The San Francisco Sentinel needed a bit of liveliness. We got them that. The site was one of those old text-based, 3-column functional sites that held loads of content and was very readable, but didn't really have any character. Now it has character galore. Together with the ever-popular Lauren Deane Evans of Good Looking Ideas, we [...]

What do you get with a hip product, great photography, and a clean layout? This site could have been a few snapshots and a PayPal button. But they hired a professional photographer, an SEO pro, and a WOO Canvas Expert and this site is a head-turning e-commerce beauty. The design team liked the layout of [...]
