Our Office Just Got a Little Brighter...Jack Painted a Mural!

21 Mar 2017

 

We moved into our beautiful office space in North Portland a little over one year ago. We love the open floor plan and our incredible neighbors. (Shout out to Whole Bowl, who keeps us well nourished.) But our studio was still needing a little more Planet Argon flair.

Jack, our Visual Designer, stepped up to the challenge of brightening up our conference room. After a few days of planning, sketching, and painting, the white wall was replaced with a sweeping mural of Tilikum Crossing bridge. Watch the clip above to see the painting process in action – sped up to save you a few days.

Video Testimonial: A Delightful Snack-scription Service with Skoshbox

17 Mar 2017

 

The Skoshbox Japanese snack subscription box is founded on pure delight. From the initial website visit to the bright packaging and tasty products, Skoshbox sought out a cheerful and stress-free experience for their customers.

Their business quickly took off in 2014 – and their existing ordering and fulfillment process (a Frankenstein mix of Wordpress, eCommerce plugins, and lots of hard work) couldn't keep up. That's where we came in. We partnered with Skoshbox to design and build the tools they needed to scale their business.

We enhanced the Skoshbox website, maintaining their unique and vibrant aesthetic every step of the way. We also built dozens of new features, including a tighter integration between subscriptions and shop purchases, reviews, gift subscriptions, waitlists, and more.

As a result of our partnership, Skoshbox was able to increase their business exponentially, while providing a smoother experience for their customers every step of the way.

Find out more about our partnership above.

AngularJS vs Ember.js -- Comparing Apples to Oranges

We are awash in a sea of options for Javascript frameworks.

We all want the right tool for the right job, but separating useful information from noise can be tough & choosing the "correct" technology can be a daunting task.
