Pelican Wire Company, Inc., located in Naples Florida, manufactures all types of wire from standard resistance to specialty applications. This custom website was designed to reflect the professionalism, technical capabilities and wealth of knowledge offered at the Pelican Wire. Along with the website, we provide training on the CMS (built on the WordPress platform) and ongoing support.

His knowledge of web technologies guided us to an excellent technical solution that allows us to keep control over our web content. Ross provided excellent design insight through research of competitive sites and understanding the nuances of modern web design. In addition, Ross spent many hours collaborating with our ERP developer, web hosting services, and our IT support organization making the entire web development process a seamless experience.

Patrick Higgins came to us looking for a ‘bespoke’ design for TropicBird Ecotours, a sailing charter specializing in a personalized experience for Naples area visitors wanting to explore the rare beauty of the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge and Rookery National Estuarine Research Reserve under sail.

We took some inspiration from the original 2005 addesignconcepts.com design, nature photography from our own collection and other local sources. WordPress was used as a CMS and a custom theme was developed according to the design specifications. Fortunately TropicBird Ecotours had it’s own wealth of high quality photos and well written content that made the creation of this website a pleasurable and inspiring endeavor.

In a addition to the TropicBird Ecotours website we also set up and linked a Facebook fan page. Here is what Mr. Higgins testimonial following the launch of his site:

I choose Ross for my website design because it was clear from the outstart that he was completely up to date on electronic media, he understood the brief, would be sensitive to my message and would be able to guide me on appropriate content. He delivered my site on time and on cost with the minimum of revisions and was very responsive throughout the process. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

When K is for Kids® Foundation approached us to assist with a redesign of their existing web site, we were more than happy to reorganize their content and develop a custom WordPress template that would allow them to continue to grow.

The template redesign was only the first part of an ongoing relationship that websitedesignby.com continues to provide support and maintenance as K is for Kids® Foundation continues to evolve and grow in its mission of helping promote reading for children everywhere.

Here is a letter from founder Karen Clawson:

Dear Ross,

Thank you for joining our Foundation’s “reservoir of bright minds” by serving as a member of our K is for Kids® Advisory Council and donating your valuable time and skills supporting our cause.

We also appreciate your role as webmaster, although that title certainly does not due you justice. Indeed, our organization feels fortunate to have found someone with your formidable talents: As a website designer in tune with current trends who easily combines the technical skills and know-how of a computer programmer, your ability to apply creative vision is only topped by your business skills to deliver results quickly and efficiently. We appreciate how you took our content and graphics and made them better; how you adeptly reconstructed our website then steered us through a seamless transition to a “new” launch; how you met and then surpassed our goals; and most of all, how you succeeded in building KisforKids.org into a powerful communicator of our cause as well as an engaging community for others to visit.

In short time, Ross, you have filled a critical role in the advancement of our goals to promote children’s literacy and leadership by creating a website that reflects the spirit of our philanthropy and volunteerism while focusing on those we benefit. On behalf of the thousands of children who have been given more books to read and more opportunities to lead, we give you our deepest gratitude.

Very truly yours,

Karen D. Clawson
Founder & Executive Director
