Breaking down technology barriers

In featured,web by Haley Wilkins / May 6, 2011 / 0 Comments

NAMI Wood County OhioWe worked with NAMI Wood County to create a site that accomplished a number of goals: enhanced their brand, reach out to more individuals, provide easy to find information for both the public and volunteers. But most importantly, provide accessible information for those with disabilities.

There are a lot of technology barriers for the disabled. Did you know that if you are a Federal agency you are by law required to have a Section 508 compliant site? Even with this 1998 amendment it has yet to become a truly enforced standard – leaving the disabled without fair access to information.

Private web sites not receiving federal funds do not need to comply to Section 508, however it is a good industry practice and a voluntary standard called W3C was created for the lack of enforcement.

NAMI Wood County’s website is both Section 508 and W3C Compliant. Additional features include newsletter integration, blog, social networking, and shopping cart.

Client Visit

In web by Haley Wilkins / January 11, 2011 / 0 Comments

I recently finally got to meet a longtime client of ours from Kissimmee, Florida. They have an incredible vacation home for DisneyWorld vacationers called Lucky Emerald located in Emerald Island. My team and I have been lucky enough to help them with their web presence complete with a flash slideshow and client maintained calendar integration. All of our clients are referred to us from word of mouth and with that, we often don’t get the chance to meet all of our clients face to face very often.

It was great to finally meet with you Tamara, and meeting your family. Ava is a doll!

Lucky Emerald is a vacation home close to DisneyWorld in Florida. Accommodations include kitchen, multiple bedrooms, pool, and more. Visit their website at luckyemerald.com for more information.

Cocktails and Couture

The past few months have been incredibly rewarding for me. I am so fortunate to have THE BEST clients in the world.

V Couture grand opening

Valentine and Elizabeth Ononye – An incredible moment for an incredible couple.

Recently, I attended V Couture’s grand opening, Cocktails and Couture. (Channel 13 coverage with Lissa Guyton) Months of work for my team in branding materials for their high class Perrysburg retail store was nothing compared to the years of dedication, heart, and strong path of dedication it took Valentine and Elizabeth to get to this point. And this is just the beginning. Great success comes to great people like them.
