Welcome to the Empire
It's been a little over a year since we banded together and created GVEMPIRE as you see it today. It's been one long adventure since then with many different kind of projects, problems, and people.
Of course, as with all good things, there were times when everything wasn't so great. Tight project deadlines, scope changes, and uncooperative clients are some things we don't enjoy. These are the things that people don't show you about running their business. We've looked back at our mistakes (as well as our wins) and tried to further develop our process in a way that keeps everyone happier.
This leads us to our first update of the year...
A New Workflow
We've talked and listened to clients and revamped our entire process to make it easier for everyone involved.
From now on, all of our projects start with a Notion doc similar to this one.

Inside, you can find everything you need related to the project including.
- Project Roadmap and Timeline
- Contracts and related Documents
- Design Files
- Links/Accounts for services attached to the project
Along with a notion document, every project will get it's own Slack channel in our internal channel. This allows you to have direct access to our team whenever you need them and allows us to move away from our current email/slack system and towards a more efficient workflow.

A New Home
Sometime in the next few weeks you're going see a new look around here.
While we all have come to love the current site at gvempire.dev, we have outgrown it's scope, added new services, and rebranded from a static site agency.
These all add up to very large changes that the current site just can't keep up with.
Watch out for the announcement on social media.
Which lead us on to our next update...
New Open Source Projects
We're happy to announce two new contributions to the Open Source Community!
gatsby-starter-gvrecruit and gatsby-starter-gvsass
For those of you that don't know what a Gatsby Starter is, you can find out more here.
They're essentially a streamlined way to bootstrap common projects.
Feel free to open issues, and contribute with your ideas.
Behind the Scenes
This year, we want to bring you a closer look into GVEMPIRE.
blog posts, youtube videos, live streams and more
We want to share what we've learned after over a year in business. We want you to know what it's like to build software in today's climate. We want to grow our community to more than previous clients.
If you're not already, be sure to follow us on all social media platforms @gvempire.
We look forward to seeing you!
That's all we have for now. We hope you're having a fantastic year.
We'll see you on the other side.
