The end of one year and the beginning of a new year is always a great time for reflection and taking a moment to step back and revisit the events of the past year. 2014 was an adventurous year for the eHouse team and we were able to enjoy the continued journey of sharing our brand (or rather our re-brand), building expertise and focus on our craft and growing the team. We are looking forward to the experiences that 2015 will create!
Here we are, back at it again, with another update for all of you following our pursuit to encourage women creatives within our community. If you are unfamiliar with our efforts, feel free to check out our kick-off blog post here.
We were honored to have kicked off October's Dribbble meetup with special guest speaker Matt Stevens. Matt joined us in person from Charlotte and presented an array of his featured design work and some stories behind the work. In honor of the Halloween holiday, and without naming names, was also cool enough to share a few "scary" stories that you might encounter when working on your favorite projects. We often learn from the things we do well and the mistakes we might make along the way. Design is a journey!
It's no secret around eHouse that I'm
slightly obsessed with holidays — particularly Halloween and have been since I was a kid.
What undoubtedly started as a love for candy, candy and, well, more candy, this interest evolved into participation with haunted houses and eventually decorating at our own house (to which, some may find excessive) offering scares to the neighborhood kids.
If you've ever visited eHouse you've probably noticed something different about our company compared to others. Yeah, it’s true that we’re a pretty cool group of people that love what we do, but that’s beside the point! If you take a look around you’ll quickly begin to notice a trend. We've got a really strong female presence in our office! Even our two office dogs are females (Lily and Daisy if you were wondering their names)! With the addition of our newest project manager the scales have officially tipped.
