Eat My Dust TC10K

With all the buzz surrounding the upcoming TC10K this week, we thought it was a perfect opportunity for Eclipse to once again take part in something wonderful in the community. We officially can declare 100% office participation for this year’s Times Colonist 10K Run in support of The Heart and Stroke Foundation!

(From the TC10K Website) In 2010, the Heart and Stroke Foundation will celebrate its 15th anniversary as the Exclusive Pledge Charity for the TC10K. Please help us make this the most successful year ever! Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both women and men in BC, but regular physical activity is an important part of preventing heart attack and stroke. In fact, positive lifestyle changes can reduce your risk by up to 80%.

See you on Dallas Road, Sunday, April 25th, 2010.

Best and Worst Agency Holiday Cards

To wrap up the holiday season, we thought we’d review the wave of 2009 agency christmas cards. For many people, especially those in the creative field, holiday cards are something to take pride in.

Check Out Our New Digs!

If you are reading this blog post, it means that you have already been introduced to our new website. Our main goal with the new site was to showcase our services and work and also to give you, the visitor, a stronger understanding of the Eclipse brand. We’ve also incorporated the newest website design and social media trends.

Redesigning your website is an investment into your online brand, allowing you to connect with your audience using web 2.0 standards. Here are our top five reasons to redesign your website.

1.) Stay Current
Technology and social media is changing at an incredibly fast rate, so it’s important that your online presence stays current with the latest trends.

2.) Fulfill Your Brand Promise
A professionally designed web site is an extension of your brand, your site becomes part of the experience of doing business with you. A professional image online will separate you from the competition as the supplier of choice.

3.) Enhance your Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
One of the hardest decisions your business faces when optimizing your new site is balancing a healthy medium of bells and whistles using flash, and keeping room for the bare essentials of HTML content for driving web traffic. Finding that happy medium will help make all the difference.

4.) Improve Aesthetic Appeal
If a fresh set of eyes cannot immediately notice your visual improvements throughout the first phases of your site’s redesign – scratch everything and go back to the drawing board.

5.) Ease of Navigation
There is nothing more annoying then having to think while trying to find information on a website. Your new site’s navigation should be made as intuitive as impossible. We found this source quite interesting for facts on design patterns and best practices, take a look.

We absolutely, above all, would love your feedback! Feel free to comment on our blog, tweet us, send us a message on Facebook or pick up the phone and give us a call, we’re all ears!
