view case study

Challenges

Kruger were in need of a world-class website to help convey their story and the culture of the company: working within different industries and communities through sustainability efforts and renewable resources.

Solutions

CWA developed a modern and easy-to-navigate corporate website for Kruger, allowing them to properly provide information about the company as well as insights into the work they do and the sustainability-driven goals and culture that they adhere to. Additionally, we created a user-friendly mobile version of the site for an optimal on-the-go experience.

American Marketing & Publishing

AMP, an Illinois-based digital and traditional marketing & advertising company, contacted us here at Comrade to help design and developing a new, modernized website as well as rebrand and update the company’s imagery.

view case study

Challenges

AMP is unique in that their customer base consists of small and local businesses who use print and online mediums for advertising and marketing. It was important for the new website to be structured in a way that both AMP team members and their customers could navigate and easily identify the best solution for their business.

As a secondary but equally important feature, the site needed to help facilitate understanding for new employee prospects on the culture and and purpose of AMP.

Solutions

The new look produced for this brand new website was coupled by a very user-intuitive design, while keeping accessibility in mind. The information architecture of the site allows users to move into a carefully laid out sales funnel for maximized conversions.

The site serves as both the face of the company and as a marketing tool for their salespeople.

Marmot

Marmot is a US-based apparel company focusing on outdoor jackets and related goods. Born out of adventure and a desire to share that culture with others, Marmot has been developing unique jackets, tops, and related apparel for climbing, hiking, and general outdoor activities for over 30 years.

view case study

Challenges

Marmot required a world-class website that would help further distinguish their brand amongst competitors. Additionally, the design needed to be straightforward, modern, and help add depth to the brand’s voice and imagery without sacrificing ease-of-use.

Solutions

Comrade’s creative team was pleased to develop a truly dynamic and pleasing website for Marmot. We took the existing company’s guidelines and materials and refined them to deliver a website that would successfully convey the Marmot brand and culture. The site’s navigation is easy to use but provides the user with a unique and compelling experience throughout every stage of the shopping process. The end result was very well received by both the company and customers alike.

Precision Stone Design

As a strategic growth partner for Precision Stone Design (PSD), Comrade has helped uplift the brand image and increase demand for its products.

view case study

Challenges

The company needed a boost in sales. Before partnering with Comrade, Precision Stone Design had an outdated brand image and poor-performing web presence. Few consumers found the company’s website and, of those who found it, did not see PSD as the leader in countertop fabrication.

Solutions

New, modern branding, coupled with one of the best-in-class websites, matched with high-performance search engine optimization(SEO), content marketing, and PPC campaigns.

AARP Illinois

AARP is a US-based non-profit interest group whose purpose is to help empower the aging American population by means of advocating for social change through information, advocacy, service, and lobbying activities.

view case study

Challenges

AARP Illinois tasked Comrade in designing a website that would help them drive IL residents to engage elected representatives as means of holding them accountable for drafting a sensible state budget. With this, CWA would help AARP develop what would become known as the “Enough Is Enough” campaign. The goal was to create tools to enable residents to add their own stories and opinions on the crucial topic of state budgeting and its adverse effects on the elderly population.

Solutions

CWA created an easy-to-use website that lets users find appropriate information and get involved. Users can subscribe to a newsletter, browse through and submit stories, discover facts and statistics regarding the state of IL, and stay up-to-date on current news regarding the budgeting crisis. Finally, the website guides the user toward action and engagement, including sharing content through social media.

Granite Selection

view case study

Challenges

CS needed to improve profit margins and grow sales simultaneously.
As a discounter, the company had low profit margins. The company struggled with market perception, and demand for products was sluggish as most customers could not find their website in the very competitive field.

Solutions

Aggressive, high-performance search engine optimization (SEO), fine-tuned search engine marketing(PPC), content marketing, all paired up with a modern website and completely overhauled branding.

