website design

I was asked to set in at Parsons School of Visual Art and Design in NYC.

 

The school had an energetic vibe. The class discussions revolved around the importance of difference with logo design, website design and brand development. The student brought a naive viewpoint and interjected some interesting thoughts and they could understand the conversation well. The conversation about logo design, website design and development revolved around a set of ideas... All clients have a unique fingerprint, a unique story. Finding what is different with each clients', logo design, website design and brand is the key. Different is good. Different is what gets images, and ideas noticed. Have you ever heard of the same thing, the ordinary, being noteworthy? Have you ever heard someone say, "The logo design was so memorable because it blended into the crowd?" You never will either. Different is what defines one idea from another, one logo from another, one website from another. Different is what makes anything memorable. Different alone will not effect a real change for any business. The key to marketing is finding the white space, defining what a business does best and finding its own unique place in the marketplace. Then defining it in a relevant and engaging way, as in logo design, website design and branding. The young minds full of innocence and excitement and expensive fashions was invigorating and fun to see. I was even impressed with the uniqueness and artistry of some of the students work. Even the simple assignment of a self portrait using a grid seemed to truly inspire some of the students.

Website design and development can be constructed in virtually any look or format but, if you want great search results "different" can be bad. Normally, "different" is good for any kind of design including logo design and website design. 'Different" is what gets your logo design or website design noticed over the compatition. "Different" is what helps your brand connect with consumers in a unique and lasting way. But, search engines like website designs, website architecture and website structures to follow a specific outline. If your website design steps outside of the perscribed search engine ideals your website will suffer in low organic search results. The ideal website design should appear unique in design and relevant in content but also stay within the guidelines search engines prefer. Also, the content of the best website design would include discriptive keyword terms. For example, for a blog that wanted to attract customers in need of website design it should include the term "website design" but even better would be to narrow the search terms. For example the term "website design wichita" would narrow the search from a global one to a local one resulting in more visitors to your website. So "different" is good if it stays within the ideal website design paramitors.

The ICM's website design is part of a total branding effort that includes multiple advertising campaigns, employee recruitment materials and a variety of on-line efforts. The website design was developed through a total branding effort that began with the development of a brand platform, brand positioning and a brand promise. We created the website design visuals in coordination with other branding efforts so the entire ICM, Inc. brand communicates the same vital core messages across all brand touch points. The ICM, Inc. website design uses brushed aluminum with subtle layer effects, white space and modern color combinations to project a clear confidence within the biofuel space. ICM, Inc. is the world-wide leader of ethanol plant design, engineering and manufacturing. The brand identity and website design also incorporate actual employee and location photography. These primary elements are the building blocks of the visual brand and of the website design.

 

ICM, Inc. wanted a website design they manage with multiple departments managing different categories. The average Content Management System (CMS) is a website which focuses on the authoring, editing and publishing of website articles and news. The website design we developed for ICM, Inc. allows our client to do much more. This website design enables ICM, Inc. to manage everything on the website. The articles in a CMS are stored in a database and are displayed in the website the same way photos from a dynamic photo gallery are plus, this website design has a customized client interface that makes it easy and simple to use for inexperienced users. We also include how-to-training-videos as part of the back-end user interface so infrequent users can get help anytime day or night. The advantage is that a CMS site can allow many users (editors, authors, admins etc) to update the websites content through the website itself. This means that a web programmer does not need to be employed every time an article is added. Another feature of Insight Design Communications' CMS platforms are plugins. Plugins allow you to extend the functionality of a website. For example, we installed a dynamic photo gallery plugin making it easy to manage both articles and photos on the website.This website design automatically adjust for mobile devices and functions in multiple languages.ICM takes pride in the fact that their equipment and proprietary technology are used in more ethanol plants currently in operation throughout North America, than any other. Backed by the most aggressive yield, energy, and emissions guarantees in the industry, these plants collectively produce 6.7 billion gallons of ethanol annually. ICM built these plants, and today our comprehensive line includes more than 30 products and services tailored to make all forms of biofuel production more efficient and more profitable than ever.


Armed with cutting-edge engineering and design tools and a relentless pursuit of improvement, the engineers, scientists, craftsmen, and construction management specialists at ICM come to work every day to ensure that the name ICM continues to be synonymous with quality, integrity, service, and innovation . . . not just in North America, but around the globe.
ICM's mission, to provide innovative technologies, solutions and services to sustain agriculture and advance renewable energy, including food and feed technologies that will increase the supply of world protein, reflects their global reach.
ICM, Inc. is located in the Wichita, KS area.

The Z Hair Academy website design had a variety functions and desired outcomes. Z Hair Academy wanted to replace pay-per-click advertising that cost thousands of dollars a month with organic search results or natural search results, inform prospective students and allow them to enroll online and make it easy for the Z Hair Academy staff to manage, change and update the web site.

