What Should Your Companies Culture Really Be About?

After analyzing what our company’s culture really is about, I looked up the definition of culture in Merriam-Webster dictionary and this is what it said: “Culture is a way of thinking, behaving, or working that exists in a place or organization.” Working at a technology company it comes with little surprise that we have an interesting company culture. In fact, we do live up to the expectation that we wear nerd shirts and jeans while occasionally indulging in an office game of Jenga. Don’t get me wrong, this is part of the fun at Todaymade, but it is not the […]

Four Ways Technology Is Being Used to Solve Problems Around The World

Bringing Girl Develop It to Fargo

When I heard about a program called Girl Develop It back in 2013 from Jenn Lukas, I knew it was something I needed to get involved with. It wasn’t until I started my position, here at Todaymade, that I really started to realize the benefit of being able to code the websites I was designing through HTML and CSS. I approached my pal, Megan Beck, a fellow web designer who had learned a little code in the past but wanted to extend her knowledge base and help out with this program. Together, we applied for a chapter of Girl Develop It in Fargo, and three months later, we are in […]

Why Strategic Planning Doesn’t Work

Strategic planning is a component of every business. I’ve worked for an association, non-profit, fortune 500 company, and a start-up. In each of these businesses, I’ve been a part of the strategic planning process. When it was time to build a strategic plan for Todaymade, I referred back to my previous experience. The problem is, I’ve never felt like strategic plans really worked. Why? To get to the root of the problem, I first analyzed the typical components of a strategic plan: These components didn’t seem to answer my questions. All of the components seemed valuable, so why didn’t I feel past […]

Waterfall v.s. Agile – Which One Will Work Best For Your Project

We all have experienced moments when technology has failed us. Most of us respond in one of two ways. We either decide to completely avoid the use of that piece of technology or we get resourceful and hack together some type of complicated system to make it “work” for us. Either way it’s not easy, not without frustration, and often not worth the time. During these technology fails we often blame it on a poorly built product, which it probably is. However, should our blame be limited to just the product? What about the process it was built in? After […]

Why Writers And Designers Need To Collaborate

People like to know it all and do it all. Which is great, but there is no one that’s perfect at doing everything. That’s why collaboration is important. When collaborating, you’re taking your strengths and the strengths of another person and working together. In the end, you’ll have a more successful result. We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master. – Ernest HemingwayClick To Tweet Why Designers Need Writers By Ashton Wirrenga In the same way writers need designers, designers need writers. Often times I find that writers are told precisely how to interact […]

What Not To Design

This past year I took my first fully web-based class, Interactive Design. We learned the foundations of code and how to design for responsive applications, but what I remember most was one of our first projects. Our professor gave us the task of designing the worst website we’ve ever seen. It soon turned into a highly competitive project among my classmates as cats, rainbow gradients, misspellings, flashing elements, gifs, background music and so on began filling the presentation screen. As much as we all hated the sight we all created, we thoroughly enjoyed being on the opposite spectrum of design: […]
