LCC

LCC is the largest independent telecommunications company in the world. Operating for just under 30 years and in 50 countries, they are the leader in consulting and network services in their industry. They’re cutting-edge and innovative, so naturally, they wanted their company website to mirror this.

KIWI

To many, KIWI had become a forgotten all-American brand. Those who are familiar with the name most often think of their iconic tin can, which contains the strongest, long-lasting shoe polish around. When we were pitching this brand, we took the opportunity to interview the people who knew the product best: shoe shiners. Having used the product ourselves, it wasn’t surprising to us to learn that all the professional shoe shiners in NYC, Philadelphia and beyond still use KIWI over any other brand out there. It was clear that KIWI still has a strong hold in the shoe care industry. So when it came to advertising some of their “newer” products it was important to campaign them with the same amount of gusto that was held by the passionate shoe shiners.

Mark Twain House & Museum

The Mark Twain House & Museum was in need of a total website overhaul. The organization wanted to showcase their three main entities: The House, The Museum, and of course, Mark Twain himself. They wanted the new site to have a modern feel, while still giving a nod to the time in which Twain lived and wrote his famous novels. In addition to the main site, a new online store was designed to allow the frequenting visitors and guests to purchase some of their favorite novels and memorabilia. Since the team at Mark Twain House wanted to keep the site updated and relevant to their current events, a backstage CMS system was also designed (as shown in the right screen above).
