We offer turnkey solutions for any company or individual looking to establish or update their web presence. We don't just "do websites." We can assist in everything from registering your domain name to setting up your e-mail to hosting on our cloud server.

Unlike "print," a website is an interactive medium ... an interface uniquely suited to organizing and delivering information. Our goal is to always deliver a clean, intuitive interface that fits the clients' vision and functions properly across multiple platforms.
Designed as a front end informational, support, and marketing site to complement its Image Asset Management subscription service site.
The home page features an interactive Flash animation scripted in Actionscript 3 which displays a spinning 3D cube of thumbnail images. The animation reacts to vertical mouse movements.
An e-commerce site which highlights a continually changing inventory of watercolor artwork.
This site runs on X-cart, a PHP / MySQL based shopping cart which is linked to payment gateway Authorize.net.
Jocelynchengart.com is a good example of the turnkey service we offer. We registered her domain name and setup her e-mails. We host the site on our server and licensed and installed her SSL certificate. We launched the completed site after installing, configuring, and populating her shopping cart. We continue to update her site when changes are needed.
As the company has grown exponentially over the last five years, their website is on its third generation and we feel fortunate to have been with them since the very beginning.
The website presents some unique challenges. They are a fast-paced organization and keeping up with the number of requested features and updates requires efficient time management.
We have been working with KDC since they first began their practice in 2005.
Specializing in cosmetic dermatology, the website contains a plethora of medical information. The menubar was built using jQuery and there is a Flash "Before and After" photo gallery.
jQuery is used extensively throughout several areas of the site to give visitors a clean uncluttered interface when there is a lot of information to present.
Linny Morris Photography requested a combination of many features which called for Flash Actionscript to be used.
The photo gallery pages use an XML-based actionscript which dynamically links to images and captions through an editable XML file. By constructing her site this way, it became much more modular and flexible. Additions, deletions, and edits can be done on the fly by simply editing the XML file with new links to uploaded images.
This eliminated the need to open Flash every time an update was made.
Strings For Tomorrow asked for a clean and elegant layout to fit its audience for classical stringed instruments.
The home page features a jQuery slideshow with soft transitions between photos.
The gallery of images on the Instruments page dynamically checks the size of the browser window and enlarges the images accordingly. Thus, smaller windows or monitors will still view the enlarged image at full size.
Built using Joomla CMS, Cooking Fresh For You wanted the ability to update their weekly lunch and dinner menus in-house.
Joomla Content Management System was used so that the client would be able to make reqular content updates to the site themselves as needed.
PayPal was incorporated to give parents the option of paying for their child's School Lunch Program monthly orders online. The system works well and did not require the use of a full-scale shopping cart.
Hyshawaii.com was built in Wordpress with a color scheme designed to match the restaurant's masculine interior.
Though many commercial Wordpress themes are available, the theme for their site was custom-designed from scratch.
One of the unique features of the site is the Ajax script on the Wine Menu page to change only the section of the page necessary depending on the type of wine viewed ie. red, white, house.
Hy's site also allow for booking reservations online as well as an e-commerce area for the purchase of gift certificates.
Makana Academy's site was also built using a custom-designed Wordpress theme.
One of the features we scripted into this custom theme (using PHP) is the ability to display a different header image depending on the page being viewed.
The site uses YouTube streaming video throughout many of the pages and has both news and photo gallery sections which the client updates in-house.
Their shopping cart was incorporated using one of the many e-commerce plug-ins available for Wordpress.
