Allworth reDesign

allworth.jpgAllworth Design, one of PLY’s oldest clients, call us back for a redesign of their site. We only had about a four week window and limited resources. Sometimes, the best things happen when you’re under pressure. The objective was simple — create an experience that showcased Allworth Design’s exceptional work through photography, and use a little text as possible. In addition, we knew the site needed to feel different and have a stand-out experience. All of the page views are AJAX-driven and use jquery for smooth transitions.Check it out

Props for SRTMC

The Spokane Regional Transportation Management Center recently shared the following feedback recently captured on their website (www.srtmc.org):

“I’ve seen a number of traffic webcam sites on the internet, but if I
could vote for the BEST – I’d vote for yours. It is by far the easiest
to use, best layout, etc. You did a great job on this.”

– Jim A.

We love this kinda stuff! When an end user acknowledges the quality and usability of our work, it carries a much greater compliment than any industry award could offer. This is why we do what we do.

I guarantee none of the sign creators were swiss-trained designers, yet they all communicate a unique attitude and spirit.
