Charles Griffin Intelligence, LLC

Responsive Website Design in Saint Augustine

Communications are not necessarily literal when it comes to marketing and advertising. We like to call it "atmospheric" in the case of Charles Griffin Intelligence. There was a "feel" our client was attempting to evoke with photography and left it to us to put those in position and set them in motion. We were more than happy to assist.

Collaboration with our clients is important to the success of our work and we are always open to their ideas and concerns. We will act as your experts, giving you honest appraisals based on knowledge and experience. We will not shy away from a difficult critique when we feel something could be better and vice versa, we are not primadonnas and can take direction.

This "Website in a Day" began as one of our Smart Site products and played out very well for our client. Once the initial site was built and online, we were called back to improve upon the styling. That is the scenario we envision for some of you- need for a very professional site, and then build onto it as the business grows and budgets allow or needs dictate. Our client had their content ready to go, and we literally built out a CMS site in 24 hours.

Site was redeveloped as a responsive design in 2015.

Hemlock Hill Farm Logo

Logo Design St. Augustine

Hemlock Hill Farm is a long standing, working family farm in Westchester County New York. The DeMaria family took their farm online with a website we built for them. As a part of the overall design work we did, a logo was a main component. We worked closely with the client to deliver their vision, and were successful in making something that is warm and welcoming. See it in place on the Hemlock Hill Farm website.

GO2 Media Design Corporate Identity

Graphic Logo Design St. Augustine

Our own brand logo. Born in late 2008 in time for the launch of GO2 Media Design, Inc. We wanted to present something fresh and memorable as always but also something that said something immediately to the viewer.

Designer Timothy Wood used a rather traditional typographic (showcard and sign painter, actually) device to fill the open "O" with a dot, at the same time making it a classic "target" symbol. The logotype is based on the Avant Garde typeface.

Concorde Personnel

Responsive Website Design in Saint Augustine

Concorde Personnel was in need of a redesign and wanted a site they could manage themselves. Because they are an employment company, they needed a way to post and manage jobs within many categories.

We created a CMS with some customized functionality where each person that posts a job receives all correspondence related to that job. Jobs can be published easily but also unpublished but not deleted to save time if the same job becomes available more than once. In addition to the customized CMS, we have injected our own brand of SEO and Concorde is getting many great positions in the search engines and a steady flow of candidates responding to their offers.

This site was also awarded a Big W from the Advertising Club of Westchester in 2009.

All Fired Up!

All Fired Up! A celebration of Clay in Westchester County New York

We had the great pleasure of designing and developing this website for the county-wide group art exhibit. Provided with a style guide, we went to work with logos, typography, and a color palette to create the finished website.

We worked with the WAC staff to adjust and edit the layouts and CMS admin to fine tune the site. We had the challenge of arranging a variety of content and keep it streamlined and manageable.

The success of the site was widespread and recently awarded a Big W from the Advertising Club of Westchester for Interactive Media: Non-Profit Website. We are fortunate to work with great people, well designed content, and recognition from our peers.

Lori Lustig Executive Search

Lori Lustig Executive Search

There are some websites that make fantastic examples of how less makes more impact. We worked with Lori Lustig on this site closely and it was relatively easy because she was so decisive, knowing exactly what she wanted. We are both extremely happy with the results.

This site contains examples of some very elegant Flash animation. We are of the opinion that a Flash intro should be engaging and not invite a visitor to "skip" it. We will typically argue to build the intro directly into the home page to increase usability, allowing visitors to navigate from the very first screen.

Lori's logo won a Big W Bronze award in 2008 since it was completed prior to the launch of the site, and we were honored twice with this job when the website was also awarded a Big W Silver in 2009. Visit the site online.

Venus Virtual Smile

Venus Virtual Smile

Venus Virtual Smile is a custom built online web application using Flash, PHP, and MySQL to provide a fun online experience and the abiity to make your own cosmetic dental makeover.

Visitors can upload their own snapshots into the site and use specially built tools to either drag smiles, or mask out their teeth and position pre-set "smiles" into position to see what they would look like if they had a "Venus Smile".

What a great marketing tool for the folks at Heraeus Kulzer and all of their Venus Dentists. It has provided may potential makeover patients with a fun glimpse of what "could be"...

We also recreated the entire application for a trade show kiosk where an imbedded camera was able to provide a "live" snapshot for visitors.

PRESH Medspa

PRESH Medspa

PRESH. The name is unusual and immediately reminds us of "fresh" and that was part of the plan all along. We built the entire PRESH brand from scratch. We were approached by a client that had done their homework and had reviewed hundreds of websites. They also refused to settle for anything less than the best. We were happy to oblige. Challenging at every step of the way, this job proved to be a smashing success and remains at the top of our portfolio.

PRESH MedSpa is a complete job that we saw through from the beginning discussions of what the PRESH brand would represent to the opening of the spa and continued support in the form of menu brochures, cards , stationery, and storefront signage. We were able to utilize all of our capabilities to create the brand and offer advice throughout the entire process. We designed and produced lighted displays, and full page, color advertising in and around South Florida.

The PRESH Medspa website won a Big W Silver in 2007 from the Advertising Club of Westchester.

Westchester Library System

Westchester Library System

The Westchester Library System supports 38 libraries in communities throughout the county. The site is a resource that expands and changes constantly with contributions from those 38 member libraries and the WLS staff. We were given the task of building this site around a Content Management System that would support the incredible amount of information that is organized under one site.

In addition to the CMS architecture and administrative tools, and the interface design, there were five databases reassembled and integrated under the WLS branded site. Recursos is a spanish language database that was taken from a series of static HTML pages to an MySQL database and administrative control panel to ease additions and maintenance.

"I have known Tim for many years, first as a colleague and then as a vendor. I have used Tim's Web design services to support projects I run for the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University, and I frequently recommend GO2 Media to colleagues and friends. His work never disappoints. Tim combines out of the box thinking with a deep knowledge of the mechanics of Web design and production, which results in fresh and productive Web sites.
