Just a few hours ago we debuted our fresh, new branding for Style Hatch along with a taste of our full site launching in April. After over a decade of creating sites, campaigns and brand strategies for large brands from Activision to Microsoft, we have shifted out entire studio to create fresh designs for individuals with the goal of helping you show off your inner genius.
We can’t wait to show off everything we have lined up! Now for a few fun facts, since our first theme Backburner we have launched 15 themes, pushed live 109 updates to the themes, and answered 27,697 support emails as of yesterday morning.
A part of the refresh we even had fancy new letterpress cards created just in time for SXSW. Check out a shot of the cards on Dribbble.

Hey look at that… I managed to make it into David’s shot at the far right.
Although it’s still a work in progress, it feels great to have a fresh design live! Also, check out the SXSW Live Blog where I’ll be posting a feed of all the happenings here in Austin. If you’re in town for SXSW make sure you hit me up at @newezra. I’d love to meet as many people as possible.
