Where did the summer go?
We can't believe we have left our readers hanging for so long! It feels almost like we decided to take a quick summer break, took a nap, and by the time we woke up, it was already fall. Talk about the Sleeping Beauty experience!
Still, if you think that we have really been sleeping all this time, you can't be farther from the truth. While the blog did fall asleep, we spent a lot of time working on all kinds of new and exciting things, and the fruits of that labor are already starting to show.
Here is the lowdown on what is in store for hART Sense Design this fall and beyond.
The Exciting Collaborations
Over the summer, we decided to partner with Cowboys & Indians Magazine by advertising in their General Marketplace section. Designing the ad required a lot of hard work and soul searching. In the end, we felt that, not having any formal education in graphic design, we were ill equipped to design an ad for a major national publication on our own. Enter our fellow Rapid Citizen (yes, it should be "Rapid Citian," but "citizen" sounds better) and up-and-coming graphic designer, product photographer, and marketer, Zach Dosch. Thanks to Zach, we now have a sleek ad graphic that we feel represents our brand well.
Our first ad is appearing in the October issue of Cowboys & Indians magazine, which has already gone out to the subscribers and should be on the newsstands sometime next month. The next one will be in the November/December issue, and the third will appear in the Spring Fashion issue in early 2016.
But that's not all! Last month, the friendly folk from the C&I Magazine invited us to send some of our products to be photographed for their famous Holiday Gift Guide. We don't know which piece(s) they choose out of the three we sent, so we are looking forward to a nice surprise when the November/December issue gets off the press.
The new product line is almost here.
Another piece of exciting news is that we will be introducing a brand new product line soon. We are still working on the last few designs, and then, photographing and listing all the new items will take a bit of time. We expect to have everything ready for your viewing and purchasing pleasure before the end of October.
The new line will incorporate leather with our trusted copper, sterling silver, gemstones, and pearls. More details and some preview images exclusively for our blog readers and social media friends will be coming soon. In the meantime, if you wish to receive updates about this line and other new lines planned to debut early next year, you can subscribe by filling out the little form found on our home page.
Here is to a productive fall and winter!
