We feature automatic database backups, embedded Google Maps, embedded video and more, with no interest time payments. In addition, every new website we build comes with a fully functional mobile version. Even our budget sites.
Norfolk Southern Railroad gave us the opportunity to rebuild their popular Company Store, where people buy branded items, memorabilia and other railroad themed products. We built the website to look similar to their company website, configured a new e-commerce system and uploaded all of their products.
E-commerce features include sale pricing, product search, user friendly checkout and pricing by apparel size.
El Patron Cantina returned as a Richmond Media client, and we created something different for them. Their Home page is a series of animated sliders that scale into place with a “Ken Burns” effect, linking to the most important pages on the site. Features include a tabbed menu page, an embedded Google Map with door to door driving directions, a tiled Gallery page and a Newsletter signup link. The website uses custom fonts throughout, and links to their social media.
Ironbridge Sports Park is one of the largest sports parks in the Richmond, VA area. We built them a website big enough to show off their property. A large Home page slider with Ken Burns effect, pages for each attraction with large tiled Galleries, forms for special events, a park map, and an embedded location map are just a few of this website’s many features.
Our talented partners at Duke Communications asked us to redesign the Virginia School of Hair Design’s website. We gave them a thoroughly modern look with a Ken Burns effect slider and page wide Home page content. We also updated their site content and added a large embedded location map, a contact form and a mobile friendly site.
Pinery Water Management is a Colorado based water company serving a large port of the state. We took the content from their old site, updated it, and put a website together that can be easily accessed by their customers.
We streamlined their navigation and split the pages into more relevant groups for ease of use.
Another collaboration in our partnership with IIr Associates Inc, The Dinwiddie County Water Authority (DCWA) is a water management company in central Virginia. We updated their very old website to a modern WordPress build, with lots of PDF content, FAQs, location map, links to water bill payments and much more.
Dolan Properties is a central Virginia company with many rental apartment properties. Not only did we set up pages for those properties, we also set up an e-commerce system to allow renters to pay their rent online. Even cooler was their online rental application, which not only has a digital signature field, upon clicking Submit, it send the user to PayPal to pay the application fee.
In addition to a large embedded location map with door to door driving instructions, the site has four separate forms for potential clients, prospective employees and referral candidates to submit.
Roomers is a delightfully quirky interior design shop in Henrico, Virginia. We created a very colorful theme to highlight the look of their store. The Home and Products pages are image based instead of text based, so clients can easily navigate their selection of product categories.
Eight product category pages are a blend of text, images and image galleries.
We were able to do this because their site content was miles and miles of text, rather than a lot of images to design around. We used the “fading away” background design to add a strong visual element to the volume of text.
Branch Fields is a renowned opera singer, who also appears in plays, musicals and television. We set up a budget site that includes a tiled gallery, videos, audio files, his schedule and a page for reviews of his work.
Since we didn’t need to worry about search engines we were able to take some artistic liberties with the Home page.
First United Methodist Church of Hampton, VA has a large congregation with many needs, and a large website. We created a new WordPress content management system and upgraded all images and other media. we also updated all of the text content to fit the modern design and the mobile version of the site.
Moore Sign Corporation is a large commercial sign company in Chester, VA. The site includes many high resolution galleries of their work, custom head tag graphics to give the products an individualized look, and a gallery of their Potomac Mills sign, at the time, the largest flexible face sign in the world.
A budget website for a psychiatric practice. This WordPress site includes About Us, Providers, Location and Contact pages. We found that Google Maps had an error in the location of one of the practices, and we found a way around it by using longitude and latitude values instead of the actual address.
We gave the site a resizable collage of images in addition to setting up all of their ministries and outreach programs.
Neptuna Fishing Charters is a Key West charter service that lost control of their own old WordPress website. We were able to create a completely rebuilt site without the benefit of hosting or FTP logins.
The site features a page about local fish, an online booking form, and ages about the charter and the boat.
We gave them a budget website that works for both of their office locations, describes the various programs, and encourages potential clients to contact them with questions..
Explore Hilton Village Is both a historical resource and a business directory for the Hilton Village area in Newport News, VA. Features include full screen galleries of rare photographs of the construction of Hilton Village, articles about the area and an extensive, searchable database of local businesses.

Like all of our websites, automatic backups and extra security is included.
We had to resurrect it from its original version, requiring a complete code makeover. With so much text on the site, we kept the design as utilitarian as possible.
GoodBuy Vacations is transitioning from renting vacation resort timeshare properties to becoming a full service travel agency. We created a different kind of Home page, without a lot of text, to draw site visitors into the site with a rich, colorful design.
The aim of the site is to collect contacts, and we use a system of request forms to get this done.
Endless Resorts is a companion site to GoodBuy Vacations as they transition to a travel agency with multiple services. The older timeshare content remains, but isn’t featured as much as the newer services they offer.
We use the same strategy of request forms that we used on the GoodBuy Vacations website.
