Celebrating 10 Years!

December 20th, 2013

Pop stars. Fashion trends. Celebrity marriages. Technology. Some things don’t last ten years, but The Killswitch Collective has. And over this time, we’ve learned a lot. We’ve been fortunate to work with a wide range of clients. From start-ups to well-established companies, from corporate businesses to creative endeavors, we’ve (almost) seen it all. As we enter our eleventh year, we extend a big “Thank You!” to all of you. Whether you’ve followed us on Twitter or Facebook, worked for us, or used our services, we couldn’t have done it without you. We are happy and excited to share with you our updated website, featuring all the wonderful projects we’ve been a part of. We’d love to hear what you think! Here’s to ten amazing years and hopefully many more!

Launching Luxury Online

October 1st, 2013

Chicago’s Drake Hotel is a historic icon, and naturally, when The Drake team approached us to design and build a new website for the hotel, we jumped at the opportunity to create something special. Anyone who walks into The Drake will find themselves ensconced in old Chicago style, from the architecture and décor to the gorgeous hallways, warm and rich with history. The Drake has provided countless experiences to remember, and we thought it was time that the website does the same. We were able to take the vision of The Drake Hotel team and create a unique, highly captivating website that showcases The Drake Hotel as a historic icon, while bringing it in to the modern day. The new sophisticated site offers a contemporary look and a streamlined user experience. With improved navigation and functionality, the website provides quick and easy access to everything from accommodation options and dining menus to meeting space floor plans and wedding galleries. thedrakehotel.com

Bringing Artists and Audiences Together

September 1st, 2013

ArtPower! is the University of California at San Diego’s most energetic compilation of music, dance and spoken word. The program provides exciting opportunities for the UCSD and San Diego communities to engage in discovery and dialogue with creative innovators in the arts. To coincide with ArtPower!’s ten year anniversary, Killswitch has designed and built a new website which allows for easy, accessible exploration of all the programs and events that ArtPower! has to offer. To keep things fun, the color scheme of the website shifts between blue and white during the day and bright orange and white during the evening. The site backend gives the ArtPower! team plenty of flexibility to upload multiple images and videos for each event or program. A multimedia section allows for further exploration into artists, curators, students, supporters and performances that visitors wish to learn more about. artpwr.com
