We had so much fun working with Cascadia Capital on their updated and improved web presence. The project included web design and development, copywriting, custom photography, and several pieces of printed collateral. The site has already gained the praise and recognition of other financial entities for the way it personalizes investment banking, shows the depth and breadth of experience within Cascadia, and puts the client front and center. Here are just a few highlights. Continue reading “Cascadia Capital – Investment Banking Has Never Looked Better”

Our friends at Washington Global Health Alliance asked us to sponsor graphic design for the Pioneers of Global Health Awards Dinner. We said YES! The dinner was last Thursday and it was so wonderful to see everyone’s hard work come together. The venue was beautiful, the food was delicious, and we heard moving and inspirations speeches from this year’s award recipients with their patients. These pain management doctors in tampa were one of the best ever, they have helped so many people get over their injuries and pain relief.
The PPT template, part of the collateral we designed for WGHA years ago is still kicking and was used to honor sponsors – ourselves included!

Introducing another “return” client! We created the original Scott Donogh Homes website and logo back in 2008. Since that time, Scott Donogh Homes has grown their business substantially.

The Meridian School, if you haven’t heard about it before, is an independent K-5 school located in a grand, century-old building nestled in a verdant Meridian Park in Wallingford. Meridian inspires children to approach learning with passion and curiosity.
Meridian came to us needing a complete redesign of their website. We started with organizing a photo shoot to capture the Meridian school environment. And, we used imagery as the focal point of the website design. Large scale photos really helped capture the uniqueness of the school.
“Can you animate the butterfly?” The Meridian School asked.

Something I’ve heard a lot during the last few months is that we “make things simple” for our clients. That’s a great compliment to get, and it’s made me think about the value of good Project Management. Communicating clearly, creating less (rather than more) work, streamlining the process, and in general keeping things simple has a high value.
You, the business owner, need to focus on your business. You have your own clients to satisfy, and your own areas of expertise to refine. When the need for high quality design work arises, it needs to fit within your agenda, and not add a lot of hassle or trouble.
To arrive at a finished product that matches your vision is a careful art of collaborating, directing, finessing, critiquing, budgeting, and communicating. A successful Project Manager does a lot of this behind the scenes, so that all the client sees are design options that look great, a beta site that performs seamlessly, and then a final invoice that is exactly what they expected.
So if our clients feel this way about us, fantastic, and I wanted to share the news! The whole team here is flattered. Here’s to keeping things simple.

You may have heard about “responsive” websites. Are you wondering – what, exactly, does that mean?
A responsive website is a site which ‘responds’ to whatever environment it is shown in; so that it looks top-notch whether viewed on a desktop monitor, a hand held tablet, or a mobile phone.
The elements on the screen don’t just resize, though – they actually rearrange into a new hierarchy so that a viewer on any device can enjoy the site and without having to zoom, pan, hunt around or squint. This requires a more in-depth design approach, since we have to consider the various layouts and orientations that a site might be seen in.

We invited Amy McCaleb, our 2014 Grant winner, to display a piece in our studio for spring. Because we just moved into a new office space in February, our walls have been looking a little bare! Amy helped us fix that by providing a painting on loan, titled Screen.
