We are stoked to announce the crazy little adventure that has been the past two weeks of our lives. Here’s the skinny…

Mobile Digs.

Most people that have some sort of online portfolio (insert photographers, graphic designers, architects, interior designers, hand models, marketing firms, etc.), all have portfolios based in Flash. Problem being that Flash doesn’t work at all on mobile devices (insert iPhone, Blackberry, Google Android, etc.) 

Until now. (insert Mobile Digs). 

We have created a super easy, yet totally good looking solution so that when someone visits your online portfolio from a mobile device, they are automatically redirected to this awesomely gorgeous, yet totally speedy lil’ new portfolio that actually works on said mobile device. (insert applause). 

So please, stop by our new site and check it out. Say hello. Tell your friends. Tell all your friends. Even tell your Aunt Myrtle. Heck… buy a copy for yourself. 

We are thrilled about this new adventure. 

For the many lovely friends we have at this here blog… (all 18 of you :)) we thought we’d throw out a little love. When checking out use the coupon code brightenlovesyou and save half off. (Normal price is $39 bucks. That means you get a swanky new iPhone friendly site for less than 20 bucks. Score.) 

Feel free to pass that code around to anyone else whom you might think will enjoy it. We’ll keep that code good till February 27th. 

And much thanks to my buddy Chris from Anova Solutions, who spent an ungodly amount of time helping get this thing ready over the past two weeks, so that we could spread the word at WPPI. You are an unreal dude and I can’t wait to share a drink with you soon. Thanks bro.

    Jarrod Shappell - Genius.

    The Harms family is an entrepreneurial machine.

    Go get them friends! Once I have something worth having a mobile version of, I will definitely give you my $40.

    joshyd - ben+whitney. WOW! the brilliance that is Harms is unrivaled! question: does this handy dandy product of yours only work for flash galleries? Any chance of making it play .swf MOVIES? We videographers need a solution too 😀

    ben (i run this here blog) harms - mobile digs works completely independently from any site-be it flash or otherwise. the reason flash sites don’t work on an iPhone is that a flash site, actually is a .swf movie file embedded in the page (which mobile devices can’t read). but the awesome deal is that you can create links on your homepage that link directly to youtube videos, and those will automatically load into the youtube application on an iphone-which looks super sexy.

    so its right up your alley mr. daniels!

    joshyd - So, to clarify (and I apologize for doing this on your comments page, lol), I would basically set up an image gallery that linked to uploaded YouTube versions of my video samples, etc? That sounds wicked cool. You may have made a believer outta me (not that i ever doubted you).
