New Businesses
Posted: Sep 27, 2020

Small business owners and entrepreneurs are the backbones of our downtown.  They bring vibrancy, enthusiasm and help us create a community.  They are a passionate group, who work long hours, and who have had to work even harder this year to survive.  We would like to shine a spotlight on some new members to our downtown core.  These folks have been brave enough to open their new businesses during a pandemic; determined not to let the state of the economy deter them from pursuing their dreams.  Please join us in welcoming …

We wanted to thank @dtburlingtonon for the warm welcome on our opening of our brand new store in downtown Burlington “Ornate Room” and for these lovely pictures taken! We are a mother- daughter duo Melody and Rania and we are the owners of the Ornate Room. We wanted to introduce ourselves to you and on why we opened this store 😊 We have been residents of Burlington for over ten years now. Over the past few years we found that when we searched for a nice unique gift for an occassion we always had trouble finding something. So we started thinking of a business idea to open up a store and in a year we turned our idea into a reality! The Ornate Room has different items ranging from home decor, kitchen accessories but our main focus is unique well priced gifts for any occassion. We handpick each item and make sure each item is unique. You will not be able to find it anywhere else. And what makes the Ornate Room great is you can find a gift with any budget you have! For now we are open everyday from 5-9 pm. Come in and say hi! We can’t wait to meet you 😊 #ornateroomburlington #familybusiness #himedecorstorw #burlingtonstore #uniquegifts #uniqueitems

New Street Media helped a multi-faced construction company provide a streamlined online experience //⠀ .⠀ Leonardi Construction is a GTA-based Construction company that was looking for a Professional website that would showcase the vast number of construction services they provided. As a multifaceted company offering a variety of different services, special consideration had to be paid to how to prioritize and showcase content in a manner that would allow any client to find what they were looking for without becoming overwhelmed.⠀ .⠀ The objective was to provide a streamlined design that would ensure that each user can find the content they are looking for in a timely and clear manner. New Street Media put a lot of thought and time into creating a design that would house a variety of different services without discouraging someone looking specific information from accessing it because of confusion, clutter or lack of intuitive design. This provided a unique challenge that the NSM team was excited to take on.⠀ .⠀ As with all websites NSM created, the entire website was a custom UI/UX design and development, ensuring a completely unique aesthetic that enhances the brand and messaging, while addressing the design challenges faced with a multi-service company.⠀ .⠀ The result is a simple, branded design and a distinctive ease of use for all visitors to the site. The custom wordpress design also means that Leonardi Construction in-house team can easily manage, change and adjust content as needed including text, images and clients; allowing them to continuously keep their website up the date as their business grows and evolves.⠀ .⠀ #newstreetmedia #ui #ux #constructionmarketing #constructionwebsite #website #webdesign #design #creative #digital #digitalmarketing #websitedesign #development #buildermarketing #builderwebsite
