Once a month at Newfangled, we have a Lunch & Learn session in which a member of the team shares a presentation (amidst pizza and soda) on a topic that interests them and relates to their role at the company. "10 Years | 10 Things," explains some of the things I've learned since working as a web designer.   more

Despite working on many projects involving complex CRM integrations over the past few years, I've had a tough time understanding the big picture of how these systems work and how their services differ from one another. In late 2010, I made a goal to finally tackle this subject and get a better understanding of the CRM and Lead Marketing Automation landscape. I shared what I learned with the Newfangled team in a recent Lunch & Learn session, but also wanted to share it here for those of you who are similarly bewildered by the web lead management field.   more

A year ago, I wrote a post expressing my wish that 2010 would be the year of better web fonts and, as the year progressed, I got my wish. As we enter 2011, I believe it's time to say goodbye to sIFR font replacement and say hello to @font-face font embedding.   more

So what to do...   more

Each year, Newfangled closes for the last week of December. This time off allows all of us to step away and focus on the non-transactional things in life for a little while before we gear up to do it all again the following year. I've come to really value this time--it always seems to replenish my energy and give me a new perspective on who Newfangled is and where we ought to be going. Last week was no different, but this year I noticed there was a clear theme to my thoughts. I kept coming back to the company Newfangled has become, what I've personally learned over the years, and from whom I have learned. I'm so fortunate to work with the wonderfully talented employees and clients that I do. It's a rare thing to be able to truly enjoy the people with and for whom you work, as I do. Over the past week, though, I've realized that there are three people in particular whose voices are always in my head, tweaking my thought processes, and steadying my direction.

It's been a busy six months since we launched our mobile suite back in the spring of 2010, and we've been fortunate to build mobile sites for a number of our long time clients, and in the meantime, add some great pieces to our portfolio!

To improve SEO, I often advise clients to come up with a manageable list of appropriate search phrases to implement, and to look a few places to help spur ideas. The first step is to be aware of the non-branded search phrases that are already working for a site. Here is the simple way to quickly focus on these keywords.   more
