Northeast Tool Upgrades Their Website To A New And Improved Responsive Site

BURKE continues their efforts in helping clients update to responsive websites. This approach to web design creates a user friendly platform that can be easily navigated on a desktop, tablet, or mobile device. The majority of users access the internet through a mobile device instead of a desktop; that's why it's more important than ever to have a site that provides a consistent experience across a wide range of devices. Northeast Tool & Manufacturing’s website is now clean and pristine due to their upgraded responsive design. The interactive video and images of machinery and employees bring their capabilities to the forefront. The sleek design and pertinent content place the focus on the importance of the company. Rusty Arant, Northeast Tool and Manufacturing’s CEO, stated, "We are very pleased with our decision to partner with BURKE. Our high expectations were exceeded by the BURKE team and the end result was a digital platform you rarely see in the manufacturing space. BURKE, continues to transform our entire online presence, helping us engage our customers, vendors, and employees in new exciting ways." In addition to Northeast Tool and Manufacturing’s responsive site, BURKE also produced and created the videos, photography, and logo for the website. They have been a client of BURKE’s for a year and the process to upgrade and enhance their company’s branding has been an exciting, creative initiative.   About Northeast Tool Founded in 1964 by Larry C.

BURKE Introduces ModHip Foods As Their New Brand Concept and Design Client

Nancy Swan came to BURKE searching for a creative marketing plan for her vegan cashew cheese company, Baby Clare Foods. BURKE stepped in with the responsibilities of the new company name change, the product name, responsive website, and product packaging. Today, Baby Clare Foods is officially called, ModHip Foods, and the cheese substitute is officially called Juba Whip. The website and packaging creative will follow later in the spring of 2016. Juba Whip, the tasty cashew cheese, can be used in place of ricotta cheese in lasagna, and as a filling in enchiladas to replace a chicken and cheese mixture. Its versatility also allows for it to be blended with fruit preserves to use in place of flavored cream cheese to put on toast or a bagel, and can be combined with various spices to use as a dip or cracker spread. Nancy Swan stated, “ModHip Foods’ message is to promote good health and good taste. I want to show my product at shows/expos, and eventually have it be available in stores. Way down the road, I would like to set up a way to give back by helping people who live in food deserts to grow produce.” She continued by saying, “I am so grateful for BURKE’s help so far with the creative process. They have pointed my company in the right direction and I cannot wait to see the website and packaging!” About ModHip Foods ModHip Foods, owned by Nancy Swan, is a nutritious brand that caters to a wide range of consumers who are vegan, vegetarian, lactose-intolerant, carnivore, paleo, and wanting better cardiovascular health. ModHip Foods offers healthy substitute spreads to add into any meal. Juba Whip, ModHip Foods’ delicious and versatile cashew cheese spread, adds flavor and nutrient-density to foods without the high saturated fat that combines well with a variety of flavors. Recently, Swan has added a Chocolate Mousse made from avocados. With the use of BURKE’s label and packaging creative, Juba Whip and future ModHip Foods products will be sold in stores shortly.
