Responsive Web Design Benefits | Velocity Agency | New Orleans

Josh Spencer Velocity News, Web Design

Mobile traffic has been a concern ever since the first mobile browsers came out, which could display links and small images on mobile phones. Today, Responsive Design has taken over and a new wave of improvements to mobile websites is underway. Modern websites can automatically fit any size of display and arrange content accordingly. Responsive design enhances the user experience and creates a perception that they are custom-designed for any device: tablet, smartphone, laptop, or desktop computer.

Leadership 101

Josh Spencer Professional Development, Velocity News

Last week, I traveled to sunny Orange County, California to attend a 5 day conference devoted to Leadership. While I have always considered myself pretty fearless in taking charge in any situation, I also realize that there is always room to grow, and in order to remain competitive, you must constantly work to refine your talents. Lucky for you, I have put together cliffs notes of the top three qualities that define a good leader which were in some way interjected into every lesson taught throughout the conference. While some of these sound like no-brainers, they are actually quite difficult …

Let’s get right down to it – I’m an audiophile.  I’ve never worn headphones that cost less than $200.  I’m a New Orleans musician.  I’ve spent some crucial time in the studio with legends such as Ke$ha and …

SnapChat, silicon’s favorite startup, had taken pride in being a more private and secure alternative to other networks such as Facebook and Instagram.
