After lots of planning, hard work, and an amazing web developer, our shiny brand new website is up and running!
Between the new website design and our new location, Effigy Design is maturing and getting our sea legs; we’ve always had a vision and an aesthetic, and over the past 5 years we’ve been able to refine it and tailor it to lead us to where we are now.
We keep coming back to how much we love being situated in Orillia. So much so that we bought the building that our new location is in and we plan on sticking around for a while- it’s nice to be rooted in such a creative community! There are so many entrepreneurs and artists in Orillia that make it such a vibrant place to live and work in, it keeps things interesting and fresh.
This year we hope to roll out an awesome newsletter that lets everyone know what we’re up to, features a small business that we’ve done work for, and has a sweet deal that people can take advantage of. We have already been working on Mariposa Folk Fest’s 2015 designs and loving the direction that that is going in, and we’ve had some amazing small business’ come through our door already this year that we are excited to see grow with their new brand.
As for the team? Natasha has been rockin’ it at derby, Nelson’s been trying to keep up with his quickly growing toddler, and Adam is kicking and punching his way through karate at Blue Dragon Martial Arts. I’ve been excited about reading books for Orillia Library’s newest book club, Books on Tap, which meets once a month at Brewery Bay to have a pint and chat about a book- if you like beer and books, I recommend checking it out!
And of course, if you think our website looks bombin’ (we think it does!) we highly recommend the services of the talented web developer, Malinda Watt, Studio DPI. She did a fantastic job helping us put it together and we absolutely loved working with her on this project.
