Percy Ellis Holdings needed their website to serve their clients as well as potential investors. Requiring the site to function as a sales and lead generation tool for potential investors, the site also needed to incorporate a reference tool for current investors.
Our first introduction into the Percy Ellis brand was all business: logo, letterhead and business cards. We were inspired by this 2-man operation conducting business old school and jumped at the chance to help them grow their online presence.
We devised a plan to alleviate some of the pressures of sales, lead generation, culturing leads and information supply to allow them to focus on billable hours and do what they did best: property development.
The initial step consisted of creating a simple, yet effective website with minimal teaser information, an integrated contact form to capture leads and an investor’s login portal to access reporting on specific investment properties. This site was initially launched without a portfolio component, but Percy Ellis’ rapid growth (40 properties in its first 2 years of operation!) needed to be seen by the masses and a portfolio section was later added.
Since the site’s launch in 2016, we’ve completed signage designs as large as 10’ x 12’ viewable on Percy Ellis’ many Toronto properties.
Georgina Health Centre
With a second location opening around the corner, Georgina Health Centre required a website redesign to allow for prompt and efficient updates for all of its patients.
User Workflow Testing
Custom Schedule and Wait Time Update Tool
With a second location opening, Georgina Health Centre approached us to modify their existing website. Their site wasn’t set up to organize information across 2 locations offering different services and they expressed concern over their patient’s potential confusion.
Without overhauling the complete website, we added design components to create a fresh update and to keep Georgina Health Centre on-trend. We also implemented a user workflow through specific locations to avoid confusion as well as re-organized the content based on the location’s capabilities.
Accara IT Solutions came to us with a simple plan: to gain more control over their site.
We noticed this company was doing more than servicing local businesses through effective use of information technology. One of Accara IT Solutions’ newsworthy projects was the upgrade the Parliament Hill Webcam from analog to digital technology and we felt their incredible work needed to be showcased.
By giving them a content management system and putting their work front and centre, Accara IT Solutions was able to use their site in a way that categorized their expertise.
Food Sharing Project
Updating a website while staying true to its origins.
Part of room 146’s mission is to give back to our community as often as we can. And while this is of the utmost importance to us, we took our time selecting our first non-profit. The more we learnt about the Food Sharing Project, the more we realized we needed to be a part of what they were about.
The Food Sharing Project partners with the community (individuals and businesses) to provide breakfast, lunch and/or snacks to children in the Limestone District School Board and the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board and were able to feed over 13,000 children in 2015.
Their site was updated to reflect a more modern aesthetic while staying true to their roots and a content management system was implemented to allow them to post at will.
Podium Bass Fishing
To create a one-stop site for Bass Fishing tournaments.
When a friend approached us to partner up on an idea for a fishing tournament website, we jumped at the opportunity to execute this groundbreaking project.
New to us was the knowledge that no adequate online location was available for bass fishing tournaments. This was an opportunity to create a site that was more than just a calendar! Podium Bass Fishing was created to provide a sense of community for sport fishing professionals across North America. With a user forum, tournament information, tourism promoted through vendors and charters and a focus on the conservation and preservation of bass fishing, this site a first of its kind.
To generate revenue, we implemented a crowdsourcing e-commerce system that allows companies to sponsor online tournament listings per geographic area.
Providing front end development work on a pre-designed website and providing it all on budget while working within a strict timeline.
While preparing the launch of the live web app which assists in the connection of business professionals, Communo required a quick turn around on the front end development component of this project to allow extra time for database systems integration, QA and on boarding of Communo members.
Site designs were completed prior to joining this project and we were tasked with building a Wordpress site while collaborating with the site and database’s host in preparation for a seamless integration.

Architect, design and develop a site capable of updating time sensitive information with membership capabilities.
UX strategy & wireframes
The CIOGA homepage needed to capture the essence and mission of it’s brand and to showcase something newsworthy and interesting while being a valuable business resource.
The site required an updated Wordpress content management system to allow the CIOGA to have full publishing control over major news stories, career and tender availability. We also created a paid membership platform with integrated user restrictions.
Content Heavy site needed a redesign to meet current web trends.
Heavy Equipment Solutions
We aren’t going to beat around the bush here. Everything was designed and completed by the time we were pulled into the project. We swooped in to further develop the site into a content management system because we’re cool like that.
Complying with new Ontario regulation to display a food’s calorie count on menu boards.
Pita Pit used the new regulation as an opportunity to redesign its menu boards to not only be compliant, but to allow a more user friendly approach to assist its customers with their ordering process.
With re-engineered menu boards, Pita Pit hopes to better convey to its customers the near limitless possibilities to personalize their meals while also encouraging them to explore and create additional options.
This project came to us through Cult; a fellow Communo member.
