SILO Carbondale

SERVICES:
- BRAND DESIGN
- PHOTOGRAPHY
- WEBSITE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT


We collaborated with local farm-to-table restaurant SILO to create a clean brand design that would focus on the integrity of the food and the authentic atmosphere this local hot spot proudly provides.

SILO was a newer restaurant, ready for an online presence that really represented what they were about, so this process began with the heart of it all, chef Lacy's food. We spent a day working together to photograph and document the love and detail that goes into each and every dish served. 

With this photography, we moved on to create a simplistic, clean website that allows the food and brand to speak for itself, with pops of the SILO teal throughout. The end result was a design that accomplished the goal of capturing the integrity and authenticity that SILO dishes up.

Corvidae Collective knocked it out of the park for our GlenX Success Summit event. Their creative tenacity and professionalism in everything they did for us was remarkable. They developed and promoted our brand from start to finish with consistent precision, an exceptional website and brand design, extensive PR efforts, and with the event itself. They were integral to our success and I highly recommend working with this team.
— Altai Chuluun, GlenX President

GlenX, a new local nonprofit organization, kicked off its inaugural Success Summit event in 2015, offering a unique local gathering meant to unleash new ideas, inspire, and ignite the fire in the local community. Hosted by the Roaring Fork Young professionals, they approached us for some last minute help to brand, promote, and help produce the event for its big kickoff.

Our team jumped right in to complete this project within a very short timeline. We created a refreshed brand identity, designed and developed an interactive event website, executed an integrated marketing campaign using traditional and digital media channels, managed a local press outreach campaign, and were hands-on with event production and day-of event coordination. 

Targeting a young professional based audience, we incorporated a bright, energetic color palette with big, bold call to actions meant to promote the event while also providing inspiration for viewers to be their best selves, the main call-to-action coming out of this year's event. 

In collaboration with the YP's and local community, we put together an effective and exciting brand campaign. The results of this campaign brought a great turnout to the event itself, saw local press coverage, a jump in social media interaction, and most importantly set the organization up for an even bigger and better event for coming years.

Fat Shack approached us looking for a new website that would properly represent the growth of their business since they initially got their start in 2010. Going from one restaurant location to six (along with a feature on the Travel Channel), they wanted a website that would display a more polished, professional brand image that would still reach their more laid-back target audience at key areas of interest - social, sales and business.

To accomplish the goals of this project, we integrated simple yet bold graphics with a clear call-to-action throughout the site. We organized the flow of the website with interactive elements to support the user’s navigation in specific directions (social, sales, and business). Additionally, we created a mobile version of the website for optimal user experience across any viewing device, and implemented foundational SEO metadata and heading tags to ensure preparation for future search engine optimization efforts.

In collaboration with the guys at Fat Shack, we successfully launched their brand new website with an intuitive, user-friendly interface that leads users to socially interact with recent company news, swiftly order delicious late night food, and request information to join the Fat Shack franchise team.  This newly refreshed online presence has elevated the Fat Shack brand to best represent its company culture and customer experience as the business continues to see rapid growth.

Andrea came to us ready to take her profession as a notable photographer to the next level. She wanted a simple logo design as well as a professional, functional website. Her goals were to showcase her new work, bring attention to her published work, and to brand herself as a prominent lifestyle and travel photographer while maintaining her very real and unique perspective.

Through an enjoyable and creative collaboration, along with Andrea’s stunning photos inspiring the project, we launched a new website effectively elevating the Andrea Coan Photography brand.

The simple, editorial design of the website puts Andrea’s images in the spotlight. It allows her work to speak for itself, representing the talent behind the lens. The pops of color and cool tones throughout guide viewers through each page, with strategic content development keeping things simple and straightforward.

 

Working with Corvidae Collective was such a pleasant and inspiring experience. From the start I felt like I was in good hands. Colleen took this project that had felt so daunting to me and broke it down into approachable sections and steps. Each step was discussed and approved before we moved on to the next point of focus, making me feel like I was a part of my project and kept me excited instead of stressed. She allowed me to wrap my head around my vision and then she made that vision live!

Colleen also offered fantastic input and advice when I would get stuck or need an outside perspective. She was always eager to help and tackle any issue we would run into. I am very happy with my end result and look forward to collaborating with Corvidae Collective on many more creative projects!

