If you call Jackson Hole home or just find yourself passing through on vacation, make a point to stop and sample the latest in Italian cuisine from Giovanni’s. Opening this weekend and boasting fresh Italian eats in a brand new family-friendly location, Giovanni’s is sure to be a hit. We recently wrapped up logo and menu design work for the new restaurant and are excited to sample their dishes. Check out the logo and menu, follow them on Twitter at @JHGiovannis and visit them during their opening weekend for a “fun, friendly and affordable dining experience.”
Why is it we live in a world with hungry people when so many of us have food in abundance? This time of year you cannot help but to notice articles like, More Households Request Food Aid, Sharing the Privilege of Abundance or the World The World Food Programme’s campaign—A Billion for a Billion—addressing the fact that for the first time in human history, the number of people hungry worldwide will exceed one billion.
That is one billion people who are hungry and why? Of the one billion, the US alone has 17 million households reporting some degree of food insecurity in 2008, according to the USDA’s annual poll. How could the wealthiest country in the world have hungry people? Not only that, but I live in one of the wealthiest counties in the US (Teton County, Wyo.), who has its own hungry residents.
I don’t think anyone can say they wish for people to be hungry, let alone that hunger to cause developmental issues in children. Although I don’t know what the solution needs to be, this giving season, “Do Something” and join the A Billion for a Billion cause and help make a difference.
Cliff Hansen Memorial Slide Show – 10/27/09 from Alden Wood on Vimeo.
Circumerro Video was asked to produce a slide show for the Cliff Hansen memorial service here in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Cliff was a statesman and a true Wyoming cowboy. His legacy lives on with his children, grand children and great grandchildren. Cliff lived and ranched in Jackson Hole for most of his life, he was also Governor and Senator of Wyoming. We were honored to produce the slide show and work with his family.

Circumerro Video completed a short video of Old Bill’s Fun Run for the Community Foundation. The video showcases the day, the events and the co-challengers and sponsors. It was shown at the awards ceremony and will be on their website.
We received this letter from the Community Foundation:
Latham, Alden and JK,
We are so excited to show our newest Old Bill’s marketing piece to the public! The video turned out so well, and Katharine and I enjoyed working with all of you.
We are so pleased—thanks again!
We’ve started up a new tradition here at the Circumerro office by kicking off Friday mornings with staff breakfast. This past Friday Arik treated us all with his famous Butler Creek Waffles. Being up at 4:30 whipping together the mix didn’t even slow him down later that day.
Check out the recipe and bring a little spice to your own morning.
1 tbl vanilla
1 qt milk
Separate the yolks from the whites. Mix the yolks, vanilla and milk. Beat the whites until they are firm.
3 cups flour
2 tbl baking powder
Mix these into the egg/milk/vanilla mixture
1 cup melted butter
Mix the melted butter into the batter
Fold the batter into the beaten egg whites – some egg white lumps are ok.
Use the waffle iron of your choice. The batter makes ok pancake batter too!
1 cup white sugar
2 cups dark brown sugar
2 cups water
Boil it for a while until it looks like the consistency you like for syrup. Remove from heat and mix in:
1 tbl imitation maple flavoring
1 tbl vanilla extract
Apply generously to waffles. If there is not a lake on the plate, you’re not using enough.
We recently caught word that a series of web videos we produced for the 4UR Ranch has been turning heads. Tucked away in Creede, CO, the 4UR Ranch is one of those pristine gems that requires a “seeing is believing” approach.
Circumerro Video was up to the task, however, and developed a collection of short films designed to give prospective guests an inside look at the ranch and its pristine services.
A recent ranch guest wrote to staff at 4UR, mentioning: “By the way, your videos really helped me choose your ranch for our family’s vacation! They are great and have such a personal feeling.”
With videos tracing program highlights that include fly fishing, kids activities, dining and horsemanship, Circumerro’s team dove head first into the 4UR experience to find out just what makes the ranch so unique. It didn’t take long to learn how the ranch’s family amenities, it’s surrounding lands and legendary Goose Creek all add up to one memorable trip.
Once the videos were finished, they were incorporated into 4UR’s website to give visitors a dynamic visual and personalized tour of the ranch.
4UR Ranch Owner Pete Leavell closed a letter with this sentiment: “Thank you Alden Wood and Circumero Video for the incredible job you did for us! Your professionalism and expertise made working with you a joy and Alden’s unique association with Dude Ranches brought a very personal perspective to the project. You were really able to tell our story and the response from our guests has been tremendous.”
With cooler temperatures around the corner and outdoor enthusiasts ready to stock up on winter gear, Circumerro is excited to announce the launch of the redesigned Cloudveil Fall/Winter 2009 website.
With a focus on fresh visuals, streamlined shopping navigation and social sharing, the new site is a strong testimony to Circumerro’s innovation and expertise in brand engagement and e-commerce.
Taking full advantage of improved visual standards, the project incorporates bigger screen resolutions, rich media capabilities and full-service online shopping technologies.
To refine the online shopping experience, Circumerro partnered with Fluid—an industry-leading performer in media solutions—to bring product page zoom, magnify and streaming video enhancements.
“We aim to continually push the limit on customer and product interaction for all of our e-commerce sites. The Cloudveil project has been and continues to be a crown jewel in our portfolio and we’re thrilled with the results of this redesign,” explained Noah Waterhouse, Creative Services Director at Circumerro.
Social sharing through sites like Facebook, Youtube and Twitter is highlighted through a convenient ShareThis function, along with the addition of user-generated product reviews, allowing shoppers to post, comment and interact with staff and other users.
The site also introduces new partner links to Cloudveil dealers, including Altrec, Backcountry.com, KL Sport and Moosejaw, giving shoppers more options to purchase from other online partners.
“[They] did it again and surpassed my expectations. The new site is beautiful and was delivered as expected and actually ahead of when I predicted…great work by all, thanks for the big push to get this done and all the efforts on improving this important component of our business,” added Steve Sullivan, Founder/President of Cloudveil.
Between work, play and everything in between, we strive to sharpen our skills here at Circumerro. To remain experts in our respective fields—whether we manage accounts, design visuals, craft copy, write code or sell publications—we’re all committed to a school of life-long education.
