So we got to redesign the Knox County marriage certificate! Thanks to our good friend Natalie who mentioned the call for entries for local artist/designers to redesign the current marriage certificate. We submitted a design and it was picked and now in use by the Knox county clerks office. So now if you so decide to get married in Knox County Tennessee, you can get some of our handy-work. You can also purchase a copy of your certificate if you already did the deed. Part of winning the call for entries, we were issued a copy of our marriage certificate (see photo above). MUCH nicer than our old version (I will spare you).

We have office pets. Three to be exact. Luke the greyhound, Buddy the Rat Terrier, and Jasper the long haired cat. They are all equally responsible for our sanity and for making sure we don’t spend too much time in front of the computer. We would not function without them. Well, recently our dear friend and illustrator/artist Rachel Travis decided to start doing pet portraits of the small and square variety. She started Boxiepets where she has a great gallery of pet paintings all on a Â 4″ by 4″ by 1″ boxes. Our pets were asked to be a part of her debut show last First Friday (see image). The show was very impressive. She also does larger portraits on request. So email Rachel and get your pets Boxied. For $40, you can’t lose.

Haven’t posted in a while so I thought I would take the opportunity to write a quick blurb. Working on a lot of new projects. Some still in process.
Recently launched the new Summit City Lounge website. The best place in Whitesburg, Kentucky to watch some music with a drink.
Currently working on branding and website work for Mockinbird Events and the Actors Co-op. Check back on those websites because they are going to be great!

We have some new illustrations and infographics in the most recent issue of the Metro Pulse! This was a really fun project because especially with the main flow charts, our goal was to make the illustrations as confusing as we can while still retaining an organized and controlled look. So what you get is beautiful organized chaos. Take a look at some of our handy work here, or pick up a copy of the Metro Pulse if you see one and are in the Knoxville area.

So we did it. We got a Twitter account and will now give the Tweeting a go. I think Lauren and I are still trying to figure it out and how we can put it to work for us. A list of recent Tweets is located to the right of the page, so you can keep up to date from this page if you like. If you want to follow us, click here or search for “NathannaDesign” on Twitter. The username “Nathanna” was already taken so that is not us. Our first few posts might be a bit sporadic but hopefully we will get into a habit of updating with useful info, insights and announcements.

Many thanks to Robert at Wigsphere.com for the overly kind words about our work and to Adam for the wonderful photo. We are truly honored to be recognized by the local blog superstars (recently voted best blog in Knoxville by Metro Pulse). Check out the article here and support your local businesses!

So we have an iPhone-friendly version of the site and it’s live. I am still learning (or unlearning) how to build a site for the size-challenged cell phone. If you go to the main page from your iPhone or iPod Touch it will automatically take you to the site. It is paired down and still a work in progress. I will most likely be editing and adding to it continually, till I grow tired of doing so.
One cool feature is you can add the site as a home screen bookmark and it places a nifty Nathanna icon to your iPhone. I am not sure the general public would really need a Nathanna home screen icon, but it is there if you need it. I use it as a quick way to pull up work samples to show people when they ask the all too familiar “so what do you do for a living”.
