February Resdesigns Launched

Busy February so far! Two long over due websites were redesigned and launched. Both clients needed a way to update and post information quickly and easily. Word Press was chosen as the back end for it easy use.

NewMillInc.com (redesign) – The company needed the ability to post jobs and update content as their business continues to grow and expand.

TheChadwicksBand.com (redesign) – My original ‘guinea pig’ site. They get all the fancy testing done. I’ve wanted to re-do the site for many years, and was given the opportunity. One of the members is wanting to test his online marketing skills, but the site needed to be easy to update. They also needed the ease of updating content. With this redesign, just about all they need is at their disposal. I’ve come a long way baby (and so has the site)!
