Our 2012 Resolution: Be Even More Awesome

Happy 2012 to all our clients and friends! It’s been a very exciting year at Ilfusion, full of new projects, new people- and even new websites. Our own website redesign was originally set to launch today, but it may be slightly delayed as we are prioritizing the needs of our clients ahead of our own…and we have six of their websites in development- just one sign of how great a year we’ve had!

Please check back for the new design soon. In the meantime, we thought that we’d share a few of our employees’ New Year’s Resolutions. We think you’ll find them…enlightening.

El Jefe: Set fewer cars on fire.
The Inventor: Finish writing my novel.
Wish Granter: Buy a jetpack!
The Genie: Genetically engineer purple horned frogs.
Word Warrior: Befriend a chupacabra.
The Doctor: Complete my oil painting series, Whales with Sassy Smiles.
Code Master: Break less hearts in 2012.

Thanks to all of you for helping Ilfusion have its best year ever, and be sure to stay tuned to us for more good times!
