We had the pleasure of building out the Notch Brewing site for this session beer brewery. With craft beers and microbrews taking off we continue to do work with Notch as they add new products and more establishments carry their offerings.

Social networking cocktail enthusiasts See My Drink hired us to build a custom social networking platform for users to upload and share their drinks. They then asked us to build a mobile version of the site for their Android users and a native iPhone app.

Salem eco-friendly Witch City Wicks grew their soy based candle business and has us build an ecommerce solution that allows them to accept orders world wide.

In the Studio...

Local business Fools Mansion just got a full blown identity update and new temporary site while we work on their forthcoming ecommerce site.

With the economy the way it is, we are getting more requests for inexpensive CMS tools that are SEO friendly and standards compliant. Thankfully we've been using WordPress software as a Content Management System for some of our clients for a few years now and are WordPress wizards.

Previously Released...

New England's largest tattoo gathering the Boston Tattoo Convention needed a CMS that would allow their people to add artists and vendors on the fly and could integrate with their social media marketing.

Big time Food Blogger The Hungry Mouse called upon us site refresh with a focus on SEO and advertising sales. She has cracked the Alexa top 100k and boosted ad sales by 600%.

Financial management company Permal Capital Management had us build a clean site with CMS using plenty of Boston imagery.

Motorcycle Maven Rippin' Kitten loved our previous work so much she wanted a new site. We jumped on the opportunity to work with such a high profile site and did a new HTML5 CSS3 wordpress theme for her.

Bellydance performer/teacher Aepril Schaile saw her new site go online in late May, just in time for Salem to receive its summer visitors.

We just rolled out the three of four tattoo websites for our friends over at Witch City Ink. The other three sites are in the studio now with releases scheduled through March
