Mymo in the press

We've had a great first month since launching Mymo in November. We only had a couple weeks to take orders to make shipment for Christmas, and we ended up way over our expectations. And - without much of an advertising budget - we have the kind words of our peers and the press to thank.

Announcing Mymo!

It is with great pride and excitement that we announce our first product line... introducing Mymo! With Mymo, we are reinventing the monogram, using state-of-the-art 3D printing technology and a novel 3D geometry - to combine any two letters or numbers into a typographic sculpture for a necklace, keychain or ornament.

7 Billion Actions campaign featured in Catalyst

We were honored to be asked by Catalyst magazine to tell the story behind the 7 Billion Actions campaign that we created with UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund. Published by Pratt, Catalyst (formerly Catalyst Strategic Design Review) strives to "stimulate thinking and encourage conversation about the role of strategic design in defining and developing creative economies and thriving cultures for an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable future". We co-wrote the article, which appears in the Designing Peace Issue, to tell the story of the thinking, strategy and tactics behind 7 Billion Actions.

Hurricane Recovery

After a week of a powerless office, and much scrambling for continuity on many fronts - with Patrick running things from Brooklyn last week - we are officially back and up and running. And we are quite appreciative for the patience of our clients while we get back up to speed. 

We feel quite fortunate to have weathered the storm without damage, and our hearts go out to all the small businesses and individuals less fortunate. We do have a couple free desks with high-speed internet and power. If any freelance designers or small businesses are without workspace due to the hurricane, drop us a note at creative@ultravirgo.com.

Graphis Design Annual

I was Googling myself recently. While I failed to find a copywriter looking for work, what I did uncover is even better. Apparently our work was included in the 2005 Graphis Design Annual book (anyone have a copy?). It's always nice to find prestigious international awards that you didn't even know you had won!

Health Portfolio

We just received a shipment from the printer with our 2010 Portfolio of projects for Health industry clients. With 44 pages packed with photos of some of our greatest work for clients in the healthcare, pharmaceutical and related industries, it's a great feeling to look back and see the breadth of projects we have produced over the last few years. With clients ranging from BlueCross BlueShield to Virgil, an innovative nursing home in Los Angeles, we have learned a lot of interesting insights, love working on health projects, and are really looking forward to what 2010 has in store. If you are in a health industry and would like a copy of the book, drop us a line.

Please Welcome Steven
