ERC Staffing Makeover

Employment Resource Center - Brainerd MN Jobs - Part Time and Full Time We developed the original site about 8 years ago. Chad Harting - owner of Employment Resource Center of Brainerd, Minnesota and I collaborated on the design. The site has served them well through the years, but it was time for a tune-up. We decided on an off-shoot of a one page design as is so common these days. We added a bunch of custom wing dings and other functions to give it some real pizazz. The result features a message window against the backdrop of beautiful lake scene, emblematic of this vacation area. ...

This company produces custom flooring and paneling and many other home products with a rustic flare that is unmatched anywhere. Although the site was well received, we wanted to add a responsive nature to it, since many of the patrons are from out of town and view the site in a mobile environment.

Brick House Pizza

Brick House Pizza Bread and Bagel is a favorite restaurant in the Brainerd Lakes area. The site definitely needed a facelift since we'd crafted the original over 10 years ago. We wanted something different for the website, since we already had a mobile website. The mobile website was built specifically for folks on the go, as is typical for this type of business. With their mobile traffic coming in at over 50% it was a necessity. The new design of the website features a long one page display, which I have historically avoided, but it does allow for some interesting gymnastics. Check it o...

She wanted to offer online "Do-It-Yourself" sign making, as well as connect an eCommerce engine to the website.

I have used Todd extensively in the past. He's one of the best, most creative "programmer web guys" I've come across in ...
