This week we had the pleasure of doing a corporate photoshoot for CAPCORP, one of longstanding clients (see HealthPlus) and who we are currently developing a new website for.

Below you can find a sneak peek of a couple of the images we took, and keep your eye out for the launch of the new CAPCORP website coming soon!
Our recent social outing saw the “brave” ones of our team bow up over at Archery Games. It was a lot of fun, even though I think the management team was getting particularly harsh treatment! To finish off the day we headed over to Hometown Sports Grill for post-game beers and snacks.

Think about how would you describe your company, is it something you see or feel? There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to what kind of imagery to choose for your web site. Web sites have come a long way and having an impactful design can certainly help you achieve your goals.
