Products

iPhone AppAndroid App

Using our third iteration of the Vokol Conference platform, the Willow Creek Association Global Leadership Summit App builds upon our already existing platform, taking Vokol to the next level with a higher degree of interactivity than we have ever had before. We have added user feedback in the form of polls, increased usability with speaker notes, and best of all, have finally added an Android version of the application.

Great thanks goes out to the Ideation Consultancy and the entire Willow Creek Association team that made this possible for us.

Capital Broadcasting Company

Objective

To work with the Capital Broadcasting Company

Faces

Objective

To (finally) create our own children's game!

Products

iPhone App

We've been itching to do our own game since our company has been in existence, yet, it just always seemed that there was never a right or good enough time to do it. Well, finally we decided there was never going to be a right or good enough time so we just did it. And we loved doing it.

Pulling inspiration from all our kids' sticker books, we decided we wanted an application where children ages 2-5 (and their parents) could decorate blank faces with accessories. We did all our own original artwork and even our own original soundtrack. We added a couple revenue streams in the form of un-lockable in-app-purchase rooms and voila! - our first game. We hope children out there enjoy it! We certainly enjoyed making it.

The MSHA folks are in love with their new mobile presence and we are looking forward to future opportunities to develop applications for them.

Raleigh Vein

Objective

To create a unique brand and identity for the Raleigh Vein & Laser Center

We don't do a lot of branding and identity work as standalone offerings, but in the case of Raleigh Vein & Laser Center, we got the chance to produce some of the best branding and identity work we've seen ourselves do yet. We only took one shot at it, and we nailed it.

Teleflex

Objective

To create a microsite design for Teleflex's WECK Vista and WECK EFx surgical opening and closing tools

Our task here was to take Teleflex's WECK Vista and WECK EFx surgical opening and closing instruments and build a microsite capable of being both beautiful and useful in its display of information. A fairly small design project (only two screens), the simplicity of the design belies a complexity found in a balance between form and function.

Summit Sermons

Objective

To take the Wordpress Sermon Browser plugin and make it work as a temporary solution for the Summit Church

We were mortified when we first discovered what some sermon hosting solutions charge churches for their offerings. As a result, we jumped at the chance to work with the Summit Church to help them produce a temporary solution by modifying the Wordpress Sermon Browser plugin until they could get a better, more permanent solution in place.

Prenatal Oral Health Program

Objective

To build a web portal for dental and OBGYN health professionals practicing Prenatal Oral Health

Products

prenataloralhealth.org

Somewhere in the middle of developing bOHP, the University of North Carolina's School of Dentistry, in partnership with the University's School of Medicine Department of OBGYN, received a grant from the Blue Cross Foundation to produce a web version of the Prenatal Oral Health Program (pOHP) using the same base software that we were already building for bOHP.

The resulting portal is close enough to bOHP's web and design structure so as to share resources (since both programs were structured similarly), yet be different enough to target a completely different audience from bOHP.

The Gospel Summit

Objective

To build a custom event registration system for The Gospel Summit conference

Products

thegospelsummit.com

One of the first challenges newer conferences always face is a technology decision on how to take registrations over the web. There are plenty of capable web tools out there these days to make this happen, but often times they don't work for custom registration requirements. This was the case for The Gospel Summit's conference in 2012 and we were glad to help build something for them.

To create a better, more beautiful conference app platform

Having built two conference applications from the ground up, we put all our best ideas together and started crafting the Vokol conference app platform.

Products

babyoralhealthprogram.org

The University of North Carolina's school of dentistry approached us originally to contract for an iPad version of their Baby Oral Health Program's (bOHP) presentation. After several planning meetings, however, we ended up concluding that really what bOHP needed was a fully interactive web portal.

All parties involved are extremly proud of the final product and all of its pieces - all the way from design and identity all the way to successful conversion of a print presentation (flipbook) into an interactive presentation.

Objective

To create a native iPhone version of the deal-grabbing Save City platform

Products

iPhone App

When Capital City Broadcasting asked us to partner with them in producing a native iPhone version of their deal-grabbing Save City platform, we jumped at the chance. Users are given the power in the Raleigh-Durham area to find deals (not paid coupons) offered by local businesses exclusively to Save City users. The iPhone version facilitates this even further by allowing users to sort and grab deals based on proximity to the nearest deals.

Much thanks goes out to Kira Kroboth and her entire team at Krobe Interactive for making the contact for this work. Thanks to their efforts and excellent management skills, this was easily one of the smoothest projects our team ever worked on.

Objective

Products

iPhone App

As one of the most complex pieces of software we have ever developed, the Certified Profile iPhone application stands as a major accomplishment for our team. There were many challenges to this project including strict security measures, immensely long data streams, and an overwhelmingly large feature set, but thanks to our own team members and the diligence of the Castle Branch development team, we were able to pull through with a solid product that not only works as well as their website, but looks great too.

A special thanks also goes out to our friends at Fabrik Agency in downtown Raleigh who got us the connection as well as designed the beautiful application.

Products

iPhone App

We love working with the Ideation folks (as most folks can tell from our portfolio) and the chance to help put together an iPhone app for the Ideation Conference 2012 was no different.

What makes this application completely different from other conference apps, however, is the built-in networking features. The Connect section offers conference attendees the option to show their personal profiles (along with their interests, twitter handles and other goodies) to all the other attendees at the conference. Including a built-in messaging feature makes it that much easier for conference attendees to network faster, quicker, and better than before.

Our team also took the opportunity to use this application to start work on a large-scale conference platform we are calling vokol.co - bringing ease-of-use, useful features, and beauty into a single conference platform. Stay tuned at http://www.vokol.co for more information.

We were given the opporunity to help create a fully designed online retail store for Vitacare. In conjunction with another design agency, our team was able to slice and fit the intricate, custom design into a retailing engine built for the web.

One of the chief accomplishments we wanted to highlight with this particular project was the incredibly detailed javascript implementation within the design, a key example of which is the use of a database driven switching of visual elements (and consequently animation) of different pieces of the framing of products based upon options and colors that are selected.

Touch Med Mobile provides a unique approach to the quickly expanding area of mobile healthcare platforms.

The first application they asked for was a Fan Video section where an XML content feed would power a facebook tab that was devoted to displaying featured user submitted instructional videos and reviews on the SkinCeuticlas product lines.

The second application was a limited time sampling promotional offer which forced users to 'Like' the SkinCeuticals tab before allowing them to sign up for a drawing that took place daily to send submitted users free samples of SkinCeuticals products.
