Danville Community Band Website

The Danville Community Band is the largest community band in the East Bay, boasting 85-members and growing. They’ve been performing since 2001 and their previous HTML/CSS website did not do them justice.

The site also needed to afford users a way to listen the Band, make donations easily and inform users about upcoming performances.

Halteres Associates Website

Halteres Associates website

Halteres Associates is a leading bioscience consultancy comprised of more than 150 professionals with extensive experience in a broad spectrum of areas of expertise, including the development and commercialization of diagnostics, medical devices, therapeutics, research reagents and bioscience tools.

Halteres engaged us not only to update the look and feel of their corporate website, which was several years old, but more importantly to help them fix a critical messaging problem; site visitors were not grasping the broad scope of services that Halteres provides. This failure to connect with their key audience was costing them lost business opportunities.

We suggested changes in site architecture and the re-thinking of details as minute as the naming of pages and headers to help site visitors understand Halteres’ mission and scope and seamlessly direct visitors to key information.

Aurora School Website

Aurora School web site

The Aurora School mission is to develop individuals who are academically excellent, socially compassionate, and emotionally secure. When Aurora approached us, their website had problems with design, maintenance, usability and messaging.

The site contained a lot of wonderful information that was too hard to find. On the administrative side, maintaining site content was expensive and slow. A new website was needed to reflect both the socially compassionate nature of the school and its rich academic excellence.

  • Reorganized and streamlined information flow. The web site has increased parent interaction, creating a useful tool and resource.
  • Simplified website maintenance with a WordPress content management system to enable staff to make content updates.
  • In Phase 2 we added an extensive application form including “save and finish later” functionality and context-sensitive form fields that only appear if they are relevant to the applicant.
  • Custom event tool. One data entry updates “Happenings” page and generates three upcoming events on home page.
  • Customizable feature buttons. Staff can change throughout year to create relevant shortcuts (fundraising drive, application season, camp signups)
