Armadillo Studios Inc.

EmilNath.com

One of the first projects Armadillo Studios launched was for the Corporate Entertainment site “Empower Entertainment”:http://www.empowerentertainment.com. Almost two years later we are proud to launch our second project for Emil Nath.

With that we proud to release “EmilNath.com”:http://www.emilnath.com – The new home for Corporate Entertainer and illusionist Emil Nath.

This new corporate web site incorporates the floral design elements from the original Empower Entertainment web site, with personal headshot of Emil and Veer’s wonderful “DF Egret”:http://www.veer.com/products/typedetail.aspx?image=DET0000191&WT.ac=home.081001.1.txt_img.luxury font to create a enticing atmosphere.

Our goal with this design was to provide a minimalist web site, which would focus on Emil as a performer while also providing potential clients a glimpse into his unique performance. We feel the subtleties of the fonts and layouts combine to really showcase his professionalism and his unique performance.

The University of Calgary’s SESAH Lab

Armadillo Studios and the University of Calgary’s SESAH (Spatial Analysis of Environment, Society and Healthcare Lab) are “proud to launch their newest web site.”:http://webapps2.ucalgary.ca/~sesah/

“The SESAH Lab”:http://webapps2.ucalgary.ca/~sesah/ (formerly the SPARCS Lab) contacted Armadillo to help develop a brand new site; which would be easy to update and would allow the graduate students the ability to collaborate on collected data information.

Collaborating with the SESAH Lab, we constructed a new site which integrated a new Content Management System for easy updating. In addition, we developed a separate student login area. This area allows students and professors the ability to collaborate and comment on collected data sets. They can store files and discuss the changes to the data.

Additionally, this new site gives the SESAH Lab a unique and sophisticated presence on the University of Calgary’s web site. A web site which showcases the progressive nature of the lab and its work within the world of Spatial Analysis.
