2018 Website Recap: Beautifying the Internet One Website at a Time
Now that the new year is here, we’ve closed the chapter on 2018 and are ready to begin the new chapter of 2019. But first, we’re looking back at all the glorious moments of 2018, in particular, the websites launched that slowly added to the beauty of the Internet.
Think of it this way: have you ever walked down the street of a city that had so much potential to look great but was hindered by some poorly designed buildings? Perhaps the layouts needed reworking and the walls needed some color. That’s how we see the Internet – a space where websites can live cohesively, function seamlessly, and look fabulous. We let our creative juices flow and working closely with our clients, brought their visions to digital life.
Check out some highlights of website launches from 2018:
Balloons Above the Valley: For 40+ years, this company has been offering balloon rides to all those seeking a new view of Napa Valley. It was time to breathe some life into their digital presence with a new website featuring hot air balloon animations and a completely customized booking system that allows for easy online bookings.
Butter Cream Bakery & Diner: Another staple of the valley since the 1940’s. Beloved bakery and diner needed a website that listed their menu items and reflected their nostalgia for the past including recipes that lasted the test of time. We highlighted their history but brought them into the present with a modern site where users can see what’s offered.
Marlene Design + Co.: This one won a WMA Web Design Award and we couldn’t be prouder. Marlene started her interior design business recently and needed her website to reflect a timeless elegance. Clean lines and simplicity in website design made this one a standout.
St. Helena Real Estate: Another award winner – the WMA Web Design Award for Best Real Estate Website of 2018. After a lot of complex customization and design detail, we launched St Helena Real Estate with pride and excitement.
Strala Vineyards: A winery with major aesthetic – just look at that Instagram profile. We developed a website that would capture the beauty and taste of Strala Vineyards. Dreamlike design and soft colors define the delicate nature of this wine.
Downtown Joe’s Brewery & Restaurant: Where local’s hangout and visitors come to feel like a local. That’s Downtown joe’s and our goal with their new website was to offer users the chance to feel just how loved this place is. We chose to showcase their stunning craft beer graphics, highlight their tasty eats, and promote their weekly events all via a responsive website.
Mentis: Napa’s Center for mental Health Services deserved a proper website to promote their incredible work in the community. We created a website both in English and Spanish. Users can now easily find important information and Mentis can better promote their services.
Napa Valley Orthopaedic Group: These highly-respected doctors needed a website that represented their cutting edge work. We built a site that highlighted their services, provided info on each doctor, and worked seamlessly with search engines.
Napa Valley Plastic Surgery, Dr. McClure: Dr. William McClure is not only the North bay’s leading Plastic Surgeon, but he’s also a humanitarian that has volunteered on over 85 surgical mission trips helping children and teaching doctors. His goal: a new website that would attract more business for his practice, allowing him to provide stunning results for local patients as well as fund his mission trips all over the world. His new website now showcases his services and features galleries of his incredible work.
Kenneth Raymond Design: Beautiful work demands a beautiful website. Kenneth Raymond Design is an interior design company that excels in creating stunning spaces. So we chose to make a website that would reflect just that.
These are just a few of the many sites we launched in the past year. New technology has allowed us to create websites that represent a client’s brand better than ever before. We’ve enjoyed leveraging the power of the Internet to push businesses forward and foster customer relationships in a positive manner. We look forward to another year of beautifying the Internet, one website at a time.
