Our ears and eyes light up when we hear phrases like “push the envelope” and “non-traditional” or “something unique that we haven’t seen before.”
These types of descriptors are a designer’s dream, as well as an exciting challenge. When Silverdraft approached us for a website redesign, Tim Tiscornia, President of Silverdraft, was speaking the truth when he said “I set the bar high.” Continue reading “Silverdraft – Telling a Unique Supercomputer Story”

Our genesis as a company (about 13 years ago!) was creating logos and simple websites for small businesses. Over the years we’ve worked extremely hard, and have been lucky enough to expand, improve our skills, and grow our business to be able to serve the complex web design needs of larger corporations and non-profits as well. However, it has remained an important part of our mission and our studio’s DNA to continue to serve business owners who are looking for something beautiful that won’t break the bank.

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”
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. They came to us with several new neighborhood “plat” developments in progress, and they needed signage, flyers and price sheets, logos for each neighborhood, and of course – a new website.

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.

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.

When the owner of The Center for Psyche & the Arts, LLC approached us, she was frustrated with trying to customize an existing WordPress theme on her own. This happens often – it appears that to the ambitious, savvy user, these things should be doable without much trouble. However, the opposite is true. To really get the aesthetic, flexibility, and tools you need, it’s important to bring in a professional. (Wink wink. That would be us.) And of course, the bonus is that you get a website that not only works exactly as you want, but it also looks great and matches the identity and personality of your business!
