What The Team Has Been Up To

Bryan Garvin

  • Launched US Display Group’s new redesign.
  • Continued to work with Bill on the buildout of the new Prooflab sales site.
  • Recorded Episodes 4 and 5 of the Go Media Podcast with Jeff and Bill. The 5th episode was our 2012 Year in Review. In that episode, we introduced a new external recording method (Zoom H2) and brought the mics through a mixer, instead of a going directly into the laptop. Continued to test streaming live.
  • Finished Arsenal email campaign design and buildout. Should be sent out once the new site launches later this year.
  • Added a simple site switcher to the Zine, Mockup Everything and On The Map. This allows our visitors to quickly get to and from all of our properties. We’ll be applying it to the new Arsenal, Proof Lab and WMC Fest sites as soon as they’re out.
  • Put up a new mobile navigation experience on Go Media Zine. Will be adding it to the rest of our sites soon.
  • Got to Level 3 in the original Donkey Kong during the Go Media Christmas Party. My best ever.
