A Product That Reflects Its Maker

Today’s guest blogger is Jayson Bradley, the newest addition to our marketing team.

As the new guy in the marketing department, I write my first blog post only eleven days after walking through the doors as an employee. I thought that I would use this opportunity to give you faithful readers of our blog a small peek behind the curtain into the inner workings of your favorite Bible software company.

I have been a Logos Bible Software user for many, many years, but I had no idea how much the experience of working with Logos Bible Software (the software) would mirror working at Logos Bible Software (the company). Let me give you a couple of examples of what I mean.

One of my favorite things about using Logos has always been the startup sound; it has always seemed so relaxing, almost anticipatory as if it was promising something special was going to happen soon. Walking into the Logos building gives off that same ambience; a simple, classy presentation, the dulcet sounds of reception and a feeling that something exceptional is happening here.

Another thing I have always loved about Logos is the cleanliness of the interface. For such a powerful tool that offers so much, there is a simple elegance you can see right from the home page. In the same way, the main hallway that greets you off of reception also carries an authoritative simplicity; one that is both inviting and inspiring.

In the future I would love to address the operational efficiency, the diversity of roles and applications, the ease of use, and the productivity that I see mirrored already in both the Logos organization and the software that bears its name.

It would seem that the things that I have loved about Logos the software seem to come not just from design but are woven into the climate and culture of Logos the company.

    I thought you were going to say that when you open the door to Logos, you are greeted with the same sound!

  2. Makes me want to learn to program so I can work there. :-)

    I have used the program since ver 1:5 and have taught seminars on its use and power. Yet, every time I read an article or learn some new option it contains, I get excited all over again. I have study multiple Bible programs and none of them measure up.I have it start automatically when I boot up. It provides most of my study material. I just have to save up for the Book Builder so I can start putting other books I have as well as 2-4 drawer filing cabinets full. It looks like I have the rest of my life filled in trying to get it all together. Logos/libronix fan till eternity.

  4. It sounds like Logos is a wonderful place to work, from all I have gathered. But, man, that startup sound…. it’s got a little cheese to it, you have to admit. Too much so for me. Definitely not one of my favorite things about the software.

    And entry to the Bible giveaway entry as you sign into the visitors book?

  6. Hey Kenn, I’ll do you one better. If you (Kenn Iskov) walk through the front door of our offices here in Bellingham during the Great Bible Giveaway I will personally give you one of the Ultra-Premium Bibles!

    You do live in Australia don’t you? :-)

  7. Too far away! Never mind – back to the great Bible collection in Logos! Now, if only we had computer scents we could smell the leather!
