Colortree, Inc. began as an envelop converter specializing in charity mailings. As the business grew to include high quality direct mail packages and G7 certification, the team knew they needed a fresh concept for their own branding and website. I worked closely with the design and operations team to create a useful resource for print professionals.

Original Colortree Website

The revamped presented several programming challenges, including a custom data bridge between the website and their estimating software for real time price quotes. I developed a proprietary algorithm then utilized JSON, jquery and SQL to bridge systems.

The website also featured a custom database and download counter for the hundreds of envelop and die templates offered to agencies and vendor partners, a full print glossary and a private membership area for staff. The membership area offered a robust knowledge base, staff directory and an online human resource solution.

Scope of Work: website architecture, photography, custom JSON and MySQL scripting, firewall and security solutions.
