    marketing Read More Published January 24 2011 Author Steffan Antonas Category Projects Comments 1 Comment Design Project The Vineyard Vines Blog Happy Friday Everyone It s been a busy couple of weeks and I m proud to be able to finally announce the official launch of a project I ve been working on with some awesome folks at Vineyard Vines Say hello to the shiny new Vineyard Vines Blog I was really excited when Lindsey the Director of Brand Communications contacted me and pitched me the idea of building Vineyard Vines a site where they could share their stories photos and news and interact with their customers The company was already experiencing a lot of success interacting with their customers on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter They just needed a central place to bring it all together and create a sense of true community And that s just what we ve done with the new site What I m really happy about as a designer is that the fun loving Vineyard Vines crew have embraced the idea of having a blog for all the reasons that makes blogs great It s awesome to see that the first few posts are true to what they stand for as a brand living the good life The stuff they ve already posted is fun full of personality and enthusiasm and shows you exactly who they are and what they care about I love the launch video that they posted this morning I watched it for the first time today and it put a big smile on my face What an awesome way to set the tone and kick things off For those of you who ve got 5 minutes of course you do it s Friday head on over to the new blog and check out the new digs If you re already familiar with VineyardVines com you ll notice that the new site integrates seamlessly with the old one there s virtually no difference in look and feel even though it runs on a totally different software engine The site runs WordPress and is built on Chris Pearson s Thesis theme so it s got top notch SEO and great optimized code on the back end We also included some nifty interactive social elements that pull in their Facebook Fan Page activity Twitter feed Flickr Photos and YouTube videos all in one place with a look and feel that matches their brand That s it from me for now Overall I m really happy with the end result and I hope the Vineyard Vines community really gets into this because they ve got some great people on the other end of this site producing the content Before I wrap this up I d like to send a special thank you to Lindz and Doug for their help and input during the project I had a blast working with you Good luck Published April 9 2010 Author Steffan Antonas Category Projects

  • Lease With An Option To Buy...In The Cloud - Steffan Antonas
    commit to a year as an individual and cancel after 6 months you ll only owe 50 of what s left on your contract to get out 6 months would cost you 300 150 450 Adobe is smart By making the entire suite affordable they re counting on you locking yourself into a product that they can license and maintain in real time So what s the big deal Well for starters now you re renting and you don t actually own anything That might not be a big deal if you re part of a large organization with a big budget but a lot of small teams and freelancers are bootstrapping to their eyeballs and need the flexibility to get in and out of commitments cheaply and easily Agreements like this means having to carefully plan cash flows and usage a full year out or you could be paying big bucks just to NOT use or have access to the software anymore For instance if a team of 5 creatives all have Creative Cloud licenses for a year and things change 6 months in the team owes Adobe 25 bucks per month per person for the rest of the contract just to quit and disband that s 750 in license fees that they re still on the hook for Again in the case of a small team this might not seem like a big deal But what happens when most of the marketplace has moved to a subscription based software rental model and you have to pay similar quitting costs for 3 5 or even 10 licenses for each team member That could be a significant concern for small teams who used to buy and own software and are ok with upgrading every 2 3 years because they don
