AlbertaTweets.ca Makes Waves Online

A couple of weeks ago Team Armadillo released a new side project, AlbertaTweets.ca, to an incredibly positive reception. Born out of our interests as political junkies and data nerds, this new project is an exciting step in a new direction for the team.

AlbertaTweets.ca

As avid data and political junkies, we had been contemplating doing a project which would involve twitter data and some sort of visual data analysis. Over the past two years, we’ve been attending a variety of conferences which have delved into the realm of web data and the political spectrum. Then as rumors of a provincial election started to surface, it seamed like the perfect timing. Hence the birth of AlbertaTweets.ca. (Read More…)

Team Armadillo Launches BrianJHoltby.ca

Earlier in December, Team Armadillo was approached to develop a web site for potential Progress Conservative Calgary-Currie Nominee, Brian Holtby. His campaign team needed a quick and clean web site built within a short time for the beginning of the PC nomination season. Using some of the already existing branding, Team Armadillo was able to put together a couple of intense days of work to craft a full-fledged web site for Brian and his campaign team.

The Big Switch From Written Manuals To Video Tutorials

Armadillo Studios has always prided ourselves in creating great personal relationships with all our clients. Our philosophy is to view our clients not as customer, but as members of a big warm happy family. One of the techniques we have used to build that type of relationship is to provide a fantastic suite of personalized support with all our products. One of our key elements has been the creation of customized manuals to accompany all our web sites.

When we first started creating these manuals, things were a bit simpler. WordPress was a very standard tool and our client pool was much more manageable. But as our sites have became more complex and our client base has grown, it has become more difficult to provide comprehensive instruction manuals that cover all aspects of our clients products.

So like any good company we have chosen to grow and adapt. Since the beginning of September we’ve taken the bold step towards developing customized video tutorials.

Introducing The 5th Anniversary Stickers

As mentioned, Armadillo Studios will be turning five on August 31st. To celebrate five great years of providing top-notch web design services to the masses, we decided it was time to redesign our ever popular Armadillo Stickers.

Since 2008, our initial run of stickers has been a massive hit with everyone. We’ve shared them with friends, clients and numerous associates at a variety of networking events. And like any good batch of stickers, they’ve “randomly” appeared on the back of laptops, toolboxes and exotic locations all over North America. (Which is something we would never encourage… well, at least not publicly). But as we continue to move forward, we realized it was time for a bit of an upgrade.

So with that, we present the 2011 edition of our much beloved stickers.

Printed by our good friends at JakPrints on their gorgeous vinyl stock; this latest rendition once again places Milo, our company mascot, front and centre. This design has incorporated a unique five year crest to give the stickers a more retro feel. This new crest features the company name, web site address and also five subtle stars. The five inner ring stars, alludes to our very first branding scheme, the Armadillo Star, and also represent a single year of existence as a design outfit. With this edition we’ve also included plopped our name and web site address right smack in the middle of the design. This of course, is a pretty novel idea that was glaringly missed in our first sticker incarnations. And as always out stickers leverage our unique mint green and chocolate brown colour palette

We’re really proud of how these edition turned out and we look forward to sharing them with everyone
