Danny Liston

Danny Liston is a rocker from way back – with roots as the lead singer of Mama’s Pride ( a band hat toured with with rock legends such as Lynyrd Skynyrd) Danny’s southern rock style is sure to please.  Danny’s most recent album, No Other Name, was the basis of the new site design.  Using the album artwork, the style was both rich and edgy, rough and smooth — just like Danny.

Sprint

Sprint/Nextel selected Preferred Wireless as one of a handful of authorized business agents for a special sales channel that allowed them to sell phones and services to employees of businesses that use Sprint as their carrier, at the same discounted rates that the business received.  ”This is a huge opportunity” said Rick McMichael, owner of Preferred Wireless, “we need to create a really easy and intuityive shopping experience for our customers, with a customized site for each business we serve.”  We were up to the challenge…

Above Entertainment

Above Entertainment global music venture, founded in 2008, that is “committed to the creativity and integrity of our artists and songwriters.”  When AE came to us, we knew the site had to cater to both the creative musicians and artists, as well as the music industry executives and professionals.  So the design and layout had to have a cool, edgy design, but also be well structured and organized.

Marketing Sails

Marketing Sails responsible for turning a fleet of  42’ Catalina Sailboats into an armada of floating billboards.  Their specialized ability to print custom ads on the boat’s sails and hulls, coupled with the inherent ability for luxury sailboats to “be where the people are, and capture their attention”, resulted in a product that attracted was used by some of the most recognizable brands in the world.  The website we developed for them was going to be the “first-impression” sales tool – so it had to convey they possbilities of the product at first glance, and engage the viewer enough to draw them further into the site.

Service International

As a global disaster relief agency, it is important that Service International’s website be able to “tell the story” from the time first responders arrive on the scene through the restoration process, and capture the impact to the people they help.

MasterCard

We have worked on multiple MasterCard projects.  Sometimes in a consulting role, assisting their teams in software development, other times in a mentoring role helping their team members learn new technologies, and most recently in two outsourced project development roles.

JUMP

This website has a great, fun design that captures the energetic fun nature of JUMP, a four day summer camp that 3000+ kids from 5-13 attend each year.  One of my favorite features of this website is the online registration system – we made it very easy for parents to enter all the vital information about their children.  Rather than having to type in duplicate information for each child, a click of a button copies the information entered from the first child.  Or better yet, each child registered this year will not have to be re-entered next year.  The information is automatically imported from year to year, so it really couldn’t be any easier.

St. Louis Family Church

The St. Louis Family Church website has a lot of great features – not the least of which is the flexible content management system.  Using WordPress allows SLFC to maintain almost all of the content of the site themselves – meaning the don’t have to pay someone every time they want to make a change.  Also – we developed a few custom plugins for the site that automatically pull content from third-party systems, such as Flickr and Vimeo, so all SLFC has to do is upload a video or photo to either of those free services and they are automatically published on the site.

License Tutor

After completing a site redesign for RealEstateExpress, the owners asked us to come up with a new design for another site they owned, LicenseTutor.com.  The goal was to increase conversions (sales) by establishing trust with the visitor, presenting information in a clean and organized way with a clear path to purchase, and making the checkout process simple and secure.

The results were immediate – after going live with the new site design, bailouts decreased by 27%.

Real Estate Express

The American School of Real Estate Express, known more commonly as Real Estate Express, is arguably the most successful online real estate training school in the country.  Like many companies, however, their website was becoming very dated, cluttered, and, well, ugly.

Leaps & Bounds

Leaps & Bounds is a great company, with a heart for helping kids with developmental issues, autism, etc.  According to Carrie Salyer, Occupational Therapist and co-founder of L&B, “When parents first suspect their child might have a problem, they ask teachers, pediatricians, and other parents for help but don’t get the answers they need.  So by the time they get to us, they are frustrated, afraid, and feeling helpless.”

Posters.com

When the owners of Posters.com came to me I was shocked to hear that they didn’t even have a website. But they did have a plan… a brilliant plan to increase the value of their domain buy promoting the brand, cultivating a large customer-base, establishing a steady revenue stream. That is where we came in.

For those of you who like to read the end of the book first, I’ll give you the ending first…
