They are a versatile organization with a wealth of expertise, which pride themselves on their close-knit relationship with their clients.

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.”:http://www.brianjholtby.ca

Armadillo Blacksout For SOPA & A Better Internet

Today, January 18th, Team Armadillo is joining hundreds of web sites across North America in “blacking out in support of the anti-SOPA and anti-PIPA”:http://sopastrike.com/ movement.

And while it’s great news that “SOPA (The Stop Online Privacy Act) has been shelved by Congress”:http://www.zeldman.com/2012/01/16/ding-dong-sopa-is-dead/ for the time being, it still doesn’t address some of the underlying threats towards the web industry in North America. It’s a step forward, but governments north and south of the 49th parallel must show a greater understanding of the importance of this emerging industry.

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*.

What Does Armadillo Studios Do?

On August 31st, *Armadillo Studios Inc.*, will celebrate the beginning of our fifth year as a web design outfit.

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. We’ve also lent our skills to a variety of non-profit causes; from the “yycPhotobook project”:http://www.yycaphotobook.com to the “yycapps.com project”:http://www.yycapps.com to the SXSWiseasy campaign to helping the “DCFoodForAll project”:http://dcfoodforall.com/. But in the busy and hectic world of web design, as an organization we have never really explained *what we do*. (Read More…)

Introducing The 5th Anniversary Stickers

As mentioned, Armadillo Studios “will be turning five on August 31st”:http://blog.armadillostudios.ca/article/what-does-armadillo-studios-do. 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”:http://www.jakprints.com/sticker-printing/ 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
