Web

Whether you’re launching a new web site for your small or corporate bushiness or freshening up an existing one, certain features are must-haves.

You might be able to do without expensive e-commerce and multi-media features, but your web site should make real-world business sense.

It should absolutely compel visitors to return. Don’t do this with gimmicks. Do it with basic marketing principles.

Know your target market. Know what you want to accomplish when visitors come to your site; and set goals for your site’s performance.  Can a tip for journalism 101 and address these basics with the five “W’s”?

Environmental

We were commissioned to design the Welcome, way finding, kiosk signage for the town of Friday Harbor.  This greets visitors right as they get off the ferry. We selected colors that are part of the approved colors for historic use as well as typefaces that were of a historic nature but with a modern feel.

Experience

Tif & Gif Creative LLC is run by husband and wife duo, Chris Minney and Melonie Walter and comrade, Jason Morrison. They have combined experience of over 30 years working in online digital media, marketing, graphic design and print sectors.

Melonie studied at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, and Chris sharpened his chops at the University of Colorado.

Aesthetic

Their aesthetic could be described as Postmodern Retro and they find inspiration in the past, present and future. When not designing for clients they can be found in their studio/barn listening to their large vinyl collection, painting, pulling prints, making music and any other creative endeavor that might catch their fancy.

Go Local & Give Back

Tif & Gif Creative LLC believes in the importance of supporting your local business and non-profit community. That’s why Chris was a board director for the San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau for several years and served as the President of the board for Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehab. Melonie has served on the Board of The Westcott Bay Institute and is past president of The San Juan Island Chamber of Commerce.
