Cafe 345

In Websites by henry

We built this site for a client who allowed us full creative control. We took photos of the shop’s beautiful chalkboard menus, and used them to create an engaging, animated intro slideshow. The site is a fairly simple one-page design that still manages to convey a sense of the atmosphere and style the cafe is known for. It was built atop a popular WordPress theme for restaurants.

Townhouse Motel

In Websites by henry

This site helped the client grow from half-full parking lots to early “No Vacancy” signs within a few months. The client was so happy, we have never had to bill them; the checks always arrive early, with hand-written “thank you” notes. The site features custom interior and exterior photography, full-API integration with a third-party booking engine, an advanced Google Maps widget, spam-protected contact form, and integrated review widgets from the top motel rating sites out there. It was built on an understated WordPress theme, with CSS customizations to reflect the hotel’s brand identity.

Festive Glow Holiday Lighting

In Websites by henry

This site promotes a small company in Idaho that installs custom holiday lighting, and stores it during the off-season. It features a classic one-page design, javascript snowflake effect, spam-protected contact form, staff bios, a gallery of work examples, and a custom computer illustration we made that depicts holiday elves installing Christmas lights on a gingerbread house. Each season, the contact form generates dozens and dozens of leads for the company.

Belinda Bell Art

In Websites by henry

We first launched this art portfolio site in 2011. Cost was a factor, so we used the excellent GalleryScript javascript library to build a simple collection of static HTML pages. As time went on, the artist achieved more commercial success, and she wanted a platform she could update herself. After a few false starts with Joomla, we got the formula right with WordPress and a beautifully simple theme developed by Minimal. Since then, Belinda has been able to photograph and upload new work, and even add new gallery sections with very little help, despite the challenges of a slow Internet connection.
