2014 Forecast

So are you prepared for the new year? Have you cleaned off your desk of all the leftovers of 2013 and set out to meet your new business resolutions?

Have you even thought about new business goals for this year?

The holidays are over and it is time to roll up our sleeves and get back to work. Time to set out to focus on the goals we want to achieve. It is January 2nd......your behind already! 

Each year it seems that the last one passed us by faster and faster. All the good intentions I had are just a faded memory. Things I wanted to do to market the business, to meet make those expectations a reality. They slip away. Time is short and opportunities are few, don't waste them to the procrastination giant slumbering inside.

Picking up on the heels of a successful 2013, one of our best, IONIC prepares to launch into its most energetic marketing campaign as it rolls into its 15th year of business. In response to the abundance of work in various markets, we have increased our staff of design professionals to accommodate our client's needs. An increase of nearly 40% over this time last year. In addition, we have added to our administrative and marketing personnel to handle both the project management needs of the new construction projects and reaching out to the new markets IONIC intends to increase it's presence in.

With all these new members to our team we had to increase the size of our office. Since we were expanding, we decided we might as well take advantage of the opportunity and create a new working environment. The renovations at IONIC has allowed us to exhibit some creative and innovative uses of materials, lighting and colors. The use of reclaimed elements were aggressively used thoughout the space to present not only our "FUN" side but how we can use sustainability features for our all design projects. Keep your ears open for our announcement on the upcoming open house.

The new year brings IONIC more projects up and down the east coast as well as extending into the Midwest. Our ability to quickly adapt has made us a resource for our national client accounts. Projects that have been sluggish due to the market concerns over the last few years have now gained a foothold and should begin early in the first quarter. Be watching for our job site signs as they pop up all over Hampton Roads.

Whatever your needs, be sure to look us up and talk to us about your potential project. Architecture, Interior Design, Historic Preservation as well as custom residential design are all part of our Strategic Planning portfolios. Our friendly staff will be glad to help. We look forward to a successful 2014 with our clients, contractors, consultants and friends.
Best of wishes to all.
