We were excited when Tier One, our longtime public relations partner, came to us looking for a brand refresh and website redesign. Tier One is a PR company that helps innovative brands strengthen their core message and gets that message out to the audiences that matter. It's imperative for them to stay on top of the competitive market, so to kick off the brand refresh, we updated their logo with a newer and cleaner look. This modernized logo, along with a stronger branding color palette, help to enhance the company's web presence and visibility.

Tier One Logo

Now that we had a refreshed brand, it was important to have the website match. Their existing site was mobile friendly and already used Drupal 7 (a content management system), so we really only wanted to update the look and feel. Keeping their entire existing framework, we came up with a clean design that showcased the new brand. We also wanted to help focus on the company's core message and really highlight their impressive client list with this new look. When it was time to start development, we created a seamless workflow to implement the new design while the old site was still active and in-use until we were ready to "flip the switch" on the new site. This was important to our client, and helped create a smooth transition from the old to the new.

So, if you are looking to update your company's brand, we're here to help.

Contact us to get started.

10th Anniversary Campaign Sneak Peek from charity: water on Vimeo.

We at Cleveland are passionate about brand building. We are also passionate about making a difference in the world we live in. This past holiday season we made a donation on behalf of our friends and clients to charity: water, a fantastic organization who’s striving for clean water for all. charity: water obviously understands the importance of building their brand and maximizing their impact, both through messaging and the work they do. They shared a sneak peek with donors of their 10th anniversary campaign. We thought we’d pass it along.

The problem with email attachments

We've all had that moment where we try and attach a file to an email that's just too big to send:

Do you ever see this?

Ever encounter a message like this?

Besides having size limitations, sending attachments via email are prone to being stripped out due to company email policies. This can be very frustrating when you are trying to send a 'compatible' file to us, or asking us to send a file again because you aren't receiving it.

You could mail us the files on a DVD or USB drive, but that adds days and shipping costs to the process and doesn't guarantee secure transfers nor a successful delivery!

At Cleveland, we've been working on an in-house solution for our clients. Our primary requirements—as always—have been security and convenience, without sacrificing one for the other. Our new, SSL-encrypted, Secure File Transfer tool can be found at upload.clevelanddesign.com, and provides easy uploading and downloading of files on our collaborative projects.

If you're familiar with our older FTP service, you'll recognize some features in the new setup. However, we've updated the user experience and interface to simplify and secure the transfer process, allowing us to share files together faster than ever. After logging in, you'll be presented with a simple, drag-and-drop upload box above a 'Begin Upload' button.

Another enhancement we've put together just for you is the ability to auto-notify any of us once the file(s) you've selected have been successfully uploaded to our server:

Before clicking that 'Begin Upload' button, just select one of us from the drop-down menu, and go ahead and upload your files. We'll receive an email as soon as the transfer is complete. Why waste time emailing us after the fact when you can have it done automatically?

When you need to download files, Cleveland will send you a unique, secure download link that instantly downloads the project files to your computer—without needing to remember usernames or passwords. Just click and you've got that latest Photoshop file of your fabulous new website design!

Cleveland is all about strategic, timely, and secure collaboration. Our new Secure Transfer Tool supports all of these things and we know you're going to love it. We are excited to share our tools with you and look forward to collaborating on your next great campaign.

PS: Look for the new 'Send Us a File' link at the bottom of our website and bookmark it for your next project with us!
