Cultigraphic® strikes again: Logo Design receives international recognition!

We are so excited to announce that one of our Logo Designs has been selected to be featured in the 3rd Edition of LogoLounge Master Library series, titled Shapes & Symbols. The release date for the book is July 2011. Pre-order the book here: http://www.amazon.com/LogoLounge-Master-Library-Shapes-Symbols/dp/1592536905/ref=sr_1_11?s=gateway&ie=UTF8&qid=1285354911&sr=8-11

Surgery, Specialists & Spider Veins, Oh my!

We are so excited to announce the launch of a new website for Coastal Surgical Vascular and Vein Specialists! Last summer, we completed the branding of Coastal Surgical Vascular and Vein Specialists, as well as the Lowcountry Vein and Medical Spa, both located in the West Ashley area of Charleston, South Carolina. The launch of this website is an important development for this business, as it will enable patients to gather information about the Centers’ staff and procedures before appointments or when they may have questions. Patients will also be able to download important forms and submit contact information to schedule appointments.

The initial phase of design for the site began with five website layout options, and then after a few revisions, we chose the design you see now. Accessibility, simple navigation and legible script were some of the key elements to consider when designing this site. We also wanted patients to feel a sense of ease and relaxation as they browsed the site. Zafari, Inc. partnered with us and provided stellar back-end programming and Search Engine Optimization for the website as well.

Cultigraphic enjoys designing for all different kinds of companies and genres; but we have certainly recognized a small niche in medical advertising, promotion and design for the past few years with clients such as Mississippi Breast Center, the Susan G. Komen Lowcountry and Central Mississippi Affiliates, the Lowcountry Pregnancy Center, and Coastal Surgical to name a few.

Site Launch for Lowcountry Pregnancy Center

We are so excited to launch a freshly designed website for Lowcountry Pregnancy Center! If you haven’t read earlier posts, Lowcountry Pregnancy Center is a place for women to receive emotional, medical, informational and spiritual support in the event of a surprise pregnancy. Just a few of the services offered at LPC include free pregnancy tests, free limited ulstrasounds, and free counseling. The center also provides reading classes, parenting classes and a fatherhood program.

LPC’s main goals for their site were to have a place where women and men facing pregnancy related issues could go to for information and help – with no pressure or guilt. They wanted the site to be approachable, helpful and informative – as well as encouraging to those who find themselves in a difficult situation relating to unwanted or accidental pregnancies.

We used the bright, bold colors consistent with their branding, and a simple layout for easy navigation through their site. We included commercials, contact information and maps, links to their facebook page, and inspirational quotes from clients and others at the top of each page.

Check out their site here: http://lowcountrypregnancycenter.com/

Charleston Your Home – Real Estate Redefined

Check out some of the work we did for Charleston Your Home, a boutique real estate agency specializing in the Charleston, SC real estate market. They wanted a modern, fresh look, so we designed a logo and business card for their agency. Some of the work is purely conceptual (the van), but have fun looking at it!
