Like many growing companies, Atlas Biologicals, Inc. in Fort Collins, CO, had a solo-entrepreneur build them a website. A very typical experience: good tech, ok design, and a jack-of-all-trades. Atlas outgrew this home developer and spent the next few years going through two big full-service shops. They chose one with great reviews, but never fully got the tech they needed, specifically to be able to process purchases on the site. Suddenly, the shop disappeared, leaving Atlas out to dry. So, they picked a new company close to home.
Loveland’s Lo Co Artisan Coffee Shop was home to one of Uwe Schuller’s biergarten table long enough to make Copper Leaf Creative’s leader take notice. After a year of finding this particular spot comfortable and conducive to work outside the office, serendipity brought Uwe and Gordon together. Uwe—not one to be afraid of being direct—approached Gordon and asked how liked the table and his seat. Uwe reached out, poking Gordon right above his tailbone to demonstrate how the design of the table was such that the user could sit for hours without discomfort in well, the rear.
The Lofts at Jefferson in Loveland, CO became one of the first ever panelized, light gauge steel residential buildings in the country. Builder Daryl Sigler collaborated with Prescient, Inc. of Denver to develop a new way to construct the building. They used computers and automated design techniques to construct the building pieces, which would then be assembled onsite with almost zero construction waste. Such use of technology and attention to environmental sensitivity required a selling presence that did the same—a reflection of the Lofts design needed to come up in their web presence.
The Montclaire, NJ Wellmont Theater has been around the block, opening originally in 1922 as a live entertainment venue that quickly converted to a movie house in 1929. In 2008 the then owners invested $3 million dollars to bring it back to its’ original function where it has since boasted 40-50 shows annually. New management took over in ’15 and began further renovations. New ownership established a relationship with Copper Leaf Creative to ensure the Wellmont’s digital footprint matched the work going on behind the scenes.
Pierre Ratte and Maureen Bakis came to us with an idea: how can we create a community where personal stories about the benefits of yoga can be shared to increase well-being for the planet?
The idea was to create a forum that story-tellers could easily access and submit their own personal experiences for the greater community’s consumption.
USA Escape Rooms was developed by Copper Leaf Creative after working with several Escape Rooms across the country. Being avid travelers and somewhat professional gum-shoes, we wanted to know where we could find other Escape Rooms. Selfishly, we built ourselves a directory.
Presto Fresco Pizza is a fresh wood-fried pizza food truck concept coming to market in the greater Seattle area. Their mission is “to replace less-healthy fast-food, fat-bombs one delicious morsel at a time.” At this stage in their development, they needed a simple, clean, and inspiring website to share their passion, ideas, and attract potential investors.
The Heil Sound team came to us with a specific need: They were launching a new Podcast and needed to add a “Podcasts Page” to their website. They knew WordPress was the best option for blog-powered content like this, but their site was built on Joomla. Together we decided to create a separate WordPress-powered website for the podcast.
The Paramount and Copper Leaf’s growth took a parallel course after the initial launch of the site. As we talked about in our announcement of the first version of the site: “the next step was to develop a robust website including custom show management and calendaring system to sell tickets to upwards of 150 shows each year appealing to diverse audiences.”
In 2013 Gordon and the team sat down and completely re-developed the backbone of the website–all the while maintaining an active site to continue the theater’s success.
Early in 2010 the defunct, iconic IMAC theater in downtown Huntington, Long Island was purchased by new owners with lofty goals of redevelopment. Given the delicacy of reinvigorating a local landmark, the new theater had to create a unique local brand – not just roll out a corporate big box approach.