 

We developed a Content Management System (CMS) website that enabled Z Hair Academy to manage, change and keep the Z Hair Academy web site up-to-date and relevant. We also informed and educated Z Hair Academy how to manage their own Search Engine Optimization (SEO). We designed a website with dynamic web pages. (Dynamic web pages are websites that are generated at the time of access by a user or change as a result of interaction with the user and dynamic web pages are a fundamental part of Web 2.0 which facilitates information sharing across multiple websites.) The Z Hair Academy website design also has an online catalog so prospective students can discover and learn about what Z Hair Academy has to offer, and with the web based enrollment form Z Hair Academy can fill classes without even the cost of paper. The Z Hair Academy web site also includes an easy to update online events calendar which is a great way to inform prospective students and an excellent way to bring visitors back to the website again and again. Furthermore, the website has a photo gallery that allows Z Hair Academy to upload photos and create new sets so they can showcase visiting instructors like Sally Rogerson. The website gallery also makes it easy for Z Hair Academy to share special events, products, new hairstyling techniques, new hair styles and the latest fashion shifts.  The Academy can also upload pre-designed coupons which keeps Academy customers coming back to the website and back to get styled, cut and colored. We also made Z Hair Academy website design social, with easy click to share buttons. The Z Hair Academy website design is a living tool that helps The Academy stay one step ahead of the crowd.

 

The Z Hair Academy website design is doing well already with organic search or natural search results. For example, Google keyword search for "hair academy Kansas' Z Hair Academy website design shows up three times on the first page of Google search results at #2, #3 and #5 out of 12,600,000 results. Google keyword search for "hair academy Lawrence' Z Hair Academy website design shows up three times on the first page of Google search results at #1 out of 12,800,000 results. Bing keyword search for "hair academy Kansas' Z Hair Academy website design shows up  on the first page of Bing search results at #2 out of 55,700,000 results.(Search engines usually offer two types of search results to their customers: Pay-Per-Click results--typically at the top or on the side and organic or natural results. While Pay-Per-Click  results can get your Web site to rank higher for a specific keyword phrase (because you've paid to be high in the results), most customers consider these results to be little better than advertising, and will often skip over them in favor of the natural or organic search results.)

This is what Greg Menefee, the marketing director, of JBS Swift & Company said, “It isn’t often that a graphic design or a single brand identity program can totally change perceptions of a company, its people, or products but it is safe to say that the 1855 Brand logo design, branding, website design and photography design is doing just that. Already we have secured wins in the NE United States (NY, NJ, CT, PA), Atlanta with Halperns, Tucson and Phoenix, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and a huge addition in Denver. Our new partnerships with Rastelli’s in NJ, Halperns’ in Atlanta, Out west in Vegas, Freedman / Sysco in Denver are bigger than mere industry/distribution wins. These four companies are huge players with tremendous reputations and successes in the industry - with their business the ripples from the 1855 Brand launch have become waves.”

 

We developed everything from logo design to New York bus signage to website design to retail signage and brand packaging and everything in-between. Most importantly we designed the brand identity, the strategic visual and implemented it on hundreds of items.

 

The 1855 Brand Promise:

HISTORY. EPIC EATING EXPERIENCE. PERFECTION.

 

HISTORY.

1855 Brand™ premium meats are a celebration of master butcher and company founder Gustavus F. Swift who, back in 1855, began hand selecting the world’s finest meats with an unmatched passion for excellence. The legacy of this visionary small town butcher began humbly with a $20 loan, courtesy of his father, to buy a neighbor’s prized heifer. Buoyed by his dream to deliver the freshest, safest, highest-quality meats to customers across the country, he invented and patented the first refrigerated rail car. It would become a cornerstone of the 150+ year heritage of groundbreaking G.F. Swift innovations in meat quality, safety and processing. 1855 Brand premium meats pay homage to our founder and his heritage with a premier level of quality that would make G.F. Swift proud. And while his legacy of industry firsts will never be rivaled, establishing your own legacy is what 1855 Brand premium meats are all about. After all, your legacy is the one that matters most.

 

EPIC EATING EXPERIENCE

G.F. Swift 1855 Brand™ premium meats are an epic eating experience. For those who truly know their beef and pork, this is nirvana. We start by selecting the finest cattle and hogs in the nation. Then each cut is hand selected for exquisite marbling, creating unmistakable flavor and incredible juiciness. Swift 1855 Brand premium beef and pork is then perfectly aged to ensure sublime tenderness. That’s important, because marbling and aging remain the keys to indulgent flavor and tenderness. And while our lofty quality standards set 1855 Brand premium meats apart, it is our unprecedented commitment to verifying such incomparable quality that puts our premium meats on another level. From animal selection and product quality to food safety and delivery of finished cuts, the 1855 Brand quality verification program is so exacting, even perfection gets a long look. It’s all part of delivering a consistently exceptional eating experience, every time.

 

PERFECTION

All 1855 Brand™ beef is a statement maker. That’s because we start with the biggest selection of the very best cattle in the nation, bar none - at incredible availability. It becomes even more special as we hand select and hand trim each cut, using only the highest quality upper 2/3 USDA Choice beef. We then apply the industry’'D5s most demanding quality standards for marbling and aging at every turn, and execute tight trims for higher yields. To understand just how superior 1855 Brand beef is, all it takes is one heavenly, tender and juicy bite. It all happens in a limited number of select state-of-the-art plants located in the heart of America’s cattle country. From sourcing to food safety processes to tight trims, we maintain quality control over everything.

 

The 1855 Brand launch included logo design, stationary system, website design, brand packaging, direct mail, retail hanging posters, outdoor advertising, photography design and art direction, large and small case dividers, 3’ wide case header, cap and apron, back-of-house poster and educational material, flexographic shipping packaging and all elements of graphic design.
