We’ve got a little something for everyone in today’s Web / Design New Round Up. Whether you need to address an impending burnout or are just looking for a little letterpress eye candy (which may very well help with that little burnout problem too), here are some of the favorite gems we’ve dug out of our favorite corner of the web this week.

Memphis Website Launch Alert – Club 152

Memphis Web Design | S2N Design

Club 152 came to us with a dilemma many businesses face: they needed a new website. The Beale Street dance club’s previous website was quite simply dated, which is a particularly painful problem when like Club 152, your business depends on its hip and current vibe. Adding another dimension to the project of building a more up-to-date website, Club 152’s demographic is an unusually wide one for a dance club as it encompasses three floors - each with its own distinct feel. Our goal here at S2N Design was to give Club 152 a web experience that better represented the feel of the entire club.

Memphis Web Design | S2N Design

It is time for Web / Design News Round Up once again! This week we take a look back into notable design of the past that has helped shape every aspect of design today, jump to some of our favorite design trends of the future, and of course have our featured Worst Site of the Week.

Memphis Web Design Launch Alert : Obsidian Public Relations

“When lava meets water, something magical happens." Obsidian PR’s tagline is as robust and dynamic as the team itself. It offered us here at S2N Design the perfect place to begin when building a robust site worthy of a PR company that boasts such clients as the Maria Montessori School, the Memphis Zoo, the Southern College of Optometry, and more. It’s an honor to be selected to build the website of a self-aware business like Obsidian PR. Naturally, as a leading business in their field, they came to us with a clear handle on their brand and plenty of well-formulated content. They were looking for a Memphis web design team who they could trust to translate their established content and brand into a website that accurately and usefully represents Obsidian PR to their prospective clients.

Creative Works 2015: What We Learned

Memphis Web Design | S2N Design

The design team again had the privilege this year of attending the Creative Works Conference. Our experience last year was near-spiritual: a coming together of the design community in a real, raw, and vulnerable way. Allie and I left feeling inspired, connected, and most importantly: ready. Ready to challenge ourselves and our work and learn. This year's Creative Works was nearly double in size, leaving it still as a fairly intimate affair of 250 people or so. One really nice aspect of Creative Works is that Josh Horton, the organizer and founder, wants everyone to hear every talk – so there is no shuffling and picking-and-choosing who you can see and not see. Which, as one can imagine, is great. There were a lot of exceptional speakers this year.
