Your Website is More Than One Page, Right? Treat it That Way.

Top 5 Ways to Get Viral Success Online

Our in-house graphic designer, Eric Palmer, achieved viral sharing notoriety this week with a design series he developed around his passion for 8-bit art. After showcasing the series on online design portfolio site Behance, Eric achieved the spike in traffic after viewers known as online handles @XombieDIRGE and designer @PaulGalbraith, shared the 8-bit movie poster themed project with friends on their blog, Twitter, and Facebook profiles. The shares were enough to increase Eric's Behance profile viewership to the 1,000+…

Are You Mobile Ready?

We recently sat down with longtime client Kirsten Pellicer of Ace Longmont, and covered some basic information around the benefits of mobile ready site design. As a result, we thought it relevant to cover a bit about the basic importance behind mobile site capabilities, and how becoming familiar with this web development early, could give you the much needed market boost you've been looking for. Mobile development is a subject many of us have heard…

Coke Changes Can. World Ends.

We like to keep a stocked fridge here at BKMedia Group. Food, beer, pop. (Yes, I said pop... I'm from Michigan) Two of the staples in our little fridge are Dr. Pepper and Coca-Cola. As a designer my tastes are constantly changing. I pull inspiration from things that I see on a daily basis, so the way I lay out your piece on Monday might not be the same as it would have been a…

I Can Barely Mooove

Do you know the difference between a NY Strip and a Ribeye steak? How about a Delmonico and a Filet Mignon? I'm not gonna lie, I didn't either.

But when it comes to design, you have to be careful just how closely you imitate... And taking someone else's work, claiming it as your own, and then selling it is a far cry either imitation or flattery.

Giving New Meaning to the Phrase “Dead Links”

QR (quick response) codes are catching on all over. With the amount of people using smart phones these days, they provide a simple, fast way to direct people to your website, or any site. Here at BK, we use them on our business cards, allowing people to instantly check us out, as opposed to waiting until they're at home sitting infront of their computer. In today's culture of instant gratification and endless digital distractions,…

Hey @Everyone: look out for #Earthquakes

I stumbled across an article earlier this week (not StumbleUpon... that's a whole different beast) about a Chilean teen who is building up an impressive following on Twitter. He's not singing about days of the week, sharing texts from last night, or starring in movies. He's not a celebrity at all, but people care about what he has to say.

Negative Space: The Final Frontier?

Today marks the launch of the space shuttle Atlantis, and the final mission of the 30 year shuttle program. NASA's not giving up on space exploration, but they're retiring the shuttles to both focus on more unmanned exploration, and design the next generation of spacecraft.
