Barefoot Charities Brochure

St. Augustine Graphic Design

One of the most beautiful pieces we've done owes much of it's appeal to the intriguing artwork displayed throughout this brochure. To promote their website and their cause, the good folks at Barefoot wanted to be able to market offline and have something to put in people's hands. We think that once you see these images, you won't be able to resist having some for yourself.

Westchester Dairy Distributors Brochure

Graphic Design St. Augustine

A pricelist does not have to look so plain. We continue building the Westchester Dairy Distributors brand with each piece added to the advertising and marketing of Westchester's very own "Milk Man". The friendly Holstein smiles here on the cover so when visitors get to the website, it's like coming home. While they are there, they can order some fresh, natural milk and other dairy. They deliver to your door. We deliver in print and online. ;-)

Manzer Landscape Design Brochure

Graphic Design St. Augustine

To build a brand there needs to be consistency from element to the next. When your printed pieces reflect your website, there is an immediate recognition that there was some planning involved, that there was thought behind the actions. That carries a lot of weight with consumers since they are used to it. Many small businesses can accomplish that brand building with some very simple planning.

In addition to online marketing of your website, the more traditional methods can help. Print your website address on everything you hand out or leave behind. The advantage is that you don't have to offer so much on paper any longer, but just enough to entice and provoke action.

NUWAY Biodiesel Logo

Logo Design St. Augustine, Graphic Design St. Augustine

Award winning brand design from GO2 is available to all clients, big and small. We were very interested in this project as we are very supportive of new fuel and alternate energy resources.

The design represents the transformation from organic green source to the golden energetic burst of color. We also intentionally mixed in some classic (or old fashioned?) industrial style typographic design so the name could also stand alone without the icon in some applications. We rarely render a brand ID but in this case we made sure that this could be converted to flat art without redesigning.

Since our experience includes some industrial design, we are always thinking beyond the computer screen or drawing board.

Paramount Center for The Arts

On screen graphics, St. Augustine Graphic Design

Our good neighbors, The Paramount Center for The Arts, have an incredible amount of talent coming through their doors each month. We created the layout, programming, and method of delivery behind their lobby display screen. It keeps patrons informed of upcoming shows, fundraising events, and film series.

We were happy to create this ongoing stream of animated slides as an alternative to a sinlge local file on one of their in-house systems that had to be overwritten each time there was a change, we devised a way of delivering this to their screen via the Internet. All updates are made remotely which makes for a very efficient operation. If you are looking for some innovative advertising, motion graphics, or both, please let us know, we love a good challenge.

Veronica Whitehead

Veronica Whitehead - Event Design, Production, and Management

Veronica Whitehead presented us with the challenge of creating the richest, most colorful, lush websites we have ever had the pleasure of designing. We were faced with thousands of photos to choose from to assemble a variety of carefully planned galleries. Veronica Whitehead and Company provides event design and production, and manages those gatherings around the globe. The site presents all aspects of her expansive repertoire with gorgeous photography from Spain, China, Russia, and more.

We created a flow through the site focused on imagery with intuitive navigation to browse the galleries. The Flash-heavy site is also fortified with our own brand of SEO and steadily gaining positions in the search engines. Who says you can't have a Flash site with great SEO?

Browse the site online, but we warn you to eat before you do. You will be starving by the time you make it to the contact page.

The Advertising Club of Westchester awarded this site with a Big W Award for 2009. We are thrilled to deliver award winning design to our clients in addition to expertly built websites built from the ground up.

Babyface Interactive

Logo Design St. Augustine

Babyface Interactive is a provider of software programming and website application development. They are contemporary masters and better than that- totally reliable and dedicated to their work. We should know, they are a strategic partner of ours and have been a part of some of our most succesful websites. We worked with them to create a clean fresh look for their logo; full of character and a colorful flair. We also created an icon as a signature piece to use as a fun little graphic bling. ;-)

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.

Yonkers Public Library

Yonkers Public Library

The Yonkers Public Library website was recently published after we redesigned the site with a fresh new interface and a rebuilt architecture to make it a content management system (CMS). As one of the member libraries of the Westchester Library System, they had seen how we transformed the WLS site into a user-friendly site with freshly updated content and many nice features.

YPL holds almost the same exact content as before but the delivery and presentation has been improved to current standards and should be a useful, productive site for some time to come. The structure of the site is modular like most we design and built so additions and expansion will be likely. That will be a huge benefit to the YPL and its membership.

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.

Morgan Construction & Cabinetry, Ltd.

Morgan Construction & Cabinetry, Ltd.

When we saw the type of work they did, we were very excited to design the website for Morgan Construction & Cabinetry, Ltd. The success of a showcase site such as this relies heavily on photography and we were fortunate to have many source images. Of course it also depends on how those images are displayed.
We often aim to design marketing support that reflect the quality or level of service that our clients provide. For Morgan, this meant we would be designing an exquisite website. We go the distance for all of our clients just as they do for theirs.
We redesigned again recently in 2015 as a responsive site.

