It’s hard to believe that we’re kicking off the third month of 2010. This year is our busiest yet and we’re eternally grateful to our clients for keeping us so busy! Since the beginning of the year we’ve welcomed two new clients to our roster — Ein Communications, one of the nation’s top boutique PR firms, as well as Saint Armand Ventures, an elite networking group based in New York City. We’re looking forward to an ongoing relationship with both of these clients. In addition to our new additions, we’ve continued to grow our relationship with GYMR PR, The Nature Conservancy, and athenahealth by taking on new projects in 2010.
In addition to keeping up with work from our clients, we have some updates we want to make our clients and fans aware of:
Things We’re Th!nking About
As you may have noticed over the past few weeks, we’ve launched a new series on our blog titled “Things We’re Th!nking About.” Through Twitter, Facebook, and our RSS feeds, we stumble upon quite a few interesting articles on a weekly basis. This series will aggregate the articles we think are the most relevant for our clients into one central location. Below each article, we post the general topics the articles touch upon so you don’t have to click through on every link — only the ones relevant to you. We’ll try and post the latest articles at least once a week on the blog, but you can always access our real time feed here.
In addition to posting relevant articles to delicious, we’ve also launched an online sketchbook on Posterous. Here, we’ll post examples of beautiful design, typography, color palettes, and other things that make our design heart tick. Feel free to grab some inspiration here for your own projects.
As if keeping up with us on Twitter, our Website, blog, delicious, and Posterous wasn’t enough, Think Tank Creative is also on Facebook. In addition to linking to our blog posts, we also post fun things on our Facebook page (we recently told you how to get free pancakes!). Join our 120-plus fans to stay up-to-date with the latest!
*NEW* Thanks for Th!nking of Us
New this month, Think Tank Creative is launching its “Thanks for Th!nking of Us” program. Our clients — past and present — have always been our best form of advertising, and we think it’s important to say “thank you.” So, beginning March 1, we’re launching our referral program. For every referral that results in a new project, we’ll say thank you with a discount on your next project or a little gift to say thanks! Contact us for full details.
*NEW* Designing for our Most Difficult Client
Our final announcement for today, is that we’re about to embark on a redesign of our Website. Sigh. The redesign is bittersweet — it we last redesigned our site about five years ago, so we’re anxious to rip it apart and come up with something new and exciting. But it has been our site for five years. We definitely know what our clients go through at the prospect of a redesign. Plus, designing for me. UGH! There isn’t a client in the world that’s as big a pain as I am. Maybe I should hire a designer to torment with the redesign (I mean to handle the redesign…). But really, it is going to be a great project. And we’re going to look to you — our clients, fans and readers — to help us. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be asking for your opinion on the site as it exists today, what you’d like to see, and what you think about our competitors sites. The best part is, we’ll be blogging the whole entire (good, bad and ugly) process. Stay tuned!
