Free Wallpaper for your Phone or Desktop: July 2015

Hi! Independence Day is coming up, and we thought some red, white, and blue was in order.  Let's add some American pride to our screens with this month's freebie.

Bigger, bolder, and better. Website Design.

We're excited to launch our new website. It took us about two weeks to come up with a new design and implement everything. As you can tell it's pretty different than our last version. Gone are the cutesy graphics and hand-drawn icons. Those were nice, but we wanted a more professional looking site. We now have wide full-screen photos and text. The website also reflects some changes in our business Read more [...]
