By Freda Moore | February 21, 2017

The world of web design is always changing, and ecommerce systems are no exception. New platforms enter the marketplace every year, each with pros and cons. If the platform you’re currently using isn’t releasing new features as fast as it once was, or your requirements have changed over time, perhaps it’s time to look for a new solution.

Girls Who Code Visits Ridge Marketing

We’ve had a great start to the year here at Ridge Marketing. One highlight for me was the opportunity to give a presentation to the Girls Who Code group from William Annin Middle School of Basking Ridge. Girls Who Code is a national non-profit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology by encouraging young women to learn about coding in order to pursue careers in predominantly male-dominated technology fields. The local chapter reached out to us hoping to learn more about what coding happens at a digital marketing agency.

The Benefits of Infographics for Digital Marketing

As visual designers, it’s our responsibility to grab our audience’s attention and to present content to them in a way that’s easy to understand. Infographics — also referred to as data visualization or information design — are illustrations that organize complicated, statistics-heavy information into digestible visuals.  When the information is complex and data-driven, infographics are a compelling way to visually communicate, making them a digital marketing tool. Here’s why:

Corporate Video Production for Ansell

Ridge Marketing Produces Heartfelt Video for Ansell

Ridge Marketing Produces Heartfelt Video for Ansell
By Rob Quincy | November 21, 2016

It finally happened. After three years of great collaboration with Ansell, the world leader in healthcare and industrial protection, we can finally show you our work.

It’s not that the previous work wasn’t up to snuff… our eight keynotes and on-site event videos and animations to date were shown on screens up to 15 meters wide in some pretty fancy locales in Carmel Valley, Budapest and Istanbul. But that was state-of-the-company, visionary stuff meant for Ansell leadership, not for public consumption.

This year, we were thrilled to be selected to write and produce the Ansell corporate video. The piece features a “passion for protection” theme, bringing to the fore the values that Ansell stand for as a company – innovation,…

Why I Heart Designing with Grids

Grids – a series of intersecting vertical, horizontal, and angular guidelines – are often used to help structure content in graphic design, typography or web design.

The grid is like a design’s backbone – the invisible system that gives the visible layout its structure and holds everything in place.

Sounds straightforward enough, yet grids can be difficult or even scary for designers to embrace.

Why? We designers enjoy being in a field that allows our creativity to flourish. A grid system, on the other hand, is a series of straight lines that are precisely and accurately set in place.

This embodies some of the contradictions…
