Clients we work with

  • Diaper-eez

    Website

    www.diaper-eez.com

    Established in 1994, Diaper-eez is Canada's original cloth diaper store. Visiting their shop in Toronto's Bloor West Village is always a great experience, so their new website had a tough act to follow. We did our best to deliver a presence that felt every bit as good as their bricks and mortar boutique.

  • Diaper-eez

    Online Store

    www.diaper-eez.com

    Helpful, personal customer service is a top priority for the folks at Diaper-eez. With hundreds of products available, it's easy for visitors to feel lost in a myriad of options. Reflecting the real-life level of service was paramount in designing the online counterpart.

  • Diaper-eez

    Gift Registry

    www.diaper-eez.com

    Building a great buying experience was only the beginning. The bonus round of this build was a full-featured gift registry. Expecting moms can create and manage a registry, and easily share their choices with friends and family.

  • Karrys Bros., Limited

    App Promo Site

    www.karrys.com/app

    Karrys' latest innovation makes ordering easier than ever. With the industry's first and only mobile ordering app, a light touch is all it takes for Karrys customers to keep their stores in stock. This responsive promo page highlights the main features of the app.

  • Karrys Bros., Limited

    Mobile App

    A thorough discovery process showed us that when it comes to technology, Karrys customers come in all shapes and sizes. So the challenge was this: to deliver a state-of-the-art, easy-to-use solution that works on all devices, old and new, desktop and mobile. Our team was up to the task; customers using older, corporately-mandated computers and web browsers enjoy a quick and trouble-free ordering experience, while mobile customers use the Karrys app and its baked-in barcode scanner to place orders right from the aisles.

  • Walk [STC]

    Responsive Website

    www.walkstc.com

    We're proud of our roots in the fine city of St. Catharines, Ontario. The survey says we have one of the most walkable city centres in North America, and our daily jaunts at break time always back this up. In order to get more feet on the street and help revitalize our downtown, we teamed up with arnoldi:mcpherson to develop a campaign that includes signage throughout the core of our city, a responsive website and a social media plan to help spread the word.

  • Walk [STC]

    Street Signs

    Using simply designed signs to provide walking times to downtown destinations, it encourages pedestrians to walk, explore the neighbourhood and get exercise. The concept is based on the Walk [Your City] project conceived by Matt Tomasulo in Raleigh, North Carolina. Our goal was to develop a project that helped our city become pedestrian-friendly and healthier - socially, economically and environmentally.

  • Karrys Bros., Limited

    Ordering System

    Our work with Karrys has run the gamut, but the centrepiece is a blazing-fast online ordering system, engineered from the ground up and chock-full of Ajax and HTML5 goodness. Part workhorse and part thoroughbred, this custom-built beauty features a personalized product search, real-time logistics information and a streamlined checkout that allows customers to orders thousands of products each day.

  • Karrys Bros., Limited

    Digital Strategy

    www.karrys.com

    For more than 100 years, Karrys has been one of the leading wholesale distributors in all of Canada. They've always been known as innovators, and they challenged us to help keep it that way. The result: a completely re-imagined web presence that helps keep Karrys on the leading edge.

World Wide Travel One

HTML5 Website

www.worldwidetravelone.com

World Wide Travel One has been helping business travellers and vacationers get where they're going for more than 50 years. With locations across Ontario, the company wanted a "wow" website to help them show prospective and current clients how far they've come. We delivered with a rich visual design, built on a state-of-the-art HTML5 foundation that flies faster than time off in the tropics.

  • cNiagara

    Responsive Website

    www.cniagara.ca

    There's a full slate of cultural events taking place across Niagara each day but there was no central hub where organizers and event-goers could list or browse events. Working in tandem with local stakeholders including the City of St. Catharines and the Niagara Region, we set out to change that. The result was cNiagara.ca, a fully-responsive showcase for events that has quickly become the go-to source for cultural event listings in Niagara.

  • cNiagara

    Administration System

    The diversity of Niagara's cultural landscape is one of our most cherished assets, but it made for some major challenges when it came time to build a listings engine. Our answer was a custom-built backend that allows producers of all types to create listings, assign administration permissions and work with a calendar that's flexible enough to allow for one-day events or long runs with intermittent "dark days."

Ballinran Entertainment

HTML5 Website

www.ballinran.com

Ballinran Entertainment knows all about storytelling; the Canadian-based studio has garnered numerous industry awards and nominations, including Geminis and the Irish Film and Television Academy Awards. We were proud to help Ballinran tell its own story with a visually rich online showcase for video trailers and other digital content, together with an ecommerce platform to help drive sales.

Johnny Roccos

Responsive Website

www.johnnyroccos.com

Johnny Rocco's is anything but your everyday Italian restaurant. They're all about passion, and like the pizzas they're famous for, their website had to be a handcrafted original. We worked with Johnny Rocco's to help bring their brand online, with rich visuals and a social wall where customers can post pictures and share their experiences.

Creekside Winery

Ecommerce Website

www.creeksidewine.com

Creekside Estate has been producing premium wines in Niagara since 1997. With wines that have won accolades from peers and industry insiders alike, Creekside needed a web presence of the same calibre. Our answer was a design that captures Creekside's famously irreverent spirit, built on a back end tailored specifically to the unique requirements of the wine industry.
