Horror, Spiders, and Robots

Ready for a scary story, with robots and spiders? Not exactly science fiction, we'll call this one "web development reality" instead. Search engine companies like Google have developed computer programs that go online, and see what's out there on the internet. These programs check every page, click every link, gather as much data as possible - and report back to headquarters with the information.…

A Tale of Two Wheels

Let me begin this tale by expressing my love for riding bikes. I love the wind in my hair, being outside and finding neat spots to explore. When I was in high school, I would be out for hours just riding my bike around town even though I had a license and a car. An added bonus is I am getting exercise while I ride. The bottom line is I feel accomplished when I get to a destination by bike as opposed…

Working in Tandem with Clients

We admit it: we’re a little nosy. When you are an Avenue 25 client, we will ask you lots of questions; some may seem crazy-random and not even seem pertinent to your logo design or your marketing project. Yet, there is a method to our madness. We need to know exactly what’s going on in your mind, so we’re always on the same page to create the best version of your business. While you might think…

Looking forward to the Super Bowl (commercials)

For me, February 5th can’t come fast enough. Not because I’m a Patriot or a Falcon fan. Not because of the snacks (while they are a plus), and not because I simply love to watch football. I am looking forward to the Super Bowl because of the commercials. I’m always diligent about getting my snack plate ready and getting comfy on the couch so I don’t miss a single commercial. I take commercial…

The Future is Now

Generation Z has never lived without technology. There has been no point in our lives when the internet and cell phones didn’t exist. That being said, we have always had information ready and available whether it’s from the Iphone in our pocket, the desktop in our bedroom, our laptop on the coffee table, the TV in the living room… you get the picture. There is no point in the day when we have…

Request. Review. Repeat.

We have all had those awkward email exchanges when we are subtly dropping hints for a client to write us a spectacular follow-up review, and they never do. But wait - why do we need to be shy and doubtful? We provided them a great service and our next step should be confidently requesting an online review. With that in mind… Be as candid and open as possible with your customers when asking for…

The Voice of Generation Z: Type This, Not That

This weekend my Mom and I were reminiscing about different things my family has posted on Facebook, and how many fun adventures we have had throughout the past couple of years. Facebook has been an incredibly useful tool to keep in touch with the family members we don’t see all the time, even though it’s becoming less and less popular (shh, don’t tell my mom).  In the middle of the conversation,…
