"You did a great job on the AEESP web site..."

La Toscanina Imports provides some of the best olive oil we've ever tasted. "Food and Amore" is the nickname for this site. We met the owner a while ago and were impressed with her dedication and passion in telling the incredible story of bringing this product to the United States.
Knowing Science is a new science curriculum for Pre-Kindergarten through Second grade students. Designed for the classroom or homeschooling scenarios.
We had the great fortune of being selected to develop illustrations and the eventual website for this new science curriculum that teaches science standards at the earliest levels of education. We love science and technology and we're all for better education for everyone, a win-win situation.
The site uses Drupal CMS to provide flexible content creation, editing, and management. The e-commerce engine is provided by Ubercart, which we feel is one of the most streamlined and efficient shopping cart experiences. The look and feel of the site was intended to be clean and uncluttered leaving focus directly on the subject and not the site itself.
We got them started online. Visit the site online at knowingscience.com
One of the most challenging sites to design is one where the content already exists in print. We designed the interface of this CMS site to accommodate our clients' varied line of garments to be universal while allowing the comprehensive array of sizes, styles, and colors.
We needed to create a unique look and keep the entire content area within a specific height. The color and design of the layout was intended to suggest a female shape without being literal or cliche. The target audience was dual purpose, mostly trade but also intended to create awareness among consumers.

Doctors and surgeons are probably the most important people at some point in each of our lives. Anyone that has had their life changed or saved by them would attest to that. Promoting and marketing their expertise and skills is necessary as well. The look and feel for a website is critical to its success, as we like to call it, the "visual trust" created by the color and design of a website will tend to pull the visitor inward and engage them.
Some subjects such as medicine in general, already have certain colors and other design elements associated with them and in some cases also have some rather negative connotations. In the case of a surgeon, we wanted to evoke a feeling of comfort and warmth. Staying away from the usual cool blue-green, teal, aqua color families was our motivation for the palette used here. Along with the basic color, the rest of the layout and photographic elements needed to fit within that scheme without competing for attention. We welcome all challenges in color and design whether you have an established brand identity or are a new business starting up from scratch.
One unique use of this Drupal CMS website is the patient forum. See the live site at expertspinesurgeons.com
Green Design Expo LLC is a sign of the times. For people that want to find the latest, best, and most effective solutions for green living and green building, GDE is a fantastic resource. We are definitely fans of alternative energy sources and through companies like GDE, realize how beautiful some of the green products can be. There is a great fusion of design, practicality, and consideration for the materials used.
The site is a Drupal site, of course- most of our sites now are Drupal CMS. We built in a custom region for the home page to display upcoming events that are mostly hosted in the store and occasional lectures or demonstrations in the community. We have put an E-News function in place allowing GDE staff to send out announcements easily through their site. There will be much information coming from this site so RSS feeds will serve them well as most of the staff will be blogging for the site.
The theme is actually built using actual transparent PNG files, layered to create the incredible depth of color and feeling of space. The website does achieve the primary goal, portraying the store quite accurately, as was the wish of our client. The intent was to present the company's services and products in a contemporary and intelligent light.
"Ask Suzan" and you'll get one of the most informative and valuable answers ever. College Connection adds further expansion to our portfolio and our own education. Here is a website that deals with test preparation, college application writing, and ultimately choosing a school that best suits the individual student. We have done our share of work with colleges and universities but this was a new angle.
Our assignment was to create a website using an existing brand, provide content management, and allow limited access to proprietary content. When their clients sign on, they are given materials to help organize and manage the process of creating an optimal list of possibilities based on many criteria. That used to be done in person in the form of printed materials. Now it has an online counterpart thanks to the incredible Drupal CMS functionality and some fundamental usability.
Video clips, photo galleries, and much more is now available for our clients to easily share with their clients and prospects. (note. site was retired in 2014)
Patient Wear provides innovative garments for patients with limited range of motion and other conditions requiring partial removal.
A Drupal framework supports the presentation and e-commerce allowing visitors to learn about and purchase these incredible garments.
