New Logo, Product Name, & Website… oh my!

Perfect Timing With the product launch fast approaching, the team at Steer has been secretly hashing out some big decisions surrounding not only our product -- but our brand; and with a new look to our UI (revealed by the end of the week), that takes into account an unforgettable experience, we thought about what else we could do to make this first introduction to the world special.
