Amy Catherine Coats' Projects


    • September 2010 to November 2011

    KA-BAR Knives wanted to redesign their website as part of an overall effort to market knives to hunters and outdoorsmen without alienating their core audience - current and former U.S. military personnel. Rawle Murdy worked with web design and programming teams to develop a website that would both contemporize and unite the brand. The massive e-commerce site redevelopment included more than 1,200 web pages and a fully customized content management system.


    • June 2011 to August 2011

    ESite called themselves a software solutions company, but offered so much more to clients. They were consultants, analysts and strategic partners who worked with businesses to help solve operational challenges and discover target markets. Rawle Murdy helped eSite redefine their business position and then created a website that clearly delivered that new position to potential clients.

  • Lucky Ducky

    • April 2011 to April 2011

    Leveraging local and social media, Rawle Murdy created quite a buzz for Piggly Wiggly with an April Fool's stunt announcing the beloved brand was changing its name to Lucky Ducky
