New Website Design for Dr. Richard Novak Launched

By Laura Reed

Cork Tree Creative has been fortunate enough to work with Dr. Richard Novak of Maryville, Illinois for the past several years to enhance his marketing efforts and attract new customers to the growing practice. One of the first projects we completed for Dr. Novak was to design and develop a standard html website that served as a brochure-style website for him to use to introduce his practice to new clients and cross sell services to existing clients.

Realizing the potential a website offers a practice like his, Dr. Novak decided he wanted a freshened approach to his site so we did a complete web re-design and redeveloped the site as a content management website. This content management site offers Dr. Novak the opportunity to make his own website updates, gives him the opportunity to blog about his practice, incorporates video, cross sell his products and supplements and overall gives him a more powerful marketing tool to enhance his business. We are proud of the new site as well as its diversity of use and functionality and hope that Dr. Novak likes it too!

Cork Tree Creative Celebrates 5-Year Anniversary

By Laura Reed

Celebrating a 5 Year Anniversary in January of 2014, Cork Tree Creative was formed by two women that shared a love for what they do.Merging public relations with graphic design/website design talents as well as social media and SEO expertise, the firm was created so that all marketing services could be obtained by businesses large and small, under one roof. Considered by many clients as an extension of their staff, Cork Tree Creative is also very involved with the local community where they work and live.

To celebrate, the crew gathered at Flamingo Bowl on Washington Avenue in downtown St. Louis. Following in step with the traditional 5-year anniversary gift-theme of "wood," Cork Tree Creative had a ball bowling down wooden lanes, playing "steel from your neighbor" with wooden-themed gifts and and had a great night of laughs while wearing those cute borrowed shoes. Wood represents strength and a solidified, long-lasting relationship and we "wood"n't have it any other way. Congratulations to all of our team and a special thanks to our clients for helping us reach this milestone!
