black & white…

From the Huffington post

These gorgeous, black-and-white websites are proof that sometimes, less is more.

a brave new day…

The last two weeks have been really exciting. We’ve made some big strides with Rotary Brantford’s Clowns for Kids committee and their 2010 fundraiser. Introducing social networking to Rotary Brantford has been a very rewarding experience… it’s nice getting people past the fear of the unknown and watching them thrive when they see the potential of things like YouTube and Twitter.

We made some new connections in the Hamilton area with some great new partners… photographers, film makers, PR specialists, copy writers & marketers… we’ll be doing some very cool and very high-end marketing and design for some big names in the Hamilton / Golden Horseshoe area under the name “NU Integrated Marketing + Communications”.

To top it all off we’ve got our very first summer student… Carley Gallant has joined our team and we’re thrilled to have her aboard. Carley is a bright girl with a talent for two-dimensional animation, stop-motion animation and traditional Illustration. She’s got a ton of very cool ideas and we can’t wait to turn her loose on her first project.

Stay tuned!
