We designed the tickets and marketing assets for The Hockey Shop’s Meet & Greet Kevin Bieksa event last week. 50 lucky fans were able to attend this closed door event. We were also there to cover the event with photography and video.
We fulfill a complete range of marketing services for The Hockey Shop Source for Sports which includes their in-store signage for all their big sales throughout the year, new hang tags, social media assets, email marketing and website updates. Here is a shot of some of the signs for their Annual Holiday Sale that runs Dec. 1 through 24th each year.
Twitter rolled out a new header option for your profile last week which are very reminiscent to Facebook and google+ but IMHO fall short. I am all about customization and the ability to build your brand through good design, unfortunately Twitter ‘s really limited your options. The header image is 520px x 260px and is overlaid by a transparent black gradient, a centred profile pic, then a few lines of white type with your twitter account, website and bio excerpt. The black gradient works ok when your bg image is an actual photo but over a solid colour is just dirty. . Your profile avatar is centered with a white border which really limits your design. Basically we just need to get creative and work within the limits of the feature or just bail out and keep the old one. At this point, you are not required to have a header image.
Personally I think it looks best if you can include the twitter background image into your profile pic so it is part of the design instead of just plopped on top. Here are a few creative examples that do work.
If you would like some help with your twitter header design, send us an email. firstname.lastname@example.org

It was a real challenge to design a setup that would display the jewelry how the client wanted and hold the position for the shot. I built a frame out of foam board and used fishing line and clips to float the jewelry and hold it in place. I used 2 soft light boxes, a spot light behind the product and one from the top.
To maintain proper lighting, colour and prevent hotspots in the jewelry, I couldn’t go full white bg on the exposure and requires cleanup in photoshop but delivers a fantastic final image.
With more searches performed on YouTube than on Yahoo, Bing or Ask, YouTube is now the second largest search engine. Each month over 10 billion YouTube videos are watched in the US alone. Businesses should be taking advantage of this medium to market engaging content to their consumers. Video is much more engaging than text and videos appear in search engine results so why not optimize your videos for the web and start a YouTube channel yourself? We recently created a YouTube channel for Realtor Michael Jordan to post up video tours of his listed properties.
The Hockey Shop is Western Canada’s largest independent hockey retailer. This project consisted of migrating their 10,000+ product database over to Magento to support their high volume of online sales. The Hockey Shop needed an e-commerce package that could accommodate a higher level of customer service and more efficient order fulfillment process and Magento was just the platform they needed to take their store to the next level.
