June hair styling salon in ballard

needed an update of their website. The basics were all there, wonderful pictures and the basic color scheme, but help was needed with putting it all together in a cogent design that would make June stand out among the other hair salons in Seattle, give a feel of what the salon was about and also highlight that appointments could be made online. June needed to rank better in search engine result pages (SERP), especially in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle and in searches for salons that cater to curly hair.

Visually, for salon website design what should stand out are the images of actual customers. Stock photos do not cut it. People want to see actual photos of hair that was styled. Fortunately JUNE has plenty of great photos of all different kinds of people and hair. Where Pacific Rim Web Design came in was to create an attractive design to show case JUNE’s images interspersed with quotes from the owner and testimonials that really help give potential customers an idea of what their experience at JUNE would be. An easy to use image gallery was also created to give even more information about the depth of experience JUNE has.

Search engine optimization of the website helped JUNE go up in rankings for Deva Curl Ballard to the first page and on the second page for Hair Stylist Ballard. This has been after only six weeks.

St. Clements episcopal Church in seattle

wanted a sleek and modern looking website that would be able to combine their traditional Anglo-Catholic worship with an up-to-date design. They also wanted the home page to contain the most important information and provide links for more information. Another concern was that a volunteer would be keeping content updated on the website and they did not want that person to be overburden with this task.

The website was designed with Square Space because all security updates are handled automatically with Square Space. Another plus was that no plugins are required. Events, Blogs, and Calendar, Galleries, Sliders and even E-commerce and Donation Buttons are integrated into Square Space. There will be no plugins that will become outdated and cause trouble for St. Clements. This will make the website volunteer’s job a lot easier.

st. john's episcopal church in snohomish

needed an easy to use website that volunteers would be able to use.  They also wanted a website that reflected their care for the environment and people in the community. They particularly wanted to emphasize their traditional looking church and were very proud of the church's architecture, grounds and environment and the fact that the church has been since it's beginnings in the late 1800s, a center of the community.  Throughout the website line drawings of the architecture, plants and garden and even the owl who lives in the bell tower together with photos of church members brings together St. John's love of the environment, people and their lasting center of community life.
