We’re Expanding!

Bigger is better and we are getting bigger…

When we hired an addition to our web team it became (painfully) obvious we needed more room.  Four large desks in one office makes a very cramped work space.    So, when two rooms next to our current office space became available we jumped at the opportunity to expand.  We have almost doubled our square footage and have some amazing plans for the new space—and we want to share ’em with you!

Just Launched: Dark Potential


Dark Potential is a table-top strategy game created by the team at MiniWarGaming. It is set in a post-apocalyptic future in the aftermath of an alien attack that has left Earth’s population decimated, and its cities destroyed or in disrepair. Surviving human factions now fight with each other and the aliens to survive.

The website design for Dark Potential needed to capture the feel of game’s post-apocalyptic setting. Visitors to the site will instantly have a feel for the game’s mood and setting even before browsing through the content.

The site was created using HTML/CSS with a “News” section that is powered by WordPress CMS.

Grand Erie Home Hardware

GrandErie Home Hardware is the complete package for area locals and seasonal campers alike, with products ranging from your normal Home Hardware store all the way to a full range of pet and equestrian supplies.

Their goal was to highlight their commitment to their community as well as their products and services. The site’s design highlights the people who work at the store and make it a special place to shop.

Because the site needed to be constantly updated it was built on the WordPress CMS to make editing and adding content an extremely easy task. The team at GrandErie can add articles, flyers, events, photos and product information whenever they wish to keep customers engaged and informed.

Just Launched: Bryan Caporicci Photography

Bryan Caporicci Photography

Bryan Caporicci is an award winning wedding and portrait photographer based out of Fonthill. In 2011, Bryan was awarded his Craftsman of Photographic Arts (CPA) designation by the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC), making him the youngest photographer in Canada to receive this level of achievement.

Bryan needed an updated web presence to showcase his impressive body of work. Because Bryan’s photos are so visually stunning, the choice was made to keep the design simple and elegant.  The minimalistic design enhances his portfolio by not competing for dominance.

We created a “hybrid” site that combined the blog functionality and gallery capabilities of the WordPress CMS (Content Management System) with static webpages.  The setup allows Bryan and his team to easily add new photos to their galleries.

Just Launched: The Purse and the Scarf

The Purse and the Scarf is located in Niagara Falls, ON.  They offer the latest in women’s fashion and home decor.  Their impressive inventory includes stylish handbags, beautiful jewelery, fashionable scarves and an abundance of other accessories.

The Purse and the Scarf was originally Beaches Beauty Boutique, a boutique offering tanning, pedicures, manicures, hair colouring and highlights, gel nails, shellac, makeup application, waxing, and more. The goal was to transition away from tanning and focus on the selling of their beauty products.

They were looking for a website that promoted their services and allowed users to purchase products online. We used the WordPress CMS to created a fully-functional, easy to edit, eCommerce website. Using this system the store can add, edit and remove virtually all content and products on their website.
