AIGA Philadelphia Chapter – Site Rebuild

Summary: Redesign and re-architect the static HTML and Coldfusion AIGA Philadelphia website into a full content managed Drupal website. The AIGA Philadelphia board wanted the new site to still visually tie in with the previous site’s color scheme, but were open to all other changes in content presentation and user interaction. The new site tries to bring consistency and user expectations into the forefront, while opening the back-end up to the board for more frequent and manageable updates. This new site is scheduled to be live by the end of the summer, 2010.

Philadelphia Tax Amnesty – Website and Online Media Campaign

Summary: Develop the online components of a full media campaign for the Philadelphia Tax Amnesty program. The website was designed to integrate the already developed brand system and create an engaging & informative web experience to promote program details as well as sign-up users into the program. In addition to the website, online banners were created in 2 waves. The first wave was in released prior to the program launch and provided basics about the program and it’s key beginning and ending dates. The second wave of banners went live on the program’s launch date and had an actionscript countdown clock alerting the user to how many days were remaining in the program. Additionally, for the street-crew promotions staff, a fully animated placard was created with a countdown clock that showed the Days, Hours, Minutes and seconds remaining in the program.

Saint Clare’s – Site Redesign

Summary: Create a full website redesign to build off of the Saint Clare Health System’s rebranding and refocusing. A new brand was developed, built around a sky blue color scheme and the phrase “Turning Promise into Practice”. The website relied heavily on that sky blue aesthetic, and brought in a triadic color scheme for emphasis elements. The new design had to be clear, professional and a lot more usable than their previous design, and reinforce the new focus of turning promise into practice for their patients.

Sprite MyCokeRewards – Flash Interactive

Summary: Develop an engaging, rewarding experience for the “busy mom” target audience via the MyCokeRewards website. The layered brand experience (LBE) aimed to create awareness of the product and clearly communicate the mechanics of the in-market “Back to School” promotion, while also providing timely, engaging, and targeted ancillary “back-to-school” content. The LBE included a matching game that centered around back-to-school preparations which awards the user with a reward code toward their account and also featured a weekly after-school recipe that was simple and economical to prepare.

Acura – Dealer Association Website

Summary: Under a tight deadline and budget, create a portal website for the regional Acura trade association to efficiently educate users about current promotions and direct them to their closest local dealer website. Additionally we were tasked to build the site to allow for quick and efficient monthly updates. The HTML was generated in such a way as to only require a single image and text file change for each model. Efficient and effective.

Ritz-Carlton – The Residences Philadelphia

Summary: Create a modern and compelling web experience for prospective buyers and solid, accessible tools for staff to make updates to news and events pages. Dramatized a mix of classical and contemporary imagery via a primarily flash website for a sleek and modern feel, while maintaining visual references to established markers of the Ritz Carlton style.

Build a targeted, accessible CMS for updates to News and Events. We worked with a third-party vendor (O3World) to build an HTML and XML based CMS so updates to most of the site could be made by Ritz-Carlton staff or by Agency staff, without flash knowledge.

Some notable features we implemented are the ability to add video and audio to the press release section, the ability to view and download a complete list of contacts made through the contact form, a special promo spot for deep linking within the website, and the ability to create non-flash pages for direct linking and improved SEO results.
