Empire Media is a design firm based in beautiful Rossland BC, serving the Kootenays and beyond. Empire is headed by designer, David Livingstone, who specializes in web and graphic design, and new media. Empire strives to retain the highest standards, keeping abreast of the latest design trends and web technologies, to give your company image a unique and striking identity. Empire can create the brand identity you have been looking for, including all your related graphic design needs, like business cards, letterhead, brochures, flyers and ad layouts.
Empire also specializes in creating unique web experiences. By new media is meant a field that is wide open. We are living in an era of exciting possibilities, afforded by the adapation of the computer to the arts. It begins with a basic web presence, but new media is availing the world with a slew of new opportunities to enhance the online experience. It's categorized as "Web 2.0". But what it means is you can now advantage your website with an array of features that will enrich your clients' visit online, and in turn, your company's identity.
Empire's aim is to give careful consideration to your identity, and to create a style of branding that accurately reflects it, while using both technology and a design style to make it effective.
Before embarking on any project, Empire wants to learn a little more about you. Who you are, what image do you want to convey, and what are you trying to achieve? Like every person, every business is unique, and your look and identity is specific to you. If you are interested in hiring the services of Empire, give us a call to discuss your needs and to enquire about our fees and services. Or, use our email form on the contact page.
Empire specializes in the creation of websites that are both visually attractive, as well as taking advantage of the latest developments in web technology, to produce sites that have "stickiness". That is, that employ interactive capabilities to make your site visitors' experience more engaging. Empire believes that the power of the web is not in enabling commerce, but as a communication medium. This philosophy is the core of what is being described as "Web 2.0". Meaning, the web is regaining success, but this time as medium for social interaction.
This does not mean the web does not hold significant commercial possibilities. It is important to understand why people surf the web, and to offer technologies that cater to these needs. Your site should fully exploit these technologies, and not to "sell" anything, but rather to offer a means of interactive participation. The goal is to offer added service to your clients, which in the long-run, is a benefit to your business, in terms of market appeal.
Empire also specializes in graphic design, and can fulfill an array of design needs, including brand identities, business cards, letterhead, signage, posters, flyers, brochures, and invitations. Empire understands the importance of visuals in the expression of your message. "A picture is worth a thousand words." You can convey more with a carefully chosen color palette and effective images, and an overall "look and feel", than you can with paragraphs of text. It's true, people don't like to read. But, people are attracted to personality or character, not product, and it is through thoughtful design, that you can immediately convey much about who you are.