Dance Expression

Dance Expression

The owners of one of the most successful dance studios in Westchester came to us to have their existing website redesigned. Dance Expression of Westchester had a CMS website that was difficult to use and somewhat limited in its functionality. Although it provided information about the studio, it was not presented in a way that reflected the artistry and refinement of this popular dance school.

We took some specific directions regarding color and content and came up with an engaging style for this state-of-the-art CMS website. This site's administrative functions allow the Dance Expression staff to update their site with ease from anywhere with an internet connection. Schedules, instructor bios, photo galleries, and video clips are all easily found by visitors.

COAST Water Control Products

St. Augustine Website Design | GO2 Media Design

COAST began for us in 2003 when we designed a logo for the H2O Guard company. We created illustrations of the products as part of the overall packaging. The company purchased COAST manufacturing and foundary in 2008 and H2O Guard products were adopted into the product. The COAST name was retained and is now COAST Water Control Products.

H2O Guard and GX3 (Green times three) are product brand identities we have designed along with the new COAST logo. The new COAST website is also online now with plans to be built out to contain product, instructions, news, environmental interests, green friendly resources, and other related information.

The Bird & Bottle Inn

The Bird & Bottle Inn

One of the Hudson Valley's well known fine dining and unique lodging experiences is now well represented in this newly released website. The Bird & Bottle Inn located in Garrison, New York is only a few miles north of northern Westchester county. Once known as Warren's Tavern, it has been there since 1761, operating in the colonial days.

Our assignment was to accurately portray the warm and welcome atmosphere visitors experience when they enter the historic inn. We provided a CMS application that allows events, press releases, menus, and other content to be added, organized, and edited simply and easily by the Bird & Bottle staff. In addition to the design and development of the site, we also provided location photography. 

We worked in collaboration with The Gold Standard who provided writing, photography, and direction on overall navigation and page flow.

Mesko Associates - Sandsac

Mesko Associates - Sandsac

We were called upon by Mesko Associates, LLC., to design a package wrapper for their popular SandSac® sand pail and to create a website for the product.

We produced a CMS website and created a simple method of e-commerce using PayPal. The site is a showcase for the eco-friendly and fun, multi-use canvas pail showing video clips, and allowing visitors to purchase SandSac online.

Harrick Scientific Products

Harrick Scientific Products

The website for Harrick Scientific Products was designed and built by GO2 Media Design. This site is actually a redesign of an existing site that needed an upgrade to the navigation and presentation of the product catalog.There was also a need to simplify editing and organization of the content. We used Drupal as CMS and employed the taxonomy to categorize the entire product list. This site was a challenge due to the unique nature of specific products while attempting to find common ground. Each product has various separate elements associated with it including data sheets, application specs, and tables of related accessories. Look for yourself to fully understand the complex nature of these products.

Babyface Interactive

Babyface Interactive

Our good friend and "ace" programmer, developer, and technological counsel is also the founder of Babyface Interactive. We have been working together with John Scilipote since 2006 and have collaborated on many projects.

We were given the opportunity to design a logo, and redesign BabyfaceInteractive.com. We were happy to help provide a fresh look and help present the services from one of the best programmers we've ever known.

Centec Solutions

Centec Solutions

Centec Solutions is an interesting website because of how it is used by its owners. It is an online catalog that gives them the capability to print any portion of that catalog or deliver as a multi-page PDF document, tailored specifically to individual clients. That is very flexible. They also create their own new pages in minutes. That is also pennies on the dollar compared to printing a 24 or 32 or 48 page catalog with 140+ products.
Centec owners came to us for some traditional catalog design and we had a different solution. We could have certainly designed and printed a catalog, but they really only wanted a relatively small number with a growing number of parts in the future. We suggested building their catalog within the CMS website and focusing on the printer-friendly aspect of the pages where would create a stylized look that would be a worthy substitute to the traditional printed book. 
So it's "green" friendly twice-- Less $$$ and less paper. That's a win/win/win situation.  (client/environment/us) ;-)

The Gold Standard

The Gold Standard

Redesign. Redevelop. Reorganize. Relief! This site packs a punch and that should be apparent from the very first view. We wanted to match the incredible depth of this Westchester, New York, PR firm with a presentation that communicates their level of expertise with style, high usability standards, and an overall experience that leaves visitors with only one thing on their minds, "Where do we sign up"? (It's actually easy to find so they won't really have to look very far...)For our friends at The Gold Standard, they now have a state-of-the-art CMS website that allows them to easily rewrite content and create press releases with images that are categorized by client, automatically archived, and offered in a stylized printer friendly view.Visit the site online.

Our clients say...

"Love the feel and colors!  The alignment with the outside and inside sections... it seems very "right" to me ... I am really excited about the site."
