We’ve been busy

Just in case you checked our blog section, you might have noticed we haven’t updated for a while. We’ve just been too busy working for our clients!

This year have worked on some fabulous projects helping for instance the Camden Opera House develop a stronger identity, collateral and a brand new mobile-responsive website with multimedia capability, embedded third-party ticketing system and a integrated donation module. The new website has been well received!

We’ve also launched a new website for Maine Farmland Trust. The content for this large new website has been completely restructured to help visitors find information more quickly. We’ve also added lots of new functionality (mobile friendly, e-commerce, easy donation, easier to administer, etc.).

We have worked closely with the Maine Department of Transportation and the Katahdin Tourism Partnership to create a series of interpretive panels.  This project required extensive historical and local research and translation in French. We thank the Dead River Historical Society as well as the Benedict Arnold Society for their support and fact-checking. These panels will be installed by the Maine Department of Transportation along Route 27.

 

We have also continued to work closely with the Experience Maritime Maine team and the Maine Office of Tourism to further develop the website and take care of all social media activity. We’ve seen a huge increase in traffic.

 

 

Experience Maritime Maine Unveiled at 2015 Governor’s Conference on Tourism

On March 17, Bonneville Consulting unveiled the newly designed Experience Maritime Maine website, social media assets and updated brand at the Governor’s Conference on Tourism, an annual professional development and networking event for members of the tourism industry and other interested stakeholders overseen by the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development.

Experience Maritime Maine is a multi-regional initiative in collaboration with the Penobscot Marine Museum, the Maine Office of Tourism, and other partner organizations to encourage tourism by enlivening and strengthening the public sense of the numerous possibilities of maritime-related travel destinations in Maine.

BC presented EMM’s updated brand as well as a completely new website, rich with images and functionality including thematic search capabilities, tags and geographical location. EMM’s website is designed as an online magazine. It offers a wide range of maritime stories suggesting places, events and heritage as an incentive for itineraries of Maine coast travel.

The presentation of the EMM website was perfectly in line with this year’s conference theme, “Know Your Audience to Craft Your Story”. The Experience Maritime Maine website will serve as a powerful outreach tool for visitors from outside of Maine as well as Maine residents to experience the array of travel experiences surrounding the rich heritage, culture and dramatic natural beauty of Maine’s coast.

“Thierry & Brenda: I think the session went very, very well and it created some renewed enthusiasm around EMM!”
Kathy Goldner, Coordinator for Experience Maritime Maine

A new look for the Camden Conference

Complete website redesign with updated functionalities and mobile/tablet applications.

Since 1987 for one weekend each February, the Camden Conference has been “bringing the world to Camden” by hosting a focused meeting of speakers, journalists, and academics to discuss and address foreign affairs and world issues. The Camden Conference attracts attendees from various backgrounds and ages, all of whom are interested in foreign policy, public discussions and in learning more about world affairs. The most recent Conference attracted over 800 participants, and with the adaptation of current technologies, the Camden Conference is now available to people worldwide.

Bonneville Consulting was hired to completely revamp the Camden Conference website with current functionality and a refreshing modern look, taking this very prestigious organization to a new level of recognition in their space.

UPDATE SINCE THE NEW WEBSITE WAS LAUNCHED

  • The conference sold out much earlier than in previous years thanks to a new and more exciting website.
  • The addition of a combined registration/membership form increased membership signups.

Online Arts and Culture Magazine V2

maineartscene.com is an online arts and culture magazine dedicated to representation for all across the state of Maine. The publication was started in 2008 and at the time, had the look of other similar publications such as The Huffington Post or the New York times–very text heavy with a lesser focus on the images.

In the summer of 2014, maineartscene.com was in need of an updated look, and the concept of flipping the old into the new was explored. The result is the magazine is now more image heavy with a rich design that looks smart and modern while still providing visitors with the content they need. With the new design of the site, the essence of what the publication strives to do is evident: highlighting the breadth of arts and culture in Maine.

A Beverage Company in Belfast

Complete marketing solutions including creation of logo and branding, packaging (bottle labels, beverage 4-pack), marketing collateral, merchandise, an e-commerce website, social media presence and business consulting.

There was a time in Belfast, Maine when a number of companies manufactured beverages, mostly sarsaparilla which was then thought of as a “cure all” or having medicinal qualities. In the late 1880s, Dana’s, Skoda’s, Dalton’s and Leon’s were making sarsaparilla in Belfast and at the height of production, producing over 500,000 bottles per year. There was also the Belfast Beverage Company, a soda bottling company that for over 30 years was located right along Belfast’s downtown waterfront.

Fast forward to 2014 when a local businessman had a dream of recreating a part of local history and commerce, and started making 100% natural soda syrups for use both commercially and at home, as a way to liven up drinks and desserts.

Belfast Soda Company hired Bonneville Consulting to create all of its business and marketing collateral including a logo, business cards, labels, packaging, rack cards and a robust e-commerce website.
