Branding: Premier Exteriors

December 14th, 2015 by Ima Admin

Premier_Brochure-181x300Earlier this year the team at the Imagination Factory had designed and launched a mobile-responsive site for Premier Roofing and Exteriors. It was now time for this family-owned West Michigan roofing company to get a revamped brochure for use at tradeshows and as handouts that tied into their online marketing efforts.

Because the Imagination Factory spends a lot of time with its clients learning about their business, their unique selling points and amassing image assets to tell their story online, it allows us to be very productive in developing and re-purposing that information into other forms of media like the four-page printed piece to the left.

The Imagination Factory has been developing printed marketing materials for its clients since 1985. Give us a call if you need something similar.


Tradeshows: AIFI Banners

October 15th, 2015 by Ima Admin

AIFI_banner-118x300Long-time client, American International Foods, called on the Imagination Factory recently to develop some tradeshow collateral in the form of new handouts and booth banners.

Having previously designed their logo, brochures, and web presence, we were able to quickly work up new branding materials including booth handouts and this 6′ banner in time for the show.


Tradeshows: Tommy’s Tattoo Convention

September 29th, 2015 by Ima Admin

CTMAX_Tommys-300x300So… how does a maxillofacial surgeon (CTMAX) and a tattoo convention (Tommy’s) cross paths? Well, when the surgeon expands his practice to include non-invasive aesthetic enhancement and buys specialized picosecond laser equipment to address age spots and fine lines, but can also quickly, safely and painlessly remove all colors of tattoos… he finds himself taking a booth at one of the larger tattoo conventions in Connecticut.

Naturally, our client then turned to the Imagination Factory to whip up branding materials including banners, posters, brochures, business cards and unique promotional items including erasers, temporary tattoos, and laser-etched bottle openers.

Working backward from the tradeshow date, the imagination Factory not only designed/prepared all the artwork required, but sourced the items, and ensured their delivery to the client in advance of the show, allowing the client to relax and focus on their business. How can we assist you?


Site Launch: CTMAX ERASE

August 16th, 2015 by Ted Bailey

IFIblog_CTMXERASE_smLong-time client (since 1996) in Connecticut, CTMAX, branched out their services a few years ago to include non-invasive facial aesthetic enhancement/refinement.

Recently, they purchased a new and very advanced, pico-second laser as well as state-of-the-art skin cooling system for their practice. This pico laser/cryo cooler combination is very good at reducing fine lines, treating acne scars and removing blemishes and age spots. Its also extremely good at removing tattoos, even those with difficult colours, more quickly and less painfully than other methods generally in use.

For them it meant the need to announce the capability as there are only three of these lasers in Connecticut and embrace a market not typical from them. For us, this meant another logo and another sister website as a method to further brand and distinguish their services in the area.

Site Re-vamp: Borgman Ford

July 25th, 2015 by Ted Bailey

IFIblog_BORG_C_smIn addition to their main new/used auto, truck and commercial vehicle site, Borgman has numerous mini-sites which we maintain on their behalf. Each mini-site focuses on a specific model or group of models, so given the numbers of Fords and Mazdas out there, you can begin to get an idea of just how numerous we’re talking.

Although designed some time ago to be mobile friendly, by your friendly neighborhood web-slingers at the Imagination Factory, changes at the various search engines dictated that we revamp ALL the sites to be even more mobile responsive.

Fortunately, when we originally designed the original structure, we had done so using a multi-site concept which deploys a single CMS engine as the back-side foundation and then allowed us to spawn each mini-site as a child of the master. This allows us to use a common master design and codeset, then easily tweak each child to be unique sites on their own even w/ their own domain name. It also reduces re-design, maintenance and update time considerably.

There are so many mini-sites, we couldn’t begin to list them all, but head over to Borgman Ford Commercial Vehicles Used Cars Grand Rapids or Grand Rapids Ford Escape and you’ll get the idea.

IFIblog_ITCRV_smThese sites provide more information on each brand’s product line, offer specs as well as access to various online etail channels from where they may be purchased. All five are now tied together in the back by a common administrative structure making it easier to manage multiple sites.

Ecommerce: Batter’s Up

March 15th, 2015 by Ted Bailey

ballsuites_2015So spring has been a bit slow in arriving to the midwest AGAIN this year, but that hasn’t stopped the minor league baseball clubs from their need to prepare for a whole new season of fans.

And its time for the Imagination Factory to come to bat. We have developed a fairly simple online menu system that accommodates each clubs unique offerings, calculates prices real-time as the fans select items, accounts for their unique tax structures and collects / emails the pertinent order information to the club’s catering team.

We have a few new clubs this season and a few of the old ones are are sporting nifty new logos and/or even new major league affiliations.
