We threw confetti last week to celebrate the completion of our longest running project. Well this week, I’m asking for each of you to hold up your iPhones or you iPads to toast our new mobile site. An internal feat that may rival our client’s for longest running initiative. However, to our defense, there is in an old expression that sums up our reasoning quite well; “The Cobbler’s Children Have No Shoes”. According to Wikipedia (phew thank goodness there was no black out this week), the phrase is, “used to describe the phenomenon where certain ‘professionals’ in any given area are so busy with work for their clients and their teams that they neglect using their professional skills to help themselves or those closest to them.” I’d say wiki has it spot on.
To be honest, we’ve known for years that our beautiful (yes, I am biased) flash-based website was not compatible with any of our iPhones, but one awesome client lead to another and before we knew it all of our clients had mobile sites and we had the blue question mark. We were reminded regularly of this fact and it was one of the many thoughts that kept us at night, the other ones just happened to be more pressing. Well at last, we have provided our “children” with shoes. Okay so we don’t have children and we don’t make shoes, but we have given our iPhone and iPad enthusiasts something to see.
You won’t find any angry birds or words with friends, but you can view a sampling of our work on the portfolio page, read our blog, send an email or call us with one touch of a button. Okay enough talking about it, scan the QR code* above (or go to RhymeAndReasonDesign.com on your phone) to check it out and if you really like this blog you can read it again on the mobile site!
*Don’t know how to use a QR code? It’s cool, we didn’t know what to do with one the first time we saw the little digital box either. What you need to do is download a QR reader from the app store on your phone. Once the reader is installed click on the icon to run the program and then point your phone at the QR code and lead the reader scan it.
