Hi! We're Emerald ✌️

Design Dispatch #07

Published 10 months ago • 1 min read

Hello!

It has been a month of adventure for the Emerald team! Leah was in Alaska, Charlee celebrated her birthday and now we're both in Portland. We also refreshed an entire website in three Design Days (!). This documentary about the history of Canadian Design is on our watchlist and this report on distinctive branding is on our reading list.

🔦 CLIENT SPOTLIGHT

Bronx Arts, an NYC arts charter school, needed a website design that was easy to navigate and reflected the energy of their school. Bronx Arts is bright, vibrant and hip. (The school we wish we went to!)

Thanks to our partners at BCS Interactive for the collaboration on this project!
