Accelerated Capital Posted on 2/11/2009

Today we just launched a new site for Accelerated Capital (ac).  AC is a business based here in Bend that specializes in residential loans and commercial lending for clients here in Bend and all across Oregon.  Yon Olsen, head broker at AC, is a good friend and fellow skier so we were excited to help them with this project!

The new site features an elegant custom design that is powered by our Haiku2 Content Management System.  Yon can pop in and update site copy, manage testimonials, and add news items to keep his site fresh and interesting.  So check out the site, and be sure to give Yon a call if you are shopping for a great rate on your next home or commercial loan.

Covergirl Kaydee Posted on 2/1/2009

Our sweet little girl Kaydee has landed her first big magazine (kind of) cover!  We had some excellent photos done last December by Kristi Eckberg for Kaydee's 1st birthday.  Kristi is a local Bend Oregon photographer who specializes in child photography, family photography, and of course babies!

Kristi asked if she could submit one of Kaydee's pictures to the Central Oregon Family News we said sure!  We'll the picture was awarded photo of the month, and now you can pick up a copy of Kaydee at many locations around Central Oregon.

Thanks again Kristi for the great shots!

Hooker Creek Posted on 12/10/2008

Well after many months of design, development... and then some re-design and re-development, the *new* Hooker Creek website went live today.  In conjunction with our friends at Key Creatives we once again delivered a fully customized Content Management Solution to help showcase Central Oregon's finest construction supply company.

Todd Chester drew up a great design that mingles perfectly with all other Hooker Creek marketing assets/collateral.  This was then placed on top of our Haiku Content Management System.  Custom applications abound on this site including a tool to feature various Project Profiles, Awards, and an Event Calendar.

Bedrock Solutions Posted on 9/12/2008

Just finished up a total site overhaul of one of our long-time clients– Bedrock Solutions

Bedrock's original site was built with an open-source CMS solution, and as with most "boxed" CMS systems, Bedrock needed a more customized solution.

As such, we went for a fresh new design, and a customized Content Management System built with our Haiku CMS. Be sure to go check it out, and if your business needs some enterprise-grade Microsoft / Network support, give these guys a call.
