Have you been wondering what the latest Android trends are? We’re back with our quarterly statistics as we continue to develop new apps and test the latest devices.

What We Know Now: Amy Shrewsbery

If you were to look back on the start of your career, what words of wisdom you would give to your future self? Since one of Hanson’s core values is “stay curious,” we’ve been asking ourselves that same question. We invited a few Hansonites to reflect back to the start of their careers and reveal some lessons learned, including Video Production Specialist Ben Eddings, Account Director Sue Woten-Schultz, and Connection Strategist Chris Kujawski. Today our conversation is with Amy Shrewsbery, Senior Account Manager.

Celebrating 2014 WebAward Winning Client Partners

Individual achievement behind the creation of today’s top websites is important to be recognized. That’s what the Web Marketing Association believes, founded in 1997 to help “set a high standard for internet marketing and web development.” Each year, the Web Marketing Association produces the WebAwards, the longest running annual competition in which sites are awarded for overall excellence in web development. For the 2014 WebAwards, Hanson is delighted to announce that two of our own client partners are among the winners.

Apple Stats for Hanson Apps, Q2 2014

To complement the information Apple shares with developers, Hanson tracks the usage of all the iOS apps we develop in house. We report these numbers every quarter to help clients make informed decisions about the apps they’re planning, and to contribute to the conversations happening in the development community — and our Q2 2014 stats are now in.

What We Know Now: Chris Kujawski

One of Hanson’s core values is “stay curious,” an attitude of continuous learning that characterizes our employees and reflects the ever-evolving nature of our industry. To celebrate this value, we’ve been talking to various Hansonites about career lessons learned, starting first with Ben Eddings, video production specialist, and then Sue Woten-Schultz, account director. Today we’re talking to connection strategist Chris Kujawski.

The Hanson Fitbit Challenge

It seems everyone is all about the wearables these days, and Hansonites are no exception. We’re writing about them, developing apps for them, and of course using them. We’re also a pretty social group, with a strong sense of community and a competitive bent. So it was natural that, back in the spring, we challenged a few of our local business partners to what we called the Hanson Fitbit Challenge.

Celebrating the Art of Video Games at TMA

It’s game time, Toledo! Many of us here at Hanson are big fans of video games – playing them and developing them. And of course we’re also big fans of The Toledo Museum of Art. So when our museum partners announced their new The Art of Video Games exhibit, we couldn’t wait to help sponsor the opening party on June 21. We asked some of the Hansonites who went to comment on the experience.
