Note From Founder Wendy Nog:  We are so proud of our clients and their ability to manage the sites that we have built for them.  Some of our clients are still running sites that were hand-coded in HTML!  Those sites are still beautiful.  As “do-it-yourself”ers” ourselves, our goal is always to build a system that our clients can manage on their own.  We are technically trained with a strong aesthetic bend, and love turning a technically complex system into a beautiful interface.

Samuel E. Cole | Author

The Story:

“I don’t know if it’s just the coincidence of raw talent or whether you’ve actually mastered the techniques of modernists like Elizabeth Bishop’s use of worldly detail (“the roundabout crossroads gone dark,” “a floss pick you tossed aside and forgot”) and Robert Lowell’s and John Berryman’s confessional style. You’ve got Larkin matched on metaphor. All of it is way too good for the local spoken word circuit.”  With reviews like these, rising author Samuel E. Cole needed a website to promote and sell his current collection of poems, “Bereft And The Same Sex Heart” and his upcoming work “Bloodword”.  We used the beautiful Squarespace platform for Sam.

Freda Banks | Wedding Photography

The Story:

This incredible photographer needed an updated look to display her gorgeous imagery.  Squarespace provided the perfect platform for her.  As you can see when you visit her site, even the worn wooden boards at your feet can be stunning from behind the lens of a talented photographer!

Adam Hirsch | Personal Training

The Story:

Few people have had the astonishing healing impact on the human body as Adam Hirsch.  Not only is he a personal trainer, but he also specializes in muscle activation techniques and mind/body nerve connection rewriting that can only be experienced to believe in its transformative impact.  Adam works out of a gym in Corte Madera, CA, and while he is featured on the gym’s site, he wanted to have his own presence.  We used photographs taken by one of his clients and Squarespace to create an online place for him to connect with an online audience.

The Story:

Rupak Nag did not have a website, and needed an online presence for his Patent services.  We created a site that reflects the highly technical nature of his work, which focuses on cutting-edge technology.  His clients are some of the top technology clients in the Bay Area, and his site needed to reflect that.  We created a WordPress site for him that is simple and to the point.

Powerplant Park | Richmond, CA

The Story:

Look a little closer…yes, those are marijuana leaves!  This start-up is building a state-of-the-art medical marijuana greenhouse farm on the shores of the San Francisco Bay.  They wanted a logo that felt like a National Park, and a website that would function as a center for the community that is sure to “grow” up around Powerplant Park.  This site is still in development.

Ariana Bundy | Persian Chef

The Story:

Internationally Renowned Persian/Iranian Chef Ariana Bundy is wildly popular on Social Media, has a National Geographic cooking show, and two cookbooks.  One of her videos might have 100,000 views.  As she begins to look ahead to “What’s Next”, she sees selling her products online, and perhaps even a restaurant.  This meant that she needs to have a home online.  This website serves several purposes.  One is to provide a location for all of the beautiful imagery of Iran and Ariana’s foods.  The second is to begin to grow her social media stats which are important to potential partners, and third is to have a platform where she can sell products.  Have you ever seen saffron fields?  You will if you spend some time watching her gorgeous videos.  Her recipes include pomegranate, rose petals and gold.  How much more luxurious can cooking get?

The Center for Swedenborgian Studies

The Story:

The center got a new name, and needed a new website to reflect its new image.  Their previous site was typical of sites built in the early part of 2000’s, and needed a more modern look.  Because they wanted to create a sense of place, we were able to take advantage of using beautiful imagery on their site.  We created a WordPress site, and after a bit of training, the client wrote and imported much of the content on their own.  We love to have our clients help with uploading content, because it helps them get used to working within the WordPress platform before the site is live.

Design Build Specialists

The Story:

Mark Labordette loves his work and loves his clients.  He wanted a way to quickly put up information about his ongoing projects so that he could engage with his clients.  This site reflects his outgoing personality, and his wealth of knowledge.  He now can send in videos from the field, and have them posted onto his site.  We built a WordPress site that uses content categories extensively in order to place and replace content throughout the site.

Our State Of Peace | World

The Story:

Our client needed a beautiful presentation for a huge collection of interviews from around the world about peace.  The website needs to also serve as an interactive piece for museums and events.  We love taking websites beyond the boundaries of tradition, and this gave us an opportunity to do just that.

The Foresight Institute

The Story:

We are the client’s third development team working on this project, and we are determined to complete it.  We listen carefully to our clients, and carefully move through the necessary steps so that there is a complete deliverable at every milestone, and every dollar is well spent.  This is a huge site that was first built in 1996, and it is thrilling to see the old code, reminding us of how thrilling it was in those early days.  We hope to have something to show in April so stay tuned!  In the mean-time, you can take a look at their current site to get the “before”
