Website Redesign is a must for some businesses. Over time, all businesses do need to update their online website image. The online image of a business is a reflection of the goods and services they are offering. A modern and clean image shows that we are up to date and in the know about what we are offering to our clients. An out of style design may be taken for a sign that a business is not fresh or current, and not the go to business for new info.
Content Overhaul is Necessary in a Website Redesign
Fresh site content is also crucial here. If information is not kept recent, website visitors may think you are not the market leader and may prefer to shop elsewhere. Keep info up to date with good content and with regular blog posts to help make this happen. If you are busy, you may need to hire a content writer to do this task for you. The money spent here is a good investment for your business.
You may wonder why a website redesign is a must-do even if your business is doing well, for instance. The answer is simple. When a company site image is enhanced, value is created. As a result, you can target a new set of clients with this image. Second, you can come up to par with a competitor who may be more ahead of the game than you are. Finally, you can think about raising your prices as a result of this new branding.
For the above reasons, I think a site makeover is money well spent. The value it brings is so crucial to keeping your site active and engaging so that clients will want to return over and over again. A good investment that over time will definitely pay for itself.
Toronto design tradeshow is coming up at the end of the year. Every year I make it a point of going to about three to five industry related trade shows; anything from web design to search engine optimization to graphic trends. As an industry professional, I think this is crucial in keeping up to date with client needs as well as making useful contacts that I can refer my clients to when the work is outside my scope of practice or skills. This is why I am blogging about a show that I think many graphic designers and web marketing professionals may be particularly interested in. Read More >

Lake Street Dive
Event on 2016-06-10 20:00:00
Lake Street Dive find themselves on the cusp of stardom, though they insist they will always be the same people whose stage outfits once consisted of matching sweater vests. We realize this could all go away tomorrow, says Rachael Price. But that wont change what we do. We want to continue to do this for a long, long time. This is what we love. We just want to make sure we keep enjoying ourselves.Lake Street Dive have been performing for nearly a decade after meeting as fellow students at the New England Conservatory in Boston. The band was hand picked by Minneapolis trumpet/guitar player Mike Olson and named after an actual neighborhood of seedy bars in his hometown. Vocalist Rachael Price came from outside Nashville, Tennessee, stand-up bassist Bridget Kearney was an Iowa native, while drummer Mike Calabrese called Philadelphia home. I wasnt only impressed with their musicianship, says Olson, who acquired the nickname McDuck while at the conservatory for his reclusive ways. They were also a lot of fun just to hang out with. The first four years of rehearsals were more like glorified dinner parties.Lake Street Dive has come a long way, but this just could be the start of something even bigger.It took a casually made video featuring the band gathered around a single mic, performing a cover of Jackson 5s I Want You Back, shot on a Brighton, Massachusetts, street corner to grab the publics attentionits YouTube views now hurtling past a million views. What followed was nothing less than a modern-day music business success storyT Bone Burnett tapping them to perform on the Another Day, Another Time show at Town Hall featuring music from and inspired by the Coen brothers Inside Llewyn Davis, taped for an upcoming special on Showtime. The New Yorker raved of their Town Hall performance: I cant imagine then, that Lake Street Divea quartet led by an amazing young singer, Rachael Pricewont be getting some air time soon. Rolling Stone called the band unexpected showstoppers, while Hollywood Reporter noted the group delivered one of the shows best moments with the swinging You Go Down Smooth, with stirring vocals by lead singer Rachael Price. The New York Daily News was similarly enthused, saying Lake Street Dive was the evenings wild card, and noting Price has the soulful howl of a young Etta James.And just like that, Lake Street Dive went from playing for a small devoted following, to selling out venues and planning an initial European tour, with dates on several late-night TV shows in the offing.While I Want You Back, a track from their six-song Fun Machine EP, which included five covers and an original track, was spreading like wildfire on the Internet, the band had little idea what was happening. They were ensconced at Great North Sound Society, a recording studio located on an 18th century farmhouse in Parsonsfield, Maine, two hours from Boston, with producer/engineer Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter) a location so remote, cell phone reception was spotty and web access non-existent.The new album, Bad Self Portraits, which is being released by the Northampton, Massachusetts indie label Signature Sounds Recording as the follow-up to a self-titled debut and subsequent EP, is a microcosm of Lake Street Dives evolution of the band from a weird alt-country jazz group to a pop-soul juggernaut, that turns 60s influences like Brill Building girl groups (Stop Your Crying), British Invasion rock (Bobby Tanqueray), horn-driven Stax R&B (You Go Down Smooth), Motown soul (Use Me Up) and even The Band-like gospel blues (What About Me).Our musical development has been like Google Earth, explains Olson, going from the entire universe to a specific place. Thats how weve honed in on our sound. We had the whole world of music at our fingertips, and we were unsure of what direction to take, but now were zeroing in a little closer.All four members of the band take part in the writing. The Bridget-penned title track is a wry commentary on how those selfie iPhone photos are just a cover for loneliness, but it could also refer to the rest of the album, each song a polaroid glimpse of a band that is constantly evolving.Nothing we do is set in stone, says Olson about the bands recording process in the studio, and that they are, first and foremost, a live outfit. Songs change when we start to play them for people. That determines the stylistic direction more than anything else. When we record a song, thats just a snapshot of where it was at that moment. And it continues to grow as we perform it.And as things are rapidly growing for Lake Street Dive, the nine years that they spent focusing on their musical development has left them with one constant to strive for. We are named in homage to dive bar bands, says Calabrese, we were, are and always will be a dive bar band. Whether were playing for 10 people or 10,000 we want them to have that feeling.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra With Lower Dens
Event on 2016-02-08 19:00:00
The threads of our past never unravel, they hover like invisible webs, occasionally glistening due to a sly angle of the sun. On Multi-Love, Unknown Mortal Orchestra frontman and multi-instrumentalist Ruban Nielson reflects on relationships: airy, humid longing, loss, the geometry of desire that occurs when three people align. Where Nielson addressed the pain of being alone on II, Multi-Love takes on the complications of being together.
Multi-Love adds dimensions to the band's already kaleidoscopic approach, with Nielson exploring a newfound appreciation for synthesizers. The new songs channel with the spirit of psych innovators without ignoring the last 40 years of music, forming a flowing, cohesive whole that reflects restless creativity. Cosmic escapes and disco rhythms speak to developing new vocabulary, while Nielson's vocals reach powerful new heights. "It felt good to be rebelling against the typical view of what an artists is today, a curator," he says. "It's more about being someone who makes things happen in concrete ways. Building old synthesizers and bringing them back to life, creating sounds that aren't quite like anyone else's. I think that's much more subversive."
While legions of artists show fidelity to the roots of psychedelia, Unknown Mortal Orchestra shares the rare quality that makes the genre's touchstones so vital, constant exploration.
