Helping Rock Bridge Brewing Co. differentiate online

Hub & Spoke recently helped Rock Bridge Brewing Company relaunch online, replacing their dated look with something fresh and mobile friendly.

The new design, which includes original photography of their brewery by Hub & Spoke, uses wood grains, subtle patterns and grids, helps to create the look of a modern and welcoming online gathering place.

Finding Inspiration

When Rock Bridge Brewing Company approached Hub & Spoke, they showed us one of their wooden beer taps, asking us to use its unique character for inspiration on the project.

From there, we worked to make a responsive website design that showcased their events and unique brews with an easy-to-use content management system, WordPress.

Along for the Ride

Hub & Spoke has partnered with Rock Bridge Brewing Company since 2013, when we designed their Rye You Lil’ Punk and Saison beer cans, marking their first foray into canned products.

Since then, we’ve had the opportunity to help them take four brews to store shelves, with their first bottle series set to debut across Missouri soon.

When you’re looking for a website design that works on all devices, also look for a long-term partner—someone who can grow with your business to help you tell your story. At Hub & Spoke, we work side by side with companies of all shapes and sizes to create a powerful and engaging online presence, and we won’t ever leave you hanging.

The old Tiger Quarterback Club website was difficult to navigate and didn’t prominently display the information visitors needed about upcoming events, club news, and the season’s schedule. Continue Reading

The new year is almost here, are you ready?

The new year is approaching faster than you know it… is your marketing plan ready for action? How will you make sure you have a message for every month?

You only have a month left in 2014, so what should you be focusing on to prepare for the new year?

  • Review what worked and what didn’t work so far
  • Are you relying on too many marketing gimmicks? Coupons? Sales?
  • Are you getting new customers, or just keeping old ones?
  • Are you launching a new product or service next year?

So, why am I telling you to do this now?

Well, companies often wait till after the fact to act. It’s never too early to have a new years resolution. Plus, who wants to start the year behind!

It may be as simple as tweaking some wording, or working to achieve a better balance of media placements… but it might also mean it’s time for a new website or a better strategy.
