<!-- content_main --> <div id="content_main" style="display:none"> TechniArtist Media is a full service media creation firm located in South Bend, Indiana. Our dedication is not to thinking outside of the box, but rather to turning the box inside out. Web Print Film Video Post. TechniArtist Media is a leading web design and print design company based in South Bend, IN, specializing in cutting edge web site development, E-commerce, and creating corporate indentity for large and small business. </div> <!-- content_about --> <div id="content_about" style="display:none"> TechniArtist Media is a small design firm located in South Bend, Indiana dedicated to the creation, exhibition, and promotion of all things media. Having the outlandish collection of 20-somethings ready to work for hire that we do, TechniArtist Media's region of service is limited only by the binds of the internet – which pretty much deems our reach limitless. If you're currently in search of a solution for anything media-related, feel free to contact us for more information or to request a quote on your project. However, if you're the adventurous type, read on... Our primary focus is creating custom web sites and internet presentations for business in the small-to-medium size range. Though, we have been known to brainstorm solutions for large corporations a time or two. Do not be afraid. Although the site you're currently viewing is complex and dynamic at best, we are very capable of creating more (or rather less) than highly expensive Flash web sites, and we rarely charge an arm or a leg. TechniArtist Media's defining principal is to: not rip the customer off. It seems that every guy and his dog are professional web designers and filmmakers these days, and it is our goal to help you separate us from the phonies. Because we are not one of them. We don't even think we breathe the same air they do. TechniArtist Media has been around for much longer than before the dot-com boom, and much longer than the unfortunate dot-com collapse (our opinion is that it was bad planning – like six street intersections). Formed by a growing media guru (Patrick A. McIntire) in 1995 as a side job doing professional sales flyer layouts for area companies, TechniArtist Media formally established itself as, well--TechniArtist Media, in 1999. Since then we have continually developed our palette of services from Print Design to Internet Media, and are now venturing into the realm of Film and Video, and Post Production services. TechniArtist Media was established as a company rendering services for the people in business. We commit ourselves to providing an enjoyable, personal, and professional creation experience. Most of our staff even has a sense of humor! TechniArtist Media is capable of providing solutions in varied realms of media creation. Our belief is that by sticking with designers that understand and are familiar with your business for all your needs, you will see the benefit of establishing a consistent Corporate Identity without the expense of having media creators on staff or having to separate your solutions across providers. This allows every element of your founded identity to be managed effectively and remain in interdependent cohesion. You could call us the codependency experts if you must? If your business is currently in startup, reorganization, or you're just trying to reassert your edge and profitability, then contact us to get information on how we can provide solutions to your project. Heck, we'll even give ya a free quote! What are you waiting for? TechniArtist Media is currently working with several providing partners to get the word out about our services in the best possible ways. (This means less useless SPAM marketing across the internet). IndieClub.com is an excellent internet networking resource for individuals in all realms of the film industry. TechniArtist Media supports independent film and video makers by providing them with discounted rates for design services of both web and print promotional materials. MarketingTool.com is one of the leading marketing service provider indexes on the internet. TechniArtist Media has listed with them in the effort to reach out to our most potential clients. </div> <!-- content_portfolio --> <div id="content_portfolio" style="display:none"> TechniArtist Media believes that its important for a design firm to list past projects with detailed information on what modules of the work that they created. We give great thanks to past clients for allowing us to include their completed web work in our portfolio. Though this is not the complete list of projects TechniArtist Media has completed in Internet-related creation, it does focus on some of the more prominent work we have done over the years.

