Turning complexity into clarity.

Here are some examples of our recent projects and the cool stuff we packed into the functionality. Our sites connect users with their audience. Making connection is our goal. Click on the examples below to get more details about what we do and how we did it.

Monique Jacob - New WordPress Website

Local author, Monique Jacob, asked for a website to highlight her works. Monique Jacob has been writing stories and songs since her first tortured-teen ramblings and she’s never managed to outgrow the habit. She stares at the walls an awful lot and has yet to convince anyone that this is when she’s working the hardest. She's a chronic storyteller whose worlds are populated with memorable characters navigating extraordinary journeys: hippy witch doctors, serial mortals, fake psychics, tree-hugging psychopaths and old ladies with too many cats. Born in Germany, Monique has moved 29 times in 9 cities and now makes her home on the West Coast, somewhere between Seattle and Vancouver – as the crow flies. She is the author of Tye Dye Voodoo and the newly-released Voodoo Mystery Tour.

Passive House Canada

Passive House Canada is a national non-profit professional association advocating for the Passive House high-performance building standard. Passive House is recognized internationally as the proven best way to build for comfort, affordability and energy efficiency of residential, institutional and commercial buildings, through all stages of design, construction, and livability.

We were asked to help out with this project. Though the project was well underway and was looking really good, we lent a hand with some of the inner workings of the mapping system and the WP_Query wrangling to get it to do what they needed to see done at Passive House Canada.

Connections Pro For WordPress

This site was built using WordPress. The Connections Pro WordPress plugin was deployed and augmented to give the Tradelink membership access to each other's public listings of content. Connections Pro is a directory plugin for WordPress. Its simplicity in design and function, vast array of unique features and versatility are the reasons more and more people are turning to Connections for their directory needs. We custom built a Connections Pro template to organize and present the members in searchable directory. We've used Connections Pro to create anything from a simple address book, maintain a staff directory and even run a business or link directory. Connections was built bottom up to be as configurable as possible while providing the features you need.
