Our Favorite Resources
WordPress.org: All of the websites we create, are on WordPress.org. This software is called a Content Management System allowing clients to be able to log in and make changes to your website without knowing how to code. WordPress.org is by far the best.
Bluehost*: This is a great web hosting company. We use them to host many websites.
StudioPress: The Genesis Framework is one of the most popular and is what this website is built on.
MailChimp: We utilize this wonderful service for all of our email newsletter campaigns and love it. If you have 2000 or fewer subscribers, you can sign-up for the free plan and send up to 12,000 emails per month to your subscribers.
Trello: Our favorite project management tool to manage all of our client and internal projects.
Creative Market*: Our first stop for all things branding related. We have many favorite photographers, font designers, style attributes and the list goes on and on over at Creative Market. Take a look at what all they have to offer.
Adobe Color CC: We love Adobe Color CC. It allows you to upload an image and creates a color palette for you.
Colour Lovers Another website we spend a lot of time on browsing the color palettes section.
