Ostriches are Really Dumb and Other Life Lessons from My Childhood The dust rises in his wake and bystanders watch in awe as his powerful, piston-like legs pound the sod — a picture of athletic grace. Long, purposeful strides thrust him through yard after yard, and though the muscles in his strong thighs strain, somehow […]
So, for today’s extremely difficult intellectual homework, who is your (or your brand’s) celebrity doppelgänger? Yes, it sounds trivial, but stay with me — it’s actually incredibly telling. We’ve talked about this a bit before, but the best brands don’t sound like brands. They sound like people… because people love to buy from, learn from, and work with people. […]
I’m an ideas guy. Now and forever, amen. So much so that (my fiancé) Darren may or may not have a code word to get my attention because I’m so often off in another place — thinking, dreaming, scheming. (The code word is “HARK!” in case you’re trying to get through to me and I’m […]
Welcome to this week’s edition of “Things I probably shouldn’t publicly admit!” Last time, we covered my newly-discovered bulk seed secret.

Fun fact: a few months ago, we were contemplating ending our oft both loved and hated newsletter. It had started to feel, honestly, a little like a chore to brainstorm, prep, write and send a newsletter every week, and while we knew we were SUPPOSED to build + serve “our email list” (i.e. you guys!) or else […]

I found TONIC when I was searching for a new site that would communicate my brand clearly and give people a sense of who I am in a polished and beautiful way. I wanted something that would wow my clients, and I believe the my TONIC site definitely has that "WOW" factor I always dreamed of. Since my recent launch, I have had dozens of emails, texts & comments letting me know how much people love the new site. But more than that, people are saying that this new brand represents me perfectly and for that, I am so thankful! The experience of working with TONIC has been incredible, from beginning to end.
I want to express my sincerest gratitude for everything Tonic has done for Roots of Life Photography. For over 2 years, I struggled to figure out what to do with my branding. I was so overwhelmed with wanting to find my own voice, be original and yet stay current. When I saw my template design on your site, I immediately knew it was the ONE. In fact, I gasped. The clean lines, overall elegance & classic nature of the template has really helped take my work to that next level. I have gotten so many compliments on the website, blog and mobile site & I am over the moon happy with my decision to go Showit & Tonic.
I'm not so much a cocktail girl as I am a Lagavulin 16 year single malt girl, and was impressed by the cleverness of the "sites on tap" theme at Tonic (genius!)... After browsing the site collection, the Paloma design immediately caught my eye! The layout was fantastic, and I could visualize my own images while browsing their sample site. While I was initially intimidated by the learning curve, with the help of the Showit Support studs & Jen, I was able to customize my site to fit me perfectly. I've gotten amazing feedback on the my site from clients and photographers, and am so giddy that my new website is live! It's a fresh and wonderful feeling to have a professional looking website that reflects my personality!
My tonic site is clean and professional. I had purchased templates in the past, but customizing this website with Jeff has completely transformed my brand. The hardest part of the process was probably choosing the template that was right for me. They are all incredibly well designed and so different from one another! I ended up going with Rendezvous. The template itself was already unique, gorgeous and super user-friendly, but the tweaking for my brand took it to another level. I am so thankful I (finally) found and invested in a TONIC website - I am completely obsessed with my website and get compliments from clients and other wedding vendors constantly!!
