The weather is heating up in North Carolina; summer tends to show up early here. At DesignHammer, the heat and humidity cannot slow us down. We are kicking off the summer months with four Communicator Awards granted by the AIVA, prepping for summer conference presentations, developing new client projects, and supporting our local eateries (one of our favorite pastimes, yum!)
Here at DesignHammer we’ve been looking at ways to efficiently generate content and distribute it. You may have seen the Reader’s Corner and Monthly Update blog posts over the past few months; these are the products of this effort.
This week is full of presenting and attending conferences, and we look forward to all the new ideas and fresh perspectives. Keep a look out for those insights next week. We have some interesting articles to share with you from last week, including: iOS each Navigation, deleting a Google My Business listing, effective briefs, and hacking yourself.
Spring is now in full swing at DesignHammer. We continue to work hard solving client problems, though are also happy to get out of the office and meet clients, vendors, and prospects at conferences around the country. We have been making submissions to awards, and hope to have some good news in upcoming issues. We even survived one of our local teams winning the NCAA Final Four.
We’re sharing with you topics this week that cover both design and development, as well as project management. The topics are: design terms you’re getting wrong, six programming paradigms, getting biased user data, and writing proposals.
We hope your holiday weekend was relaxing and fun! Some of DesignHammer team members are sharing on the following topics this week: German cabinet backing social media hate speech, risk and rare events, why some of us aren't wired for one calling, and the growth of Nginx.
A few years ago, DesignHammer wrote about their first standing desks and addressed some of the benefits and downsides around standing all day. It’s been a few years and we have a new addition to the conversation: the adjustable sit-stand desk.
This week we share highlights from articles addressing the point-and-call system, how to define processes that actually have things get done, all about the creation and use of Comic Sans, and why PDF’s aren’t ideal for email newsletters.
Thanks for checking out the March 2017 DesignHammer Updates! We have a bunch of news, tools, and tips to share. Spring is in the air and projects are moving along.

As always, I hope you enjoy the contributions from the DesignHammer team. If you have a few extra minutes, help us out!
