Duane Benson and Adriel Henderson from the Screaming Circuits team share the past challenges they were facing with their application, their experience working alongside Planet Argon’s team, and how our redesign of Screaming Circuits has put them ahead of their competition.
Steve Suo and Grant Butler from the Oregonian/OregonLive share their experience of working with our team and the results of our redesigned Recipe Box; from a more inspiring and searchable application, to an increase in traffic, to simultaneously freeing up their staff time to focus on the content they serve to customers.
Earlier this year, I had the good fortune of seeing Aaron Draplin of Draplin Design Co. speak at TEDxPortland. This short documentary series that Vans put together captures him in his element. Totally worth your time to watch these.
Great video to highlight how important it is to monitor how your users are searching for your products. Are there alternate spellings, abbreviations, and/or pop-culture slang that they might be searching for that you’re search indexes aren’t accounting for?
In many of our e-commerce projects, we’ve worked on a handful of solutions to address this. For example, a product like “LA Vacation” could be found under a number of possible searches:
City of Angels
The great thing with most search index tools is that you can shove a lot of additional keywords without having to expose this to your users in some archaic list on the site.
Juan was one of our closest friends. He was an important figure across the past three studio locations we’ve resided. Sadly, he’s no more.
While alive, Juan would never have agreed to allow us to share such an intimate moment with the public… but this is how we’ll always remember him. On his death bed, he whispered, “Tell them. No. Show them. Show them what I did. Let them learn from my mistakes.”
Our team has used ClickTale with several of our projects over the years. We’re excited to see that they’re expanding their feature set so that you can watch how people are using your site on a mobile device.
“Finding Portland was produced, shot, and edited in 51 days during March and April at the invitation of TEDx Portland, where the video was unveiled to a sell out crowd of 650 and met with a standing ovation. Filmed in Portland and the Columbia Gorge, this time-lapse piece offers a new perspective to the City of Roses. From a Portland Timbers season opening soccer game, to the top of the Fremont Bridge, to an aerial shot of Oneonta Gorge, Finding Portland tells the story of a city and its many faces.”
“Comprised of 308, 829 photographs taken from over 50 unique locations, it took an average of 3.8 hours to make each second of this film. The intent of the project was to place our cameras in unique locations across the city, achieve significant ranges of dynamic camera motion, and pursue cutting edge time-lapse techniques.”
