Designer Genes 21 – A Down Syndrome Awareness T-Shirt Client – Chris Johns Media

From: founder, Nigel Barnard, contacted jordanpfowler consulting for strategic marketing and web development help. Nigel was launching a business that offers Down Syndrome Awareness branded t-shirts and apparel which are thought provoking, humorous, and empowering. He needed an e-commerce site up within two weeks in order to be ready for exhibit booth the Buddy Walk. (No small task, especially when product wasn’t expected to arrive until just before the event).

We engaged in the task immediately, in our usual partnership with Chris Johns Media, who provided the web design that matched our strategic marketing plan and original copy. Through this efficient partnership, we were able to hand Nigel the keys to his site before the event, hitting our two week deadline and delivering a quality site.

We also developed his social media platforms including a Facebook page and custom skinned Twitter page. jordanpfowler consulting also set up our client’s hootsuite site for easy social media management. In the coming days, we will skin a landing page on Designer Genes 21′s Facebook page, allowing contests and other applications to be utilized. Promotional plans also include activating a blog that is CSS ready for content and e-newsletters.

Nigel’s story of his experience with Down Syndrome is compelling and his company gives back blessings to other children with Down Syndrome through scholarships to the Kinderfrogs program at TCU. We hope you take the time to peruse his shirts. My favorite is the the R-Word shirt.

Thank you Nigel for trusting us with this life dream. We are proud to be a part.

Feet That Move

It seems like just yesterday since we did our live recording for Feet That Move. This weekend, we are showing a video that kind of shows the whole timeline of the CD. This video was fun to create, because it was fun to look back and see what God has done through the record over the last year and a half. Check it out:

Building Community Highlights

Every year, Northwood Church has done a major outreach in its surrounding cities. For the last four years we have done a project called “Home Makeover”. A project very similar to ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover. Everyone loved it! This year, we did something even bigger – Building Community. We took on two schools, neighborhoods, and a senior center. Through that, we invited the community to join us, to work along side of us. It was a fantastic event.

Here’s a video we shot to preview Building Community. We showed this video about 3-4 weeks before the event weekend.

And here is the highlight video from the weekend. Great job Northwood! You truly made a difference in the lives of many this year.
