WEBSITE REFRESH - INNOVATION ISLAND

Jessica Pirson, Administrative Assistant
Innovation Island prides itself as the regional driver for accelerating business success through scientific innovation and technology. They help create and support entrepreneurship in our region for the technology community.  We've had the privilege of working with Innovation Island over the past 5+ years. Our relationship dates back to the days when Innovation Island was MISTIC. A few years back they made the transition from MISTIC to Innovation Island, we designed and developed a new website, and while it still functioned well, it was showing its age because their focus was refined along with their service areas.  Keeping in mind their shift in focus, new services, and goals, we got to work improving user-flow, updating  the navigation, sprucing up design on landing pages, and adding services pages. The next improvement will be tackling responsive because their mobile traffic continues to grow.

Website Launch for Sun Coast Consulting

Carrie Brisson, Digital Content Coordinator
Sun Coast Consulting is a prestigious firm offering engineering, consulting, and technical advisory for large-scale infrastructure projects. The website for Sun Coast Consulting did not offer much for information about their company or services, and therefore not offering a strategic advantage for them when attracting new employees or clients.  They came to us with a clear idea for the redesign of their website. Through meetings with them, we learned about their vision, and they were receptive to our suggestions to improve upon their ideas. The new website provides an improved information architecture, an impactful visual look, and more accurately communicates their goals and values.  Check out the website here: http://www.groupscc.com/

Website Redesign & Copywriting for Westmark Construction

Kristina Crowson, President
Westmark Construction is a well-established residential and construction firm here in Nanaimo. They had recently gotten a new website, but they were looking for something to have a larger impact on their clientele and SEO rankings. As well, they wanted to more accurately highlight their vast industry experience. Over the course of a few months - while involving nearly every member of our team! - we worked restructuring their information architecture and a complete visual redesign by our design team.  This also called for a ground-up rewrite of their website copy, which was done in-house by our digital content coordinator and focused on incorporating relevant, targeted keywords.  After design and content had been finalized, the project moved on to our technical team, who developed the website on Wordpress. They focused on ensuring the most relevant content was front-and-center and flowed smoothly when responding to different screen sizes.  Check it out at westmarkconstruction.ca!

WEBSITE LAUNCH - COUNTRY CLUB CENTRE

Sarah Bromley, Technical Director
You may have seen us post about it on our Facebook and Twitter shortly after the launch, but here’s the official blog post for the launch of the newly designed and developed Country Club Centre website! Four years ago, we programmed the previous iteration of Country Club Centre’s website. Although it worked great for them in its time, the age of smart phones and tablets meant that their non-responsive website wasn’t doing the job for its clientele.  This summer, we embarked on designing a brand-new, mobile-friendly website that was colourful and eye-catching. Check it out on all your devices! http://www.countryclubcentre.com/

WEBSITE LAUNCH - COASTLAND WOOD INDUSTRIES

Kristina Crowson, President
In the fall of 2014, Coastland Wood Industries Ltd. put out the request for proposals for a new website design and development. We submitted our proposal to build them an engaging, intuitive, and user-friendly web presence, and were ecstatic to have been chosen for the job! A large part of this project was getting acquainted with their industry, which included an exciting tour of their amazing facilities. After the tour, and meetings with their key staff to get a sense of their company, we set to work creating a website with an approachable and professional look that incorporated and strengthened their existing brand. As well, we wanted to draw attention to their dedication to sustainability and low environmental impact, including an awesome 100% log utilization!  Coastland Wood Industries is responsible member of the lumber industry, and their new website speaks to their dedication to their people, clients, and the environment!

BRAND-NEW WEBSITE LAUNCH - OMBOYS

Carrie Brisson, Digital Content Coordinator
The OMBOYS clothing line is the pet project of Jesse Jeans of Guava Apparel. OMBOYS is focused on RAOK (Random Acts Of Kindness) and raising awareness for Crohns, Colitis & IBS. The popularity of their apparel started to soar, but it was only sold locally through Guava. OMBOYS was looking to develop a cohesive online presence, as well as e-commerce functionality so that it could start selling their clothing worldwide!  As one of our first Wordpress sites, we kept the website simplistic, and focused on their spectacular photography, especially on the home page. Also, they have a pretty huge following on Instagram, which called for us to feed in the photos at the bottom of the website.  Everyone in our office kind of adores their gear, even getting a few pieces for themselves! Find something you’ll love!

WEBSITE LAUNCH - BERWICK RETIREMENT COMMUNITIES

Sarah Bromley, Technical Director
Array Web + Creative has developed a long-standing relationship with Berwick Retirement Communities. Over the past four years, we have completed projects, such as print ads and marketing materials, on almost a monthly basis! Over the past several months, Array has been working on doing a complete overhaul of their website, which is quite the undertaking. Along with the overarching Berwick corporate page, it includes a customized portal for each of the six retirement communities. The design team used natural textures and a palette of natural colors to align with the inviting, friendly environment of their communities. As well, it is a repository of information and easy to navigate, making users feel right at home. This is also the first website we have developed on Wordpress! We’re so excited to see this beautiful new website launch for Berwick, give it a gander for yourself!

WEBSITE LAUNCH - BLOCK DESIGN & DRAFTING

Kristina Crowson, President
It may be almost spring, but our winter of website announcements isn’t over! Kara Hihn from BLOCK is a talented interior designer making a name for herself in the central Vancouver Island area. She came to us with an existing website which was dark (white text on a black background) and didn’t adequately show off her quality work and services. In keeping with her existing brand identity, we designed the website in black, white, and grey tones, to allow the photographs of her portfolio stand out and do the talking. The clean and open layout reflects her philosophy to interior design and space planning. The website was developed for Wordpress, allowing her to frequently update her content and portfolio of work. BLOCK offers a wide range of services, and Kara’s insistence on custom and quality solutions will take her far. Keep an eye on BLOCK’s website for blog updates and the developing portfolio!
