We really love web design and creating blog-sites (as I call them). We especially like to do a complete and utter re-design/re-brand/re-think of an old, tired website.
If you’re thinking of updating your web design or launching a brand new website, you should contact us to get a complimentary web design quote. Don’t worry, we are nice and not pushy and have been doing web design for a long, long time (in Internet years).
Here are some recent examples of websites we’ve designed or re-designed:
This one was a biggie, size-wise, with TONS of functionality. I love how clean and simple it is, and the flat circles in the bright colors. Really fun to design and program.
Rose Marie is an up-and-coming author with a really unique twist on life. She is funny and truthful and she’ll make you think. And laugh. And then think some more. I think this web design is made up of fresh and vibrant colors that match her approach to life perfectly.
Reboot The Magic
I recently got into purple. Purple everything. This web design was the result (one of many things I have recently ‘painted’ purple!).
There is nothing I like better than working with someone who is dedicated to helping others, and Stephany Smathers of Pink Regalia fits that description the way her bras fit her clients! I LOVED working on this pretty pink website, and if you get a chance pop into her store in Waynesville, North Carolina and try on some of the lovely feminine lingerie she carries.
Mechell Turner is a truly gifted herbalist, and it was my pleasure to create a pretty, fresh web design for her with a great store so that she can easily sell all her herbal tinctures and wonderful natural remedies. Be sure to stop by her store if ever you are in Peachland, North Carolina.
This is our other website and I like to keep it fresh-looking and up-up-to-date (okay – it’s been a few months now – and this one needs – something):
This is an really cool organization and I’m proud to have had a hand in the creation of their website.
Dry Master Carpet Care in Waynesville, NC
A really nice couple with five awesome kids owns this company. They deserved a great web design that brings them lots of carpet cleaning leads. They moved to the Western North Carolina mountains not long ago and they are building an awesome reputation with the help of a user-friendly website.
Here’s a pretty website for a pretty (and very organized) lady. Alia organizes homes and offices in the Houston, Texas area and I’m sure they are very grateful. Wish she lived near me! She has her own style and knows what she wants. I love the vibrant colors of this site.
Keppel Design, Asheville NC
Peter is a designer / builder in the Asheville, NC area who offers calm, caring craftsmanship, and he wanted his website to reflect that. Clean lines, simple message, nothing fussy. I think I learned something about calm, caring craftsmanship from Peter and I love the web design we came up with.
Your Organizing Diva
Wow – this web design really tells you what she does and how well she does it – doesn’t it? Debbie Schults’ new website for her businesses Your Organizing Diva is clean, uncluttered and, yes, organized.
Debbie gave me good direction and together we came up with a site that is so easy to find and to navigate – she got a lead for a paying client in Asheville, NC who found her website through Google before it was even finished! Now THAT’S a web design that works and pays its own way!
Debbie rocks, and if you are in the Western North Carolina area you should give her a call to get help with organizing, event planning, book keeping – you name it, she’ll keep you sane!
Carolina Timber Components is a subsidiary of Blue Ridge Post and Beam. CTC (as we affectionately call them) are all about fine quality timber components – pergolas, porticos, and pretty pieces of fine craftsmanship on beautiful homes. This web design is what we came up with to show off the high-end rustic elegance of what they do.
Laura Sherman, The Friendly Ghost Writer
This adorably wild web design was for Laura Sherman who is a successful author and ghost writer. She wanted something different that represented her loves and interests. She got it and her fans are digging it.
Just this morning Laura sent us a comment that she received from a fan on Twitter: “I don’t know your inspiration for your web design, but I *love* it! :-)” Blush!
Clene Start Carpet Cleaning
We hadn’t created a carpet cleaning company’s web design before this one, and this project presented a challenge. These clients needed help overcoming the (deliberate) miss-spelling of the word ‘Clene’ in their business name. We came up with a social media strategy resulting in a campaign to attract dog lovers. After all, there are LOTS of people who own dogs AND carpets in the North Georgia area! All we had to do was create a great blog – a doggy blog if you will – and then build a Facebook and Twitter and blogging campaign that would attract the attention of their target market. As dog lovers themselves, these clients were delighted to get into the swing of blogging, tweeting and Facebooking like mad, and also happily supplied the adorable puppy photos that adorn the header of their new blog. Ahhhh – we love our job!
