Welcome to our new site!

Posted by jamie | May 25, 2012

Tierra works hard every day to help our clients solve their problems with awesome websites, apps and the tools that power them.  The irony for us is that we almost never have time to work on our own.

So today, we’re really excited to announce Tierra’s new website — the product of much collaboration between our designers, developers, and strategists in fits and starts over the course of almost a year.  Special kudos goes to Gerard Gualberto, Jennifer Over, Melissa Wolff, and Heidi Adams without whose design, coding, and marketing prowess we would not be able to launch the site today.

Our geeky side makes us proud that the site has been built from the ground up using responsive web design techniques.  So go ahead and  check it out on your iPhone/Android, iPad/Tablet or just resize your browser…it will magically render itself in the best way possible for your screen and orientation.

Better yet, we’re happy to finally have a new and more expansive canvas to showcase all our client work, awards, and other news. You’ll find all our notable projects organized in the Work section, but you can also view by Clients or sort by our various areas of Expertise.

We hope you like our new site as much as we do. Check out some of our recent work or browse around and let us know what you think.

Or get in touch. We’d love to work with you!

POETRY now for Android and iPad!

Posted by jamie | July 13, 2011

We’re really excited to announce that the award-winning POETRY app is now available on Android and an enhanced iPad version. Tierra designed and developed the super-popular iPhone version in collaboration with The Poetry Foundation last year.

The iPhone app was also substantially upgraded when we launched the iPad version in late May to include streaming audio, text-size scaling, poet bios, hundreds of new poems and more. The iPad version includes a big bonus: free PDF downloads for the four most recent versions of Poetry Magazine, the Foundation’s flagship publication.  The Android version has all the same great features as the iPhone app too.

We’re also honored that the POETRY app has been recognized with multiple awards over the past year, including winning in HOW + Print Magazines’  Color in Design 2011 Awards, an Appy Award nod, and others.

So download your favorite version from the App Store or Android Market and check out the “essential app” that hundreds of thousands of others are raving about.  Soon you’ll be reciting poetry aloud in the subway, whispering to your betrothed by candlelight, or simply pondering the wonders of beautiful verse. Enjoy!

App Launch: China Investment Monitor

Posted by melissa | May 6, 2011

Rhodium CIM

During our kickoff meeting with the smart guys at Rhodium Group, Trevor Houser leapt from his seat, grabbed a marker and started sketching out his idea for an interactive map…on the window.

Our collaboration resulted in the successful launch of Rhodium Group’s China Investment Monitor, a web app that accompanies the publication of a major study, An American Door? Maximizing the Benefits of Direct Investment from China, written by Daniel H. Rosen and Thilo Hanemann of The Rhodium Group.

The app gives users an interactive view of Chinese investment in the United States by state, year, industry, investment type (greenfield or acquisition) and ownership (private or government).

The report has been featured in numerous articles, including The New York Times (“As China Invests, U.S. Could Lose”), The Wall Street Journal (“U.S. Warns China Is Closing Up Again”) and The Washington Post (“US: Restrictions on foreign investment are barrier to improving US-China commercial relations”).

Paris Review gets a Rave in The New York Times

Posted by melissa | October 27, 2010

“The Paris Review’s Web site feels, for now, like the best party in town.”

The Paris Review’s Writers at Work Interview Series

“The first issue of The Paris Review under its new editor, Lorin Stein, hit newsstands recently, and it’s a thing of sober beauty.

Mr. Stein’s most radical act since taking over from Philip Gourevitch is visible only on the 57-year-old magazine’s crisply redesigned Web site, theparisreview.org. He’s made the entire run of The Paris Review’s storied interview series, previously almost impossible to find in electronic form, available there, free for the browsing. If there’s a better place to lose yourself online right now, I don’t know what it is.”
