Welcome to the new 45royale
You’ve probably heard the phrase, “the cobbler’s children have no shoes”. Well, we’ve been so busy building great sites for our clients, that we haven’t had time to attend to our own. Until now.
It brings us great pleasure to finally unveil the all new 45royale.com. We’ve rebranded, added some talented folks to our team, and most importantly, added a bunch of new work to our portfolio.
So what do people think?
So far, we’ve been overwhelmed and humbled with all of the positive feedback we’ve been receiving on Twitter. Here are a few of our favorites:
@jamesm said, “Great work on the @45royale redesign. It’s beautiful!”
@benje said, “Absolutely fantastic redesign of 45royale.com – you guys killed it!! Props from England & @mutantlabs”.
@16toads said, “Props to the talented crew at @45royale on their terrific site redesign.”
@meink said, “Congrats to @45royale on their redesign. Awesome work by some of the best in the business.”
@eshalley said, “Always loved the old site, but this redesign is amazing.”
@gblakeman said, “The new @45royale site is gorgeous. Lots of fun little details too. Nicely done!”
@sprockethouse said, “Man, the new @45royale site is teh hotness. Top work, gents.”
It takes a village
We couldn’t have done this alone and we have a lot of people to thank for getting the site in top shape. First and foremost, we need to thank our go to development shop, Epic Labs. They were with us every step of the way and helped our vision for the site become a reality. And since we’re talking code, we can’t forget to mention the great work done by Casey Nix, who stepped up and delivered for us when we needed it the most.
We also rebranded with the help of the extremely talented Katy Garrison. We think she did a great job bringing the new mark to fruition, and we’ll break down some of our decisions that lead to the rebranding in a future article.
We also updated our shop, employing the photographic eye of the one and only, Danny Outlaw. We think he did a bang up job shooting our stunning models, J, Meghan, Dave, and Lauren. We had a great time at the shoot, and we really appreciate everyone’s input and help!
Last, but certainly not least, we’d like to thank the Atlanta Web Design Group, Strongbox West, and the Crabapple Tavern. Without their support this website doesn’t happen. Especially since the Crabapple Tavern serves whiskey. Lots and lots of whiskey.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be going into more detail about what it took to get our site launch ready. We’ll cover our updated branding, new team members, custom backend, Tumblr integration, a brand new Project Planner, mobile site, and much more. Feel free to follow us on Tumblr or Twitter to stay updated. Thanks again to everyone that made this a possibility, we’re super excited about the future of 45royale!
