Last weekend the S2N Design team attended the 2016 American Advertising Awards and we were thrilled to take home two silver ADDY awards for the work we've done this past year. See our winning work here!
Today’s big S2N Design website launch is a redesign that proves simple and streamlined is the way to go, even–and especially–when your website is content heavy. The Southaven Chamber of Commerce’s previous site was cluttered and dated, filled with paragraphs of text that few of their users had the time or inclination to read.

It’s a good time to be online. The Internet is prettier, faster, and more user-friendly than ever, thanks in part to the innovation in browsers spawned by the healthy competition amongst browser developers today.

Web / Design News Round Up is back! This week we have a typography must read, some inspiring paper art, 2016 design predictions, and some new tech we are not so sure about yet.
Our most anticipated change of kicking off the new year was adding a new designer to our team - and HE IS HERE! Learn all about Taylor in classic S2N style - through an interview of where we ask him all the hard hitting questions and uncover his deep dark secrets. (Take that Barbra Walters!)
As we bid adieu to 2015, and look ahead to 2016, we wanted to take a moment gather and reflect on our year here at S2N. This year brought us a LOT of big changes, and a lot of exciting new projects. We're excited to see how 2016 is going to possibly top it!
As we begin to look backward at the year that has past, and forward at the year to come, we review some of the best ads and and trends, as well as a new semi-secret lab from Apple!
No ifs, ands, or buts about it, good navigation is vital to getting and directing the traffic you want. As you plan your sitemap and its navigation, remember if your visitors can’t read or understand the map, they won’t be sticking around for long.

Here we are once again! This week we challenge you to test your Typography knowledge, investigate the new Pantone Color(s) of the year, review the history of several brands you know (and maybe love?) plus more.
