Red Cape Media is a consultancy based in Andover, Massachusetts. Our design and marketing expertise is applied to the creation, facilitation and improvement of online applications and communications. We work to ensure customer experiences are consistent, engaging and simple across desktop and mobile devices.
The company was founded by Eric Kachel, a 20–year veteran of the interactive design industry. Eric has contributed leadership and hands–on expertise during the creative phase for online marketing and web application initiatives while working on projects with Amercan Student Assstance, Avigilon, Best Buy, Dassault Systemes, EnerNOC, Everest Poker, Jordan's Furniture, Pearson Education, Rue La La, SmartBargains.com and Sony.
Eric is a direct, honest and respectful communicator that values collaboration and contributions at all levels. He brings the same passion and commitment to excellence regardless of a project’s scope or budget. Before beginning any assignment, Eric seeks to establish and understand goals, target audience(s) and success metrics. Designing for others is a process that requires not only multiple iterations but also input from team members and actual users! Eric has a 'can do#' attitude and is not afraid to handle responsibilities outside the realm of creative. On many occasions he has filled the role of strategist, marketing manager, UX designer and front–end developer when called upon.
When Eric isn't trying to improve what's on screen, he can be found offline, fixing things at home. The rest of his time is spent with family and friends, enjoying the beautiful New England area and strumming on his guitar.
