One Shot Coffee Website Launch

One Shot CoffeeFor those who live or work in Northern Liberties, One Shot Coffee is a rather well-loved fixture.

Now recently opened, the new building boasts two floors with area enough for live performances, private parties, and more.

The One Shot's new interior is a masterpiece of eclectic harmony—be sure to drop by if you are in the 'hood and check out the greatly expanded food and drink menus! And now for the delightfully lazy, there is even delivery service!

Bridget Foy's Restaurant Website Relaunch

Bridget Foy's Restaurant Web Design

The Bridget Foy's restaurant has been a staple of South St. since well before I arrived in Philadelphia in the early 90s. I've always appreciated their tasty menu—from the calimari appetizers and burgers to the mahi mahi, grilled tuna and eggplant napoleon.

Recently, Bridget Foy's completely remodelled their two upper floors to create a new private party area for up to 100 people. Flat panel TVs, music equipment and a private bar are just some of the new features of this great space.

Philly Dog Training Website Launch

Philadelphia Dog Training Web Design

Nocella Roofing Website Launch

Have you seen the average small business website? If so, then you know the horrible state they are usually in—poor design, broken links, missing information, bad HTML, no search visibility and little traffic to speak of. Well, as a independent business person myself, I've made it a point to seek out projects that directly benefit other small business owners. Nocella Roofing is the latest example.

Nocella Roofing has been roofing homes and businesses in the Philadelphia area since, well, model T Fords lined Broad St. As you might imagine, their roofing expertise and understanding of Philadelphia'a unique construction requirements are second to none. Furthermore, owner Ray Nocella is true roofing innovator, holding patents for several winter roof ice abatement products and roof drainage systems. Recently, Nocella Roofing has even been developing environmentally beneficial and energy efficient green roof projects.

So when it was time to move the family business online, Ray and I first discussed the overall plan and strategy (like all good tradesmen), before getting down to work. The first fruits of our collective labor—a newly designed website—launched and immediately began to generate new business leads. Next, we'll execute the rest of the online marketing plan and build that site into a solid, long-term vehicle for business growth.

Gillian Grassie Website Relaunch

Gillian Grassie Web Design

Gillian Grassie is a harpist/singer-songwriter with a unique talent for jazz-inflected, indie pop. Classically trained in both harp and voice, Grassie is no Irish ballad singer. As Grammy-winner Marc Cohn once wrote: "It's rare to hear a young singer with such control and understated soulfulness, and even more rare to hear a harp provide such a deep percussive groove." Much like a fine wine might be said to have a hint of oak and currant, her music recalls greats like Ani DiFranco and Tori Amos, while foregrounding Grassie's own innovative style and melodic capabilities. On her two independently released albums, the 2005 EP To an Unwitting Muse and 2007's Serpentine, Grassie proves herself both an intelligent lyricist and talented harpist—turning the often understated instrument into a beautiful lead, which admirably takes the place so commonly occupied by guitar or piano.

This coming year Gillian will be traveling around the globe meeting musicians, learning how new media is affecting their creative process and distribution, and even playing a few gigs (we can hope). But before crossing the "big pond" for her first stop in France, she needed a new website that would help her communicate with fans, friends and family back home, and document the upcoming journey with all its discoveries, big or small. We call it Lifestreaming these days. It's a way to weave together the threads of one's social media life—uniting Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, MySpace, Flickr, MP3s, blogging, email and more in a single place your audience can find it. Elegantly simple, extremely effective.

So, when you can, take a look, not so much at my work even, but how it allows Gillian's musical life and talent to come through online.

Ron Plocek Website Launch

Ron Plocek Web Design

The American outdoor writer and memoirist, Patrick McManus, once wrote there are two best times to fish: when it's raining and when it ain't. From my experience as a child growing up on the lakes and streams of the Pacific Northwest, I would have to agree fully. Anytime is a good time to grab the tackle and leave for the quiet, peaceful company of a winding brook.

Well, almost.

Ron Plocek Web Design

While the trout might like a black gnat hand-tied fly presented promptly at 7:05AM during a slight downpour as I hang over the water, one hand white-knuckling a small Aspen tree—that was never my preference. Red & White spoons cast into a shady pocket of fast water in the hot Noon sun, or Mr. Worm and his Bobber at dusk on a clear mountain lake, did the trick just fine as I recall.

Ron Plocek, a former SoftOrigins colleague of mine, and extremely competent bass fisherman, probably has a completely different idea regarding acceptable technique, and that's just fine, since he sure lands the lunkers.

