Happy New Year 2009 from three steps ahead

Happy New Year 2009 from three steps ahead

Another January First has come and gone, and in the spirit of commemorating round trips through the Gregorian calendar, we at three steps ahead would like to wish all of you out there a happy, peaceful, and design-filled year.

Why the Swiss-Army-style pocketknife, you ask? Well, over the year I’ve realized that one of the most valuable qualities that three steps ahead brings to the design world is our ability to provide just about everything design-related in one place. It’s great to be able to bring our clients the benefit of “one stop shopping” for a variety of different design goals. With our expertise in branding, identity design, print design, web design, photography, virtual tours, video production, audio engineering, 3D design (as seen above), environmental signage, and more, there’s very little that you can’t accomplish with us (we’re not adept at fine chocolate confections, for example; very sorry).

2008 was a good year. Most of our 2008 news was covered in a previous post, but I’ll fill in the September to December gap with some portfolio updates in the near future.

In the meantime, here’s another New Years greeting that didn’t make it past the final cut:

Influenced by the gorgeous and impeccable work of Scott Hansen as well as my awesome new Diesel wallet, the design doesn’t seem to feel as memorable as the Swiss Army knife does. But I still dig it a lot—especially the completely from-scratch lettering—so I didn’t want to scrap it altogether.

In any case, the finest of 2009s to all of you!

    You mentioned fine chocolate confections. Uh, I’d like to order a dark chocolate pocket knife please. What? Oh, I love your impeccable style and design sense. You’ve done it again Josh! Congratulations!!
