Recent Work - Applications
UI, design, front end, back end
OK, we recognize the value of good ideas (certainly more than a dime a dozen), but the ability to deliver is at least as valuable.
Case in point: PropelHire. They had engaged two different developers to build a custom productivity app, but after 8 months they had a handful of code that almost worked and a confusing, inefficient, incomplete UI.
They needed someone who could not only program the guts of the app but also help flesh out the business logic, UI, and overall product design.
Within four months we had redesigned and rearchitected the application so that it was ready for customer testing.
Recent Work - Web sites
Logo, design, front end, back end, photo optimization
Wood Works has an extensive (and stunning) portfolio that they use both as a sales tool and a design reference. They needed a fast, touch-enabled site for face-to-face sales and on-the-job use.
A graphics intensive site that uses ajax to dynamically load content in the background. What does that mean? Fast loading and super fast app-like browsing, with virtually no delays between clicking (or swiping) and viewing.
Like articulationdesign.com, we preempted the browsers clunky default behavior by creating elegant page transitions that fit the Wood Works brand.
Recent Work - E-commerce
Photography, copy writing, design, UX, front end, back end
Annie the Baker needed a new web store. Something simple to offer her 16 flavors. A stock e-commerce platform with its generic design and one-size-fits-all interface would have been good enough, but far from good.
We customized ZenCart with a design thats all about the cookies. Instead of a miniature thumbnail that you can click to expand to a small picture, you get lush full screen images of the selected flavor—nooks, crannies, and all.
The rich imagery and smooth, ajax-based interface make for an engaging branded experience. Also check out how the fluid page layout responds to changes in browser size. Tasty.

Design, mechanical engineering, production
Every project has limits: time, money, medium, etc. The challenge is developing creative solutions within the limits.
OneID wanted a unique customer engagement piece for use at tradeshows: a puzzle that demonstrated the advantages of their software. Oh, and they already had a finished video with the relevant imagery (walls disappearing into the floor), but they didnt have any idea how the game should actually work.
We designed and built a custom game that matched the video and delivered the finished product in only 10 days. Guide your customer through the web site maze to checkout, but dont let them fall off your site! Or engage OneID and go grab a cuppa joe.

Global marketing program
How do you align unknown teams across a complex global organization in less than six weeks?
That was the task when HP came to us with a marketing program on the verge of costing the company over $8 million. We rapidly analyzed the situation and developed a program that aligned internal and external teams and facilitated ongoing operation.
Cats herded, disaster avoided, and program performance more than doubled. Under our ongoing management the program has since generated over $500 million in revenue for HP.
