Fresh Tilled Soil: A Year in Review


Every now & then, it’s useful to take a look at yourself to assess your current accomplishments & future goals.  It’s something that happened inadvertently to me while working on entering Fresh Tilled Soil as an entrant in some local achievement awards, and so I thought I’d share 10 highlights of the cool stuff we’ve done as a company in the past year.

  1. was featured on a number of websites that gave us props for our site design, both before & after our recent redesign (but mostly after!) Some of the sites we were featured on are:,,,, & Thanks to you all for recognizing us!
  2. Fresh Tilled Soil got listed in the Alltop directory under the design category.
  3. Our team had guest blog posts on lots of sites including InspiredM, ThinkVitamin,, & more than once on  Thanks for welcoming our thoughts, guest blog hosts.
  4. We came in 8th place in the design category for the annual shorty awards—all thanks to the much appreciated votes from our friends & supporters : )
  5. We helped a bunch of entrepreneurs bring their companies to life with prototypes and web app designs.  (We’ll limit ourselves to two examples:)
    (a.) We were especially proud of the high compliments we received from an industry audience about the Brightgauge prototype we designed, who called it: “the of the IT industry”
    (b.) One of our more publicized efforts was in working with RetireLife to build their web based start up; they were subsequently featured in as one of ten hot start ups in 2010.
  6. We started a new green initiative that we called Project Growth, where for each client project we completed, we gave a donation to American  that was used to plant five trees.
  7. All of our designers received membership invitations to Dribbble , a web community where constructive criticism is shared amongst professional designers.
  8. interviewed our very own Richard Banfield, and published it on their website.
  9. Our Google ranking for the term “Boston Web Design” is now #3 on the first page of Google– a drastic improvement from a year ago.
  10. We have two brand new additions to our team whom we love & value dearly: Mike & Kelly.

So far so good, and we’re aiming even higher for our goals this upcoming year.
