Here is a site that went officially live just a few days ago...
The client is a company with several offices across Hawaii that assists small and medium sized businesses effectively manage their employees and assumes many of the administrative duties required of any company with employees.
The project was a collaboration between Barry McCullough of McCullough Convergence Consulting (http://barrymccullough.com/) and myself whom most of you already know - Ben Pyman aka Wild Creature Development (find me HERE or email me HERE).
Barry's initial concept for the project was for his client to update from their out-of-date, old fashioned static 'brochure style' website to something modern, clean and professional that would help KilaKila generate new business leads and better serve their existing customers through proving current, readily changing 'Blog' style content. The design, while ultimately 'B2B' and 'professional', needed to remain approachable, friendly and relaxed in-line with Hawaiian sensibilities.
Here's Barry's take on the project...
This was a highly successful joint project between a sales and marketing consultant and a web developer specializing in WordPress and Catalyst. I have been working with my client KilaKila for over a year and what made the project run so smoothly was how Ben and I were able to focus on our strengths whilst being able to overlap when necessary. We didn't have to backtrack nor get caught up in endless presentations. Although Ben is in Adelaide and my client and I are on Maui, there was no problems with the time and distance between us. I'm looking forward to other collaborative projects with Ben, it's been a marvelous experience - and yes the client is delighted!
Barry, the client and I are all very happy with the end result, and all look forward to working together on more projects soon. It was especially enjoyable for me to work with someone like Barry who was exceptional in managing what was a big project involving many people all with differing ideas. Somehow he managed it in such a way that everyone got to have their input, yet there was no part of the project that needed to be re-done from start to finish.
For anyone interested, I'll soon post a thread in the developers forum mentioning just a few of the things we've done with this site in both the design/build and a a few handy features for client updatability and end-user usability.
