Flash Animation

Flash animation and Actionscript, Flash's unique programming language are often used in delivering rich media content online. Most of the video seen now is most likely delivered via the Flash video format (FLV) through a typical Flash "movie" (SWF). Flash can be used in many ways and is very engaging because it produces very fluid animation. On the flipside, it can be overused and becomes annoying or done poorly. If there is animation on a web page, it is probably Flash.

Morgan Construction & Cabinetry, Ltd.

When we saw the type of work they did, we were very excited to design the website for Morgan Construction & Cabinetry, Ltd. The success of a showcase site such as this relies heavily on photography and we were fortunate to have many source images. Of course it also depends on how those images are displayed.

We often aim to design marketing support that reflect the quality or level of service that our clients provide. For Morgan, this meant we would be designing an exquisite website. We go the distance for all of our clients just as they do for theirs.

Charles Griffin Intelligence, LLC

Charles Griffin Intelligence, LLC

Communications are not necessarily literal when it comes to marketing and advertising. We like to call it "atmospheric" in the case of Charles Griffin Intelligence. There was a "feel" our client was attempting to evoke with photography and left it to us to put those in position and set them in motion. We were more than happy to assist.

Collaboration with our clients is important to the success of our work and we are always open to their ideas and concerns. We will act as your experts, giving you honest appraisals based on knowledge and experience. We will not shy away from a difficult critique when we feel something could be better and vice versa, we are not primadonnas and can take direction.

This "Website in a Day" began as one of our Smart Site products and played out very well for our client. Once the initial site was built and online, we were called back to improve upon the styling. That is the scenario we envision for some of you- need for a very professional site, and then build onto it as the business grows and budgets allow or needs dictate. Our client had their content ready to go, and we literally built out a CMS site in 24 hours.

Paramount Center for The Arts

paramount center for the arts

Our good neighbors, The Paramount Center for The Arts, have an incredible amount of talent coming through their doors each month. We created the layout, programming, and method of delivery behind their lobby display screen. It keeps patrons informed of upcoming shows, fundraising events, and film series.

We were happy to create this ongoing stream of animated slides as an alternative to a sinlge local file on one of their in-house systems that had to be overwritten each time there was a change, we devised a way of delivering this to their screen via the Internet. All updates are made remotely which makes for a very efficient operation. If you are looking for some innovative advertising, motion graphics, or both, please let us know, we love a good challenge.

You can actually see this online: Paramount Lobby Display You can click on the browser screen on your computer to see it expand to full screen. It is formatted for a specific display size so it may look a bit fuzzy if those proportions don't match.


The Bird & Bottle Inn

The Bird & Bottle Inn

One of the Hudson Valley's well known fine dining and unique lodging experiences is now well represented in this newly released website. The Bird & Bottle Inn located in Garrison, New York is only a few miles north of northern Westchester county. Once known as Warren's Tavern, it has been there since 1761, operating in the colonial days.

Our assignment was to accurately portray the warm and welcome atmosphere visitors experience when they enter the historic inn. We provided a CMS application that allows events, press releases, menus, and other content to be added, organized, and edited simply and easily by the Bird & Bottle staff. In addition to the design and development of the site, we also provided location photography. 

We worked in collaboration with The Gold Standard who provided writing, photography, and direction on overall navigation and page flow.

The Research Network on an Aging Society

The Research Network on an Aging Society

We work with The Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York, and they came to us for this special project funded by a MacArthur Foundation grant. We were privileged to work with Dr. John "Jack" Rowe on this project and were successful in providing the Content Management System requested in a look and feel that was fitting for the subject.

The site was awarded a 2009 Big W from the Advertising Club of Westchester in the non-profit website category.

Lori Lustig Executive Search

Lori Lustig Executive Search

There are some websites that make fantastic examples of how less makes more impact. We worked with Lori Lustig on this site closely and it was relatively easy because she was so decisive, knowing exactly what she wanted. We are both extremely happy with the results.

This site contains examples of some very elegant Flash animation. We are of the opinion that a Flash intro should be engaging and not invite a visitor to "skip" it. We will typically argue to build the intro directly into the home page to increase usability, allowing visitors to navigate from the very first screen.

Lori's logo won a Big W Bronze award in 2008 since it was completed prior to the launch of the site, and we were honored twice with this job when the website was also awarded a Big W Silver in 2009. Visit the site online.

Visit the site and you'll see what we mean.