Clyde Auto Exchange
This is a website we designed for our local car dealer in Clyde, North Carolina, or WNC as we like to say around here, which means Western North Carolina. Clyde Auto sells quality used cars to families (like ours) and serves the Haywood County area, including Clyde, Canton, Waynesville, Maggie Valley, and some other towns near here like Sylva, Franklin and Bryson City. Web design for small businesses is a pleasure, because they are so appreciative when we show them how to update and control their own website. As Roy Greene, the owner of Clyde Auto said this morning, “Mandy, you make updating my website a piece of cake.” It made his day, and when Roy’s brother Bruce gave me a delicious oatmeal cookie it made my day too.
This was a redesign of a wonderful – but slightly dated-looking – website for a much-loved women’s magazine in Western North Carolina:
What a difference — client and advertisers alike ADORE this fresh and sexy web design!
84 Hickory Drive, Weaverville, NC
SOLD! Oh, please tell your friends about this house! OMG – what an amazing home and lucky me, I got to look at gorgeous photos of this stunning mountain home for hours at a time! Built with love, care, and meticulous attention to detail, this custom craftsman home is ready to welcome a new family into its life!
Balsam Spa, Waynesville, NC
Our challenge with this web design was that it had to be up in a hurry – the spa was having a grand opening in a few days and the media and all their friends and clients were going to be there. Talk about pressure! I let Cristy & Brooke focus on finishing up the decor and preparations for the big day, and I forged ahead with the website for their beautiful new spa. Fast? Yes. Stylish and classy? Absolutely!
I just love the colors that Waynesville, NC acupuncturist Donna Combs chose for her website – the perfect mix of professional (of course) but also slightly playful (just like Donna). I had so much fun with this one!
Exterior Lighting Asheville, NC
Here is an example of a “double website redesign.” Let me explain. When Jay first came to me he was practically in tears over his website – with good reason. When I saw how UGLY this thing was, I nearly wept too:
What was even sadder was that Jay has spent all his money on the clowns who had turned in this piece of “go-suh” (that’s Chinese for “crap”). So with a teeny budget we got in there and spiffed it up nicely:
Jay was happy with this – but I wasn’t and I told him so. “There’s more to be had, Jay,” I said. “This was a band-aid solution – but you know me – I want the real thing for you. Come back when you have a budget.” So about a year later, I got a call. “Mandy, this is Jay Maya.” I was so happy to hear from him, because Jay is a good guy and his company, A1 Illuminations provides some of the most wonderful residential and commercial exterior lighting I have ever seen. He is an artist, and so am I – we appreciate each other. This is what Jay has today, and he LOVES, LOVES, LOVES it:
Send Out Cards Missouri
A darling blog for a dedicated and hard-working SendOutCards enthusiast. Go for it, Brenda!
What a fun website to do for a fun and creative lady! We had a blast creating the “wall-paper” for this website.
Butch is a manly man. You can tell that by his name. And his photo. And for a manly man you need a manly website. He was very happy with this one. (Of course, despite his name, Butch is really a teddy bear. And a very talented metal artist.) Visit Butch’s welding art gallery.
Personal Blog Design
This is my personal blog. I’m big into color and fru-fru. That’s me.
Mentored by an Eagle
This training course site was a lot of fun to do simple because Wayne and I have done a lot of training course development and we really enjoy the process of helping course participants successfully complete their targets by making sure that the course materials are easy to follow.
Tuckasiegee River Mountain Lodge, Whittier, NC
Like this one, for example. You really have to click on the picture and just go look for yourself – the Flash header features some amazing photos of the Western North Carolina mountains and this gorgeous mountain-top lodge. This was a lot of fun to do, because we got to go and stay there with Nancy and the gang and we had a great time!
