Custom iPad app for private equity group creates an intuitive and visually stunning presentation.

Pritzker iPad App

The wall-mounted display in the private equity firm's corporate headquarters provides visitors with an interactive experience on the firm's portfolio companies.

A custom application utilizes iPad’s face-detection capabilities to “launch” the experience. And each touch-screen interaction controls all 20 iPads to present images, graphs, charts and text. Company info and imagery can be updated via a WordPress Content Management System

Hartford Design also created a version of the presentation for a single iPad, for company representatives to use in meetings with clients.

The complete design solution was strategically on target – creating a compelling and customizable presentation that provides each user with a unique experience.

American Web Design Awards picks Hartford Design’s work for Arbor Investments

The website for Arbor Investments’ Trudeau Distributing was part of a rebranding effort for Trudeau. The effort included a new brand vision and voice as well as site design, development and  search engine optimization.

This Graphic Design USA annual competition - the American Web Design Awards - celebrates the power of well-designed websites and other online communications to attract audiences, generate engagement and response, and promote products, services and ideas. The idea resonates: entries nearly doubled this year. Still, only 100 design organizations were honored this year.
