Moreno Cardenas Lands a New Online Presence

Moreno Cardenas Lands a New Online Presence

Moreno Cardenas Inc. are leaders in project delivery and performance. Since 1990 they have consistently delivered a multitude of services to companies and organizations both large and small. Moreno Cardenas is a planning, engineering, and project management firm that knows their clients look to them to serve as extensions of their staff and to help them develop and manage their construction programs and projects.

Moreno Cardenas came to Stanton Street to redesign their website because they know that we pride ourselves on developing websites that are unique and designed to reflect the character of our clients. We used a color palette that suited their branding as well as their projects. Stanton Street wanted Moreno Cardenas to showcase their work so we gave their homepage the ability to scroll through images and details to feature some of their completed projects.

“We took a very direct approach and put the emphasis on their projects, bringing what they’ve done to the center of the site”, explained our Director of Design and Production, Tony Casas.

Stanton Street chose to highlight their accomplishments by using call out buttons that lead potential clients toward their accolades and credentials. Potential clients are also able to view areas of expertise quickly so they can assess how Moreno Cardenas will fit into their business.  Making their clients current and potential feel comfortable was also very important to us so we wanted to make sure that we highlighted all their certifications. Their new design is streamlined and makes it easy for the user to find what they need quickly.

“The design contains tons of cool angles and trapezoid shapes, the challenge here was not using a ton of images to achieve this look. Instead we used CSS pseudo elements to create the perfect angles that look sharp and clean on all screen sizes. These elements along with some subtle transitions really brought the design to life”, explained Sara Acevedo our web developer who took on the challenge.

We also put lot of special attention on what the website looks like on tablets and mobile devices to get it working properly across the board. As always, all web development that happens at Stanton Street is responsive meaning that the site will adjust to the size of the screen you are viewing it in.

If you’re impressed with the final product that we created for Moreno Cardenas and would like to find out how Stanton Street can fit into your business give us a call at 915.351.8440.

Hunt in Good Company with Stanton Street

Hunt in Good Company with Stanton Street

hmcblogHunt Companies provides service members and their families with quality living that they deserve. Hunt Companies wanted their professionalism to translate through their online presence. Having over 30 properties with their own sets of assets could prove challenging. Luckily, it’s Stanton Street’s forte. We have the level of professionalism, organization and creativity that Hunt Companies looks for when redesigning a website.

Identifying the needs of the client is always the first step we take when developing a new website or revamping one. In the instance of Hunt Military Communities, we knew that users needed to be able to access documents, forms and other services from any mobile device or tablet. The sites also needed to contain content geared toward current and future residents.

To easily organize the properties, we created a “gateway” page that gives new and prospective residents the ability to filter and search for applicable locations. Upon opening the gateway page, users are greeted with colorful thumbnails that represent each community. The page is neatly organized by branch: Navy, Air Force, Army, Marines and Civilian. Properties can also be filtered by the user’s status.

When a desired location is selected, users are directed to the homepage that displays imagery of their community along with functions such as: wait list lookup, rental applications, maintenance requests, rental payments, and “Find Your Home.” A site search is also readily available to get the user to a topic quickly.

The website is also host to resident newsletters, documents and forms, helpful links and frequently asked questions. The interactive community map provides residents with a quick overview of parks, basketball courts, and other recreational activities. Contact Us pages have been formatted to include phone numbers, addresses and management team information. New, current and prospective residents can easily reach out to management through general inquiries and leasing forms.

We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Hunt Military Communities and create optimal experiences for their service member’s past, present and future. If you are interested in redesigning your site or would like to develop new one, fill out our contact form. We would be happy to help you!

Listen Up Android Users

Listen Up Android Users

Mobile Notifications & MessagingAndroid users listen up! Some of your information might be in the hands of the wrong people. There is a new malware breach that has reached more than 1 Million Google accounts and is infecting 13,000 devices every day.

Gooligan is the name of this dangerous software that roots vulnerable Android devices and will steal email addresses and authentication tokens stored on them. Once the malware has your sensitive information it can then access accounts such as Gmail, Google Photos, Google Docs, Google Play, Google Drive and G Suite. If Gooligan is successful at gaining access it has full control of the device and the ability to send commands to your device remotely. Any devices running an older version of the Android operating system, such as Android 4.x (Jelly Bean, Kit Kat) and 5.x (Lollipop) are the most at risk. The malware attack was uncovered by Check Point Software Technologies and they have published a neat tool to make it easy to find out if your Android device is infected. If after you run a check on your device and you find out that it has been hacked, Google’s director of Android security has recommended you run a clean installation of the operating system on your device. Attempting to install a clean version of your software is called, “Flashing” completing this process is complicated. Google recommends turning off your device and go to a certified technician in your area to help you flash the device.

