The Omni Group hires Blue Flavor

Or, as our web developer, Kenny Meyers, put it: World’s Best Software Company Hires World’s Best Design Company.

The Blue Flavor crew is proud to announce our newest client; The Omni Group, a Seattle-based software company known for such reputable products as OmniFocus, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, OmniPlan, OmniWeb and more!

The Omni Group shares our philosophy that work should be fun, and that employees should love what they do - they’re a great company and we couldn’t be happier about this project.

We’ll be redesigning their website, e-commerce site, forums, and blog—we’ll let you know when everything launches. I’m willing to bet that somewhere along the way, there will be a Rock Band challenge between our team and theirs… Stay tuned!
