We were recently contacted by the cool folks down at Ted’s Garage about building a new site for them. Ted’s Garage has a great reputation around urban Birmingham for being one of the hippest, most happening joints around for hosting your event, so we were thrilled to join in with the Ted’s team on this [...]
The motorsports marketplace has its own challenges somewhat different from other industries. We work from a master product / part number relationship. We have high demand for very descriptive product listings.
In the world of off road recreation and competition, CRAWL magazine has an immediate reputation. Nearly unbelievable photography, well written content and that great non-corporate feeling all contribute to a bi-monthly publication that is read several times over in most off road enthusiasts homes.
This site has been a very long time coming. For any of you that follow the custom car (or Grand Touring) scene, you know who these guys are. Their 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle has been in the media quite a bit as of late. You can check out their site for more information on this project [...]
While doing some official industry research (better said, “surfing the forums at Pirate4x4.com”), I came across a company making a big splash in the custom screen printing world, Magnum Ink. The shirt designs I saw were both innovative, grungy and clean at the same time, something very hard to pull off with one creative work. [...]
Faith Racers contacted us in hopes of getting a quick website built that looked good, wasn’t overly expensive and was easy to update. Enter, Wordpress, the same software on which our OctaneMedia.com site is built.
This was one of our first custom ecommerce websites. Rated X had some specific requirements that prevented use of an off of the shelf package, so putting together a custom solution better served their needs. They actually have two websites, both featuring their own products and content (photos, etc.), but are both managed from one admin interface. This vastly simplifies updating the site.
The site features a fully featured, secure content management system which can be used to manage all of their products, race teams, project vehicles, and high definition videos. The videos are hosted on a social media video sharing site called Vimeo. This reduces hosting costs and provides another outlet for their video content.
Octane Media was contacted by the Rocket City Rock Crawlers to film the Annual King of the Hill competition. We put together a team of five camera operators and recorded about 70 hours of footage. The footage is currently being compiled into a DVD for distribution.
The overwhelming direction given to this project was, “make it fun”. Understanding that this site was geared toward children’s dentistry gave us the opportunity to design the look of the site in a way that would appeal to children, but still provide the necessary information for their parents.
The trailer industry is not one known for pushing the limits of design or technology, so we wanted to jump at the opportunity to raise the bar with a cutting edge, quality website. The site is powered by a custom content management system that the internal staff uses to manage current inventory, unit and model details (text information, photos, etc.).
The new Lunati website handles all product, news, specials, and orders administration through a secure content/order management system built custom to their specific needs.
