A State-of-the-Art Upgrade!

We’ve been working with one of our top clients, Integra International, for six years and counting! Last year, Integra International revamped their brand and needed a website to match. We built a brand new site to meet their growing needs, including an in-depth “Find a Firm” search function that allows their global community of members to quickly and easily find partner firms all over the world. This was an essential feature to ensure their new site supported their mission and their brand, allowing their members to find collaborators by searching by name, industry, or geolocation with a few simple clicks.Read More

Shades of Blue

This blue color scheme may seem simple, but its diverse range of value makes for some serious eye candy!  So, what makes it work so well? The darkest gray-blues contrast beautifully with the sun-filled sky just behind the building, and the varied hues that make up the building’s facade range from true blue to almost green in a naturally-occurring grid.

A color scheme like this is great for corporate entities, banks, or any brand aiming to communicate trust and reliability. Felt near-universally to be calm and stable, blue sets your brand apart as approachable and dependable; an especially useful tool … Read More

Shades of Green

We love this color palette! While its made of mostly greens, a wide variety of shades and hues provides plenty of diversity and interest to the overall image. The bright camel and dusty white create strong contrast with the chosen greens, with each color sharing a subdued quality that highlights the natural harmony of the composition.

While green is on the cool end of the spectrum, its “temperature” is unique due to its status as a secondary color between two primaries; yellow and blue. This means the temperature of a green hue will vary greatly depending on which primary color Read More

Design Tips: Color in Branding & Marketing

Why Green Should Be Your New Favorite Color!

The next color in our Design Tips: Color Themes series is our personal favorite; GREEN! Okay, maybe we’re a little bias, but there’s a good reason our Creative Director [Michael Mance] chose a monochromatic green color palette for Mance Creative. “Men tend to like cooler colors while women tend to like warmer colors.

Warmed-up reds + greens (opposites on the color spectrum) harmonize with the sandy gold and beige, while cool gray adds both contrast and depth. Which color is your fav?
