Hello 2017!

Our last post went over some of our plans for the future as company. To reiterate:

Website Overhaul Coming Soon

Tower21 Studios will no longer be offering web design or web application development services starting Q1 of next year. Our firm is simply too small to compete in the growing global market that already surrounds those two services. Instead we will be focusing our business on B2B branding services, web hosting, and (more importantly) web publishing.

Zion: Genesis Put on Hold

Zion: Genesis Put on Hold

For months I have been splitting my time between working on Zion and working on MomoKO, but, of late, have not been too successful managing both. Not to mention the fact that I have not started with the WebComiX software that Tower21 needs in order to publish Zion. As such, I am announcing an indefinite hold on the project!

Zion needs your support

Zion needs your support

I am the CEM and founder of Tower21 Studios Limited and the author for our first WebComiX, Zion. For some months I have been splitting my time between working here at Tower21, working on my comic, and working a part-time job. This has become too much for me so I have decided it best to work full-time on my comic while still helping Tower21 open new revenue streams.

Zion: Genesis Enters First Production Phase

Zion: Genesis Enters First Production Phase

You may have noticed our new home page with a poster for Zion: Genesis, the first episode in a three episode set of comics. You can read more about Zion on our home page, so we won’t bore you with all of those details. Instead I’d like to inform you that we have begun the first production phase of the first issue.

Tower21 is more than a design firm

Tower21 is more than a design firm

Our goals have been large and lofty since we started our journey. Tower21 Studios began as a design firm helping others build their identities by providing logos, web sites, and more. This has been one goal of ours, but as you may be aware, this was not our only goal.

We are updating our pricing!

We are updating our pricing!

In an effort to better serve the needs, including financial needs, of our clients and potential clients, We have made further changes to our Schedule of Rates and Fees. We have decided to cut prices on many key services. We have done so in an effort to be more competitive. I would like to stress that the change in pricing is not a reflection of a change in the quality of service we provide. It is merely a measure to help make our services more affordable.

New layout now online

Our new layout is now up! Since we last updated our preview we have added a showcase area to our template. The showcase area allows us to put relevant examples of our work on each page, and, for the contact page, allows us to put category examples next to the form.

New layout coming soon

A quick look at our analytics shows that a lot of users are bouncing out of our site. While we can’t be sure why this is occurring, we guess it is either a) because or site’s design isn’t considered a modern design, or b) users are having problems navigating the site and simply give up. For a web-design firm neither of these are excusable. So, we are releasing a new layout for this site that should look better and make navigation easier and more discoverable.

We are Severing Ties with Paypal

We are Severing Ties with Paypal

It as come to our attention that Paypal, will be updating it’s [user policy] effective 1 Jul 2015. We had acquired a Paypal account after buying SaxtonSolutions LLC which we have been using to process payments for clients who wish to pay by credit or debit card. Unfortunately the new policies (see [section 15] paragraph 5) are in direct opposition with Tower21 Studios Limited’s mission as well as the future aspirations of our company.

Welcome Custom Disposal LLC

Welcome Custom Disposal LLC

Last week we started work for a new client [Custom Disposal LLC], a roll-off truck and disposal service based out of Eaton, CO. I have spent the last week working with the owner to develop a new WordPress theme for him and have finally finished that portion of the project. I will now begin setting up a WordPress site for him.

For those of you who are not aware, I came from a company called SaxtonSolutions. SaxtonSolutions officially closed its doors on the second of this month. Tower21 is in the process of assimilating our assets, but today we closed down the SaxtonSolutions server and website.

Be Careful on April 1

In most of the world, the first of April is a day for jokes and pranks. Even big businesses are getting in on the fun. deviantART, an art-focused social network, has been releasing bogus news articles or doing some pretty weird things with their site every year since as long as I’ve followed them, but this year many other sites and companies have also joined in the mix. T-Mobile is apparently extending family plans to pets and Burger King has released a limited edition whopper perfume.

A bit about MomoKO 2.0

For those of you who have been following me since my days at SaxtonSolutions, you know we had a little pet project, or I should say, I had a little pet project there. She is a simple, easy-to-use, easy-to-expand Content Management System known as MomoKO. MomoKO 1.5 was released months ago and we are nearing the release of MomoKO 1.6, but what I want to talk about is MomoKO 2.0.
