We've completed a number of trademark programs for our client companies and organizations during 2015. We selected 15 trademarks to feature in our Behance portfolio.
The one constant thing we deal with as a design firm, is continual change. What worked or mattered a decade ago hardly seems relevant now, and new apps, ideas, and technologies are changing the ways we design for the web, and business, on an almost monthly basis. In 2010, the iPad was launched and created dozens of industries around this one device. Today we can’t imagine a world without mobile computing.
This is all a big way of saying that change comes quickly on the backs of technology, and it’s not always easy to predict where we are going. Still, some trends can be spotted ahead of time. In fact, those tend to be the biggest and most significant, so it makes sense for us to protect ourselves (and our client companies) from the future when it’s obvious what’s on the horizon.
With that in mind, here are four areas we’re watching where web design and marketing will change in 2016, so that you can start preparing with us now:

#1 Algorithm Changes Can Wreak Havoc with Your Traffic
In the same way that commercial fishermen catch things like tires and soda cans in their nets, Google often punishes good marketers (unintentionally) with successive algorithm updates. That means that, even if you’re careful and always do things ethically, future search engine changes could wreak havoc with your business.
Founded in 2012, the goal of Philanthropic Foodies is simple – to eat, drink, and give back! PhilanthropicFoodies combines a culinary showcase of talented local chefs and products from local purveyors, as well as a silent and live auction, to create a unique fundraising event that benefits multiple nonprofits within the Central New York community.
Philanthropic Foodies was born from the desire of local food enthusiasts to channel something we love to do (eat and drink) into a vehicle to give back to our community. In the past three years, Philanthropic Foodies has donated over $100,000 to five deserving and local organizations: Friends of Dorothy House, The Samaritan Center, On Point for College, Signature Music and CancerConnects. In 2015, we're thrilled to once again honor Friends of Dorothy and welcome Stupid Dumb Breast Cancer and The First Tee Syracuse.
