Practice safe design: Use a concept
Good ideas turn into good designs fairly quickly. If you catch yourself fiddling too much with colors, borders and treatments to bring a design together, chances are the problem lies somewhere deeper
- Ryan Singer
Web Design Basics
Web design uses all the same elements as print design. You need to explore the space and layout, handle fonts and colors, and put it all together in a format that puts your message across. These resources will help you learn Web design whether you are already a professional Web developer or just getting started in the Web arena.
Elements of Good Design
Good Web design is the same as good design. If you understand the elements that make up good design, you’ll have a Web page that works well. These elements of good design apply whether you are writing a Web page, a business card, or a t-shirt and once you understand them you’ll have the skills to be a great designer.
Web Layout Basics
When people think of Web design often what they mean is the layout. Layout is the organization of elements on a Web page. First you need to start with basic design principles. Once you understand them, you can move through how to place elements on your Web page. Our team will assist you in designing for “Form & Function”
Customer Managed Site – CMS
When you are looking to create a website, you will probably try some of the content management systems or commonly called CMS. Two of the most popular among them are WordPress and Joomla. Over the years we have found most clients do not need a fully customized CMS platform coded to their every need. 99% of you will be very pleased with a templated system from either Joomla or Word Press. There are literally hundreds of each to choose from with varying degrees of difficulty in client managed features.

Social Media And YOU
“In the long history of humankind those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.”
~ Charles Darwin
We have seen it many times, a board meeting with one or two members trying to convince the others to start using Twitter or Facebook to help promote their services. There is always the one or two “older” members who claim to have been doing “face-to-face” or over the phone communication their entire career with just fine results.Begrudgingly a partial use of Social Media is adopted and undertaken by one person, with very good odds of having an “I told you so” coming their way at the next team meeting. Success was not realized due to the old trap of “If you build it, they will come” This could be avoided with two fixes: 1. Integrating A universal online strategy into the global communications plan of the organization. 2. Collaborative support with time and budget by ALL members of the team. It’s at this point most organizations need what we call a Social Media Rescue We will meet with your organization to refocus your overall communications approach, initiate appropriate online tactics and measure the outcomes. Contact us today if your organization needs a Social Media Rescue firstname.lastname@example.org (By the way…the fastest growing demographic to use online communication and Social Media is the Older guys…free table talk advice for your next meeting!)

Understand your tools- Understand your Audience- Understand your limitations
Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Google+, … do YOU know how and When to use them? It is critical to Social Media Success to plan which tools you will use where and when. Fortunately we do and will demonstrate this to your team.
WHO you are reaching out to , engaging in a conversation with someone you don’t know is like standing up in the mall and shouting your message. Its not as productive as targeting the people that would have an interest in your statements.
Bottom line…Strategy was invented for Social Media Management.
