For Little Dogs

screenshot littledogsPat Walz, a long-time friend of the family, started a new pet boutique recently and needed a web presence. We worked with Kristina Sippel on a logo and banner graphics, and came up with a really cute site that effectively conveys the character of her store.

The platform is Joomla 2.5.x using a template from RocketTheme as the basis for our design.

Tri-County Humane Society

screenshot tchsA friend who volunteers at the Humane Society in St. Cloud mentioned that they needed help with their website. The office manager was getting desperate and was going to resort to building a new site from scratch. I noticed that they had an old Joomla site, and I offered to bring it up to date for them and give it a fresh look.

I uninstalled a bunch of unused features and then began a major upgrade to the Joomla core. The result was a vastly simplified site structure which retained all the useful features. We later added a storefront extension, and I've since done a second Joomla core update to bring the site to current standards.

One interesting thing about this site is that it gets about 800 visits per day from people in the area. It's certainly rewarding to know our work is useful to so many. Thanks to my colleague Clara Navin for help with the feature slider graphics.

ADS Designs

We opted for a Joomla site with a theme that quickly conveys the nature of Tony's business. A scrolling feature on the home page displays some of his projects, and a simple editor interface lets him update the site as he sees fit.

Phil Little Racing

We put together a great Joomla site with intuitive navigation and some really nice photo features. Virtually every image in the site is clickable, which results in an elegant zooming popup. Keyboard navigation allows easy movement through galleries.

Kloster Commercial Services

Kloster Commercial Services screenshotTwo friends approached me about updating their company's corportate site. They wanted to keep the general feel of their current site but bring in a more modern, cohesive look with a dynamic feature panel and updated content. They also wanted to incorporate several appraisal service forms.

Joomla was selected as the foundation of this site, with a great theme by RocketTheme as a starting point. The result is an elegant, fresh site that the company can edit easily.
