New website for a historic hotel that has been in operation for over 100 years. What a hotel. In South Haven, this hotel is famous for its longevity and it is just a really fun place. Small, very quaint, so many old touches in it. New owners, a young couple that has really put sweat equity into this old building and done an amazing job in the short time they have been working on it. I feel very lucky to be working with them.
A great new .org for South Haven. The Theatre Series, created by SHOUT, brings theater from around the country, many of them one person shows, back home. Already, they have brought some groundbreaking performances to town. Most recently during the pandemic, a wonderful one woman show based on Frida Kahlo. A play put on in conjunction with the South Haven Center for the Arts. All involved pivoted quickly to salvage this performance canceled due to COVID-19, and put on the most incredible Zoom Show I have seen yet.
Events Photography: Corporate events and communications. John is an old friend from college and he’s always been a very talented photographer. This one page website is a good start to showcase his corporate work. Simple, clean site with stunning photography.
New client, new website, but the project is steeped in antiquity. Established in 1883 as a book club, the Scott Club is a fascinating organization in South Haven. Incredible building built in 1893. “Teas” are visually enhanced (big screen TV, computer) talks by interesting members on subjects they have knowledge about. Their perennial book club – since 1883. Great experience working with these folks. I’m very happy to be associated with the Scott Club.
Brand New website Upgrade for Miller Curber dot com. With the addition of detailed drawings of machines and parts comes a new website update incorporating a new parts finder, and Google language translation, which means more search engine friendly as well. I have been working with Miller Curber since it changed from Miller Spreader, new name and new ownership, in 2011.
Miller Curber is a manufacturer of commercial curb builders for making concrete and asphalt curbs on streets and walkways and around landscaping. They are located in Youngstown, Ohio and are very nice people to work with. They also make hand tools for the same purpose and have been serving the construction industry for over fifty years.
New website redesign for current clients. The South Haven Performance Series has had a nice website since its inception in 2009. This is such a wonderful non-profit organization in South Haven. They bring lovely music to the town and put on a beautiful holiday concert as well. They wanted their site to be mobile-friendly and not have to update it themselves anymore, but have the option if they became so inclined in the future through the CMS.
New website for a new client, Advance Plating, a family owned business since 1963. They just moved to a new facility and upgraded their plating processes. The website tells their story and gives them a nice updated web presence. Great folks to work with and they are very busy so updating their site is a challenge, but I think it turned out great.
New website upgrade for an existing client and her family business. Brenda and Marc have been storing and servicing those Lake Michigan dream boats for many years. Their existing website was not mobile-friendly, though very nice, and needed to be updated. We added a content management system and a new look to their website, creating a straight forward way to find pricing and services that can be more easily updated. Nice folks to work with.
New website for a new client, Diane, a college admissions consultant. Simple website to explain her approach which is very sensitive to the student, encouraging realistic goals directed by personal strengths. It seems she really gets in there and dukes it out along with the applicant. Helping with everything like resume, Common Application essays (personal statement & meaningful activity essay) and all other college-specific supplementary essays. I think the site really delves into what Diane does for her clients in a clean, minimalist style.
Brand new website for the elusive SHOUT, a non-profit organization that works behind-the-scenes in South Haven to beautify, to educate and entertain, to make this harbor town even better. I enjoyed making this website very much. Lots of great pictures and information about South Haven that I did not know. Great people to work with, they give a lot of their time and energy to this organization and have a lot of fun doing it.
