The Mark Project

Well it’s been a while, the last time we did a makeover of Mark it was during the last big flood and their site was down so we took it over and helped them get the word out. So fast forward 8 years or so and now they have a new site! It’s a fresh re-do that is mobile/responsive and a lot more up-to-date. Thanks and good luck Mark!

As we enter our 40th year , MARK continues to provide economic development, housing, community revitalization and technical assistance programs to the region. We serve the Towns of Andes, Bovina, Middletown, Roxbury and Shandaken as well as the Villages of Fleischmanns and Margaretville.

The MARK Project Inc. is a 501-c-3 not-for-profit, tax-exempt rural development company that unites efforts and secures resources to build and revitalize our communities. Contributions to the MARK Project are deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

Catskill Mountains Scenic Byway

Located less than 2 hours North of New York City, the 52-mile Catskill Mountains Scenic Byway primarily follows New York State Route 28, with short extensions along New York State Routes 42 and 214 through the heart of the Central Catskills.

The Catskill Mountains Scenic Byway connects the hamlets of Phoenicia and Pine Hill, the villages of Fleischmanns and Margaretville, and the towns of Olive, Shandaken, Middletown, and Andes all within Ulster and Delaware Counties.

We invite you to wind through the Catskill Mountains on the Scenic Byway that takes you on a journey through historical, scenic, and charming hamlets and villages – each unique with something special to offer. We look forward to showing you why the Catskills always feel like home.

Get Out and Walk!

ScriptrailslogoWe were invited to create the logo, brand, website, all printed materials, advertisements and billboard etc. for a new initiative in Delaware County – Prescription Trails. “The Prescription Trails, or ‘Script Trails, initiative focuses on increasing the number of steps a person takes. O’Connor Hospital, working in collaboration with the Delaware County Public Health Services, Margaretville Memorial Hospital, Tri-Town Regional Hospital and Delaware Valley Hospital, the Cornell Cooperative Extension Delaware County, and the Rural Health Alliance of Delaware County seeks to enhance the population health and disease management initiatives by implementing Prescription Trails.”

We started with the big, long-term picture of how the brand and all potential materials will be used and a final logo was created and chosen. Then the brand went to work: website; patient materials; physician materials; printed brochures; advertisements; billboards and more.

This project launched in the first month of 2015, participating physicians have received all their materials, and we are so honored to have been chosen for this project, creating everything from the ground up, A to Z, that we are carefully watching the site stats grow and the word spread!

The site will continue to change and grow as more information for both patients and physicians is added and this is a long-term initiative that will constantly change, grow, improve and saturate Delaware County! In fact, the 2015 1,000 Mile Challenge from O’Connor Hospital had been added and almost 300 folks have registered already as of January 6!

So, we are in it for the long haul with years of working together in the future and participating in our small way to encourage everyone in Delaware County to Get Out and Walk!

We Hear Bells in These Mountains …

Wedding bells that is. Weddings and Celebrations are taking the Catskills by storm! And here at CMS we could not be happier to see the flurry of activity – and the business boost to many of our clients.

msfSo, we have been working together with one such client – Maple Shade Farm – to build their fantastic Wedding and Event business and we finally broke this segment out to its own website – It was time frankly, as the new business segment is all grown up now-with a fully booked 2014 season and a quickly filling 2015. Now, all the excited couples, and Mothers of the Brides have a website completely dedicated to celebrations on the Farm to go to, browse the pretty pictures of past events and get the low down on how to create a one of a kind farm/barn wedding in the Catskill Mountains. Maple Shade Farm has done a lot of work adding fantabulous improvements and amenities and we wanted to create a website that showcases all the possibilities for that Special Day!
