Spa Marketing Materials
A new approach to achieving a youthful look

Though the core of this business was focussed on a high-tech approach to "non-surgical body reconturing", we created an aesthtic and messaging that took a very different direction.

To resonate with the audience, we incorporated a graceful, elegant image -- one that evoked a sense of youth, health, and relaxation.

This project included logo design, a Web site, business cards, and brochure.

Platinum Builders Presentation Folder
Make a lasting first impression...

Platinum Builders is a custom home building company in Madison, Wisconsin. Platinum Builders needed a presentation folder that showcased their work and gave a broad overview of how their company could help customers, but also had the ability to customize information that was included.

The solution was to build a presentation folder/booklet that highlights the beautiful craftsmanship of actual Platinum Builder homes with vibrant photos taken by Herkimer, and inset text boxes with information. The folder can be customized by adding inserts to the back page, which is also a folder slot.

Magazine Advertisements
Ads for a wide range of companies

Herkimer created these ads for different companies, with very diverse audiences. 

Marketing Materials - Property Management/Development
A high-end look for a new development

We worked with the developers of VanBuren Place to create a set of collateral materials to help them promote this exciting new property.

Market research indicated that their target audience was young professionals both single and couples. We selected contemporary colors and a iconic style that reflects their proximity to a prairie, marsh, and other nature.

The development has been enormously succesful, and was fully rented within three weeks from when they began accepting applications.

Health Coach Marketing Materials
Vibrant message for a successful health coach

Anke is a dynamic, intelligent, and very successful health and life coach. Her target market centers on equine enthusiasts.

We worked with her to create a high-energy look, that carried a positive and wholistic message.

Inspired engineering through our zoom lens

As part of the new In-Form Web site, we photographed twenty of their most unique recent product designs.

These six represent a wide cross-section of those photos, giving you a look at our work both in and out of the studio.

Location and Food
Visiting an old friend is so refreshing...

It's fun to stop by Madisons to shoot. Though under new ownership, Madisons will always hold a unique place in our hearts, as they were our very first client. We stopped-by recently with our camera to capture a few new menu items.

The best part was sampling taking photos of the entrees. 

Madison's is a classy place, perfect for a business meeting, impressing a date, or watching the game.

Ale Asylum Interior and Process
Addressing a very specific aesthetic

Not too long following their opening on Madison's east side, we photographed the interior spaces of the Ale Asylum.

Creatively, our goal was to provide photos that extended their awesome brand.

Facility Interior
Bright, airy, and sophisticated

These photos were taken at Capital Fitness following a recent major remodel.  

They showcase a number of different spaces on all three floors within the facility.

Buildings and Landscapes
Beautiful architecture blended with nature

Placing building photos in their best light takes patience, skill and a little help from the weather.

These photos were captured for an assortment of clients for both Web and print projects.

Food pictures are among the most interesting and gratifying types of photography.

We never leave a shoot hungry.

Apartment Exterior
Apartment Amenities to make you want to move right now

Performance Exterior
Elegant Simplicity

Performance Exteriors & Contracting is a new Herkimer client and a fun group to work with. The site that we built for them is simple, but a lot of fun. Users get to the home page and know exactly where to go with large callouts to the main services. To add a bit of excitement to the mix, the logo and social media icons were programmed to spin when a user hovers over them. The Gallery showcases past work from PE&C and this is where they REALLY shine so the site needed to really work for them here. Their impressive imagery is showcased in an interactive gallery.

Website Highlights:

  • Built on Drupal 7 Content Management System
  • Utilizes a mobile responsive theme to look good on any device
  • Interactive css elements to add a bit of pizzazz 
  • Easy navigation
Capital Fitness
Gym Site Gets a Workout

Capital Fitness came to Herkimer with an existing WordPress site that was in need of updating. The WordPress site was difficult to use and although it had a Content Management System, fell short of expectations with a number of hurdles to editing. The site was set up in a way that required the end-user to know a good deal of HTML in order to make site changes and updates.

For several months Herkimer cared for the edits on the Word Press site while working on a brand-new, mobile-responsive Drupal 7 site. The end results proved to be worthwhile. When the new Capital Fitness site was launched it was like flipping a light switch and putting the power back into the client's hands. With the launch of the new site and a quick training, their staff was able to dive in and make their own edits. The new site saved them from a high monthly retainer fee on the WordPress site.

The new site has a very dramatic color palette and intense photos to compliment the design.

Site Highlights:

  • Simple Display of Gym Events Schedule
  • Mobile-responsive site design 
  • Highlight pages for Sangha Yoga and Elevation Spa
  • e-Commerce Integration for selling products
  • Drupal 7 content management system
