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.

Snap Out of It

Snap Out of It

snapRecently I blogged about the distribution of fake news and how Facebook and Google are making it harder for people to peddle misinformation. While certain social media platforms were in the hot seat, Snap (formerly Snapchat) remained out of the spotlight. Snap is Facebook’s biggest competitor, so how did a social media platform with 150 million daily users manages to sidestep the issue?

Snap is a growing source of breaking news for users but there are a handful of reasons why the sometimes controversial social network doesn’t get brought up over debates about fake news. Snapchat is user-generated content that appears over a short period then poof it disappears. There have been many changes to Snapchat over the last few years they released filters, geo filters, and a news section to the app. The news that has been integrated is contained in a separate action they call Discover. The process that publishers go through to get content published is much more extensive, and Snapchat does a great job of vetting potential partners. The way that Snapchat operates is also very different than most platforms. Snap thrives on authenticity, not collecting likes and shares. Snapchat profiles do not display a follower count or even let users know how many followers they have. The app also doesn’t have any links for users to share so it makes it harder for snaps to go viral. Another way that Snap has helped stop the promotion of fake news stories is through a Live Story. This is a mashup of photos and videos of an event that work as a firsthand account and makes it difficult to alter this content. Snapchat is a very unique and somewhat experimental source of information, that is tightly managed. Whether that’s good or bad only time will tell. One thing that is for certain is practicing responsible sharing. Friends don’t let friends spread rumors.
