Get Your Photo on Google Results with Google Authorship

14 Aug 2013

I know you have seen it. You are searching for a hack to make IE behave itself and you come across search results with someone’s smiling mug right there next to the link. If you are like me, you are more likely to click these results instead of the boring, all-text results. Something about seeing the author’s face right next to their link inspires an added air of credibility and expertise. Pretty good deal for those people.

McMenamins Gets Mobile

14 Nov 2012

We started working with McMenamins earlier this year. McMenamins is a unique client in that most of its locations are of historic significance. They buy old, historic buildings and keep all of their unique history intact while converting parts of them to a theater or restaurant or bar or all three. They have more than 50 locations all over the Pacific Northwest. They needed a mobile site that would showcase what all their locations had to offer in terms of food, drink, movies, events, etc. For example, if you were looking for a location with a movie theater, a soaking pool and bike racks that is within 5 miles of your current location, you are in luck. Their new location search page will let you define your criteria to find that information. Whether or not you can actually sit in a soaking pool while watching a movie after locking up your bike isn’t guaranteed.

Fast forward to the present where we have launched McMenamins new mobile site that was designed by R/West, a local design shop, and implemented by your good friends at Planet Argon. It has been a fun and challenging journey for sure.
