Welcome to the Byte Blog where we share our thoughts on design, technology, and occasionally, cats.
Library navigations are important to get right because of the wide range of people visiting a site, and the range of needs those people have. We often hear librarians consider their website an online branch, which requires the care and thought an offline branch would take. So, how do you start thinking about a content strategy for a new branch? Read more!

First of all, congratulations on launching your new site! It takes a lot of work and time, for both us and our clients, to get a new site designed, built and online. So before anything else, give yourself a pat on the back for getting this far.
Our new business cards came in the mail, and they look great! Mokey, our furry senior designer, approves.
Anyone familiar with Moo, a popular printing company, will recognize that these are Luxe business cards. They’re about 3 times thicker than your standard card, and it’s noticeable. There’s also a very subtle blue stripe all around the edge of the card. It’s all about the details, folks.
“I want you to have business cards,” Michael announced to me one morning, coffee in one hand and his own card in another. He handed it to me and continued, “but this design is old, and it’s not working anymore. How would you like to redesign it?”
Modern Sprout is a side project of one of our favorite clients. They've created a windowsill planter box that’s "simple, self-sustaining, and naturally stylish." It's a micro-hydroponics system that automatically waters and nourishes the plants, and you just need to give it water and nutrients once every few weeks or so. The hydroponics system is hidden inside the box, and requires no dirt, only water and nutrients and electricity, and they have a solar cell that solves the need to plug in. Very smart! Nice work Sarah.