After taking over ownership and management of Aspen, CO event planning business DL Event Planning, our client came to us to refresh the name and branding of the company for a fresh start, and to update the company’s website with these changes.

Through in-depth brand discovery, collaboration, research, and testing, our team created an exciting, modern and simple new brand identity that would launch the business into it’s exciting next phase. Based on the namesake of the company’s core leadership, Burns & Madsen was created.

The clean, luxury-focused imagery and sound of this name are obviously appealing. The logo design is rich-looking, and represents the business itself as well as the areas served. With the request for the branding to have a variation showing vibrance and energy, a citrus color scheme was implemented for alt logos, while the black and gold variation stands as the primary branding.

The local Havoline Xpress Lube shop approached us to help them establish an online presence. Their goals were to better reach their current customers with important information, bring in a larger more consistent customer base, and stand out among the other Havoline shops nationwide. After in-depth local market research and understanding the corporate expectations we needed to adhere to, we moved forward with creating a customized website for the shop and implementing verified, accurate online listings.


Through content development and branded photography, the El Jebel Havoline Xpress Lube website came together quite nicely. The website is simple, straight forward, and achieves the business’s goal of having a digital presence to easily provide quick information to their local customer base - such as the shop’s services, location info, car care tips, and promotions. Our market research found a large hispanic customer base, so we were also sure to implement Spanish-speaking friendly content and a user-friendly translation widget on the full website if so chosen.

VERTEX

VERTEX

We were excited when the Aspen International Mountain Foundation (AIMF) approached us to help them develop a website and virtual community to support the efforts of their newest initiative, VERTEX. AIMF, in partnership with the Telluride Institute, has launched VERTEX to represent the United Nations Global Mountain Partnership in the North American, Central American, and Caribbean region. The main objective of VERTEX is to promote mountain sustainability by engaging mountain stakeholders to collaborate and share best practices.

Our team is passionate and involved in mountain sustainability and found this project to be right up our alley. With VERTEX’s objective in mind, we created an informative website focused on mountain sustainability resources, alongside an interactive community forum where information and conversation can be easily exchanged among mountain communities so there can be a greater effort for change.

With the central hub in place for these important conversations, VERTEX’s online community of mountain stakeholders will continue to grow, and we look forward to continuously supporting this initiative with digital content and marketing support to help create a global voice for mountain sustainability.


Aspen International Mountain Foundation (AIMF) was pleased to work with Corvidae Collective on the development of its new website - VERTEX. Since our objective was to create a community of mountain stakeholders we were most pleased at how the design (look and feel) and structure (forum functionality) turned out to support this objective. From the start it was an effective and collaborative approach. It was a pleasure working with Colleen and the Corvidae team. We truly appreciate their expertise and diligence from start to finish.

Wade Newsom

Wade Newsom

Services:

- website design & development


Wade Newsom is easily one of the more inspiring individuals you’ll come across, and we were honored to collaborate with him to expand the reach of his uplifting work. Together we created a website that would be his calling card, the hub for him to post his work and provide a simple, creative place of inspiration. In addition, his website needed to be functional and user friendly in promoting his workshops, speaking events, book sales, and more.

We created a website that captivates viewers through the obvious passion and purpose behind Wade’s work. Felt through the words on the page and a simple yet dramatic design, our goal was to get viewers to feel something as they navigate the site, enough so that they are encouraged to participate - whether it’s through becoming a follower of Wade’s work to signing up for a workshop to booking him for a performance. We paired this with user-friendly capabilities, making it easy to register and process payment for Wade’s workshops, purchase his book, Poetic Notions, and to easily keep up to date with his events and appearances.
 

Colleen and her team are clutch. I approached Corvidae Collective needing a website ASAP! I had just been asked to speak at a high profile event and the organizers needed some personal promotional material, including a website. I called Colleen and the very next day we were having coffee and talking design, content, etc. She asked the appropriate questions and she listened to what I had to say. That afternoon I received an email from her recapping our conversation along with a checklist of what she needed from me in order to proceed most efficiently (she made my job easy). Shortly thereafter, I received a link to the work in progress. I was able to watch and give her my feedback as the website was being created.

Colleen took the time to listen to my vision, she asked the appropriate questions and communicated clearly throughout the process. Colleen and her team are extremely talented and knowledgable, and as a result I got a beautiful, user-friendly website very quickly! I highly recommend Corvidae Collective! Thank you again Colleen!
