2 Ways Apple Just Killed Your Marketing Strategy with High Sierra Update

For hardcore Mac users like me, the anticipation of a new update to our iOS devices and operating systems is the 'adulting' version of Christmas Eve as a child. Designers, photographers, developers, and marketers wait anxiously around the soft glow of their Apple logos, thoughts of new UI, and UX, and desktop wallpapers dancing in their heads, filling the void from when we found out Santa wasn't actually real, but Tim Cook is...he may be a robot, TBD.

How We Helped Launch NH's Hottest New Farm-To-Table Restaurant

How We Helped Launch NH's Hottest New Farm-To-Table Restaurant

As the newest high-end farm-to-table restaurant featuring New Hampshire's 2013 Best Chef of the Year, Revival Kitchen needed to make a splash when opening their doors for the first time. We were tasked with increasing brand awareness and engagement on social media while creating an online user experience that guided customers easily through their webpage when viewing menu choices and making reservations.

Did Apple Just Kill Your Favorite Mobile Pay App?

Did Apple Just Kill Your Favorite Mobile Pay App?

You'll soon be able send and receive money from your friends within Apple Pay. 

The new feature was announced at WWDC, Apple's annual developer conference. Much like money transfer app Venmo, Apple Pay can now support peer-to-peer payments.

The feature will be integrated directly into iMessage, so users can send money directly within a conversation with a friend. 

The feature will use Touch ID to make sure the transfers are secure. 

Once transferred, the money will go into an Apple Pay cash card. You'll then be able to send that card to friends or family, or transfer it directly to your bank.

Apple didn't immediately say whether it would charge either the sender or the recipient for the service. 

The feature will be available as part of iOS 11 and WatchOS 4, which will arrive later this year.

Airbnb: a real-life Westworld?

Airbnb: a real-life Westworld?

Welcome Home. The words that, over the last year, greeted guests to Airbnb. Innocuous and charming. Small town language for a big world vision: to let people feel a part of a culture by placing them at the sacred heart — the home.


And yet their homes have evolved into homogeneity. No longer a reflection of an exotic society outside, interiors have become what Kyle Chayka coined as ‘AirSpace’. A word that captures the familiar-unfamiliar aesthetic, a coffee-shop simulacrum of exposed brick, reclaimed wood, Edison bulbs, Nespresso...
