because we’ve run out of things to recycle. How is that possible?

Over the past year, we’ve worked hard to become a paperless office…with great success. With little or no exception, all business is now done with electronic documentation. From proposals to compositions to invoices, we’ve made the complete switch…everything is paperless.

Without paper to recycle, the only remaining recyclables around the studio were our water bottles. Switch! We’re now using stainless steel refillable bottles, filled with filtered tap. No more plastic.

After these eco-friendly mods stuck we discovered that our recycle bins sat empty…really empty. So we stopped using them. We’ve stopped recycling because we’ve stopped using the things that needed to be recycled. We’d like you to think about doing that too.

Got a green story of your own?  We’d love to hear about it.  Drop us a note.

Northwest Wining and Dining Re-Design

September 12, 2009

Braiden Rex-Johnson is a best-selling cookbook author; a regular contributor to Pacific Northwest, The Seattle Times Sunday magazine; and a columnist for Wine Press Northwest and’s Al Dente blog. She also knows a thing or two about staying current.

We re-designed her website in 2006. Since then, there have been a lot of stylistic and functional changes in the web world and Braiden wanted to stay ahead of the wave. Last month, we launched a refresh of her design, widening the layout, simplifying graphic elements and content, and integrating a Content Management System throughout the entire site.

Braiden’s website is rich and deep with content and bringing all that information into a CMS provides better site-wide search functions and gives Braiden the ability to edit all of her content. Very cool.


Photo Friday!

September 4, 2009

We love Photo Fridays.  While working in Orlando this week, we took a break and hung out at Cocoa Beach.  Here, we caught friend of the studio, Shawn, at the end of an afternoon of surfing.
