After an in-depth Kickoff meeting, our team got to work articulating the school’s goals and really getting to know their audiences. We tested the current website against these goals by asking real life students, faculty and parents to do specific tasks. The results were less than encouraging but helped us build a new wireframe to organize the content.

Along with a dedicated team at the Tech, we began to collect copy, images, forms and linkouts. With such a busy and engaged school, there was quite a bit to gather! From there we set to work organizing it not only for the current students their parents and school staff but also for prospective students and their families. We did this through a lens for inclusivity and to an audience who might not speak English or could be neurodivergent.

After our team’s designs moved to the development phase, our final steps were training up their IT department so that they could maintain the site themselves and then we took the site live.

"Thank you so much to the entire Communications, Ink team for making our website redesign project a success! Everyone has been phenomenal to work with and we are thrilled with the outcome of the site." - Joe Marino, Director of Technology, Essex North Shore Technical & Agricultural School


Wenham Museum approached Communications, Ink to help them prepare for their 100th anniversary and the rollout of their Vision 2022. Over the decades, their collections have evolved as has the lens through which they address social issues. Their branding, designed in the late 1990s, no longer reflected this.From a practical perspective, their current logo was only one-color and hard to scale across digital platforms.

For more than 25 years, Communications, Ink has been helping non-profits like Wenham Museum rebrand and adapt to new audiences. It starts with our Deep Dive that takes input from staff, members and donors to fully understand membership, programming, operations and future goals. During that time we also considered a name change but together we determined the name properly represents who they are. The name also has significant recognition. What we uncovered during the Deep Dive was that while much has changed over the past 100 years, the desire to gather, play and learn has remained compelling for all ages. Working off this concept, the new icon is an interpretation of a whirlygig. The new color palette is energetic and youthful. Their new brand focuses on providing timeless experiences for visitors of all ages and interests through child-centered, artifact-driven experiences that interpret our local history. Their new icon, a whirlygig is a colorful, simple, kinetic toy built and enjoyed by children and adults for generations. The color palette is a playful interpretation of the vibrant energy the museum generates for play, creativity, engagement and learning.

“The Wenham Museum is a beloved North Shore institution that has delighted generations with its collections and programming. We are very excited to introduce our updated brand that is grounded in our 100 year history and looks to the future with excitement for what we have to offer families and their friends.” - Kennan Anderson, President of the Board


OEM Press wanted to increase their visibility with new and existing audiences but realized they needed a better website experience. We did an audit of their existing website, along with their third party platform, and quickly realized the current site had significant design flaws and they were paying large fees for services they weren’t using. The challenge was building a new website without losing decades of sales history. After choosing a new platform, we were able to build a website that allowed them to showcase their library of books for sale without losing any of their important data.

Using our flywheel concept, we worked with the client to teach them how to run their own marketing campaigns. We added a promotional landing page to their website, designed an Eblast for their MailChimp account and updated their social media platforms. The experience of shadowing us via Zoom helped the client to learn by doing and they’re now off and running their own campaigns!


This women-owned business turned to us to create a new brand and website. The owner wanted a color palette that set them apart from other electrical contractors in the greater Boston area. Since the branding would appear on business cards, hardhats and t-shirts as well as trucks and a website, we needed a simple logo that was easy to recognize. We designed a dynamic website that provides an overview of the company, is a recruitment tool for new employees and allows visitors to get in touch with the business 24/7.


This boutique tax advisory firm asked us to design a website and business cards for their newly-formed company. We designed and launched a website that would inform their audiences of their services, keep them up to date on recent tax changes and allow prospects to learn more about the company.

When the non-profit Gloucester Community and Cultural Center was looking for a marketing partner to help them create a new brand and build excitement for a waterfront project, they turned to Communications, Ink. Through our Deep Dive interviews with local residents, business owners and board members, we were able to identify the key message themes and differentiators that would appeal to their diverse target audiences. We ideated a new name for the project, Pier 58, to be a nod to the rich maritime history of the location.

The new logo was designed as a multi-dimensional reference to the waves of the waterfront, a spotlight at a performance and the ability of the venue to ripple out into the community by connecting people and supporting the financial future of the city. Using the architect’s renderings and our own drone footage, we created a video that showed the new building being built virtually on the proposed location. We designed and launched a new website for the people of Gloucester to be able to access more information and get involved.


Communications, Ink was hired by Fidelity House CRC, a Massachusetts health and human services organization, to rebrand the organization after a recent merger. We worked with the client to create key messaging that would bring the two entities together in an authentic way. Based on our Deep Dive interviews, we created a brand statement for them to anchor their new marketing efforts. We ideated their new name, Waystone, and designed a new logo with an icon that is a marker set along a path to guide individuals and reassure them that others have traveled the path before them. With the new logo and messaging in place, we deployed the branding across their print, signage and digital materials.

The merger required a complete re-design of their existing website. We scripted, directed and animated a brand video to be used on the website to explain the merger and the updated mission of the company. We were able to design an exciting new website with navigation that allows care givers and families to quickly access their program information.


Founded by the family of Henri Termeer, a pioneer in the biotech Industry, this private Foundation approached us to help launch their new entity. Together we created a custom icon and married it with a font that represented the collaborative opportunities of their programs.

We are so excited to see the impact they will make in the lives of so many young patients.

When COVID-19 struck, the founders of Pyxis saw an opportunity. They owned a large packaging company and wanted to help with the PPE crisis. They quickly retooled and were soon producing easy to assemble, recyclable face shields. With time of the essence, they reached out to Communications, Ink. We quickly turned around a custom logo that leveraged the “green” aspect of the shield, executed a socially-distanced photoshoot and put up a new website. In just a few weeks they had a new website and were taking orders for their shields.


With a singular focus on bringing paleo-inspired meals and classes to families and individuals, this start-up, retail store needed the visual assets, logo design, retail design, packaging and advertising to announce their arrival.

Building psychographic profiles, we set to work creating a distinct brand with its own custom font and color palette, marketing plan, meal “map,” menus, packaging & uniforms, retail design plans, van customization, signage, billboards, print ads, website, social media strategy and a custom-designed, retro broth cart.

The final design is a bird in flight representing wellness and good health. The wings are in the shape of a thymus and the color palette of pinks and blues represents the colors found in thymus at a cellular level. It was a true honor to be a part of their important work to bring health to more people.

With a large fan base on the North Shore of Massachusetts, the owners of Bagel World needed to build a new dynamic website that would offer more content and online ordering. First we helped them update their logo and then wrote, designed and launched a new, mobile-friendly website that integrated with their third party ordering platform. The site was built during COVID-19 which meant a photoshoot was out of the question. So we retouched their social media images and layered in stock photos for the visual assets. Easy to update, the owners can go in themselves and make revisions to their hours, menus and locations. That’s something you can sink your teeth into!

We worked on visually representing the company brand by alluding to the well-known icon for nuclear power and a spotlight representing the helpfulness of their services.
