WordPress, Website Migrations, Coding & Marketing

Two decades of experience in web development provides clear answers to the questions of what is needed to deliver the best design, the best message and the best results from your web presence.

We ply our trade with a smaller, more focussed, and carefully-selected palette of technologies. Through PHP programming, Javascript development, MySQL database we craft custom applications.

We build high end original, yet affordable W3C compliant web sites which work PCs, Macs, tablets and phones. Our own search-engine-friendly design architecture gives your site the best chance of being found on Google. User-friendly and intuitive browsing experiences are our priority. We add in galleries, slideshows, contact forms, estimator, opt-in forms, ecommerce– the list goes on. If you want it, we’ve likely built it once already.

Web design has evolved. The ability to deliver user controlled content, to share, to make a website effective from every device is within reach. We develop versatile, powerful websites for our clients. We have worked in a number of niches were performance and flexibility are critical elements.

Kersten Orthodontics Image

Kersten Orthodontics

Dr. Gerald Kersten offers comprehensive and advanced orthodontic care for patients at his two Greater Victoria locations. His existing site didn’t match the level of professionalism reflected in his practice. He wanted a mobile-friendly website, not reliant on Flash, with a colour scheme that conveyed the safe, sterile environment that one looks for in a dental practice.

Dr. Kersten wanted a website that shared the ins

and outs of his practice to potential and current patients. He aimed to engage with patients and increase leads for the business. He also needed a site that was mobile-friendly and could be viewed on any device, and would showcase his active social media accounts.

We replaced Dr Kersten’s site with a responsive WordPress website featuring a clean, bright design, with robust security controls to limit the risk of intrusion. We used Gravity Forms to create effective contact forms to connect patients with Kersten Orthodontics.

One of our cooler features in this build was the Before & After slider (http://kerstenorthodontics.com/before-after.html); the standard one was not IE compliant. We rebuilt the plugin to make it capable in Internet Explorer.

Diving Into PJ’s Island & Subsea Retreat Image

Diving Into PJ’s Island & Subsea Retreat

PJ’s Island and Subsea Retreat is a dedicated Scuba Dive Centre. Located in breathtaking North Saanich BC, they offer Scuba Lessons, Diving Excursions, and accommodations in a beautiful Pan Abode cedar log house.

Pam and Jack, the owners, were not happy with their existing website. The previous designer used stock images showing tropical fish not native to the BC coast. Jack, a photographer, had plenty of better images

to share, but the designer would not make time to add them, nor to integrate their AirBnB listing into the website.  The couple found their existing web company to be unresponsive and were very frustrated.

The whole ordeal had left a bad taste in their mouths. They knew their business needed and deserved better, and they wanted a fresh start – so they contacted us. Within weeks they had a brand new site which included everything they had asked for and more.
