Another reason why having a flash site may not be the best for your product .. Google’s new hover-for-web-preview will not be scanning flash websites for their new image preview.Read More
Kathy is a friend of ours from our wedding photography business, and she makes beautiful vintage inspired bridal accessories. Up until now, she just had an Etsy store to display her products on, but we created a clean and light website with a large slider that will display her featured products in a large prominent way!
We recently finished up a custom WordPress design for David Walter, a New York based fine art and concept photographer. He wanted to keep the same concept of lightbox galleries as his old HTMl site had, but make it easier to update and the ability to be more interactive in the future. This WordPress build worked out quite well!Read More
There are many new features in Joomla 1.6 that make it a really nice option for a content management system. Here’s our quick review of a few things I noticed while testing that will definitely be useful.
1. Access Control. This is the big one, of course. In this new release, you can fine tune what your viewers see, what your administrators can see/edit, etc. There are user groups that can be created, and then each menu item, category, article, etc can be set to be viewed by one of these user groups. You can assign users to multiple user groups in the event they need to have access to several different areas.Read More
Today we’re unrolling out new administration templates for our Joomla site users – you won’t have any trouble finding the things you’re used to finding in the same places. It’s a cleaned up and brightened look and feel with a little bit of CSS3 styling thrown in here and there. Let us know what you think of it! By tomorrow we should have everyone upgraded and you’ll be able to log into your site backend and take it for a test.
The newest release of Joomla 1.6 has just come out with some really cool new features built in. We’ll be reviewing it shortly and posting our thoughts here on the blog!
Merry Christmas from Brent & Anna and the rest of our design team! We hope that wherever you are spending this holiday, you’re in the company of family and those you love! Enjoy this little video we madeRead More
We recently finished a website redesign and content management system integration for Windsor Point, a retirement community based in Fuquay Varina, NC.
Windsor Point wanted a new look that would bring their look and branding up to date. They wanted a mix of professionalism blended with a feeling of care and emotion that showed the level of care they provide at their continuing care retirement community.
Their new site allows them to post photo galleries, frequent blog posts, and keep their community calendar updated.Read More
Christ Community Church in Brockport, New York approached us a few months ago about some new features they wanted to incorporate into their website. They were already an existing client of ours, and had a Joomla website system built on a previous version, but they wanted to upgrade to the newest version as well as include some new features on their site like a better sermon management system, calendars that updated automatically, upcoming events featured more prominently and larger graphics on the front page.Read More
For years, flash websites have been a pet peeve of mine. Every time I’d stumble across another one, my insides would groan. The “Loading” text flashes onto my screen, and even with high speed internet, it takes a little while to get everything loading. Then, the music starts playing. Ugh. With the photography side of our business, we see a LOT of other photographers using flash for their websites. Again, my insides churn each time I see it. You might wonder, why? What’s wrong with flash? Isn’t that the best way to display interactive media?Read More
When we contracted the design of Back In Action’s new website last year, we were excited because they were our first project which had come as a direct result of a search engine conversion. Most of our website design comes from word of mouth – satisfied customers referring us to other people they know. We were pleased that the owner of Back In Action, Kristal Nelson, was that impressed with our work that she trusted us to handle their first venture into the internet world with their business. They opted to go with a custom content management system that will allow them to make updates to their site and blog about things that are going on in the clinic or what various team members are doing.Read More
