Big Slice launches in Target stores; Philsquare helps launch Big Slice website

February 20, 2014
Written by Bailey

The Philsquare team is excited to kickoff our 2014 project announcements with a great new website for a local Kansas product getting major store shelving space this month! 

In October, we were contacted by Grandma Hoerner’s (you may have seen their store off of I-70 west of Topeka near Alma). They had an exciting new line and wanted a new stand alone website. Their product, Big Slice Apples, are kettle cooked apples that they’ve sold traditionally in 16 oz jars. Their new product, are single-servings of these apples with new, delicious add-ins (apricots, green coffee extract and caramel are examples). We were also working with a deadline: the product would be in more than 200 Targets by the end of January and the Big Slice team needed to start promoting the product right away.

C: News
Almost a year ago, we revealed the most exciting Philsquare website design yet. We had streamlined content and we focused on what we did and how we did it (our process and portfolio pages). A year later, we still totally love the website (if you know Phil, you know this is surprising). It just needed some freshening up: like a new haircut for spring. 

We’re proud to introduce the updated and even better Philsquare.com website (version 4.2...or so.)

The basics of web and email hosting and domains

December 16, 2013
Written by Phil Martinez
Owning a website usually means you need 3 services. These are website host, domain registrar and an email host. Most major web hosting companies provide all 3 services. However, you don’t have to rely on one company to provide each of these services. For example, at Philsquare we prefer Google for handling our email services so we use them instead of our hosting company, Media Temple. However, this requires another set of credentials (login information) to track and we pay additional costs. To get a better understanding of these 3 services, let’s talk about them individually.

Cider Gallery 3.0

September 10, 2013
Written by Bailey

The Cider Gallery and Events building has had quite the year. A year ago, the building was run down and abandoned. Drab, fading brick. Dark, empty interior. Just a year later, after months of renovations, The Cider Gallery is a must-see destination for Lawrence’s Final Fridays. The second floor is abuzz with businesses moving in and using the open cubicles and office space with wood floors and beams. The brick exterior walls of the building lend a cool background for events and wedding receptions.
