Heavy Robot Invades Japan

Posted in company update, japan, working abroad

Heavy Robot in Japan

Ok, ok, invade may be a little over stated.  Starting the new year off a little differently though, and I am in Japan for about a month.  I'm in Japan for most of January, but will be returning on the 24th, and resuming work likely on the 25th (jet lag not withstanding).

Pixel Perfection

If you are anything like me, you recently caught yourself wondering, "How can I create a 28' x 20' pixel art mural without needing an advanced degree in some boring subject?"  Well, congratulations, we are both in luck.  Enter Heavy Mural by Heavy Robot (of course).

Coast to Coast

Posted in company update, florida, move, seattle, tampa, travel

This past summer, Heavy Robot moved it's primary location from Seattle, WA to the Tampa, FL area. For a lot of businesses, this would signal a major change and reworking of the business. Not so for Heavy Robot. We have continued to function with very few differences since the move.

Hello (again) World!

Posted in company update, drupal, new design, riverbend, website

It's been a long coming, but Heavy Robot finally has a proper website! Our old site was built as a stop gap solution to show clients that needed to see examples of our work what we had done, and was never intended to live on more than a month or so. This year, we finally managed to eek out some time to build a "real" website, with an About Us, Blog, Contact pages and everything!
