Deazzle is a custom designed ‘Deal of the Day’ web site. Deal information is entered and scheduled using a content management system. This web site also features a business directory, coupons, WYSIWYG content editor and many other features that are continually being updated and developed.

Working with websitedesignby is a truly amazing experience. I had worked with 4 other website development groups previously for other websites or projects and I have never been as pleased with the high level and quality of service that I get from websitedesignby. Ross has design talents as well as being analytical. He not only listened and developed what we were looking for, but he presented ideas and solutions to make the website/project better. Working with websitedesignby is a pleasure and I would recommend them to all my business associates regardless of the size of project.

A Girl From Jersey

This site was custom developed for ‘A Girl From Jersey’ creations: unique coastal gifts available for wholesale to retailers.

The Problem

When Joanne initially approached me, she had a basic site that a friend had created using WordPress. She did not feel the site was a true representation of the quality of her work and did not have the level of professionalism she wanted to portray her business. It was also difficult for her to maintain as she only had a few pages of content but needed the ability to upload multiple photos into various categories and themes. The way the site was set up was not optimized for the photo gallery type setup she needed. I figured I could give her WordPress template a makeover and install a photo gallery plug-in. After researching plug-ins for galleries I did not find the perfect one I was looking for. Specifically we to be able to upload products and associate multiple categories and themes to each photo. On the front end we wanted visitors to be able to browse a category and have the photos separated and sorted by theme and when browsing a theme, separated and sorted by category. Seemed simple enough, however I never found what we were looking for.

The Solution

In thinking about the design and needing to move forward with the project I decided to build the content management system myself.

The Result

Dear Ross,

Thank you so much for all of your efforts on my new website. The process has been enjoyable from start to finish. I’ve been able to express my present and future needs to you, which you have taken and turned into a beautiful website that meets my current needs and can expand as my business does. I don’t know which I appreciate more: the website that is visible to all visitors or the part that only I see. As an artist/manufacturer, I get paid for the produts I sell, not for the number of hours I put into maintaining my website. So the easier it is for me to upload photos of new work, the sooner I can get back to painting. And the behind-the-scenes tools you have given me to maintain my site do just that. They are wonderful!!! I didn’t need to take classes, buy special software or enter into a 2-yr commitment; you’ve made updating my site as easy as sending an email with an attachment!! I look forward to using your services in the future as my business grows and will gladly recommend you. It has been a pleasure! Thank you!

Big Boy EXPO

This was a re-design of an existing web site for the Big Boy Show. In addition to a new look and feel, we selected a better domain name for branding built the site on drupal, a robust content management system for easy updates and future expansion.

Dear Ross,

Thank you for updating the Big Boy EXPO web site. I love the new layout and the ability to easily update the images and copy whenever necessary. My clients are excited about the new design for the fact that I can incorporate images of the latest exhibits featured at the show, and the Vimeo gives visitors the opportunity to view the many activities that we offer for their entertainment.
