Today, March 8, marks International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate achievements women have made in culture, society, politics, and economics. A day to celebrate their genius, beauty, and wit. This day is also a call for action to lessen the disparity in gender equality—individuals and organizations all over the world are doing their part to rally for equal rights. Here at Tremendousness, we want to mark this special day by celebrating some of our favorite women as queens in the fields they excelled at, because after all, a queen is always a woman and women are always queens.

Have a look and you’ll learn much more, but here are a few bits of information to give you some context: 1.) “Gaslighting” is an abusive psychological manipulation tactic. 2.) The term comes from a 1938 play called “Gas Light” in which a man deceives his wife to cover his crimes. 3.) The term has seen a spike in searches and mentions over the last year—especially in the lead-up to the U.S. presidential election and in the aftermath—so we decided to help explain it.

You get to decide! Well, you get to decide only if you were lucky enough to receive these in a care package we recently sent out to some of our favorite publications.
The first half of this year we went months with our heads down, cranking out new work with great clients—but it’s time to start sharing these projects.
We feel very lucky to be able to work with such a variety of clients doing interesting and important things. Here are few recent case studies.
This year’s judges awarded our Gateway Arch poster and our work on the AIGA 20 Show branding.
St. Louis’ Forest Park Forever wanted an information-filled graphic to compel supporters to donate or to become a full member. Because of our love for (and proximity to—we’re just a block away) Forest Park, we didn’t want to address this in a typical, boring “by-the-numbers” infographic approach.
Tremendous things are in store for you!

It takes a lot of sweat, a lot of time, often a lot of money, and possibly some blood and tears, but most every project eventually reaches that home stretch where you’re just about ready to deliver the final to the customer / printer / manufacturer / whatever. But are you really ready? Below is a checklist to go over after you hit “Save” for the last time—but before you hit “Send.”
This is where a project comes to life—where the content and layout meet color, style, and typography.
It was one year ago today that TMZ published the now infamous “Ray Rice elevator video” in which when the world witnessed the tragic images of professional football player Ray Rice abusing his then-fiancée in an elevator at an Atlantic City hotel. Though horrific to watch, there was one unintended positive consequence: it got people talking about domestic violence, especially on Twitter. Yet in addition to voicing outrage at the incident, many Twitter users had the same question about Rice’s fiancee: “Why didn’t she just leave?”
When you visit St. Louis’s Gateway Arch, which turns 50 this year, and you walk up to its broad metal base you can’t help but be struck by just how huge it is and by how incredibly solid it looks. It’s as if it were always there, and some days it seems like you could stare at it for just as long.
But then you get to go inside it. To see what’s under the skin and behind the scenes. And that’s just what we’re going to do here over the next several weeks—go inside the making of an informational poster and give a peek into our process.
When I graduated college with my degree in graphic design, I figured I was steaming headlong into a world of logos, posters, and tri-fold brochures. But I discovered there was another way to go—a road less traveled.

Describing your big vision or telling your company’s story might seem simple—but don’t be fooled, grabbing and holding people’s attention requires a solid balance of research, storytelling, and design. Slack on any of these and you might be wasting a valuable opportunity. Combine all three into a cohesive story and you’ve got yourself one powerful, persuasive presentation.
Man, I am not good at math. In fact, my nine-year-old daughter recently asked me to help her with her math homework and when I said sure, she replied, “Oh, I was just kidding. You’re not good at math.” So, yeah. But I was completely thrilled to work on this video about the origins and nature of math with educator Jeff Dekofsky from the Saddleback Valley Unified School District in Viejo, California, and the folks at TED-Ed. You know why?
There’s no “math” in it.
