Congratulations to Jacob Hagan of Hagan Ace Hardware, on his recent recognition as one of 2019's Young Retailer of the Year by the North American Retail Hardware Association's (NRHA).
It was our pleasure to work with the Loveland Habitat for Humanity team to tell this remarkable story through inviting design, encouraging forms, engaging click-throughs, and beautiful imagery. Because of their passion for community, Loveland Habitat came to us with authentic images that paired nicely with their branding and the overall feel of the site.
This summer, our team is volunteering at an elementary school fun run aimed at supporting mental health awareness, access, and understanding and at the Basalt Vista Habitat for Humanity project that is aiming to help house our community's greatest resource: it's teachers! So, in June when you get an unexpected "Out of Office" response to an email, know that we're out working hard in a different way, impacting our community and our mindset, so that we can offer you the best of our selves.

We're also honored to share in the glow of their second year of winning many Colorado Press Association awards and namely, the second year in a row as First Place for Best Website.
Secure Socket Layer (and Other Seemingly Arbitrary Words That Are Really Important to Your Website’s Success)
Not too long ago, Google announced that switching a website over to the HTTPS (the S stands for secure) protocol would give it a small boost in ranking. Let's start by asking a few questions; why would Google rather HTTPS for SEO rankings? And what are the benefits of using HTTPS for SEO? It should also be noted that there are a few concerns regarding SEO and changing an HTTP website to HTTPS. Learn whether your site is secure and what to do if it is not.
