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!

The Poetry Foundation’s POETRY iPad app — designed and built by Tierra — is a finalist in this year’s Digital Ellies, sponsored by ASME (The American Society of Magazine Editors).
We are thrilled to be in such good company in the Utility App category along with Cooking Light, EW.com, New York and Time.
If you haven’t already, we invite you to join over a quarter of a million people who have taken the POETRY iPad app for a spin.
Congratulations to our clients and longtime collaborators at The Poetry Foundation!

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!
