Our goal was to renovate the existing site to more closely reflect the company brand. They needed a platform on which to broadcast relevant advice on a variety of landscaping methods. We built a custom wordpress setup that would allow the team members to be discovered and have a voice on the company blog. In the end, we designed and developed a clean, modern, responsive site that showcases the company projects and message.

From small business web design to corporate web sites, one thing they all have in common is that they are providing information to the user. So, lets take a look at some things that every site needs: Continue reading
Update: We recently updated this site with more modern technology. Previously the site was built using flash, which at the time, was the widely accepted standard for a rich experience. However, with the advent of touch screens and mobile devices, flash has since been replaced with technology and techniques that better fit the needs of today. We implemented responsive design so that the interface would work appropriately on various screen sizes and device types.
The Petco Park Stadium is well known for its baseball games throughout the year. When there isn’t a baseball game scheduled, the stadium and its many venues are available for various other events. From school proms to major concerts, the stadium is booked on a regular basis. However, the problem was that their existing site didn’t really show off all of the available options, nor did it give all of the needed information to interested parties.
Our aim was to create a clean, easy to use interface that would allow a user to quickly move through the various venues and download relevant info, view images, and pricing.
At the same time, the client wanted to have complete control over all venue info, including which areas are listed, pictures, pricing, downloads, etc.
By utilizing a full screen interface, this allowed us to easily show off the photography as well as use panels to show info. We then built a custom CMS or content management system. This gives the client access to the site, and the ability to change anything on the fly. They can upload photos, add descriptions, change the order of venues and categories, and update events.
From its launch a couple years ago, the site has been maintained by the client and has seen thousands of visitors on a regular basis. Additionally, we were awarded a top web design award shortly after its debut.

You may have noticed that we recently upgraded our own web site. This has been in the works for the last few months. It is always difficult being your own ‘client’, since the possibilities are endless. However, we ended up settling on the idea that our work is most important and we really wanted to show it off. The former site showed very little in the way of the details that go into a project. Our aim now is to give a little more insight as to the planning and forethought that go into each of our projects, whether it be a brand redesign or web site. Have an opinion? We’d love to know what you think.
The Farm House Cafe, one of my favorite clients, has had huge success from day one. We worked very closely with them from the start to help develop the brand look and feel. After the logo process, we designed the web site. A fun, interactive site that immerses the user in the rustic, french, and organic style. We shoot all of the photography for them a few times a year so that we can keep the site always feeling fresh and give the user an accurate expectation of what they’ll see when they visit. In this last year, we have made a lot of improvements to the sites overall ease of use and demographic reach.
