    I recently gave a talk to the local Chamber of Commerce in which I outlined some general standards for Social Media and how to use it. The talk itself was fine, and I was happy to be asked to do it. But in my experience going to a lot of other talks on digital marketing media, I’ve been shocked to see that the presentations are usually about ten miles ahead of where people actually have questions.

    Last week, one of our latest hires was explaining to me that we don’t feel like an Web Agency. Instead, he claimed that we felt and acted like a web development shop.

In this article I would like to address some basic guidelines about the issue of text legibility.

    Here are 5 things you can do to help get through the block:

    1. Look Elsewhere

    We often get trapped in 'the box'. We do things the same way all the time. We rely too much on a toolbox of reusable solutions. This habit can sometimes bring about a creative block or 'stall'.
