Put your best foot forward
It all starts with an identity. Imagine all that great marketing that Nike does without the swoosh. Seems simple, but it is the one consistent element in everything they do. We work with all types of companies when developing identities. From start up to Fortune 500 (we haven't worked with one of them just yet, but we're available) no company should be without a professionally designed identity system. We start, as with all projects, with a initial discovery meeting. We chat with you and your employees to get to know your company and the industry you surround yourself with. Once we have a solid grasp of our client, we hit the sketch book. Final product includes three concept designs, a finalized design with corporate color scheme, usage rules and relevant file types provided to the client.
Signs to print, we do it all
We handle all different types of design. Business Cards, Letterheads, Envelopes, Print Ads, Mailers, you name it we can handle it. With over 11 years experience in the print industry there is nothing we haven't been involved in, we create it all. Got a product? Let us get it packaged. Need a sign? We do that too.
Get your business connected
We provide custom web design in style. It is important to us to fully understand the needs of your site so we can help you get the most out of it. Web design is not only about the visual appeal, but the flow of information as well. We strive to provide the best user experience possible while making it look like a million bucks at the same time.
We don't wear brown suits, but we'll get it there
No matter the project, our job is not done until you have the final product in hand. Whether that be a box full of beautifully printed materials or a site launched and hosted online. We provide solid hosting and work with a few local production companies to get our pieces done correctly, the first time. Take a look at some of our products under the "work" tab up above.
Slick design, clever coding, content you manage
We explored numerous Content Management Systems and were never fully satisfied with their results, so we created our own. ZMCMS (Zyph Martin Content Management System) allows us to customize every site we create while maintaining an easy to use management system. Rather than having a confusing backend system for our clients, we put the management right over top of the site so they can see exactly what they are editing in an extremely user friendly atmosphere.
Let us simplify your day
Do you have a need for your business but can't find the right software that to accomplish it? Or maybe you have a great web application idea, but you just aren't sure how to implement it. We're your guys! We love coming up with ways to help you and your business succeed. We can build you what you need from the ground up with the latest web technologies. We love Ruby on Rails, it allows us to customize web based software to give our clients what they are looking for without all the extra whooplah. With a browser based custom application it centralizes your entire day to day operations in one place allowing access from anywhere. Your dream of working from home just came true!
Consistency and strategy
It is one thing to design a great looking piece, but what next? We can help you plan an entire marketing campaign from concept to launch. Planning, consistency and tracking are three most important steps when putting together a campaign, let us give you a hand.
Who needs postage?
Email marketing is becoming more and more important as time goes by. Traditional mail marketing can be costly with the need for prints and postage, not to mention that it can be very difficult to track the results. With our custom designed email marketing software you can not only save money but you can see what is happening with the piece, who opened it, who forwarded it, what links are interesting people. Power at the click of the mouse.
Room and board for your site
We offer a few options for you to host your site. We specialize in hosting Ruby on Rails, Merb, Sinatra, or any Rack based site. We use Phusion Passenger with Nginx to serve them up to the public. To conserve memory and serve your apps better and faster we use Passenger in conjunction with Ruby Enterprise Edition. Our servers are fully secured and managed. But we also offer shared hosting for your site with Directadmin as a control panel so you can manage your DNS, Emails, and much more... For those of you that didn't understand a word we just said, we will host your site and make sure the content loads at the fastest available speeds. Promise.
Know what is going on
Analytics are coded into every site we create. They generate detailed statistics about the visitors to a website. Its main highlight is that the product is aimed at marketers as opposed to webmasters and technologists from which the industry of web analytics originally grew. Analytics can track visitors from all referrers, including search engines, display advertising, pay-per-click networks, email marketing and digital collateral such as links within PDF documents. Integrated with AdWords, users can review online campaigns by tracking landing page quality and conversions. Goals might include sales, lead generation, viewing a specific page, or downloading a particular file. These can also be monetized. By using GA, marketers can determine which ads are performing, and which are not, providing the information to optimise or cull campaigns.
If you build it, they will come
The bottom line is you not only want to be noticed, you want to be found. Who doesn't use a Search Engine these days? Search Engine Optimization is something we think about and implement from the start when building a web application or web site. It is important that the code running your site is clean and valid. We take the time to make sure that happens. If you already have a site you would like us to burn through and update just let us know and we would be happy to help you out.
