Step right up to the observation window and take a peek at our portfolio. But please - no tapping on the glass, and don't forget that programmers can sense fear...
After successfully redeveloping Honda's Wellness Center site, we were asked to create a web-based registration system for their upcoming employee appreciation event. The system was to be used worldwide ("no pressure, but if it doesn't work, you'll tick off every top person in Honda - have fun").
The site (and the event) was a flat out success, and we've even modified the system so they can continue to use it for additional events.
Now if we can just get our hands on a new NSX...
Mount Carmel Medical Group consists of a vast network of more than 130 primary care and specialty physicians throughout multiple locations in central Ohio.
Big hospitals, multiple locations, process, paperwork, it may all be part of being well. Mount Carmel wanted to ease the process for every patient and put it all on one screen.
The Physician Finder scans the backend database by name or specialty to easily find the right doctor and location. Policies, forms, making an appointment, refilling a prescription, even paying the bill, all accessed from one screen with a user-friendly layout? Is it possible? Darn tootin' it is.
To further ease the process for any patient, Forefront is developing a mobile app (mHealth, coming soon to an app store near you) that will store personal and family medical data. Just doing our part to corral those pesky medical forms and show them who's boss.
We've been fortunate to work with HR Gray for years, and have marveled at the size and scope of the projects they work on. When it came time to redevelop their site, we took inspiration from them and tried to deliver an awe-inspiring website.
The site features full width imagery, an interactive portfolio, and a comprehensive overview of their services (they do a LOT). It all came together well, and their site engagement statistics have all increased by at least 30%!
As a company that excels at making beautiful buildings, SMBH expected nothing less for their site. The home page consists of a full page photo and a simple navigation bar that focuses on one direct message: who we are and what we do delivered with a chic and effective level of minimalism with only three elements.
The site balances messages of technical capability with tangible visual results, including hospitals, churches, retail buildings, and universities heralding the integrity of their modern architectural examples in an extensive online portfolio.
Or as our intern put it, "cool buildings"! We couldn't agree more.
A high integrity, 100 year old family run business with a website that looked as old as they are? We'll take that challenge all day long.
A fun company to work with, Strait & Lamp is actually made up of six different companies, all top notch at what they do. If you're a home builder or a home owner, they have what you need. Problem was, their old site didn't reflect the quality of this company or the breadth of the products and services they offer.
Our folks went to work and created a site that accomplished both, and we love the way it turned out. And did we mention how fun they are?
The Lettuce Work Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization, helping adults with autism achieve independence and give them hope for the future. By showing real faces with the initiative, Lettuce Works is able to leverage the site to garner support through donations and volunteer programs.
Adults with autism are trained in local greenhouses to grow and cultivate different varieties of lettuce that are promoted and sold to wholesalers throughout the state of Ohio. The results are providing people with little opportunity the confidence of earning a paycheck while learning the skills that offer the lifelong value of a sustainable trade.
When first meeting with Ken Dodson, president of Wealth Advantage Group, he stated very clearly, "I want people to know who we are, and I want people to tell us who they are." This brilliant simplicity transcended to the clean navigation and content within the site, so that the determination of the right investment advice could be given to any customer with acute efficiency.
A perfect example of clean, professional, and straightforward design, Wealth Advantage Group offers a different eye-pleasing panoramic photograph of the city of Columbus Ohio that changes with each navigation selection. Direct, professional, and to the point, this site embodies the benefits of keeping it simple to achieve the greatest impact.
Clinton County, Ohio is a beautiful place with many family friendly attractions. It's also home to Wilmington, about which Glenn Beck said, "... a rising Phoenix? It may have been burned but it is rising again and it is doing it without government help. And it is a tremendous, tremendous town." Mr. Beck hosted his radio show there recently, bringing the national spotlight to Clinton County.
Vibrant colors were a no-brainer, and the emphasis needed to be on making the site welcoming for potential visitors. Area attractions are the main focus of the site, as well as the current information available via their social media efforts. The home page now features automatic placement of headlines from their blog as well as their latest Twitter update.
Acme Canine has grown rapidly - which is a direct result of owner Laura Pakis' stellar reputation and tenacious grass-roots marketing efforts. ForeFront was fortunate to be along for the ride, adding oodles of content to their original site. Eventually, there was simply too much information to effectively display using the old format, and it was time to rethink the entire site.
The challenge was to present a LOT of services (Acme currently offers more than 60 services!) and not overwhelm visitors with confusing navigation. ForeFront had also done SEO work on the original site which had to be preserved, so a lot of time was spent mapping old pages to new and providing gobs of info to Google. A recent check of analytics shows that the number of visits, average pageviews and average time on site have all increased, while the bounce rate has dropped over 20%!
In 2011, US crop production was estimated at approximately $1.7 billion in production revenue, but the most valuable asset for any farmer is their land. Farmland Network is a national real estate listing for farms, land sales, investors and auctions. This niche classified listing helps sellers find the highest price and buyers the lowest to acquire farm land assets anywhere in the United States.
Integrating a Google Map user interface, available properties are flagged and quickly found to click and drill down to detail. The listings are paid for through a monthly subscription, as are other advertisements placed strategically throughout the site.
A services listing provides resources available for farm management, auctions, appraisal, accounting, and legal representation critical to buyers and sellers. A blog is an informative tool announcing auction results, national news affecting the industry, and doubles as a Search Engine Optimization enhancer. The forum allows everyone from the industry to collaborate and seek the knowledge and expertise of their peers.
Sustained by advertising listings, Farmland Network is a successful online venture because of the organization of information, intuitive user engagement, and most of all the quality of the content and service to its targeted industry. We love it when a plan comes together.
