In her spare time, Catherine enjoys exercising and hanging out with friends. She is very passionate about sports, especially whenever the Wolfpack is playing. She also enjoys trips to the lake where she can relax and soak up some sun!

We are excited to have Catherine join our team here at Photofy and can’t wait to see what she accomplishes!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Here at Photofy, we are excited to celebrate Cinco de Mayo! Cinco de Mayo is a celebration for Mexico’s unexpected win over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Many people across the United States and Mexico celebrate it.

A day like today involves a lot of celebrating, coming together, and of course taking pictures to commemorate the holiday. Photofy has a bunch of great Cinco de Mayo stickers and designs to enhance your photos for the celebration.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

At Photofy, we absolutely love holidays! They are times to share with family and friends, and create memories that will last a lifetime. And one thing we have learned over the past 18 months running Photofy is that on holidays, people take lots and lots of photos.

Every year on March 17, the Irish and the Irish-at-heart across the globe observe St. Patrick’s Day. What began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating Irish culture with parades, dancing, special foods and a whole lot of green.

At Photofy, we are lucky enough to see tens of thousands of photos being created, using the amazing St. Patrick’s Day overlays we have in our app.  Here’s one of our favorites from today:

Cheers!!!

As President and Co-Founder of Photofy, you’d expect for me to be a huge proponent and user of our platform, which undoubtedly I am!  The team is building the world’s greatest social content creation platform, and we have some amazing new updates coming out in the weeks and months ahead.  But since the launch of our Pro platform, I find myself using the app almost daily to do social posts for a restaurant I own in Raleigh called Piola.

As a restaurant owner, it is critical to keep your customers engaged so that you earn their mind share when it comes to making a dinner decision.  Showcasing beautiful photos is important, but when you can incorporate branding and messaging on the photo you take the posts to another level.  From promoting kids night to beer specials, new menu items or your classics, Photofy Pro truly helps me reap the most benefits from my posts.

Here are some examples of posts I have done in the past few weeks:

Utilizing the collage functionality in combination with Pro, you are able to showcase multiple products while including your logo. These kinds of posts will truly get your customers appetites going, and not make them look twice for who made the post!  And since you are using our Photofy app, the time commitment to create fun and engaging posts is minimal – on average 3-4 minutes from start to sharing on Facebook or Instagram.

Visit our website now to learn more about our Photofy Pro service.  We also offer design services to help create digital assets for you to overlay on your photos, for those who are truly looking for a turnkey solution.  I truly believe this could be the best marketing decision you will make in all of 2015!

A Year in Review: 2014

With 2014 coming to a close, you’ll find a wide variety of people discussing the biggest fads and popular trends on a variety of platforms over the course of this year. As we mentioned in our previous post, even Pinterest hopped on board and posted their 100 most popular pins of the year! Everywhere we turn, we find more and more roundups that include all the things that were hot in 2014.

The World Cup and the Sochi Olympics dominated worldwide as the the highest searched terms for the year, while Jared Leto peaked for celebrity searches. Mobile technology, including phones, consumer drones, and wearable tech like the iWatch also dominated in headlines for the year. It shouldn’t be surprising that different “tips and tricks for taking a selfie” were widely debated, as was where exactly people could buy a hat like Pharrell’s now famous hat. And how about that Flappy Bird, huh?

However one trend that we were thrilled to see on the rise this year, and one we’re hoping will continue it’s upward march, is that of design! The popularity of design is on the rise in all of its forms: from interior decorating to architecture, and from photography to painting; seeing the variety is truly amazing! We take pride in being an accessible platform for people who wish to harness their inner creativity, so we were more than thrilled to see this spike in desire for new and unique forms of design!

Our users have found so many new and exciting ways to enhance their creations, from our filters and collage choices, to our typography and overlay options! As we continue to add to our already wide variety of available choices, we hope to see more and more amazing results! So to end the year, we’ve decided to highlight a few our favorite user creations!

Thanks for creating, and Happy New Year!
– The Photofy Team
