We love it when a plan comes together. Our work is a great example of our team’s technical and creative balance. If you see something you like make sure to get in touch with us so we can get a great site going for you too.
Confectionique is a retail experience and a collection of virtual boutique outlets that feature elegance, style, and class. Their original site was just a blog, but they wanted to have a website that showcased their unique personality and brand. It was also important that they be able to feature their retail store openings, which are more like events than regular store hours.
We incorporated art from their store’s wallpaper and gave the site a feeling of elegance with a slight touch of whimsy. We also incorporated a blog and put in alerts to draw attention to store openings.
Badger Childhood Cancer Network is a prominent not-profit in Madison, WI. BCCN provides a myriad of services for families whose children have been recently diagnosed with cancer. The site needed a redesign that would be friendly, comforting and still professional. Additionally they wanted to be able to take donations online, but they wanted to provide scheduled, continual options as well.
WB Manufacturing LLC
WB Manufacturing had a cumbersome site that they couldn’t manage themselves. With hundreds of skus and multiple ways to customize a piece of furniture WB needed to be able to make updates on their own. We moved their site to WordPress and gave the site a design refresh. We trained their team to make changes and to manage their own site. Once the new site went live the team picked the site up and started tackling updates and additions right away.
Ourlives is an LGBTQ magazine local to Wisconsin. The editor came to Design.Garden with ideas with how he wanted his media site to work. This is a content heavy site that needed filtering not just by category, but by region. With some clever thinking and slick code we were able to create a site that the editor was hoping for.
Conlon Construction has been in business since 1903. They build big box stores, museums and spectacular college campus landmarks all over the country. Their site just didn’t match their expertise or brand. Conlon needed a site that spoke to the historic elements of their company as well as modern builds. We created a site that was clean, modern and included some interactive elements like a timeline and project map.
5NINES had gone through a couple of websites before the web services team (now Design.Garden) came on board. This site had to be THEE site. We developed a multi site that pulled 6 different sites together to make one. Users are able to move freely between all sites with easy navigation back to where they came from.
Wisconsin Municipal Mutual Insurance Company had a custom theme. Custom themes are cool, but typically they are difficult to edit and manage. As was the case for WMMIC. Like many of our clients WMMIC wanted to be able to manage their own site. We used off-the-shelf tools and tightened up the design.
Wisconsin Association of School Boards wanted a multitude of custom features included in their site redesign and continued web support after the site was launched. While WASB has their own web team that keep the site updated they partner with us to sort out kinks and issues along the way. Additionally, we have developed custom plugins that have automated tasks to save time and money.
Mad Radio 92.7
Civic Media needed a site for their rebranded Madison radio station, that encompassed their no-nonsense news and talk. It also needed to manage streaming and podcasts on a private server. Since Design.Garden offers a full range of technology services we were able to take an idea and set the radio team up with everything they needed so their audience can listen to any of their shows at anytime.
Clients say nice things about us.
“I don’t think the team at Design.Garden was prepared for how complex of a site I was hoping for. To be fair, I don’t think I was either. The idea I originally brought to them kept evolving as we went through the development process. To their credit, they were highly adaptable, and really comforting to work with. We developed a rapport and strategic plan that resulted in one of the most innovative frameworks for a regional community media website. I trusted them to bring my vision to life, and also to be able to provide long-term support as the site is implemented and as it grows. That was a decision that I’d happily make again.”
