Humanizing your brand

As a business, it seems appropriate to create a campaign that ties in to a discount, and watch the resulting data to gauge success based on sales, clicks, or whatever metric you like to use.

Our client makes the LA Times

Emily writes about Our Clients

Our studio is excited to expand our footprint into the great state of New Hampshire. A few weeks ago, we successfully launched the new Cambia by NFP website. Cambia takes a common wood species like Yellow Poplar or Ash and uses a unique process to produce a thermally modified product to enhance durability and dimensional stability similar to cedar, popular imported species (think teak and mahogany), and composite materials.

Emily writes about Our Clients

​Occasionally we get to travel to meet our clients who are farther afield. In February some of us drove through the record breaking snow in the northeast to meet with a really awesome client that makes thermally modified siding from poplar trees. They’re located in New Hampshire, so we heard some great Northern accents along the way!

​Well, here we are with an updated website and a new name. Don’t worry, we’re still the same 717 Studios team that you’ve been dealing with for years, but now we’ve got a brand that better reflects the level of storytelling and handcraftedy-ness that goes into everything we do. Now that we’re official, you should see the Pixel & Hammer brand out there more often. By the way, don’t forget to give us call and ask for one of our spiffy new Pint glasses!