Cohen Strategic Consulting Website Launch

Cohen Strategic Consulting Web Design

Cohen Strategic Consulting (CSC) contacted me with an urgent request—develop a highly-professional web presence for their business on a highly accelerated timetable. CSC's principal, Michael A. Cohen, needed the site to support his established corporate identity and marketing collateral while clearly communicating his consultancy's approach to business improvement. From the first call we discussed several methods to achieve a fast project turnaround—formulating a concise plan to net the best overall quality in the minimum timeframe.

Project start to project finish: 10 business days.

CSC advises insurance companies on optimizing their relationships with rating agencies, and improves the performance of client companies by providing innovative solutions in strategic planning, enterprise risk management, mergers and acquisitions, business development and competitive tactics.

Stephanie Churchill Website

Stephanie Churchill is a talented yoga instructor and massage therapist based in Philadelphia, PA. It has been a pleasure to work with her on several projects.

Stephanie wanted her personal site to reflect the simplicity of her yoga practice and spiritual outlook. We settled on a spare, almost modernist design approach, incorporating a wonderful series of photographs showing Stephanie practicing various yoga poses.

A & M Berk Tax Services Website Launch

Well, it's tax time again! And while most of us are busy sorting receipts, downloading 1040s and finding a calculator, I've been helping A & M Berk Tax Services move their business online. A & M Berk specializes in individual and corporate tax preparation, back taxes & prior year returns, tax refund loans and small business accounting. They have served the Philadelphia area for over 60 years - and do so now from four convenient locations.

Regardless of what the IRS might tell you, tax preparation is painful. So why not end the suffering by calling A & M Berk and speaking with their staff of trained tax professionals. You'll be glad you did -- and heck -- you might even find out you owe Uncle Sam less than you feared.

FreedomPay Website Launch

Mid-sized companies and larger corporations often find it necessary to revisit and tune their branding, identity, and messaging—not only to better appeal to customers and clients, but to increase their recognizability, fuel customer loyality, and inspire employee identification. This was no less the case for FreedomPay, the Newtown Square, PA based provider of cashless payment management systems and processing solutions.

To tackle this project, I teamed up once again with the very talented John and Amy Saal, the creative pair known as UNTUCK design. The result was a soup-to-nuts reworking of FreedomPay's corporate identity, marketing collateral and corporate website.

MakeRealChange.org Website Launch

MakeRealChange.org - Real Change Starts with Your ContributionPhiladelphia's Center City District has been working to enhance the attractiveness, liveliness, safety and beauty of the downtown area for many years. If you are from the area, you probably have attended Restaurant Week, received the (IN) Center City eNewsletter, or met a uniformed CCD street community service representatives.

This fall the Center City District announced a new "Real Change" campaign designed to ensure that spare change will provide real change for people in Philadelphia who are homeless. On October 22nd, CCD, in partnership with the City of Philadelphia and major service providers, announced the campaign to encourage Philadelphians to give to eight area organizations that provide real help to those in need.

I encourage you to consider giving your spare change at any of the downtown Real Change displays, or consider donating directly to one of the affiliated non-profit organizations found on MakeRealChange.org.

So remember this holiday season: Real change starts with your efforts, so please make a contribution today.

Totally Zen Online Store Launch

Many aspiring retailers are stunned by the cost of developing a new online store. Typically, building a quality, e-commerce website requires a small team a web designer, content provider and web developer—and their collective fees can be high. Confronted with this reality, many turn to supposedly inexpensive solutions—such as grafting unattractive PayPal payment buttons onto their current site, or hiring a developer to implement a random shopping cart. Unfortunately, neither of these methods make for a very enticing online store. So, while they may appear as inexpensive solutions, the long-term cost is loss of sales and a permanently damaged bottom line. Fortunately, the situation has changed over the last few years. Now you don't have to be a big budget, brick-and-mortar retailer to sell online successfully.

So when Stephanie Churchill of Totally Zen sought a sensible method to sell her products online, we met, discussed the project in detail and decided on the Shopify e-commerce platform. Shopify provides a hosted e-commerce storefront that is powerful, flexible and search engine friendly. Shopify's sophisticated administration tools let you organize your products, customize your storefront, accept credit card payments, track and respond to orders, and even more.

Compared with other e-commerce platforms, Shopify is easy to set up, skin with a highly compelling design, load with your products, and works with variety of credit card transaction processors.

So, come on in, browse the store, and find something great to buy today!

AroundMainLine.com Website Launch

AroundMainLine.com - The Region's First Online Main Line Magazine

Launch day...it's a recurring theme around here. But today is rather special, it's the launch of AroundMainLine.com, the Philadelphia region's first online magazine covering the Main Line, western suburbs and surrounding region. AroundMainLine.com offers readers a great selection of features covering dining, going out, travel, fashion, shopping, people and local buzz. The e-magazine also offers regional businesses a great opportunity to tap into the elusive Main Line readership. While many there are a few traditional, limited reach, publications serving the western suburbs, this will be the first to effectively tap into a broader, and in many cases younger, audience. It will be exciting to participate in, and help drive, its growth.

