Happy Birthday, Wall-to-Wall Studios.

October 16, 2014


On October 16, 1992, Wall-to-Wall Studios began as a 2-person operation in a non-descript building in the Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA. In 2014 we're a 31-person operation (still in non-descript buildings) in Pittsburgh and Honolulu, HI (and a guy in Buffalo, NY). Thanks to our family, friends, clients, colleagues and other partners everywhere for the love and support throughout the years. Cheers!

Wall-to-Wall Studios Rebrands Island Air Identity, Advertising, Website and Passenger Experience

September 9, 2014


When it comes to airline travel, everyone agrees it can be frustratingly complex: something has to give. Island Air is looking to change the game in Hawaii, to make inter-island travel as simple as it can be. Wall-to-Wall Studios was hired to develop the new brand strategy, identity system, advertising, marketing and to re-think the entire passenger experience, from online booking to boarding to baggage claim.



Many improvements have been made from customer service to operations. Upgraded conveniences like free, no-hassle WiFi, multiple charging stations and amenities at the gates (complimentary beverages, snacks, live entertainment, chair massages) have also been implemented. There are other surprises coming on the horizon, but the biggest improvement we hope to make is the customers' perception of air travel. Heads up: 

Change is in the air.

Wall-to-Wall Studios Designs and Develops Website for the Silver Eye Center for Photography

September 8, 2014


Wall-to-Wall Studios designed & developed the website for The Silver Eye Center for Photography, a nationally-recognized, non-collecting institution exclusively dedicated to contemporary photography. Founded in 1985, Silver Eye has been at the forefront of celebrating photography, both as an expressive art form and as a medium that brings to light the telling details and larger stories that influence and inform an understanding of ourselves and the world. With a singular commitment to exhibiting and promoting contemporary photography and photo-based multimedia, Silver Eye is unique in Pittsburgh and the surrounding region.


Silver Eye began in 1979 as two separate organizations: Blatant Image Gallery, a cooperative gallery designed to provide exhibition space to local fine art photographers, and The Silver Eye Photographic Workshop, which brought nationally known photographers to Pittsburgh to exhibit their work and to conduct workshops. These two organizations merged in 1985 and became the Blatant Image/Silver Eye, which later changed to Silver Eye Center for Photography in 1992.


The responsively designed website was developed with the WordPress content management system and utilizes parallax scrolling to deliver an elegant user experience. The responsive design approach responds to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation by using a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad to mobile device, the website automatically switches to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities.
