While our portfolio of work is diverse in nature, thanks largely to successful word of mouth referrals, we have found ourselves often working in a couple of industry niches; Automotive – due to our significant experience and personal interests and Financial Planning – given the unique compliance process, rules and regulations involved, in addition to a number of local small businesses in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, and surrounding parts of the Washington DC Metro area – where we can better accommodate in person communication and utilize personal and complimentary business connections, near and far.
With that said, we are by no means limited to any area of business, geographical location or size and nature of project. The flexible approach we take in communication, and research we perform before delivering our tailored proposal will give you the confidence you need in our ability to meet your needs.
Check out a selection of our projects that cover a range of scenarios, platforms and areas of focus. If you can’t see something similar to what you’re looking for, that doesn’t mean we haven’t tackled it, so please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
The Revival Motoring brand has a family of podcasts, a print magazine, a Youtube channel and a range of apparel. They had long outgrown their self-build-website platform, finding it restrictive, and holding back their growing brand and big aspiration. That’s when they turned to us!
Primarily offering blog/content which is regularly renewed in house, the site features un-intrusive ecommerce capabilities and specialist integrations that allow them to prominently showcase and update the many media outlets the brand uses.
SMOKE + MIRRORS
Innovative and modern Baltimore hair salon Smoke + Mirrors needed a portfolio style website to serve as a showcase for their amazing salon space, work produced and staff bios, while displaying clear information the products and services available.
Multiple additional integrations were used in conjunction with existing salon systems that facilitate the purchasing of gift cards and product via affiliated third party sites.
TAROX PERFORMANCE BRAKES
Established Italian manufacturer TAROX required a direct to consumer ecommerce solution, specifically geared toward the North American market.
Their vast range (even after being refined for the US market) consists of thousands of part numbers, each available in many different configurations, resulting in tens of thousands of SKUs. Item listings can be filtered progressively by the customer via multiple routes, including vehicle lookup, and extensive product information and resources are concisely packaged along while displaying selection-responsive images (some of which were photographed and/or edited by us.
Stock control is 2-way integrated with the company’s existing accounting software, seamlessly harmonizing online and offline sales.
SHEPHERDSTOWN COMMUNITY CLUB
We’re incredibly proud of being based in the small town of Shepherdstown, West Virginia, so when we were approached by the SCC, a 501c3 membership club that also manages a couple of public rental spaces in town, we more than happy to help!
We designed them a fresh looking and informative new site, with an event calendar and multiple contact forms to assist them with their bookings and information requests. Using an ecommerce platform the site is able to process payments for memberships, event tickets and donations.
All photography used was captured by Anna.
REVOLUTION ROD & CUSTOM
When a long standing customer opened a new Hot Rod shop in PA, he approached us with a few ideas of a company name, and not much else! Beyond the logo design we produced, this was as much about the process as it was the product.
Securing a suitable domain name, establishing an initial online presence before committing to producing business cards, staff uniforms, promotional items for them, and (at this moment) putting into place a plan to build the full website once the required content is produced, and resources (time!) become more available.
THE HOUSE OF KOBE
Another project close to our hearts on a number of levels! Anna originally designed the House of Kobe website while working a role that pre-dates Cardinal Creative Agency, including taking all of the photos used.
Thanks to us staying in closely touch with the restaurant in the time since (read: eating lots of Sushi and Hibachi) we were presented with an opportunity to overhaul the site, primarily its functionality and device responsiveness.
Testament to Anna’s original work, she re-used all of the original photography, providing an economical yet hugely impactful upgrade.
