You may have noticed that our website is sprinkled with images of vintage technology. We chose this theme for a few reasons:
- Each image represents an item that communicates, creates or stores content.
- Underscores that many technologies have been around for some time; though perhaps, in a less sophisticated form.
- Reminds us that content and issues related to content have been around for quite some time.
Part of our brand’s story rests in how we acquired many of these images. We wanted a brand outlook that considered not only today’s technology, but that also looks back to history – and what we could learn from the past. Images available from standard repositories didn’t quite fit the bill. So, we came up with a plan to go to antique markets and search for many of the devices you see on our website. As we found particular items—stenotype machine, Morse code key, etc.—we would purchase and subsequently photograph them. And we are continuing our search. If you check back in the future, you will likely notice additional images.
