Congratulations KUTOA!

KUTOA, which means “to give” in Swahili, was founded by young entrepreneur, Joey Grassia. The idea was born in late 2009, after Grassia had witnessed the effects of malnutrition during his time in South Asia and after he experienced a health scare of his own.

For every KUTOA health bar you purchase, a nutrition pack will be delivered to a child in need.

KUTOA was founded on the belief that each and every person has the power to make a difference. To that end, they have consciously handcrafted delicious health bars that not only allow you to live well, but also enable you to empower change around the world – bars that are both good for you and good for the world.

The Los Angeles chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO-LA) announces that it has launched a completely revamped website in order to enhance the organization’s ability to communicate and collaborate with its membership and to attract new members.

NAWBO-LA represents the largest women-owned business community in the country, and is committed to the success and growth of the the Greater Los Angeles Business community – a region where over 509,000 women-owned businesses reside. The women-owned business community is the fastest growing segment in the economy, with such small businesses creating two out of three new jobs.

The new website was designed by Citrus Studios, which is owned and operated by Kalika Yap, a NAWBO-LA Board Member and V.P. of its Education Committee.  Yap was also the recipient of the organization’s Rising Star Award in 2010.

The website is the first in several new initiatives that the organization will be rolling out this year, including a NAWBO-LA Blog that will be accessed through the website and its first entrepreneur’s conference, Innovate 2 Own – I2O, an all day conference which will take place on September 24, 2011 at the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

Here’s the Calendar of Events:

Insight Imaging Web Design

Insight Imaging Web Design

We’re so happy to announce that our Citrus Studios Client: Insight Imaging, a provider of diagnostic imaging services won several awards: a Silver Award,  28th Annual Healthcare Advertising Awards* and a Bronze Award, Aster Awards** recently for the redesign of their web site!

Congratulations!

Insight Imaging Case Study:
Insight Imaging, a provider of diagnostic imaging services, was faced with a common problem: inadequate communication between the company’s marketing and information technology divisions resulted in an in-house developed website that fell short of both groups’ expectations. To quote Insight Imaging, the project “resulted in a less effective and relevant over-arching online structure that does not speak to [our] core markets and customers.”

Citrus Studios was selected to remedy this disconnect. In addition to redesigning and developing the primary website, Insight Imaging also wanted to reimagine the company’s intranet and e-newsletter, thus ensuring a cohesive online presence. At the same time, Insight Imaging was redesigning its off-line marketing collateral and materials. Citrus was asked to develop concepts that would remain relevant and usable for at least four years.

Per Insight Imaging’s request, Citrus designed and launched a clean, modern site—easy to read, easy to navigate, and clear at differentiating the company’s two primary business sectors: fixed and mobile imaging centers. In the field of imaging, credibility is of key importance. To that end, Citrus focused on positioning the company as the go-to source for expert knowledge in the radiological/ diagnostic imaging space. Case studies and white papers featured on the site further affirm the company’s position as an imaging expert.

Citrus is currently working on phase two of the project: to redesign and develop Insight Imaging’s intranet. The intranet is a primary means of disseminating information to Insight Imaging’s 1,700 employees working in over 30 states. This internally accessible website is a heavily used resource, and boasts vast amounts of information. One of the key challenges in reworking the intranet is to synthesize and present this information in a manner that makes it as accessible as possible. A homepage “dashboard,” intuitive hierarchy, and clean navigation will put information at users’ fingertips.

E-newsletters—monthly electronic bulletins sent to all staff—work in conjunction with the intranet in terms of sharing information throughout the company. These highlight everything from company events to “fun facts” about the firm and its team members. Citrus redesigned the e-newsletters to reinforce the overall branding, as reflected in the website, intranet, and other marketing materials. One of Insight Imaging’s requests was the ability to easily update the e-newsletter template. With that in mind, Citrus prepared a modular format that provides maximum flexibility within an established design framework. Insight Imaging’s webmaster is able to update the e-newsletter template with ease.

When complete, Insight Imaging’s dual new sites—one external and one internal—as well as its new e-newsletter template will unify the company’s marketing and communication materials like never before. As a result, Insight Imaging will be able to more effectively communicate with its various audience groups, both internal and external.

At Citrus Studios, we provide ongoing support for development.  Yesterday the newest version of WordPress was released; a program that is used mainly to develop and maintain blogs that allow our clients to tell their story. Citrus Studios has immediately taken to the process of updating this framework for all of our clients.

The new version of this software is lots of fun! It features lightning fast redesigned linking workflow which makes it easy to link to existing posts and pages, an admin bar so you’re never more than a click away from your most-used dashboard pages, and a streamlined writing interface that creates a simpler and less intimidating writing experience for new bloggers. There’s a bucket of candy for developers as well.

The goal: to implement the best darn web software for publishing your story on the web and sharing it with the world. The only limit to what you can build is your imagination!
