Learning to Read Has Never Been More Fun

Sarah Ford has dedicated her entire professional life to helping children with learning disabilities. Her passion has always been to empower youngsters and teach them tools to be able to successfully navigate past their educational struggles. Sarah has had extremely positive results throughout the years, but she always wanted to find a way to make her training more fun, and thus more accessible. That was the goal she set out to achieve when she approached Whole Wheat Creative earlier this year. She wanted a way to take her proven track record of successful methods and tools and make them something kids would look forward to doing. Together, we came up with Reading Bandit - an interactive iPad application geared towards teaching children (both with learning disabilities and without) how to read and write.

iOS Game Development Houston iOS App Store

Bandit is a hilarious and encouraging cartoon raccoon who takes kids on an adventure through the alphabet. At the start of an adventure, kids select an animal avatar to represent themselves and off they go with Bandit. Bandit takes them through each letter of the alphabet - teaching upper and lower case versions of the letter, pronunciation, how to write it using a finger and the touch screen, and how to put sounds together to form words. Bandit will also teach kids helpful sight words to look out for when reading more complicated sentences.

Sarah, who formed Reading Bandit, LLC earlier this year to make this application, has big plans for Bandit. Later this week, Bandit and Sarah will be at the International Dyslexia Association’s Annual Reading, Literacy & Learning Conference in San Diego. Soon, the cartoon raccoon will be teaching children how to do math and how to spell. We here at Whole Wheat Creative can’t wait to see what Bandit does next.

Revolutionizing the irrigation industry

Their products have been installed in more than 70 countries on properties like the U.S. Capitol Building, Buckingham Palace and the College Football Hall of Fame.

Weathermatic turned to WWC to design and develop a native iOS application for iPhone and iPad that allows landscape contractors and home owners the ability to manage their irrigation systems from the palm of their hand.

Living Water International's iOS & Android App helps donors stay committed.

LWI is an implementer of participatory, community-based water solutions in developing nations. In its 20-year history, LWI has completed over 10,000 community water projects in 30 countries, which provide safe, clean water to 11.5 million people every day.

Whole Wheat Creative has worked with Living Water International for over 10 years. Beginning with design and implementation of the Living Water visual brand, which is now recognized around the world, WWC has created several generations of award-winning websites for the ministry. Living Water depends on its website to serve as its primary communication tool as well as its primary online-giving system.

The unique mobile H2O App is one of the current projects being developed by WWC for Living Water. The H20 Project is a simple but powerful campaign. Give up coffee, soda, etc. for two weeks and just drink water. Donate the money you would have spent on the drinks to help Living Water provide clean, safe water for the thirsty.

The H2O App, developed for iOS and Android, allows participants to set and track their individual campaign goals. The H2O App also gives participants the ability to establish fund-raising groups.

WWC is currently working with the talented staff at Living Water in developing the next generation of the Living Water International website and fundraising system. Both launched in 2013.

Mike Montes

Internet Marketing Strategist

Most SEA/SEO Internet marketing programs begin with a strategy, a plan and an "On" switch. Then "let it roll." Perhaps you're provided analytics at the end of each each month or each quarter and then have the opportunity to make adjustments. But, that is not what Mike does. Mike has worked with Internet marketing strategies for over eight years. He graduated at the top of his class from Florida State with a degree in Marketing and International Business and he is Google certified. He directs his smarts towards providing analysis, not analytics, of your website's search engine presence and real recommendations to achieve even greater performance. Through his day-to-day management of the WWC SmartOpt accounts, his careful attention to detail, and working closely with our clients, he ensures SmartOpt consistently achieves top Search Engine Advertising and Search Engine Optimization results on their behalf.

When not in front of a computer Mike focuses on quality time with his two children which includes: going to movies, camping, swimming and learning the finer points of fishing. Mike is also an avid collector and marketer of sports memorabilia for all sports.
