Social Networks, How Many is Too Many?

Do you need another social media account? If you aren't sure, you should read this article, 9 Questions to Ask Before Creating Another Social Media Account. I agree with Chelsea Hunerson's first point, if your audience isn't on the network, there is no reason to give the network any of your valuable energy.

If your audience is on a social network, take a glance at questions 2 through 9. Your answers may help you decide whether to give a network any more research or table the topic and move on.

Have you decided against getting onboard a social networking account for any of the reasons listed? We have!

La Jolla Management Group - 2nd Generation

This 2nd Generation redesign was a challenging, but rewarding, project.  LaJollaMGT.com was launched as a Drupal 6 CMS in early 2012.  Overall, the site design is still very appropriate four years later, but it was looking a little outdated with a 940px width, smaller fonts, and small images.  We migrated to Drupal 7, updated widths and fonts, and themed the site for responsiveness.  In doing so we were able to provide more real estate for the gorgeous photos, which are now displayed in a fully responsive slide deck with carousel thumbnail navigation.

Continuing Life Launches

The Continuing Life, second generation site launched today.  The client pared down the content offering from a multi-paged, Wordpress site to a single smooth scroll page.  Quite often, less information presented in a bold, easily consumable format gets the point across as well - if not better.

Spicing it up

We've spiced things up on our WebMistress.com website again.  Our responsive site was designed and developed over two years ago and being the typical shoe maker - we do great things for others, but run around with worn out soles - we decided it was definitely time to promote a little more of what we can do on our own website.  We've added animation, lots of font icons, a filtered portfolio section, enhanced blog, and a few useful tags so you can see what you want to see just a little bit faster.
