Glerin macaronsOur friends at Mockingbird Cafe in Christiansburg whipped up these yummy macarons in fun Glerin colors for a recent event we attended. Their creations are delicious, and they even have vegan choices!

Mockingbird Cafe is a great example of a startup that is using today's technology to grow: they used an idiegogo project to fund their new cafe and also used indiegogo to raise funds for their new vent hood.

Halifax County IDA logo

We're in the midst of a rebranding / redesigning project for the Halifax County Industrial Development Authority, and the logo was unveiled at a recent event at Riverstone Technology Centre. The modern logo uses bold blocks of color to reference city blocks, plots of land, or even a power grid. Glerin sponsored the bar at the event, and had some decorative fun with the new logo.

The Authority's branding hadn't changed for a decade, and the board members unanimously selected the design after weeks of Glerin working collaboratively with their staff to design a brand that wasreflective of the county's positioning and goals. We're now in the process of redesigning the IDA's website.

Glerin Business Resources sumo wrestlers
For those of you who haven't heard the news, we've added a lot of creative weight around here.  We've been fortunate to bring on Ben Capozzi as our new Creative Director, and Tina Morgan as Project Manager. Additionally, Heather Chipps and Trevor Smith have joined us as Designer / Photographers.

Ben has a background in assembling and leading outstanding teams, from his earliest ventures as an award-winning comic book publisher, to a brand design consultant for Papa John's under Starbucks' Wright Massey. He also has stints in public and higher education at Virginia Tech, Danville Community College, and the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center where he has taught digital media, design thinking, and creativity.

Tina is the person who keeps us in line. Organizationally gifted, she manages to keep the big picture in mind without losing focus on the details, despite the juggling often required. In past positions she has wrangled sprawling and ambitious projects with Virginia Tech, the Riverstone Energy Center, and the Southern Virginia Higher Education Center. Luckily for us, she's also very creative and a great photographer.
