  • Popsations Popcorn

    Background:

    We designed another website for Popsations in the past, but this time they came to us looking to make changes to their main site. With the company’s primary colors being red and white, the client felt like this color scheme was too overwhelming for the website and wanted to tone things down a notch.

    Solution:

    We managed to make the red and white contrast more subtle, while keeping the branding elements. We also updated the product photos and added a news section to allow the client to post updates and showcase recent press mentions.

  • Balloons n’ Blooms

    Background:

    We designed the first website for Balloons & Blooms back in 2011 and the time came to change things up. The client wanted a more modern, grownup look to appeal to the right customer, as well as a way to easily update their portfolio.

    Solution:

    The website we built is well-organized and sophisticated. We added galleries to showcase all the projects Balloons & Blooms has worked on. Because their service is so visual (balloon décor for events), we let the images speak for themselves.

  • Experimental Machine, Inc.

    Background:

    EMI is a manufacturer and supplier of machined parts, structures and composite materials for commercial, military and other high-profile clients. Their old website was very basic, text-heavy and didn’t do anything for the branding.

    Solution:

    We worked on a tight 2-week deadline to produce a new website in time for an international event EMI representatives were attending. The design we came up with is clean, professional and balances text with photos and video – visual components the old site was lacking.

  • Curry Printing & Copy Center

    Background:

    This large Baltimore-based printing and copy center offers a wide variety of professional printing services to businesses and individuals. The old website didn’t reflect this and failed to portray fun and creative company culture.

    Solution:

    After long back-and-forth collaboration, we came up with a bright and artistic design that fits the company’s image. Along with an intuitive menu and clear calls to action, we’ve built in a file submission feature for better customer experience.

    Background:

    Referred to us by another client, this small video production company at the time had just a plain landing page. The owners wanted a fully-functional website that would reflect their talent and creativity.

    Solution:

    We have created a fun, edgy, yet professional-looking website with the focus on video portfolio. Dark background and graffiti fonts complement the featured video from “Run For Your Lives” 5K zombie obstacle race that HGL Productions did commercials for.

  • PST Powerup Sports

    Background:

    This large athletic training facility was a new, yet fast-growing business when we first met with the owners. The company needed a website to accurately portray all the various services, athletic programs and memberships the facility had to offer.

    Solution:

    We started right away and designed a website that showcased everything that makes PST a one-stop-shop for athletic training. While the project took a brief hiatus due to unexpected circumstances on the client’s side, we were happy to resume the work and see the site go live.

    The owner of this concrete construction business had a bad experience with his last web designer who promised results he couldn’t deliver. The company needed a new website with a built-in login system for employees and a project database for subcontractors.

    Solution:

    We designed a simple, yet multi-functional website featuring employee login, as well as a project database with the file upload/download capability. The portfolio also received special attention and got reorganized to allow for better service showcase.

  • OBX Popcorn

    Background:

    OBX Popcorn came to us with a three-week deadline to build a fun creative eCommerce website. The company was expanding its business to a new service area and needed a website to launch a marketing campaign.

    Solution:

    Because the client was used to operating a specific eCommerce platform that we weren’t familiar with, we had to learn it and design the website around it. Playing off the shape of the popcorn bucket, we developed a colorful website that accurately reflected the brand and radiated positivity.

    Solution:

    With minimal input from the client regarding the look, feel and contents of the website, we’ve managed to produce a product that CraftMasters Remodeling were happy with. The new website offers useful consumer information, as well as a showcase of the company’s work.

  • Long Green Fire House

    Background:

    This fire company was already ahead of the curve when they came to us. Long Green had a website unlike many in their field, but it was difficult to update and didn’t do its best to represent the spirit of volunteerism, the company’s culture and rich history.

    Solution:

    Our first move was to update the website with a user-friendly content management system to make it easier for Long Green to post news and updates. We also modernized the site’s look and added new content to help encourage donations.

    Solution:

    We designed a simple, yet attractive website that clearly outlined attorneys’ areas of expertise and allowed for easy navigation. We recommended including staff bios and photos to build credibility with the visitors.

  • Anchor Waterproofing

    Background:

    Family owned and operated basement waterproofing company was looking to get better results from online marketing. The old website didn’t do its job of attracting customers, and quite the opposite – scared them away with outdated look and 90s-style animation and sound effects.

    Solution:

    The sound of rain and thunder greeting the visitors when they first open the website had to go. We got rid of all unnecessary features and created a well-organized and attention-grabbing design that significantly improved Anchor Waterproofing’s website conversion rate.
