Client: Mike Anthony for State Superintendent of Education
Project: Logo design
Description: Mike Anthony is a South Carolina State Represenative making his first run for statwide office. We created a gold & black version to match the candidate's preferred color scheme for use on signs and bumper stickers as well as a version with a white background that works better on letterhead and other printed materials.
Client: Marlon Kimpson, Candidate for State Senate in South Carolina's 42nd District
Project: Website design and launch, social media management and consulting.
Description: Harbor Light Media designed the website for Kimpson's successful bid for the state senate. Kimpson was a first-time candidate and we literally started from scratch creating his online presence via the website as well as on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. In addition to managing the website and social media we also set up and managed online donations.
Client: Martin Skelly for Congress
Project: Logo design
Description: Martin Skelly is running for Congress in a crowded primary field that includes over a dozen contenders between Republicans and Democrats. The district is going to be swamped in political advertising and signs by the time the primary arrives, so it is vitally important to have a memorable brand to identify his campaign and set him apart from the field. Two versions were created to adapt the logo to different uses -- the white background primarily for stationery purposes (business cards, letterhead, etc) and the blue background for bumper stickers and signage.
Client: McIntosh Consulting
Project: Website/logo design and launch.
Description: Harbor Light Media designed a new website and identity package for frequent partner and collaborator McIntosh Consulting. McIntosh needed an updated web presences to highlight their political victories as well as commercial clients.
Client: Dixie Map Company, an in-house project of Harbor Light Media
Project: Logo design
Description: In launching our new venture, we wanted to invoke the spirit of cartography along with the South-centric nature of our products, so we incorporated the iconic compass rose as the "x" in dixie and inverted it so that south is at the top instead north.
Project: Complete website redesign and videos
Description: In addition to the logo we designed, the client needed a new and more dynamic website to showcase their services and help attract new clients. The site was set up on a database-driven CMS to allow the site to be more easily updated as needed. HLM also filmed a series of web videos to help walk clients through some of what they need to know before their appointment.
Project: Complete top-down redesign of their website
Description: The client had a website that was holding them back and needed something that conveyed the hi-tech professionalism that embodies what they sell and the service they provide.
Client: theDiscust is an in-house project.
Project: Celebrate the two-year anniversary of theDiscust with a complete makeover.
Description: theDiscust has been very successful as a design showcase, a creative outlet, and as a satirical blog covering South Carolina politics. Having just turned two-years-old, however, the look was starting to show some wear so it was time for an overhaul. We kept WordPress as the platform, found a new template, and customized it to our needs. The new version has a more attractive interface and new features for users.
Welcome to the third incarnation of Harbor Light Media's website.
If you've visited us before, the first thing you'll notice is a completely new and brighter color scheme, designed to be more inviting and easier on the eyes. But beyond the new aesthetics, we've moved the site to a new back-end database system that gives us much more flexibility in design and content.
We've always used our home page as a live testing ground for different technologies, allowing us to work out the bugs before implementing them on customer sites. This site is now running on Drupal, an open-source, secure, database-driven content management system -- this is the same back-end we've used to deploy in most of our most recent high-end websites.
