Take 2: A Billboard, Reimagined

It can be easy to underestimate the value of a billboard.

We see this a lot – an ineffectively-designed billboard, because someone [ view the rest ]

TQS: Our Summer Of Plans

It’s that time of year again. The time of year when TQS-ers begin talking non-stop about our summer plans. I wanted to provide a healthy outlet for this non-stop chatter (because some of us have work to do, like writing this blog), so I let everyone tell me all at once about the best and [ view the rest ]

Capital Heat: New Addition Gifts

At TQS, we believe that great marketing takes nuts. That doesn’t always mean taking huge risks. Sometimes, you just need to be two degrees off-center to make someone take pause and remember you.

A new drawing tablet, the Slate 2

The New and Improved TQS

Sometimes the things you love most go away. You know what they say: if you love something, let it go. If it comes back it’s yours, if it doesn’t it never was. This doesn’t completely apply here, but we’re excited to tell you that TQS News is making like The Terminator and it’s back! And [ view the rest ]

Video Killed The Marketing Star

You’ve got :10 to hook your audience. What do you do? Interesting graphics? Stunning video? A compelling opening line? Do you go for comedy? The emotional tug? The relatable anecdote? A clip of a great dog? A clip of a terrible cat? Video advertisements have the highest click-through rate of all digital formats. But studies [ view the rest ]

Capital Heat Rebrand

Capital Heat, an area leader in geothermal heating technology (which is even cooler than it sounds), needed an updated look to match the cutting-edge technology they use every day in the HVAC industry.
