Selected Projects


Capsule

Branding / Portfolio Website

Capsule is Clear's oldest client, dating back to 2003. We've worked on many iterations of their site and this time we delivered a new site built using responsive techniques, tailored for desktop, tablet and mobile. It includes support for Retina devices, and is managed by the Expression Engine CMS.

ARGO

Motorsports Website

The website for Argo has been a fun long-term relationship with the folks at boatBurner. We built out the site in Craft, manage yearly model updates and have built a few additional digital campaigns for the brand including the recent React DigitalShip project as well as the award-winning Tiny Lodge contest.

Antenna

Staffing Consultancy / Agency

Clear just launched the 2nd iteration of a website for Antenna. Running as a component-based site built on top of Craft CMS with a custom integration into SalesForce, the new project was a great collaboration with all involved.

RahRah

Youth Sports Industry

The project for RahRah involved scoping out and building a youth-sports app available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. We're running Craft as an API on the back-end with the app built in Flutter. Grab the app to support your favorite youth sports fundraiser!

ISG

Construction Industry

We partnered with Capsule to launch an updated site for ISG, a nationally recognized multi-disciplinary design and engineering firm. As with many of our projects, it's built on Craft.

MicroOptx

Optical / MedTech Industry

We partnered with Capsule to launch an updated site for MicroOptx, a company purposed with bringing a solution to market for the treatment of glaucoma. Their product, the Beacon Aqueous Microshunt can help a person afflicted with glaucoma when conventional treatments aren't working.

Restaurant Website

We partnered with Morrissey Hospitality and Eva Nelson to bring a slew of their properties to life using refreshed visual brand standards and an updated tech platform. Tria is one of the sites built upon Craft.

Parameters

Office Designer Portfolio Website

This was a fun partnership with Eva Nelson again for Parameters, a workspace design firm in Minneapolis. They are the premier retailer of many high-end furniture brands including Knoll, Framery and Kimball. To give them a flexible framework to showcase their work, the site runs on Craft.

Commerce Bank

Bank / Financial Website

This was another great partnership with Capsule to bring an updated brand look and feel to the web for Commerce Bank. As with many sites these days, we built it on the wonderful Craft platform.

Indeed Brewing

Brewery Website

Indeed has been growing like crazy over the last few years, and their web presence hadn't felt the love for a few years. Indeed's design firm, Duffy, has finessed their brand recently and provided the initial design direction for this project. We knocked out a responsive site using the wonderful Craft CMS.

PTRX

Healthcare Business

Clear has been a partner in PTRX, building and bringing to launch an eHealth platform with content created by clinical therapists for clinical therapists. It provides an efficient way to prescribe remote healthcare regimens for patients & get statistical results for effective follow-up care. It launched with Fairview as its first client, with over 400 physical therapists and athletic trainers using it daily and over 150,000 patients using it for their rehab.

Indypendently

Publishing

A site for helping independent workers stay on top of their game, with topics like taxes, business structures, founder interviews, and more. As with many other sites, we built this on top of the Craft platform.

Peterssen / Keller Architecture

Architecture Portfolio Website

Clear built a second interation for Peterssen / Keller Architecture, a longtime client, with design help by the great folks at eighthourday. It was built as a Retina-ready site using Craft CMS, providing an easy-to-use admin system and easy and quick updates.

Asche And Spencer Music Search

Music Library Web App / Software

Asche & Spencer creates music. The Asche & Spencer Music Search Engine is a web app that Clear built to let you search their library of thousands of tracks simply and elegantly. It operates by using a weighted-tagging system to collectively rank the results based on the combination of tags that you search with. There's a robust admin system so A&S has full control over all aspects of the tracks in the database.

Monopoint Media / Gear Junkie

Outdoor Industry Website

Monopoint Media & GearJunkie are two businesses that Clear helped get off the ground and helped to run on a day-to-day basis for 7 years. We were involved in project pitches, concepting & execution of everything that came through the door. One month we would be coordinating a video shoot or edit, and another month it was a live event or social media promotion. GearJunkie gets about a million pageviews a month and has seen steady growth year-after-year.

UMN Health

Multiple Healthcare-Related Sites

We just launched three sites for the freshly-minted UMN Health organization. As a collaboration between University of Minnesota Physicians, Fairview Health Services and the University of Minnesota Medical Center, all of the sites are built on the Craft CMS and feed content into multiple other properties within the UMP, UMMC and Fairview ecosystem. The three sites reside at Blogs.UMNHealth.org, Consult.UMNHealth.org and UMNHealth.org.

Navab Brothers

Rug Retailer Website

This was a quick project done in partnership with a close friend to update the branding and web presence for Navab Brothers, a luxury textile retailer in the Twin Cities area.
