It offers online appointments and is fully mobile ready.
As webmaster (I don’t think I like that term) for the National Water Research Institute in Fountain Valley, Orange County, I have developed a number of websites for conferences for water scientists, the lastest of which is DesalTech 2015, the International Conference on Emerging Water Desalination Technologies in Municipal and Industrial Applications to be held in San Diego. Big title but the site is really just a guide for participants to learn details about what to ezpect at the conference. Mobile ready, of course.
We just updated and upgraded this site to WordPress for one of our oldest clients, Able Legal Investigations. It now has a fresh, modern look, can be content managed by the site owner, and features improved mobile responsiveness. We had resisted WordPress sites at one time. But more and more, our clients are asking for the kinds of features that only WordPress can provide. As a result, this is our 7th new site on that platform over the last 6 months with several more in the pipeline. Who would have thought?

The Medici Donor Fund is a new start-up whose mission is to create jobs and economic development in urban and rural areas across the country. They do this by providing loans and financial assistance to entrepreneurs who don’t normally have access to traditional financing. For this initial roll-out in anticipation of a much larger site to come, we went with a simple scrollable one-page site that says all that needs to be said in a compact space. This makes finding information easy, whether on a phone, tablet, or full-size computer.
For our most recent web design — for MPR Intellectual Property — we went with a big, bold look that is guaranteed to attract the attention of inventors and creators who need solid, affordable help with preparing and filing patent applications. MPR has been around for over 15 years but this is their first true use of the web to assist this rapidly growing market. Does it need to be said that the site is phone- and tablet-ready?
