Updates to Portfolio

It’s been a busy busy fall here and I’m are still catching up with updating this site. In the meantime I’ve added a couple recent projects to the portfolio and have more almost ready.

One neat little project that isn’t listed yet are the ads Shayna Englin engaged us to create for the Global Day of Jewish Learning. Pairing their Big Questions with popular celebrities in tiny ad spaces proved challenging and fun. You can see a couple of the ads that are now in circulation below. Read more ›


In transition

Welcome to the first iteration of the new gardner-madras | strategic creative website. I know it looks a bit barren at the moment but there is more to come.

For now it just has the most basic basics while I am busy updating things in the background. You can still see past blog posts, find out a little about the company, or get in touch in the meantime.

Some recent work that I’ll be adding to the new site include: Read more ›


Update on Sprout Builder and Nonprofits

This is basically the same as my comment on my Idealware post about Sprout Builder shutting down.

Something of an update via Facebook fan pages, which I suppose is a sign of the times.

First, in the group Jeff Wassermen started and mentions in the comments on my first post and Johanna mentions on Idealware “Spurned Sproutbuilders Unite!” Carnet did indeed say that all existing Sprout subscribers that are members of the group can get the half price discount ($1500 a year) by emailing info@sproutinc.com with subject line “early adopter discount” . You’ll need to give the email address you used for your Sprout account , if different your paypal email so they can send you a manual invoice. This is because you will need to pay the for the full year up front and they are discontinuing Pay Pal billing.

Also on Beth Kanter’s Facebook fan page there is a reply to Jon Dunn’s post about Sprout’s discontinuation from Michelle Wohl at Sprout saying that they “..are working with existing Sprout non-profit clients on pricing. Please email support@sproutinc.com for info. ” And Beth’s indication that it will be on an individual basis.

The company has expressed their concern for nonprofits and intentions to do all they can to support them in the past, so its likely they will offer some sort of discount for 5013c organizations.

In any case, all nonprofits using Sprout would be wise to contact them soon and see what can be done for your organization.
