“We wanted our brand and logo to be able to translate our product into a persons mind without a word being said. Marwan was instrumental in providing us with a professional image that was more than we could of imagined. Marwan’s creativity and vision helped us create a brand identity with our business values together in a very authentic and bold LOGO that truly represents what we are. This is a partnership we have, and I would have no other than Marwan in my corner.”

“Marwan provided exceptional service and value during a complete redesign and branding of our website. He developed our site with great knowledge on web design, user interaction and usability. Secondly, he provided creative recommendations that assisted us in further cementing our value proposition. Finally, Marwan was very patient during this exercise, and showed intelligence and leadership in driving the project. I would strongly recommend Marwan to companies looking to re-invent and re-brand themselves.”

New Look for SIPrep.org

New Look for SIPrep.org

Here was a nice little write up in the Alumni Magazine for Saint Ignatius High School Prep for our newly designed website, SIPrep.org:

“SI launched a new look to its website in August thanks to a West Coast grad and an East Coast company.

The site’s new look is the creation of Marwan Salfiti ’93, a web designer formerly with Monster Cable, and the founder and design director for Brandwell Creative.

Salfiti was part of an advisory committee that met two years ago to evaluate the look and user feel of SI’s former website. The group urged SI to redesign its site, and Salfiti was hired for the job.

Students, parents, faculty and eighth graders weighed in on an earlier design, and Salfiti incorporated a variety of suggestions to come up with the final website, one that uses the school’s colors and a collage of several of the school’s six campuses.

“I wanted to build on the rich history and heritage of SI and its longstanding reputation as a preeminent city school,” said Salfiti. “The design tells the story of SI then and now, with photos that are visally exciting for everyone.”

Salfiti hopes that when alumni, parents and students visit the website, they feel as if they are actually inside the school. The website and the institution should match. My company specializes in creating this kind of experience.”

With Salfiti’s design in hand, SI then turned to Finalsite, based in Connecticut, which sells its content management system to schools around the world. Thanks to Finalsite, students, faculty, parents, alumni and board members each have their own portal – a page where they can find news, information and resources just for them.

“I’ve worked with Marwan as both colleague and as a contract designer. Marwan has always delivered quality work with a high attention to detail. On one project, I hired him to design the GUI for an iPhone application. Before he started he spent allot of time understanding the requirements, and went further by learning what our solution was capable of and the dynamics of the iOS SDK. As such, he acted more like a development partner than just a designer. What he delivered a design that was clean, instinctive, and simple to use.”
