Stokes Signs is a high-end, custom sign making company based out of Santa Cruz. They design and produce distinctive signs to help their customers' business’ stand out from the competition. Crux Studio was contracted to help Stokes Signs market their specialized services to a larger audience than the regional Bay Area through an online portfolio. A custom content management system was put in place that allows employees to manage every aspect of the web site.

Crux Studio researched competitive companies, benchmarking websites for content and quality. Design style places a heavy emphasis on photographs of the signs they have produced for the past 15 years and encourages visitors to browse the extensive online portfolio. The general organization of the site and brief category explanations help users to navigate the content as well as informs them of the various types of signs available to order.

Due to the level of customer service and personal attention provided to Stokes’ clients, the website was designed to function as a point of contact for potential customers around the nation. Potential customers are invited to contact Stokes through an information request form where they can upload artwork samples for Stokes Signs to review. Additionally, we created a QuickTime-based 360-degree panorama of Stokes’ gallery to display the myriad of historical signs in the shop.
