This site showcases the (mostly) digital work of Andrew DiFiore from both Virtual Arts Studios and answerYES Interactive as well as random thoughts and experimental projects too volatile to be contained anywhere else.

    H&L Air Systems’ website gets a much needed redesign. And with every website we build (or rebuild) you automatically get Search Engine Optimization or SEO (of course). In addition, the owner wanted to promote the relaunch with a new radio spot (for Carrier), “No Quacks” IAQ online ad, and “Fall Cool Cash” Flash ad (all featured on the website) and track conversion via Google Analytics and CrazyEgg.

    {Ed. Note 4/18/10: H&L Air Systems changed its name to T&H Mechanical Systems earlier this year, requiring us to update all the copy and graphical elements (including the Flash animations). We also did a little bit of SEO magic to push the new name out to the search engines. At the moment, a full-blown redesign is pending budgetary approval but given that three years have past, a face-lift is warranted.}

    Norwalk-based meal-prep and delivery service Cookin’ Dinners is the first of its kind in the Northeast, preceding its big West Coast cousins Super Suppers and Dream Dinners.

    answerYES Interactive got involved with the start-up franchise six months ago when founder and gourmet chef George Gardone approach us to build the ecommerce website, mailer, and web-based reservation system and menu management.

    answerYES worked with George closely to design the right look and feel for the online presence as well as how the back-end application should function, including support for multiple stores under multiple owners. The entire site was built from scratch using the the latest ASP.Net C# framework and Microsoft SQL Database optimized for fast order processing.

    The Care Center (TCC) has been selling home medical equipment — everything from scooters and wheelchairs to cold packs and colostomy bags — for over 20 years in Old Greenwich, CT. When it came time to take the business online, the owners turned to answerYES to build an ecommerce site. We actually did a little more than that, answerYES helped TCC with print ads, store signage, and establishing an 800 number with a messaging system. We also provided on-site training to TCC’s sales staff on how to effectively manage products under their new customized osCommerce platform. And if they ever needed additional support, we were just an email or phone call away.

    The year was 1965, four students at Boston College form the rock band The Leafmen, named after an off-campus residence Greenleaf Hall where three of the members lived. Over the next several years The Leafmen became a fixture of Boston music scene.

    Decades later the band members would reform to play small gigs in and around the Boston area. They do a lot of Van Morrison, Rolling Stones, Beatles, but their version of In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida sounds as if they were channeling Iron Butterfly themselves! The drummer of the band, Sal Rizzo, is my uncle but I really came to appreciate their talents when the band got up (impromptu) to play at my cousin’s wedding.

    I originally created The Leafmen logo and small promo site (no music) as a tribute in 2005. But in 2007 I received a demo CD from Sal along with some old photos. I decided to convert the website into a Flash microsite, featuring three of my favorite tracks from the CD. Had a lot of fun pushing the envelope on the Flash animation. Enjoy!

    A simple little website for Nasco Construction Services, a construction consulting firm that specializes in preparing cost estimates. With over 40 years of estimating experience in all areas of construction including renovation, rehabilitation, and new construction; Nasco regularly estimates over 200 projects per year. The owners were incredibly easy going and accessible, making the development process a breeze! A little bit of Flash animation, a little bit a of clever JavaScript (for the collapsible “treeview” effect), and the site was live within a week. Everybody is happy.
