Here’s a look at some of our most recent projects!
- Purple Passion Beauty Studio
While living on this tiny but thriving little island in the Caribbean I just happened to mention to the girl doing my nails that I had a web design company… guess what they needed?
- The Lakes Cottages & Restaurant
So much to do at ‘the Lakes’! And what a setting!It was important to appeal to kids… but also to their moms and dads. We needed to show the idyllic location as well as the variety of fun activities to be had by the whole family.
- Ocean View Cottage
Clean and blue. Just like the view from Ocean View Cottage. A minimal but pretty design that stirs up that ‘laid-back, summer-at-the-bungalow-in-Cape-Breton’ feeling. We added an availability calendar so, at a glance, the visitor can pick their week to kick back and watch the fishing boats come and go!
- The Water’s Edge
“When you’ve got it – flaunt it” they say. The Water’s Edge definitely ‘has it’ – ‘The water’s edge’ of the beautiful Bras d’Or Lakes.
That amazing setting, coupled with the three cheerily painted faces of the historic buildings that make up this unique property were a fantastic stimulous for the redesign of their website.
Ingonish Chalets have been with us since the early days – 1995!The website originally created for them back then was sorely in need of upgrading in order to bring it up to today’s web technology standards. We went to work, list in hand, checking off each of the criteria as it was met.
The result is a fresh, modern, easy-to-navigate yet full-featured website that its owners can be proud of! …not to mention… us 😉
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!“Happened to check out the website – WHOA! – very nice, very appealing”That’s what we like… happy customers and impressed visitors.
One concern of the client when this upgrade project was discussed was that she didn’t want ‘modern’. She liked the ‘old world ambience’ of the original website and didn’t want to lose it in the makeover.Did we pass the test? Here’s what she said when it was completed:“Wow, it looks great. You have, again, added your ‘artist touch’.“
Back Cove Cottages took advantage of our ‘makeover’ service and at the same time upgraded from a 1-page website to our ‘Standard CMS’ package with a photo gallery, an availability calendar and a location map.“I love it! Just had a look, that is a really nice facelift…looks great & thank you for your excellent work.”

The grace and fluid motion of the ballet discipline, but also the gaity, colour and the drama of performance night needed to be swirled into the online presentation of Ballet Bras d’Or.From the backdrop suggestive of the curtain and spotlight to the stature and poise of the young dancers to the flowing, gently entwining pastel lines reminiscent of ‘ballerina ribbons’, and the traditional ballet colours of black and pink, we think this design deserves centre stage… take a bow!Visit BalletBrasdOr.com
The warm and welcoming hues of hunter green and pine log siding in the Green Highlander Lodge lobby translated nicely to the website design to ensure visitors to the site would sense the ‘cozy lodge’ feeling they will experience when they visit the real thing in person.
Broker, Cathy Harvey and her team needed both functionality and fashion when it came time to upgrade their popular but outdated real estate website. Visitors can now search by Price, Location and Property Type (or all three). The back-end CMS system was a breeze to master for each team member and pictures are now displayed in a larger, cooler format. A Google map is automatically generated when the team member enters the address when creating each listing.
The Cabot Trail Relay Race needed a website that allowed for updates to team lists, etc. to be easily done, not to mention the old site had been around for over a decade and drastically needed refreshing! The old forum was constantly under attack by spammers, so that was a priority concern for the new website which now boasts a spam-free place where teams and runners can communicate freely.
