Although we both design and build sites, sometimes we partner with companies that already have a development team, but need a fresh eye on their site design. United Charitable had a current website, and had been working for a while on a redesign, but felt they were spinning their wheels. We worked closely with their team to develop their messaging and their content, sourcing the right photos and editing and developing text. Our designer worked with them to develop a fresh and clean site design that updated their brand. Wireframes, prototypes, content and designs were handed off to their development team for implementation on their website.

Essential Theatre is one of our favorite non-profit theatre groups, and they’ve been a client for many years. We recently had an opportunity to redesign their website. Obviously right now we can’t highlight the annual festival, but, the site is set up for that when they are ready. Until then, we’re showing off classes, the playwriting contest, previous performances, and so forth.
Catching up on some of our sites from 2020… For Sundari Farm & Gardens, an eco-resort in Hawaii, updated branding and a new website were a great thing to get knocked out during the pandemic. The site features event management and calendar, links to bookings, blog and news features, classes & events, social media templates and branding, and an e-commerce shop.
As time progresses and your business shifts, we make changes to our websites to meet business needs. But after a while many small changes can add up to a look that isn’t as cohesive as we’d like! For long time client BrainShape, a refresh was in order. We did a quick turnaround refresh project that included a fresh look, updates to functionality, and minor fixes and improvements, and also updated the domain name. If you’re in Northern Virginia and in need of neurofeedback or hypnosis, check out the new BrainshapeVA.com!

Yes, You Can Dance!, based in the Pittsburgh, PA area, is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming lives through the power of dance, working with seniors and individuals with special needs. It’s a wonderful organization that we had worked with before on a website and branding. They were still happy with their branding, but it was time to freshen up the look of the site and add some new features.
It’s been so busy around here, which we love, but updating this site with new client work has been, shall we say… spotty!
Linda Sands (lindasands.com) : Linda has a new book coming out, so it was a perfect time to revamp her website with a fresh new look.
We had a great time creating a website for Josh Levs’s book “All In” last year. A noted author, keynote speaker, and consultant, Josh’s business needs changed, and so he asked us for some new features and functions, and a new homepage look, highlighting his speaking engagements. We kept the same branding and generally look and feel, but added videos, new features, and a brand new layout to the site.
Check out the Project in our Portfolio!

We created a website for Beth Kemper, a pelvic physical therapist in Decatur, GA, many years ago, in the days before the ubiquitousness of mobile devices. Today every website we build is mobile friendly and responsive, but not so in the ‘old days’! Beth still loved the look of her website–the design had stood the test of time– but it needed to work better for today’s devices. So we built Beth a new site, using all the most recent coding standards, but keeping her signature look and feel.
Write By The Water is the website for a yearly writers’ retreat. The web site features strong illustrations, in a ‘one-page’ style website.