The staff of TechniArtist Media includes a diverse group of both in-house designers and developmental gurus paired with contracted freelance media artists. This assures a freshness and consistently evolving approach when it comes to tackling new projects. The unity and camaraderie of all of these forces working together not only allows us to think outside of the box – but also bring the outside occasional inside. We've even knocked out some windows and installed a fully stocked juice bar. (metaphorically speaking of course). When you are considering bringing on TechniArtist Media as your web creativity provider, know that: You will always receive great creations matched with competitive and low costs. You will always be treated equal whether the scope of your business or project is large or small. You will always be delivered a fully functional and cost-effective solution in a timely manner. You will always remain able to contact us with any questions, be involved in the creative process so that your vision is considered in the work, and we will return your phone calls. (Some designers are nightmarishly negligent on keeping in contact) And last but not least... You will always rest assured that once a final project is delivered, our staff will stay familiar with the details of your account so that we may offer expedient modifications and updates. Ready to contact us, or get a quote? Before even considering working with TechniArtist Media, know that we are not money-hungry dot-com-ers out to make a quick buck. We will never show up at your place of business or to a brainstorming session decked out in power suits or lavishly showing off our new luxury sports cars. We are semi-conservative, yet visually edgy, well-rounded individuals dedicated to maintaining strict business and design ethics, and this is reflected in all the work we do. TechniArtist Media believes in including clients in the creation process in all ways that the client requests. We will not take your sensitive corporate identity and ignore the most important process of creating media for hire: the client's opinion. You will remain involved and conscious of what's going on. And if for some reason you can't, well, we have winged it before a time or two. TechniArtist Media staff believes in modular design principals. The idea that any creation is the collaboration of smaller pieces forming a big picture. It is with these ideas in which we operate. We begin from scratch, building the foundation of a concept, and outward from there. The key is the power of modular interdependencies. Text here, graphics there, guiding the eye of your visitors – weaving aesthetics, marketing, and psychology all into one. In the end, it gives the visitors to your site the best possible experience. TechniArtist Media is committed to several basic rules: Creating quality content is 2 parts guiding the human eye, and 3 parts identifying relative subject matter. We will work to understand the product or service you are selling until it kills us. Having this research in hand is the best possible way to know how to reach your customers. Creating an effective web site is 2 parts ingenuity, 3 parts marketing. We will fashion your web presence to be sharp and edgy, or soft and atmospheric. It is our dedication to create your online presentations with logical navigation and functionality, allowing your customers to make sense of and easily find and learn about what they are looking for. Creating an effective execution plan is 2 parts grunt work, and 3 parts using common sense. We will assist you in deciding upon a suitable budget for your project, which often determines complexity—and assert the range of time needed for completion and delivery. After that, it's to the drawing board to bring you ideas. You worry about how it looks, how it feels, and how it represents your corporate identity. We'll worry about if it loads quickly, if it's stable, and all the other considerations that go on behind the scenes within the big picture. We'll carry your ideas to the screen, or present you with original ideas of our own. Web Designers shouldn't talk to you in code. That's why we don't. Our Abilities Hello, I am your web designer. If you've been calling around, or shopping around for web design services, you've probably heard gibberish when asking what was included in some designers' abilities. You've heard such terms as Javascript, Visual Studio, .NET, blah blah blah... Here is what you'll hear from TechniArtist Media: Want us to create custom graphics? Make flashy animations? Program a quick-response database? Help you sell your items online? Hold conversations in English? Call you back? Create a site for you from scratch? Explain to you every process ... or not? Help you find a hosting facility? Maintain and update your web site? Something else? Ask. It's quite simple, really. Is your business ready to conceptualize, create, and promote a web site on the Internet? Do you want personal attention and a custom solution? Would you prefer a solution that is high quality and low cost? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you've found the right place. Sure you're not ready yet to contact us, or get a quote? As much as overnight successes and the wealth of dot-com boomers believe, e-commerce and selling products online is not as easy to pull off as some providers would like you to think. Most of selling is marketing. Most of marketing is creating a trustworthy customer-to-company relationship. And that includes creating a recognizable and respected product identity. Take Bob's Custom Furniture, sporting a site profiling his 3-year-old son lounging in one of his creations—while it may be cute, it looks more like your neighbor next door rather than a quality manufacturer. Would you really want to give a neighbor your credit-card number? Probably not. That's where TechniArtist Media comes in. When you've decided that your current online sales process just isn't cutting it anymore, or you're just interested in expanding – talk to us. We'll hammer out a new custom web site, shopping cart, invoicing system—the works. We'll even help you establish a merchant account for use with online transactions. And this, all the while, paying high attention to helping your customers find you on search engines. We can even – through creating a quality design – help them trust your product's identity. Staff with TechniArtist Media are experienced with all forms of online shopping systems on small and large scale. Whether it's 1, or 1,000,000 widgets per day, you all good. C'mon! Reach out and touch someone! Contact us, or get a quote! TechniArtist Media enjoys helping businesses take control of their online endeavors. Through Usability Testing services, staff of TechniArtist Media can research and test your current web site for various usability issues.

The opinions present in our Usability Testing Focus Groups give us the ability to offer several reactionary angles-- from the most simple internet newbie, to the most advanced power computer user. Discounts through Usability Testing Clients of our Usability Testing services are happy to find that our costs do not stack.
