CPF had a site not built in WordPress. Yeah, how do you update that?
They had a simple site with content, links, a few photos and a logo. But they couldn’t update it. Well, not without going through their web developer. But that takes time, costs money, you know the deal.
If they could just update the basics on their own, it would be paradise! Oh me, oh my, how could we achieve that?
We copied over the content and designed a reliable WordPress theme to match their old site and now they can update their own content. Now that was easy.
California People of Faith Working Against the Death Penalty
The wonderful CASA after school program had a nice site. But we made a nicer one.
It was a project where the “before” picture wasn’t really so bad at all, so it was going to take a little work to make the “after” picture better for the CASA team.
What we did was bring in Lauren Deane Evans of Good Looking Ideas. That usually does the trick. What she does is produce a “brand,” gives it an identity, a sense of self. Just take the layout of the new site: it’s clean and lean. Logo prominent and readable. A cool silhouette of kids that doesn’t take away from the logo and tagline, but still gives the site a sense of character. Isn’t that what a brand is supposed to do? It’s not too busy, it’s not too sparse, it’s, in the words of Little Red Riding Hood, just right.

CASA Stars Before
Not a bad site by any means, but could use a refresher.
CASA Stars After
With an updated header and slider, it’s now easier for staff to update.
Have loads of beautiful photos you’re ready to show off?
Together with Querido Galdo, we created a polished site that lets the artwork shine through. The Northern California Enamel Guild now has a site that they can update themselves, add more artwork and even use the events plugin for their upcoming shows and exhibits. Check out their work at enamelguild.org.
Together with the ridiculously talented Querido Galdo, we have a clean site that gets right to the point: how can Oakland residents keep Oakland clean? Through this site, they’ll be able to inform residents about how to help. They’ll be able to post to their blog, showcase events, and display photo galleries of Beautiful Oakland.
Querido created the logo and hand-crafted the buttons and info graphics for the site. It what gives it the clean-but-custom look you see at keepoaklandbeautiful.org.
The CTLA needed a site to help provide information to their members, but also manage membership, collect dues, and disseminate information. With a combination of WordPress, Gravity Forms, PayPal and MailChimp, we have a system for them in place to take care of all of that.
Different members of the organization have different administrative roles and different access levels to manage the information and the members. It’s a flexible system and we can change it on the fly to accommodate change.
It’s a professional looking site that can expand to their likings and needs.
Together with Querido Galdo, we’ve gone another smart-looking beauty to unveil. CoreAlign just opened up and it’s clean and lean. Found a slick slider that lets us put some text over in the right while the images change on the left. Blog posts and events on the front page along with the Twitter feed over in the right sidebar. With Querido’s guidance, everything has its place.
