Knowledge is power, right?

This is a place to learn. We want to be a resource for relevant information that can help you with your marketing and web design goals.

Here, we will post articles about topics ranging from web design basics to color theory to the possibilities that are unleashed with customized WordPress and so much more. There will even be some in-depth looks at facets of marketing and design that you might not have thought of, like how choosing and optimizing your website images wisely can have an effect on your SEO.

For example, did you know there is some very real psychology behind reasons to not totally abandon print materials and why choosing certain types of paper or finishes will have a subconscious effect on people? There is a study to back it up! Impactful marketing has just as much to do with psychology as with aesthetics and tools. It is complex and constantly changing as technology and consumers do. Our goal is to break down some important aspects of web design and marketing in general in an easy-to-understand, useful way.
