This week’s edition of *Nine-Banded* looks at three of Team Armadillo’s side passions. Yes, it’s true when we’re not coding Drupal modules, pushing pixels in photoshop or cursing Apple’s XCode, we’re probably checking out the latest sports news, the newest CDs and of course catching up on the latest political happens with our good friends John Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
So this week’s Nine-Banded is dedicated to the fascinating intersection of design and our side passions. (Read More…)

Over the past five years the team at Armadillo Studios have prided ourselves on having an eye out for the latest and greatest in the Web Design and Social Media industry. Unfortunately, due to our increasing work load and growing family of clients, we’ve found it pretty difficult for us to write about these trends. So in a way to keep our blog a bit more active and interesting, we’ve decided to launch the *Nine Banded* series of blog posts.
What is Nine-Banded?
Simple, every two weeks we’re going to put together a short blog post with links to three or four really interesting tid-bits of information. They can be anything related to links on design trends, the newest social media tools, records we’re listening to in the offices, stories or happenings with our corporate clients or industry friends, funny pictures or interesting events that we’ve stumbled across – _pretty much anything that we think would be interesting to our followers_. Basically, a way for us to share some of our knowledge and discoveries over the past few weeks, without having to be too serious.
So with that we’d kick off the first edition of *Nine-Branded*, with four fun links. (Read More…)

Since launching last year, Boy Burma’s unique design have begun gaining traction through various local festivals and word of mouth (for the record, as ravenous Flames fans, Team armadillo is very fond of the Classic Calgary shirts). But Boy Burma wanted to started moving towards a E-commerce solution and to start selling their merchandise online.
