By | Uncategorized | No Comments
As a user, you’ve seen it. One day your information is all in one place, the next day an icon or access has changed, or a function even eliminated. The never-ending evolution of social media platforms can be equally frustrating when it comes to using social media digital advertising tools. Take Facebook for example. As its advertising service has grown, we’ve all at some point grumbled and shaken a fist at the computer. Its 20% Rule has flustered the day of many advertisers, large and small. After rumors that it may be going away, users were surprised to know that...

One billion and counting

By | Web Design | No Comments

That’s roughly the number of websites in existence today – but because new pages are born and others die every single minute, and more than three-quarters of all websites are inactive, it’s virtually impossible to get a real count. What’s much easier to imagine is just how important it is to stand out in a screaming sea of personal and product marketers trying to get your attention online. And users? Well, even your grandmother has thrown away her phone book. Today’s consumers have big expectations, and they’re not easy to please. They’re also web savvy, impatient and mobile. There are…

New Outta’ Sight Website.

By | Web Design | No Comments

Some days it’s a challenge to be your own client. As HenkinSchultz undertook the process of rebuilding our own website, we went through many of the debates, updates, questions and obstacles our clients go through too. You have a business website because you know you need one. So you have one. You don’t really like it. It has old information. The person in charge of it is either too busy to spend time on it or they no longer work there. The site isn’t really working for you and starting over is daunting and expensive. Or is it? Not all…

Vision. Execution. Impression.

By | Events | No Comments

If you’ve been around the HenkinSchultz office while we’re planning an event, it’s likely you’ll hear Kirby Schultz remind you of the one thing that will make sure it stands above the rest – People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel. This year, as in years past, our goals for the SDSU Foundation Donor Celebration were to ensure donors were honored, and to leave the nearly 1,000 people in attendance with an uplifted, proud feeling they would never forget. The evening kicked off with a…

Time Marches On

By | Creativity, Technology | No Comments

Roman times warned “Beware the Ides of March,” referring to the 15th of the month. But at HenkinSchultz we celebrate every day of the month. From our view above the city on 69th and Western, it’s easy to see the season coming to life. And as we continue to highlight 25 years of springing into action for clients, we take a look at what was happening in 1994. The most popular browser in the world was Netscape Navigator Forrest Gump was running, and running away with the Oscars Lisa Marie – not Billy Jean – married Michael Jackson Go For…
