What We Do

Custom Development

We partner with creative agencies to bring their designs to life. This project for Ethical Bean Coffee in collaboration with Wall on the Fly includes animations for each roast and a Shopify store.

Third Party Integration

We worked with St Ann’s Warehouse to create their website designed by Flyleaf Creative several years ago. Most recently we helped them integrate their new Spektrix Ticketing System.

Design + Branding

Working on the Mirror Method with Outsource Marketing, design and development provided solutions to highlight services, book sessions and workshops, and sell training materials.

Middleware + APIs

We strive to help businesses make the most of their online tools. For the Gull Liquor Store we custom built middleware to allow their online store to sync inventory and sales with their POS.

Nightboat Books Ecommerce Website
Ecommerce

We specialize in WordPress and Woo Commerce. This was a great solution for Nightboat Books when they decided to switch to direct to consumer sales.

Bard Prison Initiative, Digital Strategy
Digital Marketing

Partnering again with Flyleaf Creative, Medium Rare Interactive created websites to support the Bard Prison Initiative and their microcolleges. We also provided digital marketing services to coincide with the release of a Ken Burns documentary about their students.

Gunter Bros Meat Online Store
Business Tools

We ask our clients, what problems can we help you solve? For Gunter Bros Meat Company, that was translating a custom ordering system from staff managed to client managed. Their new online ordering system has freed up hundreds of staff hours to be invested in other parts of the company.

Web Apps / Ruby on Rails

Solving one of our own challenges, we designed and built Kitestrings, a password management app for teams. We also can help build and/or maintain proprietary software, like we do for the Fluxwerx Lighting professional estimation tool and Propeller One’s aircraft management tool.

Drupal to WordPress

Being WordPress specialists, we are sometimes asked to migrate sites from Drupal to WordPress. This is what we did for Poets House, updating their design, organization, and entire archiving systems for events and audio while we were at it!
