Congratulations, TextPride!

One of the most enjoyable parts of this business is that we get really invested in our client’s success. Even if we play the smallest of roles, when things are good for our clients, we feel good, but when things are great, we get really excited and want to share their news.

TextPride Makes Waves

TextPride Makes Waves

About two weeks ago, TextPride, a young technology company who creates branded emoji (icons for the layman) for use in text messaging, participated in a “Tap the Future” contest. The event in Chicago, was sponsored by Miller Lite and showcased some great innovative firms. For those who are familiar with the program, it was like a version of ABC’s hit TV show “Shark Tank” complete with one of the shows stars, Daymond John.

At the end of the evening, TextPride won the contest, received a $20,000 prize and now has a chance at the national finals. Check out the Chicago Tribune with more details. They’ve also received some great national press in the last week.

We’ve been privileged to work with them on their website and other efforts. Congratulations to Evan Wray and Sean O’Brien! We hope to share more client success stories in the future. Stay tuned.

New Website Launch: Rue Dumaine Restaurant

Rue Dumaine is known throughout our area and beyond for their focus on local and high-quality ingredients. Over the years, their site became outdated and Anne, Tom and the “Krewe” at Rue Dumaine were ready for an update. We were faced with the challenge of designing and developing a beautiful sight that mirrored the beautiful food and atmosphere of the restaurant.

The Rue Dumaine website is responsive and fits to any size device.

The Rue Dumaine website is responsive and fits to any size device.

The site is responsive, built on the 996 Grid and features the SlickNav Navigation. We focused on highlighting certain features on mobile, such as the Open Table reservation plug-in, the phone number, hours, and social media icons. However, even though these features are prevalent, the food photography is also very eye catching. Luckily for us, Tina and Nick of 42Krewe Photography took some extraordinary cuisine photos that we were able to use on the site.

The Rue Dumaine clientele checks the site regularly to see each day’s different specials. To accommodate, we developed the site with a Drupal Content Management System — allowing the staff to change menus, wine lists, and more very easily. Anne also updates the blog each week, telling the story of each week’s menus and her inspirations behind each dish.

If you have been to Rue Dumaine (and you really should go!) you will notice their distinct personality. While Anne and her staff have won numerous awards, they are still very much down to earth. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Anne and Tom on this website and we hope it serves them well for a long time to come.

New Website Launch: Sidecar Global Catering

Sidecar Global Catering Website Design by the C-3 Group

Sidecar’s New Website Design

We recently launched a new website for Sidecar Global Catering located in Columbus, OH. The C-3 Group was able to work closely with that not-so-distant catering company to deliver a fresh, modern website design.

The driving force behind the development of the microsite was to provide more information for Sidecar’s customers and better analytics and maintenance internally for the catering department. C-3 was tasked in taking single pages from the Barcelona Restaurant & Bar, the parent company to Sidecar Global Catering, and developing a fully-serviceable microsite.

We are pleased to have had the opportunity to collaborate with owner Scott Heimlich and the staff of Sidecar Global Catering to complete the project.

Visit Sidecar to view their catering services, menu, party planning tips, pictures, who they are, and how they can make your event exceptional!
