ANIMATION

Tours, convention displays, education and sales tools driving websites and kiosks.

American Farmland Trust

American Farmland Trust

was a pure concept presentation that was received by text handouts with no associated visualization. An animated presentation was illustrated to make all key points in a non-threatening and visually accessible format.

T.Rowe Price Rollover Planner

is an example of how time-intensive meetings requiring the involvement of management and staff can be replaced by interactive, animated tools. Other examples in this category would include HR required education for health care benefit selections for new hires or staff changing insurance carriers. In other industries there are regulatory requirements for continuing education of HAZMAT procedures, security protocols and client service policies.

Tradeshow Presentation

Tradeshow Presentation

displays how an animated presentation can affordably push key sales points in a movie format. This is in contrast to a 3D “fly-through” animation which is more expensive and does not address the key points that will influence a customer’s buying decision. Think of animation as a television commercial. To get the best value from your marketing investment, ALL of your sales tools should emphasize the important points of decision.

INTERFACE

GUI’s for programming systems used by clients such as Bearing Point, NSF, and NOAA.

Wildlife Conservation
Society

is a learning module delivered by “BIG CHALK” to compliment the educational programs of the Bronx Zoo. There is study content and interactive gaming to reinforce the lessons of the Congo Gorilla Forest.

National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration

[NOAA] is programming their core database tools behind an Eight Inks graphic user interface. NOAA needed a design that includes the regulatory style elements while delivering live data. Eight Inks developed a user-friendly tool that fosters usage of their online grant system.

National Science
Foundation

[NSF] was starting from scratch with a programming team and no hierarchy. Eight Inks provided the interface and content structure to deliver the database-driven content of their ePublish web tools. The project required understanding how information is organized and utilized in addition to the design task of a user-friendly interface.

 

Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colours flowers, so does art colour life.

~ John Lubbock

 

BRANDING

Coordinating visual style and interactivity with existing brands or with a new campaign.

Regal Homes

did not have a URL reserved, never mind a web presence that promoted their business. Eight Inks interviewed the principals of Regal Homes, and incorporated the renderings from Architectural Art, to create an identity for Regal Homes. Print materials that continue the new brand were also developed. The Eight Inks design recommendation focused on tools to “prequalify” prospects in a way that maximizes the productivity and profitability of each sales center.

Architectural Art

was like the barefoot cobbler – a busy art studio with no time to develop its own web presence. Eight Inks stepped in to update online tools and establish continuity across all marketing and PR efforts. The new design incorporates search indexing priorities in addition to conveying that the studio delivers a breadth of both traditional and cutting edge digital media.

Settlement Room

offers online listing and transaction management tools, and provides their subscribers with the option of “co-branding” database tools. This way, the subscriber’s customers don’t know that content is driven by SettlementRoom servers, but instead see only the continuity of the subscriber website. Eight Inks interprets the brand of each SettlementRoom client and prepares a new interface for the SettlementRoom data that has continuity with the Client website.
