2013 Webbys honor 4 Tierra projects

Posted by melissa | April 19, 2013

Webby Award NomineesThree major projects that Tierra designed and built for The Poetry Foundation have been recognized by the Webbys this year.

The multi-award winning POETRY app was a nominee in the running for this year’s best mobile app in the Education & Reference category. Now’s your chance to show your love of POETRY. Cast your vote in the Webbys People’s Voice Awards.

The Poetry Foundation’s website, which features the organization’s vast database of poetry, and the Poetry Out Loud website, which supports a national recitation contest co-sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, were named as honorees.

The CW Network app was also a Webby honoree in the Entertainment category for tablets and other mobile devices. Tierra enabled these full-episode streaming video apps to be published from the core Tierra-built CMS that powers CWTV.com. Our work supported Phunware and Digitalsmiths as well as the WBTV Digital Media and CBS groups, who led this project.

Awards for our 10th Anniversary

Posted by jamie | October 10, 2012

W3 AwardWhat a great way to celebrate Tierra’s 10th anniversary in business last month. While we were busy re-launching The CW website, we received news that two of our projects were honored with  Silver W3 Awards in mid-September.

Even better — one of them was for this (Tierra’s own) website, which we re-launched a few months ago.  Hats off to our team that worked on the ‘responsive’ re-design:  Gerard Gualberto, Jennifer Over, Heidi Adams and Melissa Wolff.

The second award was for CWingo — a web-based, bingo-type game synced to on-air CW show broadcasts.  We collaborated with our friends at Warner Bros. to build CWingo in late 2011 and the game was used throughout last season.  It will make a re-appearance this season as well with some upgrades.

So, here’s to the last 10 years of successful collaborations with our clients! Onto the next 10!

Game yourself into good habits

Posted by jamie | October 10, 2012

Habit ListIf you want to maintain good habits or break unhealthy ones, check out Habit List, a beautiful (and effective) new iPhone app developed by our very own Gerard Gualberto.

The app — which is iOS 6 and iPhone 5 ready — “turns your desired habits into a game you play against yourself, and it works!” (twelvetyVA, a happy customer)

Using streaks, reminders, progress tracking and other nice features, the app is really intuitive and fun to use.

In the App Store, Habit List receives high marks and has been ranked as the #3 productivity app in recent months. Download it today and start becoming the better person you know you want to be.

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!
