June 25, 2012

Back in our early days (2009!), we helped American Olympic gold-medalist Mary Whipple set up a WordPress blog, The 9th Seat.

Fitness Evolution Site Launches

June 20, 2012

Changing industry standards can be challenging, and that’s why Foundry was excited to work with Fitness Evolution to redevelop their site as they were opening a new gym in Seattle. If you’ve looked at any fitness club websites lately, you’ll find that they can be distractingly flashy and low on content. FitEvo wanted a site that matched their business model—no-frills, come-as-you-are fitness for everyone—but…[Read Full Post »]

Seattle E-Bike Zips to Life

March 26, 2012

We like helping out neighbors here at Foundry, and Seattle E-Bike is no exception.  Even before opening their shop in the heart of Pioneer Square, Seattle E-Bike debuted at the Seattle Boat Show. With bikes on hand and interest from the boat show, they needed a cost effective e-commerce presence, and quick. Foundry surveyed the options, selected and developed for a platform,…[Read Full Post »]

iPad!

March 16, 2012

Our new iPad, freezing cold and fresh from the FedEx truck, was just delivered into our grubby little hands. We’re mainly trying to confuse dictation and playing Infinity Blade II, but we’re also testing websites and some forthcoming tablet goodness. We’re excited about past work continuing to look great on the new retina display, as well as building new projects with…[Read Full Post »]

It’s been a while since we’ve updated the blog, so you may be surprised that the one of the first new posts in a long time isn’t going to be about a big fancy new launch, but about solving a couple of much less glamorous problems. Specifically, what happens when a piece of functionality fails? And what happens when your…[Read Full Post »]
