The Carrell Group was one the first clients for Inkhaus Creative, and has been a perfect example of the successful collaboration between client and designer. The Inkhaus and Carrell Group partnership started with branding, design and print collateral. The project was distinctive and successful, setting the tone for a trusting relationship. The advantage Inkhaus had for Carrell was our skill in both print media and interactive design. This gave us the ability to create a consistent brand across both disciplines from the start of the job.

Inkhaus Creative’s full-service capabilities were exactly what the Carrell Group was looking for, and we quickly started the process of website development. We focused heavily on the design and made sure that it would be able to highlight all the services and details for which the Carrell Group were known.

Throughout the Carrell Group website you’ll see multiple portfolios with filter options to find exactly the type of home construction you’re looking to buy. Focusing on the smallest custom details like this is why an Inkhaus Creative site provides value over template-based “discount websites.”

Inkhaus Creative, a Myrtle Beach web design & graphic design studio, was tasked with creating a memorable brand to fit the 2nd Avenue Pier’s highly anticipated remodeling and new construction efforts. As one of the leading branding and marketing companies in Myrtle Beach, our clients trust us to give their campaigns a look & feel that elevates the brand. They allow us to use our fertile imagination to develop a campaign that is cutting-edge and innovative, yet marketable to a wide range of consumers.


The Second Avenue Pier is the longest pier in Myrtle Beach, SC and has been in operation since 1938. Hurricane Hugo completely destroyed the pier in 1989. It was rebuilt in 1990, and has been going strong ever since. The Collins family felt that the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Project would be a strong catalyst for revitalization in the area, so they embarked on a million dollar renovation plan for the Second Avenue Pier. The first phase of the new project will feature a complete overhaul of the tackle shop, restaurant, and top level open air bar. The second phase is a two story retail complex on the west side of Ocean Boulevard. In the future, a third phase on the east side of Ocean Boulevard will be an extension of the pier building, including retail spaces with parking below.

Inkhaus Creative was brought in to help create a new look & better brand awareness. The Collins family wanted an updated, abstract look & feel for the new brand. It was also important to retain the character, history & spirit of the 65 year old pier. We created 3 new logos: Second Avenue Pier, Pier House Restaurant and Pier View Bar & Lounge. Each work together to present a cohesive brand identity for the entire project, yet retain an individual identity. All of this ties in to the new website.

If your project requires a powerful identity to separate you from the pack, Inkhaus Creative will draw on many years of experience in the areas of business, design, marketing and promotions to create a stunning visual representation of your business concept. Contact Inkhaus Creative of Myrtle Beach, SC for your branding, marketing, web design, print design, social media and SEO solutions.

South_of_the_borderWe are thrilled to announce the launch of the official online home of South of the Border, one of the southeastern United States’s most notable attractions. Known for its campy, fun atmosphere, SOTB offers tourists traveling the southeastern coast of the US a chance to relax and recharge a la Pedro.

The previous South of the Border website was in need of a dire face lift. Inkhaus tried its own hand at design kitsch, playing off of the famous South of the Border billboards that line I-95. The move to a unique web address and the development of a custom WordPress theme was the right choice.For the client, this allows for greater control and usability. Our design highlights the festive theme of the famous rest stop. This gives visitors to the site a sense of the vibe of the venue ~ colorful, fun & hospitable to all.

Be sure to check out the custom SOTB blog that we created. Share a comment on your enjoyable memories of Pedro & South of the Border. Next time you’re visiting the Carolina coast, stop by the wesbite first to see happening. We promise your whole family will love a day at the Border!

Inkhaus is proud to announce the launch of Coastal REO Solutions, a Myrtle Beach-based company offering risk-management & assessment services of bank-owned properties. Dedicated to stabilizing real estate market conditions, CRS is a company moving forward through innovation.

Our task was to develop a brand with a highly professional look. We started with a logo, establishing a corporate identity. We assured the brand would be visible in a competitive market by producing print ads for various major publications. Then Inkhaus designed a media kit brochure and a powerful website. The IDX real estate software we installed & customized will help potential clients find properties easily. This will help define Coastal REO Solutions as the leading asset management company along the coast of the Carolinas.


Inkhaus develops brands by first understanding the client’s priorities. Coastal REO Solutions needed to have the power to provide updated bank-owned property information on their website. Our solution was to develop a searchable custom MLS real estate database that would meet their expectations and needs.  Not only does the website provide the user with a comprehensive & accessible list of bank owned properties, but also allows us to search the entire MLS with custom features, such as:

In addition to these powerful web features, the site has a blog allowing the client to keep customers updated with local and national REO news. The entire website is custom developed in WordPress, allowing the client to easily update their web content. Inkhaus can truly customize your website to meet any of your needs and requests.

Coastal REO Solutions is developed & driven by innovators who refuse to allow the market to determine their fate alone. Inkhaus is proud to have a partnership with such a company, and we look forward to a long & lasting relationship with tomorrows market leaders.

At Inkhaus, we don’t ‘play favorites’ with our clients. Each have their own set of needs, concerns and ideas about what it takes to move their business forward. It is our job to listen, learn & develop marketing & design concepts that make sense to both the client and the target audience.

However, not all clients are created equally ~ Some make a point to be as involved as possible in each stage of what we do. Others are just as happy to allow the Inkhaus team to build & develop an effective marketing campaign for them. In either case, we are equipped to bring the best ideas to light, growing them into effective campaigns that translate into dollars & cents for our clients.

Jason Ellis is a prime example of a client who is ‘hands-on’ in all the right ways. He takes the initiative to bring us ideas, and has the professional sense to allow us to help develop them into successful strategies. Unafraid to try new ways of communicating (check out his Myrtle Beach Home Blog) and connecting with his client base, Ellis has managed to generate business in an extremely competitive & difficult market.

One of the biggest challenges in developing an effective web presence for any kind of business is in streamlining the way we update & maintain the site. Businesses evolve, and marketing strategies must also grow to meet the demands of a changing market, fickle customers and new technologies.

Clients come to us because we operate as if we were their own personal in-house design dept. You call us ~ we answer. Your business is changing, and your website needs to reflect that ~ not only once per quarter, but weekly – sometimes even daily. Take a look at the recently upgraded  Sago Plantation site to see an example of how we’re putting the power back into our clients’ hands. Utilizing a CMS (Content Management System) engine powered by WordPress, we’ve set up a customized site that clients can update at will, easily, with no fancy coding knowledge required. If you can use a word processor like Microsoft Word, you can use WordPress!

This client is a Real Estate Developer, and as such, wanted to do more than simply list which properties were for sale, whom to contact, etc. This is a rapidly changing market, and the better we can inform our customers, the more likely they are to buy with confidence. Powering our clients’ sites with CMS technology allows them to attract qualified buyers with greater frequency, driving sales & increasing revenue.

A final point regarding the WordPress engine: we’re able to offer clients access to their website stats in a very visual, easy-to-read format. This improves accountability ~ both in our efficacy as web designers/marketing consultants, as well as for our client’s ability to track what kind of potential customers are visiting their site. This is powerful software that is making a difference in the bottom line for our clients’ businesses.

Ever since we took your advice and had you convert the Sago Website to a WordPress-based site, our traffic has increased 50%. I have a Sago Tour this weekend and it is a lead I got from a Google blog alert! Thanks for all of your help and support! – Jason Ellis
