Thoughts on Winter

In The Bleak Midwinter | The Fresh Exchange

The chill of the air. The stillness of the evening. The flickering of the lights on the tree as they dance off the shiniest of ornaments. The sound of an old favorite holiday record crackling from age and years of spreading cheer. The beauty of a warm meal on a cold night that is enjoyed by candle light. The smell of cinnamon. For that matter the smell of pine and balsam. The raised glasses to…


Wild Measure Site is Live | The Fresh Exchange

image by: Eric Ryan Anderson After 2 years, nearly 30 clients, and countless hours of planning, the full Wild Measure website is now live. Earlier last week we quietly removed our “temporary” landing page we had up for 2 years, and launched the full site. As we did in the Fresh Exchange redesign, we created numerous site designs and re-designs to finally land on the final version of our now live site. We began by creating a huge site with many…

We actually recently began our Thanksgiving day this way with my family last week. For me, there is no better way to recreate…

Wild Measures: Taylor Bruce of WildSam Field Guides | The Fresh Exchange

A few weeks back we shared about the WILDSAM Field Guides and their exciting contest where they are giving away a trip to one of their Field Guide cities. In an attempt to learn more about WILDSAM’s story, today we wanted to dig deeper and open the doors to discovering how and why Taylor Bruce, the creator and editor of WildSam, set out on this adventure. Taylor’s story involves winding roads while driving the southern states to expose…

Around Town with Proper Assembly + a Cyber Monday Deal!

Around Town with Proper Assembly | The Fresh Exchange

Moving to a new city has been an adventure. We feel lucky to have moved to a place where we had established relationships to build upon, but it still has been an adventure for me to learn how to live in a city after so many years in the woods. At times I miss the stillness and remote life of living outside of a city. I grew up in small towns and the country, so…
