Welcome to the Family: The Ninthlink Surfboard

We are beyond excited to share with you the newest member of the Ninthlink family. We just welcomed in this new beauty of a surfboard, hand shaped by Morris & Mango Surfboards and complete with a custom Ninthlink exclusive glassing job. The Ninthlink culture lives and breathes San Diego and when we’re not cranking away at our jobs, we soak up the San Diego experience along with the best of them. We’re known to end up at the beach during our down time, and while a few of us are seasoned surfers, we have an office full of workers that no doubt love to soak in the beach experience.

We purposefully went after a well-rounded 7’0 board that works for everyone. Without being too big nor small, even the most fragile of interns that may step through our doors can get pushed into San Diego’s mush to great avail. But to not thwart any of the seasoned Ninthlink surfers, this Morris & Mango Scrambled Egg style board is known to really come alive when the waves get overhead. Read More

We Love Dribble.

What is a dribble?

Dribble is a community of designers answering that question each day. Web designers, graphic designers, illustrators, icon artists, typographers, logo designers, and other creative types share small screenshots (shots) that show their work, process, and current projects.

Why we LOVE dribble?

In this day and age of so much technology, apps, websites, advertising, and more we find dribble to be a good pool to swim in. Most of the work is either conceptual design, User interface, app ideas, and user experience snippets. As designers & marketers we love to watch trends and pull ideas from other like-minded professionals in the world of digital. With the ability to like and save dribble shots as a member of the community I can refer back to ideas and even jump in the game and post mine. The community is mostly kind and constructive with feedback so it also serves as a free market input areana.

Website Need Some Love?

It shouldn’t surprise you that the average website isn’t an effective tool for it’s business.

It might have branding problems. The image and impression that you give of your business might not resonate with your ideal customers.

Even if you don’t send most of your leads to your website or sell on it, in today’s world, people will visit your website and check you out. If there is a disconnect between your website experience, and the experience of your other sales and marketing touch points, it could be a show stopper.

Follow these 4 steps to audit your website and find out if your site is a star or a show stopper:

1) How long are people on your website? 2 minutes? 3 minutes? The longer, the better. 15 seconds on your website means your site is a show stopper. You can see this in Google Analytics.
2) How many pages are people viewing? 2-5? Fine. 10? Great. 1 page? Show stopper.
3) What is the story someone understands about your business after 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 2 minutes? Is the information and the way that it’s expressed coherent with what you say face to face?
4) What are you discussing on your website? What topics? What emotionality are you using?

We can help you uncover quick fixes to improving your brand and making your website a star that speaks to your ideal customer. Get expert advice today.

You don’t want average…you want extraordinary.

 

Ninthlink Creates Product Demo for CES 2016

Ninthlink designed and built a GUI (Graphical User Interface) for TP Link, one of the world’s leading providers of networking solutions for both Home and Office use, to support a product demo during CES 2016.

At this year’s CES, TP Link unveiled it’s Talon AD7200, the world’s first true tri – band router to market, allowing users to stream on multiple devices, share an entire 4k HD movie in minutes, and send thousands of photos and songs from one device to another in minutes.

The GUI, displayed on a big screen at the TP Link exhibition, showcased a real-time speed comparison of transfer rates for various file sizes and media, highlighting the blazing fast speed of the Talon AD7200 compared to existing connection speeds, which could be paused on demand to play an integrated technology demo video.

Puradigm: Fresh and Clean Solutions

Puradigm offers proactive air & surface solutions through a host of products that each contain Puradigm’s ingenious new technology. We always look forward to providing solutions and strategies to companies such as Puradigm as we get a first hand introduction to the superiority of the product and how this will make a difference in people’s lives. We’ve got one of their systems cranking away in the office to keep everyone here breathing easy and staying healthy.

After learning everything we could about the technology and the company, it was time to begin the leg work on introducing Puradigm into the marketplace with a complete branding package. A branding guidebook for Puradigm was crafted to drive digital and print materials, including a logo, type guidelines, color usage, and pages after pages of how to treat the brand. The style guide then paved the way for the Ninthlink team to implement further services such as sales sheets and brochures, 3D renderings of Puradigm products, video production, a total website solution, and a multitude of sales support. We’re excited to show you how we built the look and feel of Puradigm from the ground up. Watch out for a case study in our work section soon.
