We’ll savor these summer awards in a bed of summer savory. The sweet, sweet smell of victory. In case it’s not clear, the GDUSA American Web Design Awards issue (featuring our two awards!) is now out on stands. Go grab/order yours!
Anda Creative is pleased to announce our second 2016 GD USA Web Design Award for our very own backfortycreative.com! Back Forty’s new site was launched last September as a part of the rebranding we did for our sister company, which focuses on design and development for sustainable brands and businesses.
Anda Creative is happy to announce our GD USA Web Design Award for mbtrunning.com! We teamed up with global shoe brand MBT® for the website design and website development of MBT’s new line of running shoes and compression apparel. The website launched in conjunction with the Spring/Summer rollout.
New Jersey-based Plast-O-Matic is a performance leader in the development of plastic valves and controls, providing a complete line of standard and custom designed solutions. We worked with Plast-O-Matic to design and develop their new website, implementing a selector that the customer can use to find their specific part number among the thousands of products featured on the site. You can read more about the project here and visit the live site plastomatic.com to see the selector in action.
Anda Creative recently teamed up with global shoe brand MBT® to design and develop the website for MBT’s new line of running shoes and compression apparel. The site launched this month, in conjunction with their Spring/Summer rollout. The site currently features 40 styles of running shoes which will be updated regularly. We built the content management system in such a way that allows MBT to quickly and easily add new products to the site as they become available.

We are proud to announce Back Forty Creative has been replanted in a newly launched website and is ready to flourish (with a little help from some tail-wagging goats, jumping fish, and buzzing bees). Back Forty is Anda’s sister business dedicated to providing responsible design and branding solutions to good farming, good food, and good lifestyle businesses.
St. Louis-based financial planning company B.E.S.T. Wealth Management recently hired Anda Creative to help them rebrand.
Client consultation, brand assessment, and market research determined that the client’s biggest struggle was to appeal to the three very different target markets they represent: Individuals, Families, and Small Business Owners. The client also wanted to find a way to appeal to the younger, more tech-savvy segments in each of these markets.
After establishing a brand position and strategy, we began development on a new logo. In order to represent the three markets, we gave each their own color scheme. A color from each scheme was brought into the logo to compliment dark blue, which was used as the primary color for B.E.S.T.
These colors were carried throughout website, making each of the three markets easily definable. The user simply follows their market from the home page to enter a site within the site that caters to their specific needs. The site is a custom developed theme on a WordPress CMS, fully responsive for mobile and tablet, and just so happened to win an award for Best Website Design.
In addition to the brand position, logo, and website, we worked with B.E.S.T. to develop and design a direct mail campaign targeted to the small business owner market.
