Case Study for BCI Systems

BCI Systems came to us for help with creating a new brand identity and website. They are a modern, forward thinking business and they wanted a simple, clean website to capture that essence and convey it to their clients. We did a complete overhaul, converting the old site to a single-page layout with simple parallax animations. These are images on the site that move in response to the users scrolling. It’s a nice way of animating a page without making the images too distracting – they only move when you scroll, not when you’re stopped on a page to read text. We also redesigned The Manager logo to make it more cohesive with the updated brand. We worked together with their team to organize their content into a hierarchy that makes the …

Case Study: Tall United

Tall United came to us with finished designs looking for a team well versed in responsive design and WordPress customization. It was imperative that their site work seamlessly across a broad range of devices and browsers. Their site needed to convey a lot of information at once and be sure that none of it would get lost off-screen and out of the users line of vision. To do this, we consulted with their team and ultimately proposed a responsive redesign that merged WordPress with Vanilla forums. We used WordPress’ custom post type functionality for deals and coupons, and infinite scroll functions to allow users to easily browse past deals and coupons. We arranged a highly customized, single sign-on deals and forum site with responsive design for mobile devices. Check it out and let …

Case Study: Greenpointers.com

Greenpointers came to us for help with creating a new brand and website for their local Greenpoint, Brooklyn community blog. They wanted a fun, vibrant site loaded with lots of social media integration. The site had to be easy-to-update, as their content is constantly changing. They asked for a lively, bold site that called attention to their values without sacrificing the cool, youthful vibe. First, we organized the site so that the blog content ran front and center in a clean, readable fashion. We opened up area for ad space along the right-hand side of the page, to increase revenue possibilities, and then we streamlined the social media flow into separate headings for Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Flickr. This allows the user to see everything at a glance in a neatly organized …

Case Study: Just Salad

When Just Salad came to Command C for a full redesign, their site needed some updating and cohesion. Based on an old-school computer game feel, it was cute and kitschy, but distractingly busy in concentrated areas, leaving a lot of dead visual space. Our first major revision was to make the site responsive, so it would translate well to mobile browsers and focus on the essentials for those users: menus, orders, locations. The mobile view also leverages geolocating and Google Maps to find the location closest to the user. Next, we added a pretty sweet Google maps integration so customers could find them more easily: Since Just Salad is a franchise business, we also added WordPress’ multi-site functionality.  With it, the user can switch between locations in various international regions. This was …

Case Study: The Brookeside Group

We’re really proud of our latest site launch, client relations firm The Brookeside Group. This was a full-scope redesign and development project that included rebranding, UI/UX design, and custom development on the WordPress platform.  Our mission was to create a fresh and cohesive look and feel that communicated the company’s accessibility and professionalism. We leveraged WordPress’ flexibility to create unique page templates for each interface, and built a custom demo plugin that allows users to register for demos directly through the website.  On the UX side of things, we strategically placed testimonials and calls to action to establish trust more quickly and offer a guided-path user experience. Here’s what it looked like before: And here’s what it looks like now:
