SoyKaas Launches New WebSite

My job get's easy when working for great clients. We had the pleasure to build a new web presence for their soy cheese.

PanosBrands came to Rinck Advertising for a re-branding of their whole line of products. Soykaas was the first to be focused on. Based mostly on some great recipes and product photography, this site has taste appeal. I used jquery for the homepage roll-overs as well as some interior section sliders and panels.

Rinck Advertising - Full Service Creative Agency

In October of '08 I was hired as a Digital Manager for Rinck Advertising in Auburn Maine. Along with maintaining their existing client base, building a new online brand for the company was a major priority. Using Joomla as a CMS and a team of talented professionals, this site has Won numerous awards including a Silver - WC3 and a Gold -Golden Arrow Award.

As a full time employee, I was in-charge of overseeing the production of this site. This was a team effort, my role was producing the theme along with the information architecture. I continue to maintain the on-going efforts for this site as well as the Search Engine Optimization.

Indoor Plant Kingdom Website

IPK is opening up a brick-and-mortar store in Portland Maine. But before they go through the process of renting a space and setting up a store, they decided to build out an online presence to start. They contracted me to build a foundation for them to build and maintain themselves without an in-house developer.

Client needed a developer to help build out an e-commerce website. The brick-and-mortar store will be opening soon, but wanted to start online orders. Using Joomla and the open-source shopping cart Virtuemart, I developed an eCommerce website for IPK to sell their products. This gave the client the option to set up shopping promotions, discount coupons and wholesale groups. The client now maintains the website and is in the process of adding more content to the site. This site is live, but still in the beginning stages of development.

GROfoods Cafe Website

GRO recently opened up in Portland Maine. Building the presents in Portland, a great city for food and culture is a challenging within itself. They contracted me to build a community website for them to build and maintain and GRO without an in-house developer.

Client needed a developer to help build out a community website with an e-commerce component. They needed to advertise their cooking classes and restaurant promotions. Using Joomla to produce a full community website, I built a presence for GRO to promote their products and drive customers to the restaurant. The client now maintains the website and is in the process of adding more content to the site. This site is live, but still in the beginning stages of development. Watch this site as it develops into a wealth or information.

4tell Solutions

4tell™ Solutions, a Sustainable Performance Governance Solutions was ready to update their static website. Through a referral, they contact me to consult on the production of their new website. I worked with their team to develop a framework for the marketing team to promote 4tell™'s products and solutions.

4tell™ was in need for a designer/developer to help engineer the foundation for their future online efforts. They are mostly a .net environment but wanted a clean CMS for development that their A.E. and Project managers could be trained to maintain updates. Drupal gave us the environment we needed to control the permissions and allow certain users to access only their sections of the site to update. Working with 4tell™'s Chief Marking Manager to develop the existing look.

Group Dynamic

Contracted by Spark Creative to co-produce the redesign of the Group Dynamic website. Joomla was the solution that allowed us to train the client to update and maintain the website without having an in-house developer on staff.

Spark Creative needed someone to consult on the production of this website. The design would be a collaborative effort the client, Spark and myself. They requested the site be "dynamic" and clean for their user base. A custom theme and styled components is what makes this site stand out from others. The clean content architecture lets users find the information and forms needed to process their claims. Taking the time to learn the business helped us build a usable site.
