A Higher Standard for Website Security

Google has released its newest and most significant browser update – Chrome 68 – which marks all HTTP sites as Not Secure. This is a big step towards ensuring that all internet users can recognize whether a site is safe. GoDaddy offers a nice overview about what this update entails. If you haven’t updated your Chrome browser recently, you may currently be unaware of, or unaffected by this update. However, it’s expected that other browsers such as Mozilla Firefox will be following suit, as part of their HTTPS Everywhere movement.

The first step to securing your website is to purchase an SSL certificate through your website host provider (such as GoDaddy or Bluehost) and install it on your site. Crabtree + Company is available to provide installation support once your certificate has been purchased.

Aside from taking steps to secure your site, you will also benefit from optimized page load times and Google’s automatic search ranking boost which prioritizes HTTPS sites. Once your SSL certificate has been properly installed, your site will display a green lock icon and the word Secure beside your HTTPS URL.

Walter's Word: Assume

Communicating in an increasingly global community, we always have to be careful not to assume that what we know or do is universal. Take a subject dear to my heart; dog talk. Here in American it's bark-bark or woof-woof or even bow-wow. But in Russia it's hav-hav, Japan wan-wan, Belgium wooah-wooah (remember Tintin's Snowy?), Chinese Mandarin wang-wang but Chinese Cantonese wong-wong, and the Netherlands blaf-blaf. Read more

The current temperature is HOT!

Right now the hottest thing in design is contrast. Maybe it reflects a divided country or a reaction to a previously gentler era, but visual contrast dominates every aspect of design these days, from high fashion to magazine layouts to new logos. The question is should you follow or flee it? Read more

"I LOVED working on this Project!"

Susan Mathews
Creative Director

I love it when a client asks, "What do you think?". It doesn't happen often but when it does, I get to give this person the benefit of every job I've worked on for the past 20 years. Read more
