Three New Web Sites To Cap Off An Exciting March

March 2012 may go down as one of Team Armadillo’s most productive months.

To celebrate such a great month we decided to do a recap of *these three great projects*.

Lion's Eye Catering Redesign - 2012

AlbertaTweets.ca Makes Waves Online

A couple of weeks ago Team Armadillo released a new side project, “AlbertaTweets.ca”:http://www.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.

What Does Armadillo Studios Do?

Calgary Web Design - What Does Armadillo Do?

Over the past five years we’ve had the pleasure of working with a “variety of great clients”:https://www.armadillostudios.ca/our-clients/ on a whole spectrum of projects in Calgary and across North American. We’ve built online identities for a range of different businesses, partnered-up as consultants with our Drupal and WordPress expertise and even worked as social media consultants to help kick start some very successful campaigns.

But in the busy and hectic world of web design, as an organization we have never really explained *what we do*. (Read More…)
