    ROBERT HASTY, INKHAUS DESIGNED ARTWORK

     

    The Holiday Season can be a difficult time for a lot of folks. A seemingly endless shopping list to conquer, a shrinking budget with which to do said shopping ~ and let’s face it: our businesses don’t run themselves while we’re visiting relatives.

    For a lot of us, this is proving to be an especially challenging winter. All one needs to do is turn on any Major Media News Network to hear a chorus of Bah-Humbugs from pundits & politicos alike. It’s about this time that I really start thinking about what is most important to me ~ Family.

    As in many households, my Grandfather was an important, central figure ~ truly the patriarch of our family. I spent a great deal of time with him as a young man; his ideals, philosophies & work ethic played a major role in my development, and I hope to pass those lessons on someday soon.

    Recently, I visited my Grandfather in the hospital ~ he’s been battling an illness for some time now, and this last stint was a real struggle for him. It is always difficult to see a loved one suffer ~ we continue to want to see them the way we did as children: Strong, Resilient, maybe even Indestructible.

    I wanted to do something for him this Christmas that would remind him of the strength and success that characterized his life. His father, Robert Keller Hasty played Professional Baseball from 1919-1924 for manager Connie Mack of the Philadelphia Athletics and was able to share the field with such legends as Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth.

    On my last visit to see him, I was given a scrapbook kept of my Great-Grandfather’s illustrious career. I created this custom poster design, documenting an important part of my family’s history. Baseball is sacred in our family as it is in many American homes, and many of the values my Grandfather learned & passed on to me were taught through the game itself. Did you share a similar experience in your family? What games and activities were sacred to you and yours? Leave a comment and let us know! Read the rest of this entry »

    INKHAUS RADIOLAB ~ FAVATA ~ SIMPLE TROUBLE

    I love the creative process ~ the medium is almost secondary to the actual feeling itself. The idea.

    I wrote “Simple Trouble” on Election Night, as the polls were being counted. I kept a web browser open, checking in every 30 minutes or so to see how far ahead Barack Obama had climbed. I finished the 1st draft of the tune as he was beginning his acceptance speech. Usually when I’m composing in Reason, I don’t have any other music or news or anything on. I kind of retreat into my shell and dig around for what is, hopefully, some Inspirato. Because Inspirato cannot be manufactured.

    But this was a little different, and I can’t help feeling that maybe I was just a little more hopeful that evening ~ we all have our own ways of documenting important moments in our lives, and writing music is one of mine.

    bon appetit!

    SAGO PLANTATION DISCOVERY PACKAGE AD CAMPAIGN

    Inkhaus was asked to develop an ad campaign for Sago Plantation at Legends. Recent shifts in our local market demanded a campaign driven by innovation, with accountability at its core. The campaign started with a print mailer and was followed up by an e-newsletter. With custom email marketing the client was able to see real time stats on how many emails reached their target destination, who viewed the email, how many times they viewed, and which links were visited from the newsletter.

    Our clients are happy to report that they received solid leads directly from this campaign ~ real estate tours were booked, driving business to these developments. This kind of campaign is effective because it is designed to sort those prospects who are actively interested in investing.

    INKHAUS EVENT ~ LITTLE CITY MUSICAL THEATRE CO. ~ ROCKY HORROR

    Charleston, SC-based Little City Musical Theatre Co. was looking to make a splash on the regional theatre scene. They decided to produce a revival of Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show Live! This would be their 2nd production as an incorporated theatre group, and they wanted to represent their brand properly. Inkhaus Creative Director Sam Favata was hired to play guitar in the show. He seized the opportunity to bring the two businesses together, and a flyer design was commissioned.

    Inkhaus created this flyer design ~ a hip, modern take on the classic iconography of the show. The production received rave reviews, and future performances are being planned. We look forward to working with Little City again, as we love to see fellow independent businesses grow and thrive. As Dr. Frank N. Furter would advise: “Don’t dream it, be it!”

    SAGO PLANTATION AT LEGENDS WEBSITE DESIGN

    When INKHAUS was asked to re-imagine the Legends development’s Sago Plantation web presence, we knew there was no need to “guild the lily”. Since Sago is a project that practically sells itself ~ 3 award winning golf courses nestled among 400+ acres of primo residential property in a choice location doesn’t hurt ~ we concentrated on a design that would serve the client in several unique ways.

    First, we made sure that the home page gave potential homeowners access to any & all info they might need: full-color maps of the developments’ featured amenities, actual building plats that clients can view, download and print—even mortgage contacts are made available to prospective buyers. A HUD report is also available; Legends realtors are as invested in the protection of clients’ assets as they are in expanding them. And with an INKHAUS-designed web presence, those assets are most assuredly expanding!
