Collective Next web site

Collective Next web site

Collective Next does amazing work, but was not conveying the nature and quality of that work with their existing site. Starting with some discovery workshops we spent time talking through who they are, what they do, understanding their audience and needs, and defining concrete goals to measure the success of their new site. As content is always a challenge, a Drupal framework was quickly developed as soon as the initial architecture was defined. This allowed them to work directly with a living wireframe website, adding notes, images and text to an evolving map of pages.

Nine Technology Web Site site

After developing the identity for Nine Technology it was time for a web presence. Since their solution for online backup and recovery is so unique, the concept of fitting the puzzle pieces together seemed fitting. Using Drupal as the back-end allows the client tremendous flexibility even in redefining the pieces of the puzzle itself: each one is its own piece of content, so new artwork, text and the underlying slide are all pulled directly from the content management system.

North Sails Web App/Flash-based Print-on-Demand Sail Quotes

North Sails Quick Quote system

This was a fantastic project to work on. Starting in 2002, the goal was to create a web-based method for quoting sails to augment a process of them being priced and managed in a DOS-based system. First, a web-based suite of applications was created to store and manage customer and boat information. From there, a pricing application was developed that mirrored the off-line application by importing the same data files into an SQL database and mirroring the formula logic within the web application.

Maria Bevilacqua Photography

Maria Bevilacqua web site

Maria Bevilacqua is an amazing woman. I met her as she was starting a biscotti company - and her product was simply incredible. After pursuing that for some time she changed gears back to her love of photography. To help capture her style of imagery, her website needed to be extremely minimal. Simple photo icons with mouseovers to explore the site, and a subtle player application to display the images. It really lets her work shine through.
