The Salt Lake City area has an extraordinary number of public spaces in nature, but one in particular — the Jordan River — had lost its charm with the local populace over the past fifty years. Pollution overcame the natural attraction flowing through the local communities and into the Great Salt Lake.
The U.S. EPA funded a vast environmental restoration project for the Jordan River, including a community engagement component. Braindunk team members worked on this EPA-funded project to build a mobile app that integrates community history, local site-specific stories, and resources along the Jordan River Parkway system with mapping tools for visitors.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized the My Jordan River app as a Next Generation Compliance Example.

Braindunk is proud to have recently launched a new responsive CMS-powered site for the nine-branch Kitsap Regional Library in Washington state.
The Kitsap Regional Library system had recently updated its brand identity and needed a new online presence. Braindunk harnessed the full power of the enterprise-class Drupal CMS to provide a consolidated site for all devices to KRL’s staff and patrons.
The new site provides comprehensive event listings for all nine locations as well as the traveling Bookmobile’s daily stops. When it is time for the library to publish its quarterly print publication, Inspire, a seamless workflow provides direct importing of all events from the site into an Adobe InDesign document, saving countless hours of conversion and hand-entry when done the “old way.”
Armed with a user-centered approach, Braindunk produced user personas and scenarios for all of the Library’s key audiences. In-person and phone-based interviews brought real patron feedback into the design, development and testing processes.
Cutting-edge user experience connects people to the arts
Design agency Cognition Studio, Inc. and development firm Braindunk collaborated on a web experience with bold typography, branded photography and video, and readability that scales across devices.

Braindunk was selected from amongst dozens of firms in a nationwide talent search to build the new Napa Valley Film Festival site.
More than 50,000 unique users visited the site in the first few months of its launch.
“Multi-day pass sales have exceeded goals,” says Jason Redmond, audience development director of the Napa Valley Film Festival.
“With the ability to give chefs and wineries equal visibility to films and filmmakers, the site showcases all aspects of the experience better than our old site.”
“Braindunk has completed work on the website kit upgrades ahead of the schedule specified in their contract.”
“The files were great. We’re making progress on the programming and will be done in time for the focus group. Please give your team our appreciation!”
“The BirdNote website looks so great on mobile devices! Thank you and your team for the good work. The responsive theme upgrade represents a significant milestone for BirdNote.”
We are waiting to meet you
