Project Info

Sherman Mills is a village within a neighborhood within a city. Artists and artisans, creative entrepreneurs, loft-dwelling residents, gallery and cafe owners are attracted to the historic art-infused space.

Our work began with identity design. Ongoing work includes extending the brand: including print, interactive, and environmental graphic design.

This project was completed in three phases:

  • phase one – 3 weeks, basic web presence
  • phase two – 6 weeks, library of available rental spaces
  • phase three – 6 weeks, business directory

A primary goal was to create a platform on which management and leasing staff could hide, edit, and publish listings based on availability.

modules:
CCK, Views

Development time includes the creation of assets.

The site looks amazing design is crisp and very good use of colour. I did like the splash animation, even though I’m not a fan of splash animations, but I know how clients are. It’d be nice if it had volume control and maybe a skip button, but other than that the site is fantastic! Definitely worth 5 stars!

Thanks so much Nicolas.
Yes the flash was the clients wish. When we showed original designs it didn’t include the flash.

Unfortunately, the client isn’t interested in doing any site enhancements. If you click on the flash it does take you to a surprise screen that has something to do with events or marketing of services. Right now its about the online directory.

Appreciate you taking time to comment.

Ah, all things come to an end.
We’ll be giving up this project. Starting to disassemble. Taking the business directory and community part down first. Then turning what’s left over to the client completely.