Also, don't forget, Around Main Line is planning a great launch party at Blush Restaurant and Bar in Bryn Mawr on October 16th. Want to come? Visit AroundMainLine.com and sign up to receive your invitation. Around Main Line will be hosting more events moving forward, so keep an eye out.

Women Against Abuse - iPledge Website Launch

iPledge - Woman Against Abuse"I Pledge Not to Raise My Hand in Violence"

Women Against Abuse approached John and Amy Saal of UNTUCK Design to create a new domestic violence public awareness campaign. The wonderful result was iPledge—a campaign supporting a citywide anti-violence movement which calls on ordinary Philadelphians to help end violence at home and in the community. Recognizing that unhealthy relationships at home not only destroy families, but compromise the health of our entire city, the effort is committed to raising awareness of domestic violence and all its consequences while making our neighborhoods safer. John Saal was kind enough to ask me to assist in the development of the campaign's new website.

Your help is needed in many ways. Now is the time to act! You can contribute, volunteer, donate comfort items and amenities for victims and their children, attend workshops or evenjoin the WAA staff and make a tangible difference in the lives of domestic violence victims and their children. You can also be a key voice in halting legislation that is currently threatening the lifeline of many local agencies.

So take action against violence at home and in the community. Join the effort to eliminate domestic abuse and violence in our community. Make your pledge today and be sure support Woman Against Abuse on Facebook.

If you are in an abusive relationship, call the Philadelphia Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-866-SAFE-014 to speak to a crisis counselor.

BONGO Agency Site Launch

BONGO Agency - Advertising, Marketing, Interactive and Public RelationsThere's a brand new beat in town and its name is BONGO.

BONGO is a hip, new agency founded by three experienced ad men—Frank Tolkacz, Michael D'Antonio and David Thompson. Moving away from the concept of a small agency as a glorified design house providing production services, BONGO's mission is to offer big agency expertise in brand development, advertising, public relations, interactive and marketing—while emphasizing agility, flexibility, and, above all, detailed attention to your brand. It's a savvy business model and one I think will catch on quickly. Afterall, why deal with an impersonal Big 10 agency when you can get the same strategic expertise, creative, and marketing vision from a company that actually cares for your business like it was their own? Yeah—I don't know why either.

Dambuster Deicers

Innovative Roof Deicer Products

Dambuster Deicer Web siteDambuster Deicers are the brainchild of regional businessman and roofing professional, Ray Nocella. These patented deicer products were created with one purpose in mind: to stop winter ice from forming on roofs and causing expensive water damage to homes and commercial buildings. Their innate simplicity, easy of installation and effectiveness was a great foundation upon which to build a wide variety of online and offline marketing vehicles geared to drive direct sales and generate high levels of supplier/distributor interest.

Bringing a new product to market can be a serious challenge. All successful product launches are a sustained, collective effort. An enthusiastic entrepreneur must allow his or her vision to be shaped into a sellable product and/or brand by dedicated professionals working in several areas: marketing, design, development, copywriting, business and public relations. This product launch was fueled by four agency-level, independent professionals. Joanne Hoffman of Hoffman Studio provided creative direction, marketing strategy, brand identity and collateral design. Michael D'Antonio of Michael D Marketing & Communications provided account management and marketing research. I provided strategic planning, Web design and development, pre- and post-launch search engine optimization, direct email marketing services and Web hosting. Copywriting was executed as a collaborative process with important final polishing offered by veteran Philadelphia wordsmith Mark Ellis.

Center City District Restaurant Week 2008 Banner Ads

Center City District Web siteFor many years Center City District has organized the Center City District Restaurant Week event where participating Center City restaurants offer a "price fixed" multiple course meals to their patrons. It is a great chance to try out those new restaurants you've been thinking about. I usually get to a couple every Restaurant Week.

I've worked projects with the communications team at Center City District over the last five years (including leading them through three complete redesigns of their Web site). Recently, while working with SoftOrigins I completed a series of banner ads to support the 2008 Restaurant Week event. Although banner advertising has undergone evolution over the years, it is still an effective way to promote an event, Web site, or special offer. All banner ads where designed to work with the event's print advertisements and other collateral.

They could have managed it themselves, but since we've been collaborating on Web design and development projects for the better part of a year now, it seemed the natural thing to do. Michael Donnelly took creative lead, while I was happy to execute the front-end development, hosting set-up, and share copywriting and information architecture responsibilities with Tom.

These two gentlemen are trustworthy, talented and committed to their clients. I can't think of better attributes for a service business—marketing or otherwise.
