WOW. We had an AMAZING summer at ArtistUpgrade. An amazingly BUSY summer! (Yay!)
Just in a few short months, we crafted nearly 30 new brand strategies and launched over 25 new websites. Not to mention, our existing clients kept us busy with continuing website updates and upgrades (which means YOU were busy, too!).
Busy is good and we couldn’t be happier. Sadly, our dear old blog was a little neglected during the summer months. (Sorry blog and avid blog readers!) We finally had some time to catch our blog back up to speed! When you get a chance, take your time and have a look through our most recent website launches.
