    Everyday Zen

    Everyday Zen

    CMS modernization, and migration to Concrete5

    Everyday Zen Foundation had a problem: their website was built on an old version of Joomla that was no longer being supported and that was being held together by the will of one very talented, yet very volunteer member of the community. They needed to fix this problem and migrate over 1200 teaching records and related media to a new website... and they needed a solution that would make it easy to update going forward. Fortunately, since building their website, CMS's have evolved and Concrete5 offered a much-improved way of managing a site of this type. Workeing together, we moved the site to Concrete5, keeping the familiar structure the same, but positioning the site on a technology with room to grow and evolve.

    A microsite to focus and feature a specific solution

    We developed this micro site for Transera in collaboration with Katie Otis of Design in Mind, a reprise of the team that developed the main Transera web site. The goal was to offer customers an opportunity to demo Transera's cloud-based solution, while also driving leads toward their Marketo-driven marketing system.

    Clean, minamalist site, responsive-design, powered by Wordpress

    We were tapped by designer Dana Elliott of San Francisco to realize this website as a simple, clean, easy-to-navigate site for Spotlight Consulting. With a quick turnaround, we threw in some light responsive design elements so that Craig Garshelis would get the most bang for his web development buck.

    Ewert Communications

    Ewert Communications

    Web services in Silicon Valley, built on Concrete5

    Ewert Communications has been a long-time business partner (as seen in many of the projects here) and decided that one way to walk the walk and talk the talk was to build a new website on a CMS. Sure, we have the talent and means to maintain a site without the WYSIWYG, and in-line editing features of Concrete5, but it's one thing to recommend a CMS to a customer and it is another thing to build your own site on it. So we did that for the Ewert site, making it mobile responsive and updatable by the Ewert's executive team.

    A new home page for a cloud-based automotive service CRM company

    We’ve been maintaining the Xtime web site for some time, so it was exciting when they tapped us, through our partner Ewert Communications, to redesign their homepage in time for an important trade show. Mike Baxter of Makai Design created a design that leaped from the screen, and we implemented it seamlessly into their existing web site.

    Bad Wolf Press

    Small, independent children’s musical company adds a full-featured blog

    Years ago, Bad Wolf Press asked us to program a custom catalog for their short musical plays. As time went by, they realized that they needed a blog to offer news and tips for teachers staging performances. To help them save money, we selected a pre-built premium template and customized that template to look like their site. The end result is dynamic Wordpress blog that they are using to promote new plays, share tips and resources and make their site more relevant on social media.

    Yellow Bus

    Yellow Bus

    A driven, yet relaxed agency website, responsive to mobile, built on Concrete5

    Yellow Bus is one of our newest business partners, and it was a lot of fun to work together on their new web site. The old site just wasn’t effective any more. They wanted a bold new presence; something that would highlight their creative, and something they could easily maintain themselves. We chose Concrete5 because of its designer-friendly architecture and the ease with which users can maintain media-rich content. Their internal team designed the site and provided the content, and with that, we built it.

    Alternative Medicine Review

    Alternative Medicine Review

    A web-based, subscription and ad-supported medical journal

    For most of its life, the venerable Alternative Medical Review was supported by a benevolent corporate sponsor and print subscriptions, which permitted it to give away the online edition for free. As online news reading became more popular than print, that time came to an end. AltMed Review asked us to build a new site with a sophisticated, tiered subscription system. We recommended Joomla as the CMS, given Joomla's inherent strengths in this area, and worked with their in-house designer to build the new look and feel of the web journal. Ultimately, the journal wasn’t able to find enough people willing to transition to a paid subscription model, so we converted the system from paid-access to register-for-access.

    Diagnostic web app and helpful information for DSL customers

    Through our long-running relationship with ASSIA Inc., as part of our partnership with Ewert Communications, we were asked to help develop a consumer-oriented web service that brings information and diagnostic tools to DSL customers. The first version included an interactive homepage highlighting the benefits of DSL, and resource pages for everything from how DSL works, to tips for getting the best performance at home. Six months later, we upgraded the site to feature a DSL diagnostic tool built by ASSIA right on the homepage, while retaining the resources from the first phase.

    Sciton Resurfacing Challenge

    Sciton

    An iPad game solution for a laser company

    Sciton wanted to create a memorable, innovative trade show experience using iPads to capture doctors' attention, educate them about Sciton's resurfacing laser, and hopefully entice them to buy one. The solution, designed by our partners Tam Communications and Makai Design, and programmed by Dewdrop Media, was a custom iPad game, in the vein of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire." Doctors venturing into the trade show booth picked up one of the available iPads, played the game, and then posted their scores to large HD screens in the trade show booth, creating a bit of friendly competition among the doctors. Dewdrop Media handled the iOS game-play, the high score database, and the animated, Flash-based scoreboard that automatically updated with new scores.
