At Comrade Web, we’re not looking for clients -- we’re looking for partners. As a custom agency, we need businesses that want to partner with us to create things that are effective, new and memorable.
One of the most effective tools that people use to motivate and inspire themselves, is music. Here at Comrade, when you enter the office, you are either greeted with the sound of music blasting or silence as everyone plugs in his or her own headphones to listen to their preferred music genre. Here is the music that inspires us.
Don’t get us wrong, online is great – heck, as a digital agency, we’re online all day long. But, with the digital world seemingly encompassing every aspect of our lives, it’s becoming more common to see businesses funneling all their energy and resources online while neglecting their offline responsibilities.
Many companies believe that logos, headers, and business cards are what make a brand. They’re wrong. Understanding the difference between branding and graphic design is the first necessary step to creating your own brand that is unique, strong and alive.
How Comrade Web Uses Technology To Diversify Their Skillset And Unwind After Work
As a digital company, we never stop immersing ourselves in the online world. When we're not at work, we switch our focus to the digital technologies that inspire and entertain us-- we can then take what we learn outside of the office and create unique solutions at work. Here are some of the digital tools we use to relax that also lead us to create better work for our clients.
As a business owner, it can be nerve-wracking to hand over your passwords and usernames to someone you just started a partnership with. We understand. However, without that information, there’s only so much that can be accomplished without you physically sitting in the office with us and logging us into the necessary sites. Without your credentials, your site will suffer from sporadic timing and an increased response time during emergencies.
In honor of the closing of Chicago Tech Week, we are compiling everything we know about networking. Networking in today’s society is a lot like dating. You need to exhibit the right amount of enthusiasm, ask the right questions and identify if this company is right for you -- all while standing in a crowded room. But how do you accomplish all these things? We've compiled a list of "to do's" for your next networking event to make sure it's a successful one.
Writing landing pages, service pages, and blogs is easier said than done. If you’ve ever tried to write the content for a website, you know what we’re talking about. There are a lot of variables that come into play. Word count, tone, vocabulary, design requirements, SEO and sometimes there are even things we can and cannot legally write. At Comrade, we ask that clients send us “bare content” prior to completing any copywriting work. Obtaining this content from clients allows the copywriter to fully understand what you want to portray on the page. With this information, they can then turn that content into beautifully sculpted content for your site.
At Comrade, we are surrounded by flora. This serves a dual purpose. First, it keeps our air clean and second, it makes the office feel more like home – allowing us to work in comfort. Every plant in our office has developed a distinct personality. Introducing the most notable plants in the Comrade office.
