Design : Building Contractor
This high-end contractor sought to have an attractive site, but ease of maintenance and expandability were important too.
The information on over 80 completed projects is delivered from a database, using a CCK framework which makes it easy to
change all the listings or to modify the behavior of a specific category. Notice that each category has different descriptors.
Design : Solar Water Treatment
The Hydra was a solar powered water treatment system. Solar was used to power the pumps and excess power was used to split water into hydrogen for fuel and oxygen for medical and other uses.
So we designed the water background and the sunny colors, which made the client happy.
What We Do
We specialize not just in "design" of web pages or visual presentation schemes, but in Information Architectures (IA). We see a web site not just as a "brochure", but as the hub of your company's interaction with the rest of the World.
One basic example of IA is the comparison between a standard static HTML web site (non) architecture, and using a Content Management System (CMS), a defining feature of which is the use of a database as the repository for content. This allows the CMS script to assemble each "page" on demand. This has many benefits, and delivers almost unlimited possibilities to the web developer. Some examples:
Design : Non-Profit
The GEAR Foundation employs about 20 special needs kids through a thrift store in Franklin, TN.
Design : Organic Farming Group
This non-profit's site needed a reboot.
They wanted something simple, and that they could maintain with novice or beginner volunteers. The site includes a document management/download function, and an event calendar.
In late 2011, we installed a fairly elaborate Online Registration system for the 2012 Annual Conference. The system allows payment by PayPal or check, including groups of members/non-members/children, with earlybird rates, new or renewal memberships, and donations.
Design : Law Firm
This small law firm wanted something simple, and that they could maintain. The site included a document management/download function, and a module for collecting and displaying testimonials, but the partners wanted to start simply.
Design to Functional Site
CMG had been left high and dry by a "designer" who had left them with a Photoshopped mockup of a site- all static JPGs and no functionality. We split up the design, and applied it to a modern Joomla template:
Now, the staff can easily edit the site using the web based Joomla interface.
A Joomla Makeover
Here is a website makeover we did using Joomla, way back in 2007.
The client was the Vegetarian Society of Richmond, Virginia .
The President's team wanted more control over the site, and to not have to ask the webmaster for every little change.
They also liked the idea that multiple people could submit content to the site, subject to approval.
We help your team get "up to speed" quickly, and tap the power of Joomla!
Design: Co-op Buying Club
The Co-op wanted something fun that combined food with community...
The top banner was produced by a local graphics firm...a nice collaboration.
Tammi wanted something "hard" but with a feminine touch, and to be able to post music samples and her calendar.
Design: Green Highways
This draft was for an information and registration site for a technical conference on "greener" road building. I selected the stock photos, and put them in a rotator, which posed several punny questions related to the Conference. Construction types can be very serious, you know...
This firm wanted something that evoked beach houses, and incorporated their colors.
