Jan 8 2008

As you may have previously read on our blog, RD2 and Lucid have worked together in the past on everything from space plans (for our new space station going up in the third quarter) to some pretty exciting websites. For our latest endeavor together, Rene Gracia had been talking to Rees Associates about a complete website overhaul. Knowing it was going to be an interesting task, Rene called on RD2 for some ideas.

There are plenty of tools to help you plan, budget, track, and otherwise mange projects. They range from heavy scheduling tools like Microsoft Project and OmniPlan, to communication and organization tools like Basecamp and Backpack, to generalized tools like Excel, to even things as simple as Post-its. On a large project I’m working on, we’ve used all of these in some form or another; and while they’ve been a help, they all share a common flaw...

RD2 Is Hiring

Mar 30 2007

We have been in business for around 40 months now. From a business point of view we have been careful about our growth. From a work standpoint, we have been aggressive. We have pushed the envelope in a number of ways and the quality of our work is very strong. We are proud of what we are doing here at RD2. Soon, we will be updating our portfolio and making posts about new brands, web sites and campaigns.

In the off-chance that any of you are potential future team members, we would like to get to know more about you. We don’t hire fast...
