Logo and website for Mississippi software developer Lifecycle Solutions

Occasionally I get to design for people that I love to work with. Lifecycle Solutions does amazing work right here in Jackson, Mississippi, and partnering with them on projects has completely upped my game. I designed their logo and website a few years ago, but I recently had the opportunity to revisit both and do some freshening up. The results are clean and simple, and we intentionally departed from more common tech themes to help them look and feel as unique as they actually are.

Firing the website back up again

By Addison Hall / Posted Sunday, July 16, 2017

I had briefly taken this website down, leaving only a simple landing page stating that I was no longer taking on any new clients. Well, that simply did not work, and it left me with nothing to tinker or communicate with. So I’m firing the old website up again. It’s due for a redesign, but I’m not going there yet. Instead, I’m going to focus on making this version better—both on the surface and under the hood. Sometimes a little housecleaning can make things feel like new again.

Massimo Vignelli dies at 83

Massimo Vignelli dies at 83

Massimo Vignelli dies at 83

There have always been a select few designers that really appeal to me, and they have almost always been those of a more classical, conservative nature. Of those, Massimo Vignelli was often criticized for producing the same style of work over and over again for all of his clients. However, given his long and successful career, one has to admit that he must have been doing something right. I see his work as a constant seeking of perfection—he did what he did, and he did it really well.

Mr. Vignelli passed away yesterday at 83. The design world will surely miss him.


New website: Voices of the Vigil

New website: Voices of the Vigil

We’re very proud to announce the launch of Voices of the Vigil: Documenting the Soviet Jewry Movement. The Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington D.C. (JHSGW) has gathered together a massive amount of content based on their physical exhibition to be used on the site, and we’ve managed to integrate almost all of it. We worked with the JHSGW staff to:

  • recreate the exhibit narrative online,
  • build a gallery of all the exhibit images (and then some) and cross-references to the exhibit, 
  • create educational materials for teachers and students,
  • and a whole lot more!
