Take ONE, Give ONE

We want YOU to help US start something that matters. What is ONE thing that every person has? TIME. Each and everyone of us has 24 hours every day. But what we choose to do with that time, is what really matters. It’s a contest!

Our Top Business Apps

Our schedules are always run-and-gun, which means iPhones and iPads are essential components in our arsenal of communication and design tools. We frequently find clients, friends and colleagues asking how we are able to manage so much work when we’re out of the studio.

It’s a Contest!

On January 16th, we will be hosting an online contest for a chance to win your own copy of Blake Mycoskie’s Start Something That Matters. Sign up, follow us on Twitter, or join us on Facebook as we reveal what matters and how you’ll help us make it happen. See you back here in January.

Our Best Reads of the Year

Whether you are thinking of starting a new business, have owned your business for years, or are interested in changing the business you are in….here are five new reads for 2011.

Our 2011 Book List

It’s that time of year again. We had great feedback last year from our “Best Reads of the Year” post. This year our book list has grown. Each book offers a different insight: rethinking business, how to live and work in a meaningful way, as well as highlights one of our favorite re-imagined living environments – New York’s High Line Park.


With the holidays upon us, thoughts of giving, spending time with family and holiday meals fill our heads. But think how much impact the holidays could have if what we choose to give has minimal impact on the environment, supports a great cause or possibly solves a problem. This holiday season, try your hand at UpGifting. These companies make sure the product you purchase has a bigger impact than just the initial happiness granted to the person that opens your gift.

Small Business Saturday

As we approach two years in business, we continue to be big supporters of our fellow Small Business Owners. So this Saturday, November 26th, join us as we participate in Small Business Saturday. Make a big impact by choosing to shop with one of your local shop owners.

PARK(ing) Day FtL 2011

How did we unpave a parking space and put up a park? Some serious sweat equity, a good game of phone tag with City officials and about $130

Behind the Scenes

We had a close friend and fellow designer call the other day to congratulate us on our recent accomplishment in Jefferson Parish. He then said “so why do you think you won?” We believe there were two primary reasons: The solution was both inclusive and digestible.

Cadence Awarded First

There won’t be any problem finding $30,000 to pay the Florida consortium that designed a playground, volunteer plaza and botanical walk as part of the winning contest entry to beautify the West Esplanade Avenue drainage canal in Metairie.

Your Environment

At Cadence, we know that every project we work on affects the lives of others. Each decision we make must be thoughtful. We’ve also found that whatever the purpose or size of the space, a few key ingredients are universal to creating meaningful spaces.

Fast Design Isn’t Good

Great design isn’t easy. It takes something out of you: time, energy, effort, creativity, and heart. But the good news is that as creative professionals we have the capacity to give all of those…and give well, creating great places and legacies that are not fast and futile, but slow and enriching for those around us.
