Today Team Armadillo is incredibly excited to announce the launch of our very first iOS App – The People Power App from the The International Center For Non-Violent Conflict.
Earlier this year, we were approached by members of The International Center of Non-violent Conflict to help create a unique iPhone app that would act as an aggregate for their various information outlets. The team wanted a customized app that would not only allow users to share the organizations incredible amount of unique data, but also a tool that would allow users to watch videos, download their paper Civil Resistance: A First Look, connect on social media networks and subscribe the latest news from the organization. The app also had to feature the upcoming redesign of the organization and their new branding scheme.
So we hand crafted an iOS app that would meet all of their goals. The People Power App is a unique tool that incorporates all the organization’s online identities in one single program to allow users to connect with the centre on the go. Users can see the latest news digest information, subscribe to the organization’s newsletter and learn about various non-violent conflicts across the world. Users can then share all elements of the app with friends and family to raise awareness of these crucial events and issues. The app also works across a wide spectrum of iPhone products including iPod Touch 3rd & 4th Generation platforms and of course for the iPhone 4, 4S and iPhone 5.
We are incredibly honored and excited to be apart of this project. Not only because this our first major foray into the iOS App development world, after years of sitting on the sidelines, but because this is a cause and organization that we admire. It has been an absolute pleasure working with ICNC and we look forward to continue to develop the app and improve their online presence.
The People Power App is now available to download. Please feel free to download and share your feed back with us.
Early last week, Team Armadillo was more than happy to launch the official campaign web site for our good friend Troy Wason.
Troy is seeking the Calgary Vice President position for the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta. As a great friend of the company, we were more than willing to help his campaign team create a unique web site that would reflect Troy’s progressive and forward thinking philosophy. Using a combination of web fonts and the campaign’s minimalistic branding, we set about to create a site that would provide a clear and direct message to potential voters. As usual, this WordPress powered web site also showcases the campaign’s social media elements, while also allowing the campaign team to keep potential supports abreast of the latest events through the intuitive Content Management System.
We here at Armadillo Studios want to wish Troy all the best on the campaign trail and are excited to add TroyWason.ca to our growing portfolio of political campaign web sites.
About a week ago, Team Armadillo Studios was approached by Darren Harmon and our friends at WMS Communications to help with a new project. Darren was looking for a fresh new look for his band’s web site (http://harmonband.com) to coincide with a headlining gig at a local Calgary-based charity. So, armed with a tight timeline and a great new client, the team at Armadillo Studios set about revamping the band’s main site in time for the big show.
Team Armadillo is once again excited to announce the launch of yet another great web site. This time we’ve collaborated with our new friends – Illinois Based Jitterbug Events. Run by the amazingly energetic and versatile Terri Musser, Jitterbug Events is an all-in-one events DJ company that services the Chicago, Northern Illinois, Southern Wisconsin and Iowa region.
We are incredibly excited to announce the launch of yet another web site redesign. This time Team Armadillo Studios worked with our new friends at Calgary based T-Shirt company Boy Burma to not only revamp the existing site, but to customize a new e-commerce solution.
Boy Burma, is a local T-Shirt Apparel company launched in 2011. The owner Jeremy, approached us early this spring to help bring his new and growing company to the next level. Since launching last year, Boy Burma’s unique design have begun gaining traction through various local festivals and word of mouth (for the record, as ravenous Flames fans, Team armadillo is very fond of the Classic Calgary shirts). But Boy Burma wanted to started moving towards a E-commerce solution and to start selling their merchandise online. So after a fantastic afternoon discussion, we set about rebranding the online identity and brainstorming the best solution for the company to reach it’s online goals. (Read More…)
March 2012 may go down as one of Team Armadillo’s most productive months. Not only did we launch our political side project AlbertaTweets to overwhelming fan fare, but we also launched three brand new redesigns. To celebrate such a great month we decided to do a recap of these three great projects.
Lion’s Eye Catering
As one of our longest standing clients, we were ecstatic when the wonderful Miss Monica was looking for a reboot to the Lion’s Eye Catering web site. Since it was one of our very first corporate projects, we were more than happy to take a second run at the web site. (Read More…)

They wanted a professional WordPress powered site that would not only catch the eye of potential clients, but also set them apart from the plethora of local competitors. (Read More…)
