Friends Of Bosque Del Apache contacted Studio Hill Design to find a solution to an overwhelming problem. The task: replace their existing outdated custom website which was no longer being supported, to a modern website built with future upgrades in mind. Studio Hill Design was able to replace the proprietary database and CMS with a WordPress website that not only remedied the underlying problem but dramatically improved the overall design and user experience. The migration maintained all of the existing content in place, while providing a practical and affordable foundation for growth over time.
We are happy to announce that Studio Hill Design was scored as one of Albuquerque’s Best Web Designers based on more than 25 variables across five categories by Expertise.com. We think it a well deserved recognition indeed.
Thanks Albuquerque! Studio Hill Design has been named one of the top three Website Design Companies in the Albuquerque Journal 2019 Reader’s Choice Awards! With nearly 100,000 votes cast, we think that is super sweet! If your website is in need of some love, Let’s Connect!
GraffitiMundo is Spanish for Graffiti World. And clearly, street art has become a worldwide phenomenon. When I took that fateful tour with GrafittiMundo in Argentina last February, I had no idea it would inspire an entirely new focus for Studio Hill Design. Now, after months of building MurosABQ.com, our website directory of Albuquerque’s high quality murals, the adventure continues. This year, my destination was San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. The local group Muros en Blanco has worked with international artists and Mexican government entities to create an entirely new mural scene in SMdA all since 2012, when murals first became legal.
The following images are a few samples of the hundreds of quality murals that can be seen in this beautiful city. (If you’re in the neighborhood, check out the walking tour offered by Muros en Blanco.) Clearly, Albuquerque has room for more great street art!
On Sunday evening, the city’s first official mural trolley tour took to the streets. In spite of Albuquerque’s first cold snap of the season, a jolly band of locals and tourists boarded the open air deck on one of Albuquerque Trolley Co.’s newset and most exciting services.
Concepted by Studio HIll Design, Mural Fest and Albuquerque Trolley Co., the tour featured at least 50 murals painted throughout the Downtown and Nob Hill areas. Most of those murals can also be seen by visiting MurosABQ.com, Albuquerque’s first and best online mural directory.
View the video from news station KRQE above for the full scoop.
MurosABQ.com (developed by Studio Hill Design) is excited to partner with ABQ Trolley Co. to present the first ever Mural Tour. The narrated tour will feature 50+ murals and public artworks along the downtown, EDo, Barelas, South Broadway and Nob Hill corridors. Be sure to bring a camera!
WHEN IS IT? Sunday, October 14th 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM Departs from Hyatt Regency downtown
Word gets around. Check out this nice little feature on MurosAbq.com from our friends down south. It seems even our neighbors appreciate the unique resource that our local artists provide in Albuquerque. Could a MurosRuidoso be on the horizon?
“Albuquerque is an art-filled city, and street art is such an authentic reflection of our heart, soul and people. These pieces deserve our attention.”
