The process: Vortex worked closely with The Dental Center’s team to streamline content, create a fresh look, and craft a modern design for the various services offered. A key point was highlighting its in-house dental prosthesis studio. The content was re-worked to convey a sense of family, approachability, and compassionate care.

Vortex sought to brew up a stunning website for fix! that showcases its offerings while also integrating point of sales and inventory tracking.
The process: Vortex worked with fix! owner Monica Moen to showcase the highly customized space with a custom-designed website. Important elements included impeccable attention to detail and unparalleled attention to beauty on the coffee shop’s website.
The process began with Jonathan David Sabin photographing the litany of coffee offerings, incorporating a visual style that pairs well with the Chauncey Building’s modern interior. It became apparent early in strategic planning that Vortex could also create an integrated app to pair with the website that featured a streamlined ordering and check-out interface, allowing hotel guests, students, and business regulars to order their caffeinated concoction of choice quickly and efficiently.
The result: Located steps away from Film Scene, Iowa City’s independent cinema, Vortex Digital Business Solutions helped perfectly show the elegance and top of the line service offered at fix! Team Vortex created an integrated POS system, website, and online app that allows customers to order directly from the website or newly-released mobile application.

This was achieved using a carousel presentation on the homepage with different enrolling questions on each slide – the different enrolling questions target different demographics, successfully segmenting the service offerings for different groups (the needs of a golfer, for example, are different from a dancer.)
These varying questions differentiated the focuses into clear ‘camps’ where potential clients can analyze and create unique physical and life goals.
The result: Team Vortex utilized its decades of experience in benefit-driven, attraction based marketing to integrate customer segmentation and detailed service offerings for Peak Health and Performance. Previous experience in the mind-body restorative health space allowed Vortex to create a captivating, informative, lead-generation website for Dr. Jones’ business.

This is showcased through a robust photo gallery for the store and seasonal products.
The result: A modern, photo-centric website that successfully showcases Bass Family Farms’ story, events, and products for sale. The bright colors and gallery-style photo layout result in an online portal designed to bring families to their activities and directing them to the online store during a period of uncertainty when large gatherings are not suitable.
