Thank you to our clients

Posted & filed under Boise, Community, Confab, Events.

Our clients, partners, and friends receive enough tins of popcorn, summer sausages, and fancy holiday greeting cards every year. We believe that it’s more important to support the community during this time. We’ve stuck to our tradition of donating to a non-profit organization on behalf of our clients. This donation is a small way for…

Congratulations, Mr. Hanson

Posted & filed under Boise, Events, News.

When I first met Nate, he was about to graduate and start a job search. I’ve always followed the design program at NNU and typically review the portfolios of the graduating class every year. During an annual portfolio review, I ran out of time and didn’t get to meet everyone. I made time to get…

Moving and Shaking

Posted & filed under Boise, Events, News.

To keep up with future growth plans, we’re moving into a new office on Friday, October 3rd. The new space is in the same building (The Eagles Building, 6th & Idaho), but on the lower level. The new Carew Co. mothership is about three times the size, offering lots of room to spread out and…

Making the most of “thank you”

Posted & filed under Boise, Community, Events, Technology.

Earlier this year, we made an in-kind donation to The Cabin (formerly known as “The Log Cabin Literary Center”). Carew Co. is an official sponsor of the Alexander McCall Smith appearance at The Egyptian as part of the annual “Readings & Conversations” series. That said, this blog post is not meant to toot our horns…

A year. In review.

Posted & filed under Boise, Events, New Work, News, Statistics.

Carew Co. was founded on July 1, 2007 — it’s safe to say that we’ve covered some serious ground in our first year: We helped a roster of 28 businesses and organizations during the past year, and found satisfaction in every opportunity. We’ve launched 8 websites (there are 3 currently in production), created 5 logos,…

Martini Mix Off

Posted & filed under Boise, Culture, Events, New Work.

I enjoyed total creative freedom and was able to execute an illustrative concept — something I don’t do as often as I’d like. When I started Carew Co. in July, I called up the folks in charge of the event and volunteered to design the poster. I requested both creative freedom and the ability to…

Fresh Meat

Posted & filed under Boise, Events, Opinion.

Last Tuesday evening, I had the wonderful experience of being a part of “mock” interviews for the soon-to-graduate graphic designers at NNU. I’ve done this a few times in the past, and have always enjoyed it immensely. For this to be a part of any design program is amazing. The students are getting to experience…
