The Creative Details
Graphic Design
We have been using Illustrator (an the complete Adobe suite) since its inception to create visually appealing designs with impact. From corporate identity, logos, business cards, and stationary to catalogs, brochures, and fliers we excel from concept to print. We love vector graphics and incorporate them into almost everything we create.
Flash / Animation
We have been working with interactive Flash for over 6 years and have a traditional arts background that we feel lends more “life” to our digital creations. 
Photo Manipulation
We offer both “special effects” and post-production work to not only enhance traditional imagery but also make fantasy a reality. 
Our focus is on creative photography  but our professional product photography benefits from this approach infusing new life into traditional product shots.  We love on location shoots using natural light (or lack there of) but we also have an in-house studio for a controlled lighting environment.
We can replicate any style, work in any medium, from full-color, detailed, visceral comics to loose and savvy New Yorker style ink cartoons. Using both digital and traditional techniques we achieve superior results in less time.
Character design / Games
We also have a keen interest in game and character development. We have extensive experience in 3d lighting, texturing and modeling. We also have interior design, prototyping, and furniture design experience that assists us in delivering superior work.
The Technical Details
We have built complex (but intuitive!)CMS based sites with video upload/conversion, multi-level access content approval, and social networking. Generally getting hundreds of modules, custom themes, and e-commerce to coexist beautifully & peacefully is one of our specialties.
We are fluent in most majors content management systems including Drupal, WordPress (MU), Joomla and many of the e-commerce platforms. Plus we know how to integrate it all with  SSL Encryption, credit card processing and payment gateways. We also have experience in search engine optimization, pay-per-click/web advertising, php, ajax, css, js, x/HTML and others.
Speed & optimization should never be overlooked as this is where many CMS based sites in particular lose visitors. We are familiar with an array of techniques that significantly reduce pageload times while also greatly reducing server demand.
We have created, designed & modified many themes based on a variety of styles and standards - naturally all are tested for cross browser/system compatibility and standards compliance.
