Web Development is a bizarre endeavour. Two websites can look great, one cost $500 to develop and the other $10,000. Why the difference?
Our key to success is to have the client understand what the purpose of their website is, what are the objectives to be achieved?
Everyone wants their site "to look cool". But define "cool", that's the problem; you know it when you see it, but no one can describe it!
We have the skill to educate the client, to enable them to understand the technology. To have them think about their "web presence" beyond the "cool factor".
We have developed websites for small to medium sized businesses and non-profit organizations. Some of the client's requirements were very interesting; rigid rules from parent organizations, dial-up only end users. Each client has their own needs and we have built sites to meet those needs.
| The Engineering Human Resources Association |
A significant requirement of this client was that the website must be bilingual. All underlying code is written once but the content is duplicated in two languages. Visitors can easily switch between languages.
The site contains the requisite who/what/where/when/why information about the association as well as a sophisticated custom built back end to process signups to the association's conferences and an administrative section to allow the associations accountant access to the sign up information.

| VAST - Valley Autism Support Team |
The Annapolis Valley Autism Support Team
This a "no charge" client. This is done to help out a worthwhile organization.
The website is simple with a minimum of graphical information due to the fact that the primary visitors to the site are persons in rural Nova Scotia who are on dial up access to the internet. This requirement dictated the site be primarily text based with fast load times.

| SDA - The Society For Design Administration |
This client had a very restrictive Style Guide which had to be followed. The site is simple to navigate with separate sections for the general public and members only.
Of particular interest is the quarterly newsletter which incorporates a slick Flash interface to create an electronic "pseudo-paper" newsletter.
