Motor Mart Garage wins a Gold W3 Website Design Award
The two most important things the Motor Mart Garage needs to convey are where it is, and what the rates are. This site achieves that with prominent buttons and a very clean navigation system. Custom photography helped make this historic building in downtown Boston look clean, safe, and brightly lit. The website redesign is also fully responsive — with optimized views for tablets and mobile devices. Extra effort went into custom icon designs and floor plan illustrations.
Motor Mart is proud of it’s revolutionary in 1927 Double Threaded Helix ramp design, still rarely employed in large urban garages due to space constraints. Yet at the Motor Mart it allows patrons to rise two vertical levels while circling the garage only once, and combined with our Clearway Path travel lanes (no ramp parking), speeds vehicles directly to the nearest available space. Upon exiting, the Helix brings cars to either side of Park Square (Stuart St or Columbus Ave), wherever traffic is least. Check out the website redesign here.
Cytonome wins a Silver W3 Website Design Award
This fully-responsive website design for Cytonome highlights the client’s key products and application areas. The site loads extremely fast by using the latest CSS graphic and animation capabilities. Custom illustrations help explain the technology while staying on-brand.
Cytonome is a Boston-based life sciences company in that brings the power of simplified cell sorting to the core lab and to your lab. They make application-specific, cell purification tools, small enough to sit on your desktop and powerful enough to find the rarest of cells.
