Our ears and eyes light up when we hear phrases like “push the envelope” and “non-traditional” or “something unique that we haven’t seen before.”
These types of descriptors are a designer’s dream, as well as an exciting challenge. When Silverdraft approached us for a website redesign, Tim Tiscornia, President of Silverdraft, was speaking the truth when he said “I set the bar high.” Continue reading “Silverdraft – Telling a Unique Supercomputer Story”

Our genesis as a company (about 13 years ago!) was creating logos and simple websites for small businesses.

However, it has remained an important part of our mission and our studio’s DNA to continue to serve business owners who are looking for something beautiful that won’t break the bank.

Hi, I’m Lindsey, account manager and new member of The Medium team. For the past eight years I’ve primarily served as a stay-at-home-mom/manager of my three adorable
animals gentlemen. I say ‘primarily’ because I also dabbled in real estate (my pre-mother career) and started a successful wedding photography side-business with my husband. These experiences were instrumental in preparing me for my role here at The Medium. I’m thrilled to be part of this talented and fun group of individuals, and also to get to know our amazing clients.

Introducing another “return” client! We created the original Scott Donogh Homes website and logo back in 2008. Since that time, Scott Donogh Homes has grown their business substantially.

The Meridian School, if you haven’t heard about it before, is an independent K-5 school located in a grand, century-old building nestled in a verdant Meridian Park in Wallingford. Meridian inspires children to approach learning with passion and curiosity.
Meridian came to us needing a complete redesign of their website. We started with organizing a photo shoot to capture the Meridian school environment. And, we used imagery as the focal point of the website design. Large scale photos really helped capture the uniqueness of the school.
“Can you animate the butterfly?” The Meridian School asked.

Something I’ve heard a lot during the last few months is that we “make things simple” for our clients. That’s a great compliment to get, and it’s made me think about the value of good Project Management. Communicating clearly, creating less (rather than more) work, streamlining the process, and in general keeping things simple has a high value.
You, the business owner, need to focus on your business. You have your own clients to satisfy, and your own areas of expertise to refine. When the need for high quality design work arises, it needs to fit within your agenda, and not add a lot of hassle or trouble.
To arrive at a finished product that matches your vision is a careful art of collaborating, directing, finessing, critiquing, budgeting, and communicating. A successful Project Manager does a lot of this behind the scenes, so that all the client sees are design options that look great, a beta site that performs seamlessly, and then a final invoice that is exactly what they expected.
So if our clients feel this way about us, fantastic, and I wanted to share the news! The whole team here is flattered. Here’s to keeping things simple.
