Armadillo Studios Inc.

HarmonBand.com Set To Crank It To Eleven

About a week ago, Team Armadillo Studios was approached by Darren Harmon and our friends at “WMS Communications”:http://www.wmscommunications.com to help with a new project. Darren was looking for a fresh new look for his band’s web site (“http://harmonband.com”:http://www.harmonband.com) to coincide with a headlining gig at a local Calgary-based charity. So, armed with a tight timeline and a great new client, the team at Armadillo Studios set about revamping the band’s main site in time for the big show.

Moving Forward with Web Fonts

In the past, we’ve talked about the emerging trend of web fonts. In particular, “our posts during SXSW 2010”:https://www.armadillostudios.ca/sxsw10-the-big-trend-is-web-typography/ were glowing with the potential of this new trend. But oddly enough, up until our last couple of projects, Armadillo Studios has made a concerned effort to take this latest trend with a side of caution.

_Why?_

Well let us explain.
