Yikes, where has time gone? It feels like only yesterday we were celebrating the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013, now we’re thirty days into the new year. Well, it’s time to get back into the groove of things again with our first _Nine-Banded_ post of 2013.
So here you go. Please enjoy! (Read More…)
This post has been re-posted from Armadillo’s President’s personal web site as it touches upon a subject that we’re currently very interested in. We hope you enjoy this post and if you have any questions feel free to contact us at any time.
I know it’s a bit of a cliché, but when talking about the advancements in campaign technology and design one cannot underestimate how much “Barack Obama’s campaign team has brought to the industry”:http://www.barackobama.com/. Whether it was the revolutionary techniques and concise planning employed by the campaign team in 2008 or the “impressive data-driven objectives set out by the 2012 re-election team”:http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2012/11/when-the-nerds-go-marching-in/265325/. Either way the ground work laid out by _The Obama campaign machines_ in both elections has ushered in a new era within the political world and has essentially set the standard for the importance of a candidate’s online presence.
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…)
