Bigger, bolder, and better. Website Design.

We're excited to launch our new website. It took us about two weeks to come up with a new design and implement everything. As you can tell it's pretty different than our last version. Gone are the cutesy graphics and hand-drawn icons. Those were nice, but we wanted a more professional looking site. We now have wide full-screen photos and text.

Creating and Connecting

We're just putting the finishing touches on our new Amalgam website. It's been coming along nicely, and I must say I'm pretty proud of the results. Kim came up with the design and did all the imagery (banner, icons, etc.) And I put the site together using Enfold, a WordPress theme I've never used before but seems to be pretty popular. I think I'll use it again for future projects. We hope this site Read more [...]
