Terra Ferma

Our goal was to renovate the existing site to more closely reflect the company brand. They needed a platform on which to broadcast relevant advice on a variety of landscaping methods. We built a custom wordpress setup that would allow the team members to be discovered and have a voice on the company blog. In the end, we designed and developed a clean, modern, responsive site that showcases the company projects and message.

Petco Park Stadium

Update: We recently updated this site with more modern technology. Previously the site was built using flash, which at the time, was the widely accepted standard for a rich experience. However, with the advent of touch screens and mobile devices, flash has since been replaced with technology and techniques that better fit the needs of today. We implemented responsive design so that the interface would work appropriately on various screen sizes and device types.

The Petco Park Stadium is well known for its baseball games throughout the year. When there isn’t a baseball game scheduled, the stadium and its many venues are available for various other events. From school proms to major concerts, the stadium is booked on a regular basis. However, the problem was that their existing site didn’t really show off all of the available options, nor did it give all of the needed information to interested parties.

Our aim was to create a clean, easy to use interface that would allow a user to quickly move through the various venues and download relevant info, view images, and pricing.

At the same time, the client wanted to have complete control over all venue info, including which areas are listed, pictures, pricing, downloads, etc.

By utilizing a full screen interface, this allowed us to easily show off the photography as well as use panels to show info. We then built a custom CMS or content management system. This gives the client access to the site, and the ability to change anything on the fly. They can upload photos, add descriptions, change the order of venues and categories, and update events.

From its launch a couple years ago, the site has been maintained by the client and has seen thousands of visitors on a regular basis. Additionally, we were awarded a top web design award shortly after its debut.

Biomonde

Biomonde green cleaning services was an enjoyable project. Like many of our sites, this one won an award as well.

When we sat down with owners Johnny and Nicole Falco, it was determined that the overall brand should give a modern, clean feel. We wanted the site to give the idea of a very professional, capable company, but also help the user understand some of the bigger picture on the services offered.

We decided to add a little humor and interest by adding “iphone-like” sliders that would show a before and after, or a “with our services or without.” The characters and the information change to get a rather simple idea across, namely, “green is better”.

We also added a blog where the owners regularly post their latest articles, experiments, and offers.

Lastly, we helped kick off this latest marketing campaign with various offline media and signage. The end result is one of the coolest ‘green’ companies we’ve seen.

Web site Re-Design

You may have noticed that we recently upgraded our own web site.  This has been in the works for the last few months.  It is always difficult being your own ‘client’, since the possibilities are endless.  However, we ended up settling on the idea that our work is most important and we really wanted to show it off.  The former site showed very little in the way of the details that go into a project.  Our aim now is to give a little more insight as to the planning and forethought that go into each of our projects, whether it be a brand redesign or web site.  Have an opinion?  We’d love to know what you think.
