AHA Consulting Engineers

AHA-Engineers

Recently celebrating its 20th year as a consulting engineering firm with clients across the country and internationally, AHA requested a redesign of its former dark, image-based, hard-to-navigate website.

Dalton Fischel Design

DaltonFischelDesign

The Dalton Fischel graphic design firm knew exactly how they wanted their website to look. Business Max took Dalton Fischel’s page layout graphics and pieced them into seamless, fast-loading images and implemented the coding behind each page to lay it out exactly as needed.

A clever rollover index system presents their identity, print, and publishing portfolios.

Naylor Hall

NaylorHall

Naylor Hall is a beautiful Antebellum wedding venue in historic Roswell, Georgia. The old website was dark with small photos and was difficult to navigate. Business Max designed a bright layout with large photos and gallery slideshows. Professional photos from various events highlight not only the beautiful building and grounds but also the happiness of the day.

The website also provides a wealth of information for the event planner – descriptions of various events and contact information for professional event contractors. Unique to Naylor Hall’s website is the Wedding Chic section, a slider gallery of wedding fashion.

 

Bean Head Toys

BeanHeadToys

Bean Head Toys in Sandy Springs, GA sells fun, educational toys and books. Business Max created a background and text art to coordinate with the fun logo created by graphic designer Dalton Fischel.

The website features color-changing “jumping bean” navigation buttons, and colorful product photographs and logos on every page. An animated photo shows how the kid’s party room expands to accommodate larger parties. The owner maintains a blog with an rss to email feed to announce new products and upcoming store events.

Defeet Cancer

DefeetCancer

Our 2011 pro bono website for Defeet Cancer, a fundraising organization for cancer research, needed to be self maintained by the non-profit’s chairs to announce upcoming events and publicize previous ones. It also needed to provide for PayPal donations and sales of the organization’s merchandise.

The WordPress platform was perfect for this site’s content management. Each event is published as a post – and tagged as upcoming or recent. A WordPress plugin easily installs photo galleries for each post. Defeet Cancer’s logo was converted into a vector graphic to clean up the logo and also use it as the site’s background.

Billy Vanilly Cupcakes

BillyVanillyCupcakes
Since it’s opening in 2007 in Topeka, KS, Billy Vanilly Cupcakes has grown in popularity for its unique and delicious cupcakes- so much so that it has since moved into a larger facility and is now planning a second location. The bakery was even featured on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars. The bakery and Business Max have continued to work together to keep the site fresh and up to date. Roll-over cupcake descriptions keep the menu page tidy yet functional. The site also features a blog in which the pastry chef can write about her newest creations and send to email subscribers. Twitter account integration on the home page highlight unique daily offerings.

Mandana Salon

Mandana_Salon_GA

Mandana Zeimaran brings an international perspective and extensive training to her artistry and her clients. In the mid-1990’s, Mandana began regularly traveling to Europe to learn more advanced hair, skin and make-up techniques, culminating in the opening of Mandana Spa & Salon in Johns Creek in 2005. The 2010 redesign of Mandana’s website needed to reflect her contemporary personality and style.

The website was designed to have a modern, urban feel. The name element of the logo is mirrored vertically alongside the content. Photos and navigation stand out against the dark background. Grunge icons link to Mandana’s social media.

The site also seamlessly incorporates a customized WordPress blog which serves to post updates for clients and also contains a plugin for selling salon goods.

Krogh Cabinetry

Krogh-Cabinet-Maker

Chris Krogh of Krogh Cabinetry, a second generation cabinetmaker, produces high-end, custom cabinetry. This website redesign focused on highlighting the company’s beautiful work through multiple slideshows. Pages for specific room cabinetry provide photo close-ups to show its craftmanship and fine detail. Ranking for this website greatly improved with best SEO practices.