Levinson Law Group

Levinson Law Group is a Southern California-based firm specializing in personal injury cases that vary from client-to-client, with a particular scope of work focused on vehicular accidents.

view case study

Challenges

Their old site failed to position the firm as leaders within their industry. Important information was not properly communicated, their story was not properly told, and the content was not up-to-date. Additionally, they were relying heavily on paid ads to help them generate leads while failing to implement a proper SEO strategy to achieve sustained growth.

Solutions

The first step was to completely rebuild the site, clearly communicating the firms impressive track record and story. CWA added a video to reinforce the firm’s message and reputation. This was coupled with a streamlined layout for easy navigation and implementation of new content, all structured as sales funnel to help display information and generate leads.

The next step was to optimize onsite SEO as well as strategize offsite activities to help strengthen the firm’s local presence in Southern CA. This new approach allowed the firm to grow their audience beyond their local markets and help garner them a reputation throughout Southern California. Through effective paid advertising strategies, CWA has successfully helped Levinson Law Group decrease the amount spent on ads while increasing the amount of viable leads generated from these campaigns.

Steps 2 Walk

With a noble cause and real-life solutions, this Not for Profit organization raises money, runs programs internationally that train surgeons and spurs local involvement. Over the past 20 years, the 150 orthopedic surgeons and volunteers have aided thousands of children and adults who suffer with untreated foot and ankle deformities and injuries.

view case study

Challenges

With a visually outdated, non-mobile-friendly website, the organization’s scope of operations was unclear. The site was not marketed in any way to substantially increase awareness, participation and donations. Steps2Walk’s online presence was an afterthought, rather than a combination of powerful tools that could widen and deepen the organization’s success 24/7/365.

Solutions

Comrade dramatically improved the messaging by embedding real-world case studies (text and photos) that created stronger credibility. We introduced three tiers of premium donor levels to encourage individuals to donate to the cause. Additionally, the website is helping to strengthen the growing worldwide network of surgeons, who, in earlier years, volunteered their services and went back to their respective practices, without much ongoing interaction. Finally the new website invites sponsors and international partners (individuals and corporations alike) to join – and help – the mission.

Belgravia Group

Belgravia Group is a premier real estate company from Chicago, with a legacy spanning over 70 years and having developed well over 2,000 properties within that time. Belgravia consulted with CWA on creating a modern, attractive website to properly showcase the company’s culture and history. After multiple creative brainstorming sessions, CWA was able to develop the blueprint for what would become a stunning site to help represent Belgravia.

view case study

Challenges

Belgravia’s prior website was stagnant and required a revamp that would give them a cutting-edge and modernized look to match their niche of real estate: high-end properties in some of the most popular neighborhoods of Chicago.

Solutions

The approach applied was both minimalist and interactive: the website has a clean-cut layout with easy navigation. CWA also consulted Belgravia in creating unique, professional content to add to the site, helping to strengthen the company’s online reputation. The visual content consists of beautiful professional photography that showcases the properties Belgravia Group manage.

Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors

Blueprint is a Chicago-based advisory firm that specializes in senior housing and healthcare real estate, offering unique exit strategies, solutions, and consulting for both investors and operators. Blueprint enlisted Comrade Web Agency to revamp their website, create a client portal for investors and operators, and to develop a mobile app for their services.

view case study

Challenges

Due to the high amounts of information that is typically exchanged between BP and their clientbase, the requested portal needed to be capable of both holding said information and allowing exchange between multiple parties. Their complex business model also had to be taken into account, as there are several variables in the kinds of information exchanged and how the portal should function for each user.

Solutions

We developed a brand new site for Blueprint, bringing their branding and voice up to date with user-friendly navigation and professional stylings. This included creating a design and branding library for future use.

As for the client portal, we were able to create a visible portfolio with all assets in a “data room”: a place within the portal where Blueprint can exchange files, messages, and other related content with their clients (and vice versa).

From the admin side, users are able to update and manage portfolios and related assets. Additionally, they are given a variety of dashboards for their different metrics, including finances.

The mobile app was developed for usage on both iOS and Android platforms, serving as an on-the-go version of their site.
