March 2012 may go down as one of Team Armadillo’s most productive months. Not only did we launch our political side project AlbertaTweets to overwhelming fan fare, but we also launched three brand new redesigns. To celebrate such a great month we decided to do a recap of *these three great projects*.
Lion’s Eye Catering
As one of our longest standing clients, we were ecstatic when the wonderful Miss Monica was looking for a reboot to the “Lion’s Eye Catering web site”:http://www.lionseyecatering. Since it was one of our very first corporate projects, we were more than happy to take a second run at the web site. (Read More…)
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.
As avid data and political junkies, we had been contemplating doing a project which would involve twitter data and some sort of visual data analysis. Over the past two years, we’ve been attending a variety of conferences which have delved into the realm of web data and the political spectrum. Then as rumors of a provincial election started to surface, it seamed like the perfect timing. Hence the birth of *AlbertaTweets.ca*. (Read More…)
Armadillo Studios is ecstatic to announce the launch of the brand new “WMS Communications Inc. web site”:http://www.wmscommunications.com.
The team at WMS reached out to us a few months ago, looking for help building their online identity. As a boutique communications outfit based in Calgary, they were looking for a web design firm to come in and develop a unique vision for the company. They wanted a professional WordPress powered site that would not only catch the eye of potential clients, but also set them apart from the plethora of local competitors. (Read More…)
Late last year Calgary-based *TEKTELIC Communications Inc.*, approached Armadillos Studios to help redevelop the company’s online entities. TEKTELIC wanted a fresh new online presence which better encapsulated their presence within the Telecommunications industry. So without hesitation our team took on the task of not only building a new and comprehensive WordPress powered site, but to also re-brand the TEKTELIC’s Social Media accounts.
And after a couple of months of hard work, we are happy to launch the newly minted “TEKTELIC Communications web site”:http://www.tektelic.com.
Early this year, we were pleased to announce the launch of our redesign for Miles Davison LLP (“milesdavison.com”:http://www.milesdavison.com).
Miles Davison LLP., is a long standing and established legal firm within the city of Calgary. They are a versatile organization with a wealth of expertise, which pride themselves on their close-knit relationship with their clients. In 2011 they approached Team Armadillo to help create a new online home for the firm; one that would not only modernize their online presence, but also better reflected their corporate culture.

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
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.
