Not all digital publishing houses are created equal. Do-It-Yourself software will always have it’s place, but can limit the possibilities and customization that current tech allows. From the very beginning in 1996 we set out to make an innovative custom product with our strong development and production teams. You may not see our developers front and center, but they are hard at work staying ahead of the industry and creating new features!
In our line of business, applications with options are better suited to meet customer needs. The customizable elements of our platform and premier service provides a competitive advantage for our customers. Customers as diverse as Baker Furniture and Super Bowl champs New England Patriots have requested and received custom interface design elements to match their style.

Respect the rickroll. Did you notice the rickroll warning before you clicked on the link? Probably not, that’s a good thing because that was a marketing test. Video is taking over the world!
89 million people in the United States are going to watch 1.2 billion online videos TODAY (ComScore). That’s a lot. Mobile and tablet shoppers are three times as likely to view a video over desktop users (Forbes). And did you know that 73% of consumers are more likely to make a purchase after watching a video (ReelSEO)? How many of those viewers are your customers? Is your publication mobile friendly? Video advertisements increase brand association, and consumers who view video ads on a mobile device are three times more likely to click through (Mobile Marketer).
60% of all data on the internet is video, and with more viewers using tablets and mobile devices, now is the time to see the value in a minute of video. Dr. James McQuivery of Forrester Research says the value of one minute of video equates to 1.8 MILLION words! Do you have the time to write that many words? Online videos are a practical use to increase user engagement and show off your products.
Video marketing continues to quickly expand and we have taken the steps to make sure you are covered. We have partnered with a leading video production house to quickly produce videos that make an impact. Now that you know the influence video marketing can play into your brand, contact us to get started.

The ‘flat UI’ trend emerged a little over a year ago. You may have heard people speak about it, or maybe glanced at a blog post that mentioned it, but you may be wondering what it is and how it became so popular?
Don’t get me wrong I love the 90’s, but the ‘has been’ flashy illustrations and animations are overkill and long loading. Next came skeumorphic design, design that is taken from the real world, a good example of this is iOS6’s bookshelf. I mean, Apple’s bookshelf has woodgrain, shadows and looks like a bookshelf you would see in your neighborhood book store. And just like most trends, this one hit the skids when Apple released iOS7. They introduced the concept of a flat user interface. A simple and effective technique, that literally flattens the image and uses bright, solid colors.
Flat Design is pure and simple. It’s easier on the eyes, but more importantly, it’s responsive, and can be easily seen on a range of computers and devices.
In keeping with the trends, you’ll notice that our Compass Solution utilizes flat design. It emphasizes usability with clean open space, crisp edges and a two-dimensional illustration. The rich mobile user experience tops the charts! We’ve incorporated a new mobile menu, allowing room for more buttons and features to appear on a smartphone. This is just a small snippet of our new powerful Compass Solution. One of our first customers to take advantage of all the new features is Ballard Designs. From here I’ll let the experience take you away.
