92 West is happy to announce the launch of Cutting Edge Business Cards! As we have grown as an advertising agency we realized that their was an under served niche market; high impact and professional looking business cards. Thus CEBC was born!
We have contracted with local printers as well as companies in California, New Jersey, Texas and Florida to provide a high quality, but lost cost alternative to Vista Print. As we continue development on the site you’ll see additional innovations that will allow customers to create and save their cards, re-order as needed and share them with other professionals.
Our team here at 92 West, took on the branding and web development as we would any project. We set a budget and a time table for implementation. In print, most logos and corporate materials consist of cyan, yellow, magenta and black. We decided to implement a wider range of colors and go from magenta to red and “brick red” tones. The e-commerce system was built on ExpressionEngine with the Exp:resso Store module. We also custom programmed a module to allow customers to upload artwork post order creation which directly interfaces with the store module to approve, delete or un-approve artwork as needed.
As with any good site needs to be connected socially, we used DevDemon’s Campaign module to connect the site’s channel entries to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr and Google+. A great way to streamline your social posting and optimize your time doing so.
92 West was contacted by Skutt Catholic High School in November of 2013 and was looking for an update to their existing website with responsive design / development in mind. We set out to create a fundamentally simple way to incorporate all their existing content (over 300 pages) into an easily learned content management system; ExpressionEngine.
The results speak for themselves. We combined over 20 different departments into seven template (publishing) groups which allows the administration freedom to post content in a variety of ways while keeping the content editing simple and standard across the platform. Please check out http://www.skuttcatholic.com and tell us your thoughts on this new, responsive, CMS driven website.
ExpressionEngine, NavEE, Editor, Channel Images, Channel Video, Forms, SuperSearch, LowSearch, Password Manager and SEO Lite.
In December 92 West released version three of the website. With sound copy, creative design and great clients to showcase our abilities we were able to win this award. 92 West officially scored a 98 of a possible 100 and were the best of 381 entries.
The monthly competition is based on the following criteria and point structure. Creativity: 40 Points
Creativity is the most important aspect in design. It refers to the unique artistic method in which the intended goal was acheived.
Effectiveness: 30 Points
Design and creativity aside, does the design piece effectively communicate the intended message to the audience?
Practicality: 30 Points
How does the design measure up in real-life circumstances in terms of speed and load times, accessibility, flow, etc.?
Ethics: Pass or Fail
A set of values by which the graphic design industry needs to abide by, in order to become successful and viable.
92 West is proud of what we have done and we are looking forward to what the new year brings.
