Academy Air is awesome! They were the only HVAC company that would come out to fix our AC during the heat wave of 2011. We had a baby at home. We were grateful that they took this into account. We became friends. This is how I repaid them.

Debora Hayden is an awesome counselor. Debora Hayden contacted us when she found out that her “free” Microsoft “do it yourself” (DIY) website service was being discontinued. Together we were able to design and develop an awesome website that fit her exact business needs.

Old Website

Hayden’s old DIY website enabled her to manage her own site. Yet, it greatly restricted her ability to craft the site to meet her needs, and it’s framework killed her SEO. Plus, it is nearly impossible to look original when forced to use/customize pre-made website templates.

Redesigning a website is an awesome task. According to Darwin, the most important factor in the survival of a species is not strength, nor is it smarts, but the ability to adapt. The secret to doing well online is adaptation.

Jonathan Toth from Hoth of  The Frozen Food Section is another long time friend of ours. Toth is an MC and a producer, and pushes the limits of creativity in everything he does.

Toth, inspired by the F5 Records website we made, asked us if we could redesign his website too. J-Toth’s website was about 10 years old and in a bad need of a makeover. Again, we helped The Frozen Food Section design the site they wanted and developed it to match their business needs.

Crucial came to us because he wanted to redesign his site to be simple, easy to sell music and most importantly, easy to manage. We launched the site right as Crucial had four new albums for sale, and we helped F5 Records make a killing in sales world wide.
