The District

In 2014 the Historic Quincy Business District asked us to help with its re-branding. A wayfinding campaign was about to take place, a community branding initiative was on the horizon, and the organization knew that it needed to hit refresh before participating in these events. Working with its staff and executive board, we did a thorough audit of the Historic Quincy Business District. We then looked at options for naming, and eventually a logo and collateral materials. Today, The District is branding itself as the entertainment and economic center of the community. After the branding process, The District’s executive board told us that not only did they have a great new brand and logo, but that the team building that happened through the process was invaluable.

Lavish Floral Designs

Lavish Floral Designs

We had the distinct pleasure of working with Lavish Floral Designs to develop its new website. Among the many features of this great new site is a robust e-commerce solution. With online sales becoming a growing part of Lavish’s business, a quality e-commerce store was a key component of the site. As we discovered, having something that works well for florists isn’t as “off the shelf” as one might think. We worked with Lavish’s talented team to learn about how this would function in an ideal world — and then we went out and built it. Today, Lavish has a wonderful site with a store that continues to generate orders on a regular basis.

Hansen Spear Website

Hansen Spear Funeral Home in Quincy, IL, is an award-winning provider who continues to set industry trends for digital content. We have been fortunate to work with its team to develop Hansen Spear’s latest website. Having the obituaries being a prominent component of the website, as well as services and visitations in addition to all the various services they provide, was key. This design enables Hansen Spear staff to change the entire look of the site based on the season or holiday at the click of a button, all while making the most-viewed content easy to find.

Phibro Animal Health

Phibro Animal Health

Our partnership with Phibro Animal Health began in 2014. Since then, we have developed several projects. The OmniGen and Animate websites were created, each showcasing the individual product while maintaining Phibro branding. The Health Events Calculator, and Animate DCAD apps have also been developed to give the Phibro team additional tools. The largest project with Phibro has been the Phibro Knowledge Base. This database system has both a web and app view, and provides all the sales materials to the international sales teams. Tiered user groups ensure that users only see the appropriate content, and additional features like a cart ordering system, messages, notifications, and geographic contacts make the Phibro Knowledge Base a key tool for the entire Phibro Animal Health team.

Quincy Area Convention and Visitors Bureau

Creating the Quincy Area Convention and Visitors Bureau website was a fun and exciting project for our team. The old website had several layers that visitors would get lost in. By simplifying the site structure, we have given the organization a more user-friendly interface so visitors can get to the content they desire. We also gave the site an inviting look that incorporated numerous elements from our community’s history.

Quincy Compressor

Quincy Compressor

Industrial marketing is something we excel at. We have been working with Quincy Compressor to highlight its products for years. The “Tough, Tougher, Toughest” campaign took off and not only became a national campaign, but became somewhat of a slogan for the company.

Air Force

When the United States Air Force calls, you pick up. We were very happy we did. This project gave us the opportunity to work with the USAF to develop a campaign to highlight the Family Child Care program. The finished product was on display at Air Force bases throughout the world.

Milady

Milady

We got our start in book design, and have been continuously designing books since day one. Any time we can rely on our years of experience in typography and layout, we are in our element. This Milady cosmetology textbook book for Cengage gave us an opportunity to put our skills to use on a project that has been used world-wide.

Illinois Main Street Conference 2012

Hosting an event takes coordination, logistics, and superior communication. We were honored to work with our partners at the Historic Quincy Business District (now The District) to develop materials for the 2012 Illinois Main Street Conference. This award-winning project involved logo creation, website and email templates, print materials, signage and more.
