Our WorkTells the Story

High-Impact Web Productions
A variety of video, animation, music, sound effects, voice-over and dynamic copy are expertly crafted together into unique Web experiences that captivate the audience.

gimmesound.com In 2009 we launched gimmesound.com, the New Music Pipeline supporting thousands of independent musicians, with free, legal music downloads and online advertising.

Fly AmeroFly Amero of the band Orleans
We launched a new Web site for national recording artist Fly Amero just in time for Orleans' 2008 European Tour.

Fly's new site offers stunning photos by his wife, Donna, along with full discography, biography, mailing list, touring info, CD sales and downloads, photos and video.

Premier Travel Web Site

We completely overhauled the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce's tourism site, combining breathtaking visuals and powerful search, sort and select features with a highly intuitive design to produce one of the Web's premier travel sites.

Launched in June 2005, the new Web site and accompanying Web application replaced several legacy systems previously maintained on in-house servers. Today, using one intuitive Web-based interface, Chamber staff have total, instantaneous control over visuals, content and membership information, thereby dramatically reducing errors, overhead and technology costs.
