Deb Deffaa of Trident Network hired ERA404 to create the strategy, design, encode, and development for their remote social network, Seamate. Seamate includes eight main sections, including: Social, Messages, Videos, Music, Pictures, Games, Cards and an online ecommerce system. ERA404’s strategy and design spanned all eight sections while the encode and development focused on Seamate Social.
Trident Network projects a worldwide product launch in late 2014.
The design and development of a web site, while significant phases, are frequently a smaller part of the Creative Process than most people think. The production and strategy phases are really what shape the product to align to client expectations and goals.
Sullivan + Partners approached ERA404 to revamp their online presence, re-organize their content and simplify their messaging, engage their core clientele (authors, publishers, and consumer), and provoke their call to action (contact). And all of this needed to happen within a limited timeline and budget.
Strategists created Strategic UI/UX (image 2) of the site content, to ensure time and cost was factored into the results. Designers created the Creative UI/UX (image 1) from the client-approved wireframes. Developers worked from a pre-existing WordPress template (PixelEntity OneUp) based on the client-approved design to help launch on-time and within budget. The site was tested, the client was trained, and the project delivered—all within a few weeks time.
The synergy between ERA404 and Sullivan and Partners, together with a strong strategy and some creative, quick decision-making, not only made this project possible, but also beautiful and successful.
Chris Christian hired ERA404 for the strategy/organization, design and encode the prototype for PCCS, an application that enables system administrators to manage networks of computers.

Event Producers David Steinberg and Laurie DeJong approached artists at ERA404 to translate the creative concepting for Yahoo’s 2012 Global Sales Convention set design into a video animatic. These renderings were used to communicate the versatility of a set design that featured video and lighting panels at various levels deep, producing a multitude of impactful “looks”, all fully choreographed to a full production of presentations and theatrical cues.
Orlando-based Software developers, Utopic Software, hired ERA404 to concept, design and encode the user interface for their enterprise suite of applications, Persystent Software. The interface features intuitive navigation, context-sensitive help, a proprietary/original set of 24 icons and implementation of various Infragistics .NET widgets in a clean, comprehensive Web 2.0 design.
