Summer

Hello everyone. Happy Summer! As we all keep trying to balance work with the craziness of Summer, this is a simple reminder to “Stop and Smell the Flowers”.

It’s so easy to get caught up in work or the news or even in business. But too often we forget to take time to have some fun and go out into the great outdoors and enjoy the warm weather. Before we know it Fall will be here and then the snow will be flying. Time goes fast and everything changes constantly.

Here at Hannes Design, we are moving forward with new clients, new designs and new technology. But we try hard to refresh by taking some time to enjoy the outdoors too. I hope you all enjoy the season – and give us a call if we can help you with your next design project.

New Location

As some of my clients have already heard, starting on January 1st, 2022 our office will be moving to a new location at 609 Engelhart Drive.

Some of you have asked about this move – I will briefly explain. The office space we currently have is within the offices of Restaino & Associates Realtors on Madison’s westside. They currently have a very large office (two floors) with many offices. Due to the Covid pandemic, many agents are working from home and thus the larger office space isn’t used as much as in the past. They will be relocating as well at the end of the year. As a result, I am in the process of moving my business to the above address as well. I will still receive mail and can meet with clients at the 26 Schroeder Ct location through the end of 2021. In early 2022, I will let you know where the new office location for Restaino will be located and if I will move my offices there or remain at the 609 address. Thanks for your understanding during this transition.

Holding Strong

Looking back at my last blog – from 2018 – I couldn’t just leave that there being that its three years old. Ironic though, as the post said “Are Blogs Dead?” Maybe not, but in this case not well utilized. Anyways, the last few years have been difficult for all with Covid and a worldwide pandemic. We at Hannes Design are holding strong and doing our best. I have some plans for some upgrades and improvements and so far 2021 has been a better year than last. I’ve seen a number of clients lose their businesses, and I appreciate all my clients each and every day. Contact us today if there is something we can help you with.

Are Blogs Dead?

I assume most people think the same thing I did when I built my website – “Should I have a Blog?” I chose to do one but clearly looking back, I like others do not post often enough to create interest. Its been 1.5 years since my last post – that’s crazy. But as you all know time goes fast. We all make priorities and blogs just aren’t one of them. So are they dead? I think in some businesses and industries they are. If you are in a business where constant communication is key, they could be important. But I believe most have been replaced by a Facebook page. So much easier to keep up on.

So I’ll let you tell me. Do you read this? Do you think I should keep this page? I take no offense either way. I plan on doing some website updates soon. I’ll decide then whether or not to keep this page. Feel free to contact me with your opinion.

2017 is here!

I can’t believe the new year is upon us already. It definitely came here quickly. As like so many of my clients, I have not been the best at keeping up with my blog. You know what? That’s OK. I’ve been busy keeping my files and software up to date and delivering high quality design to my clients.

Speaking of clients – I have a few new ones that I think you should check out and watch for future changes with them during the year. First is Savvy Woman Secrets magazine. I started working with them last year and the holiday issue was my third issue that I was deeply involved with. This is a great Dane County area magazine featuring many wonderful businesses. The holiday issue even had a secret section that featured some amazing deals. Another new client is Jada’s Garden & Greenhouse. Jada has been doing personal gardening and landscaping for some time and does amazing work. She will be opening a new Greenhouse in the Mount Horeb area sometime this year. Watch for more information on her website www.jadasgarden.com which we were very proud to work on.

Lastly, I hope you all have a great 2017. I look forward to working with you all and hope it is a wonderful year!
