The Roadtrip

Taylor’s about to embark on a tour of the United States following his graduation. I don’t know what scares me more–the vehicle they plan to drive thousands of miles, or the drivers who plan to operate it. I don’t have a lot of good things to say about their recently purchased 1993 Mercury Tracer other than that it has a tremendous amount of “character”. I’ve only ridden in it once, and we later realized that the whole time we were driving with the emergency brake on. As soon as I found that out, I felt some sense of relief and thought, “Well that might explain the screeching sound coming from the back tire…” Turns out it didn’t explain anything. The car’s just a piece of junk. Whatever the case may be, the car is covered in advertising! Honk if you pass them!

One Step Closer…

School’s out, the shoeboxed team continues to grow, and the we’ve got a new logo. We’re making some serious progress.

After a rough week of final projects, papers, and exams, the team has bounced back and is working around the clock to make bigger and better. In the past, we’ve always had schoolwork and extracurriculars looming over us–and at times we were forced to pass our classes. Well, I’m excited to announce that everyone has made it through another year–and shoeboxed is our one and only priority. No distractions. No excuses. It’s frightening. Someone please remind us to sleep. And just as we have put 100% of our energy into shoeboxed, we have recruited several new additions to the shoeboxed team. They are already proving to be tremendously valuable additions to the team. This summer couldn’t get much better.

And then there’s the hot new logo. What can I say? We all need a makeover every once and a while. And this is just the beginning–the entire shoeboxed site will have a fun new feel. Now that we have much of the shoeboxed backbone completed, it’s nice to finally be able to start focusing more on our branding efforts and the overall user experience.
