We Got A Facelift

Welcome to the new NJI Media website! We recently changed offices and with that thought we could do with a fresh coat of online paint if you will. After launching our website last week, we are finally able to show off our great agency and the work everyone does in the Warehouse. Not to mention we had a lot of fun building the new site from concept to launch. A few highlights to look out for as you poke around: When it came to design we focused heavily on imagery, highlighting the custom illustrations even further with clear, concise copy. This is […]

Hello from the new office!

NJI Media has officially moved and we’re excited to show off our new digs! After moving last week and taking some time to set up the shop, we were able to throw a friends and family happy hour last night to christen the new space because nothing says home like clinking glasses (but don’t worry, there will be more parties). However, it is still a little hard to believe that we’re actually here; it feels a little like the first day of school each time we walk in. New classroom, fresh school supplies, but still the same great crew – […]

No Blue Edges?

Today we were very excited to receive a shipment of our shiny, new NJI business cards. We felt like Christmas had come early. Until we realized that there was something wrong. Something very wrong. Our cards were missing the blue edges we had ordered and that we had to send them back to get the edges printed. Our emotional roller coaster went something like this: When the business cards arrived: So excited And then we realized there were no blue edges: #Fail And then we had to hand in our business cards: Sad How I feel about no blue edges: […]

NJI’s Day at DC Week

Last week Thursday I was lucky enough to represent NJI Media at Digital Capital Week’s core conference with the rest of our team. NJI sponsored the event and the team had a great time hanging out with our office mascot, the NJI Panda, and talking with folks from the district’s digital scene. I think everyone else at the conference had fun meeting our panda and grabbing a few of our notebooks to jot down what they learned in the sessions throughout the day. If you got your picture with the panda, you can see it in our DC Week slideshow […]

Food Truck Facts: This Infographic Will Make You Hungry

Everyone in the DC area loves food trucks. Well, almost everyone. As the District continues to add regulations that restrict our favorite rolling restaurants, NJI Media decided to take a closer look at the role they play in our community. It was a daunting task that meant hours of research and eating an inordinate amount of delicious food. In order to produce this snazzy infographic, we teamed-up with the DC Food Truck Association and were able to uncover some surprising facts about the trucks. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the FTA and are looking forward to the next great project within the DC community and […]

Welcome Natalie Shultz!

The whole crew is celebrating today for Josh Shultz and his wife Robin on the newest addition to their family, Natalie Baker Shultz. Born this past Saturday, Sept. 8, Baby Shultz weighed in at 7lbs. 3oz. and is 19 inches long. Everyone is looking forward to seeing Natalie sport some NJI blue and help her dad make executive decisions. And we’re guessing she’ll like cupcakes as much as we do. Congratulations Josh!

Creating a Successful Mobile Strategy

Smartphones have become a way of life. With over 50 percent of all mobile users opting for smartphones, and over 40 percent of internet traffic coming from mobile devices, a mobile strategy is no longer just a consideration, it’s a necessary part of any digital campaign. It’s also something that is not going away. Another 1.2 billion smartphones are estimated to enter the market in just five years. As such, we’ve noticed a blitz in mobile tactics with the political conventions these past few weeks and the presidential election around the corner. More and more political groups and news organizations are […]