INBOUND 2016: Tech Nerd Paradise

INBOUND 2016: Tech Nerd Paradise

  • Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, larger than my city block.

It’s been a whirlwind of a week in Boston and I’ve returned to Stanton Street with sore feet, a bag full of tchotchkes and many wicked cool ideas. The INBOUND 2016 conference had over 19K in attendance soaking up inspirational talks, educational breakout sessions, and opportunities to network with like-minded individuals from around the world.

My personal schedule included sessions on web design, sales & marketing, legal contracts, social media and most importantly… lunch. No joke peeps, my schedule was jam packed but I loved every minute of it.

Many of the underlying themes focused on the evolution of content consumption and how we are living in “Mark Zuckerberg’s World.” Attitudes toward social media have shifted and segmented making it harder to reach our target audiences. We must learn how to add value to the experience instead of extracting from it.

Topics ranged from marketing to consumers within a social media structure to reforming your communication through personalization. Website sessions included insights on providing a seamless journey for your users focusing on testing, data, and collaboration with clients.

Attitudes towards how we sell our products have also changed. People no longer want the hard sell or the cold call. They want quality, dependability, and knowledge. In addition, they want a “test drive” and the ability to customize or control their journey.

We were also given sets of tools to help us in our prospective businesses, many of which I’m hoping we can roll out to the El Paso market. I’m very excited to see the great things we can accomplish and I’m hoping you’ll come on this voyage with us.

Would you like to pick my brain? Know more about all of the goodies? Give me a call, we’ll do lunch.

Meeting the Online Needs of Growing Companies

Meeting the Online Needs of Growing Companies

Hunt Companies Responsive Website

We have several clients that have been with us for a number of years and we’ve seen them grow from small corporations into worldwide conglomerates. Because of this, their online needs change requiring either new functionalities or a brand new design altogether. Hunt Companies is definitely one of those clients and thankfully, we’ve been able to answer the call every time.

The first step of their website redesign was re-identifying their goals and target audiences. Their current business structure more suitably resembles a holding company with subsidiaries versus the community development company from years ago. Targets are now more heavily shifted to Investors, Job Seekers then to Vendors and Employees.

Upon loading the site, users are immediately greeted by large, engaging photos of various business sectors that highlight the breadth and depth of the company. Intertwined within are images and statements of company representatives exhibiting the talent and diversity of its people. These images rotate upon page refresh capturing a user’s interest whether they’re viewing the site on a desktop, tablet or mobile device.

The main navigation was modified to feature leadership, information on core competencies and employment opportunities – all major components for a flourishing company. The Leadership section features principal contacts along with their bios and headshots. What We Do gives users insight into the business sectors and divisions such as: Real Estate Investments, Military Communities, Public Infrastructure and much more. Those looking for a career with Hunt can easily register, view and apply for jobs directly on the website.

Secondary navigation items such as contact information, vendor/employee portals and social media links are neatly packaged in the footer. Online forms capture essential information and route to the appropriate parties. A search bar at the very top of the site makes all content readily available for those seeking a specific skill set or individual.

We’re proud to be given the opportunity to partner with dynamic companies such as Hunt and can only hope that their business continues to thrive.

Are you looking for a web design company that will grow with your needs? Fill out our contact form or give us a call at (915) 351-8440 and see what we can do for you!

Stanton Street Finds One Smart Noodle

Stanton Street Finds One Smart Noodle

Sara started her journey with Stanton Street by following her heart and the yellow brick road. She threw stereotypes out the window as a little girl when she decided that she wanted to code her life away and make websites her passion. She didn’t let her love for pasta or frequent trips to Johnny Carinos get in the way when she was working toward her degree in Computer Science from the University of Texas at El Paso.

Before Sara joined our team of top notch performers she was hanging out with Lockheed Martin and Cimarron Software Services whom at the time were working under a NASA contract! Needless to say we cheered hip hip array when we found each other. Sara isn’t just about the behind the scenes of web site making she also enjoys typography, and kicking butt doing DIY Projects.

Sara isn’t a regular web developer, she’s a cool developer, and loves tackling challenges with a belly full of carbs and a face full of contour. Shopping, makeup and user interface design are on her list of things she loves. In her spare time you can catch her hanging with her 3 nieces and nephew, watching YouTube, eating spicy food, and watching The Wizard of Oz. Don’t be fooled by skills that she’s got she’s still Sara from the block.
