Well, for a number of years now we have been making our announcements, website launches, etc on this WordPress blog. I have never felt it was ideal as we prefer to use our own solutions if possible and it always struck me as a little ironic that we, a design company, didn’t even design the theme we use.

These days are over. We are very happy to announce the launch of our new website which includes a blog, news, portfolio and more. It’s got a few rough edges which we will be ironing out over the next few days (and weeks and months no doubt!) and we welcome your feedback through the comments here or on our announcement page on the new site.

In an exciting new development for us, we have submitted our first CD to the iTunes Music Store and it has been accepted

In the Company of You is Tina’s third album and her first since she lost her hand in a tragic vehicle accident several years ago. Tina is a very talented guitarist, singer and song-writer and I have often likened her music to something between Dido and Jack Johnson.

With a folk music feel, there is usually a message or story to her songs with some upbeat and happy and others a little more melancholic. All of them on this CD, I think, evoke a feeling of Tina’s recent life journey.

Check it out at Tina Bridgman - In the Company of You … and, if you can, buy a copy to support a wonderful Golden Bay artist.

Lucid Design hopes to be able to help more New Zealand artists promote their music and get it out to the world so we are pretty excited about getting in to the iTunes Music Store.

The Village Theatre now has their full monthly programme available on their website.

The Village Theatre Society Inc. is a  non-profit organisation that has been providing the people of Golden Bay with an entertainment venue since 1987.

The Village Theatre has evolved from it’s humble beginnings to become the venue it is today, with comfortable seating and state of the art projection and sound equipment.

They strive to offer a range of movies that cater to all tastes as well as live shows and events. The venue is also available for hire.

Their website is www.villagetheatre.org.nz

We are looking at moving forward with several large in-house projects and we need someone to join our team who is passionate about web development and has good experience working in Ruby on Rails. Advanced XHTML, CSS and AJAX/Javascript would be great.

We want someone to join our team who is highly motivated and creative and who can take their own initiatives while also being able to follow instructions. We need someone who can think broadly and outside the square and who has a good understand of solid programming ideas.

Applicants do not have to be in Golden Bay and we are open to working remotely however we would prefer to take someone on in New Zealand and we are not keen to go through the process of applying for work permits so New Zealand residency is essential.

If you’re at all interested, please email Galen at jobs@luciddesign.co.nz. Please provide your phone number as I would like to follow up with a phone call if possible.
