Did you know that mortgage brokers are essential?

I’m not joking.  Without them, the banks wouldn’t have competition, leaving you to foot about a 3% interest difference.  That’s quite a bit of dough when you own in Vancouver – or anywhere in BC for that matter.  Luckily for us, there are mortgage brokers, and the best brokers can be found at MA West.

To showcase their knowledge, credibility and general awesomeness, we built their site in WordPress using a clean and smart Flipside design.  We made sure that visitors could easily see how and where to contact them through social media.  We also included some valuable mortgage tools which would help educate visitors.

Now, people all across BC can get in touch with a mortgage specialist with ease.  MA West’s mortgage brokers are a stellar cast of knowledgeable characters with a next-to-none excellence record. Be sure to check them out if you think you can’t afford to buy or need a custom-tailored mortgage solution.

Get Jacked coupled with Flipside Creative on this 24-Hour Create-a-thon.  This non-profit event is Flipside Creative’s baby and they have been putting this on for years.  Essentially, they run a contest where Non-Profit organizations can submit their applications for assistance.  The Flipside Creative team carefully reviews all the applicants and accepts as many as possible to help fulfill their “dreams”.  This year, Flipside Creative selected 3 organizations and we got to work on November 3rd-4th.

Prior to the 24-hour Create-a-thon, the Flipside team outlines the “must-haves” for each selected applicant as well as comes up with a couple additional “nice-to-haves” if time permits.  All the work began on November 3rd at 8am and went straight through the day and night and wrapped up at 8am Friday morning.  The chosen organizations came into the office at 8am on Friday morning for the unveiling of the work completed.

I packed up my stuff and took it down to Flipside’s office and worked through the night with the ladies of Flipside.  Natalia kept us all on track and assisted me with content population for the LMDSS website.  Stacey worked on new branding for The Vancouver Fruit Tree project.  She came up with a FANTASTIC new logo, business cards, brochure and other stuff…not only meeting the “Must-Haves” but almost got the whole “Nice-to-Have” list completed as well.  This was a GREAT surprise for them when Stacey showed them their new branding.  And Kim, the mast brain behind the project, designed the LMDSS website as well as had the PocoMo project on her watch.

The LMDSS website was built in WordPress, of course, and we successfully launched the website November 7th, 2011.

Congratulations to the Flipside team for such beautiful and giving work.  Your heart goes into everything you do and it shows with this project for sure.  It was a pleasure to be stuck in an office with you for 24 hours+ working for such a great cause.  Looking forward to being part of the team for next year as well.

Westberry Farms live and breathe blueberries – they grow them, handpick them, pack them on-site, and ship them to market with care. Every package of blueberries is filled with the Valley’s liquid sunshine and the sweetness of the rich fertile soil. They pride ourselves on delivering freshness, quality, and that sweet juicy taste that you all know and love every time.

Not to mention they make the best blueberry treats I have ever taste.  AND one heck of a family brunch.  If I wasn’t past the age of adoption, I would put it out there.

Simran took charge of the project and drove it start to finish.  She had brilliant ideas on what the new website needed to be like and exactly what they needed from it.  Get Jacked connected with our favourite design team once again, Flipside Creative, to hammer out this whopper of a site.

First and foremost, we needed to have picture of the family, the fruit, the farm as this is what makes Westberry Farms unique in this industry. They truly are about the family and community.  Because of this, it shows in the berries they produce.  It is almost like they are infused with the family love.

On top of the family feel, Simran really wanted to allow their customers to submit their own recipes.  What better way to showcase your fruit than with customer approved recipes.  YUM IN OUR TUM.  So the ability to submit your own recipe with photo was sure to be a feature on their website.  Aside from those must have features, the website is equipped with all the standard features.

Obviously, we built the site in WordPress so Simran and her family can manage the site in their spare time.

If you find yourself mid winter and craving blueberries, contact Simran at Westberry Farms, there might just be a frozen case of homegrown blueberries with your name on it.

Just follow the blueberry trucks!
