Logo and business card designs for Maynard Electric Company
This logo for Maynard Electric Company was designed to function well in the electrical trade by cutting the clutter and getting straight to the point. The logo was designed in a traditional oval format with an extra “Web 2.0″ look added to achieve a bit more visual volume giving it a subtle, polished 3D appearance.
In an industry as competitive as the electrical trade, looking professional and being memorable can be everything. Having a professionally deisgned brand that looks great is the first step to building consumer confidence. As the old saying goes — no one wants to eat at a restaurant with a broken down sign because the kitchen probably looks the same.

Website design for The Powell Group
The Powell Group, a custom home builder located in Morganton, North Carolina came to MESH Design Group wanting their website updated and expanded to provide more functionality for themselves and their clients. We delivered a clean website design that visually illustrates the quality of the beautiful homes they build combined with expanded content and built on a Content Management System (CMS) so they can manage all aspect of the website in-house.
The main section of the home page features a large slideshow that allows the company to showcase their work. The lower section allows for introductory copy, a random testimonial from one of their satisfied clients, and a few headlines from their recent news section.
The interior of the site uses a mix of full width and two column (main content with sidebar) layouts. The sidebar is used to feature random testimonials and cross navigation links to recent news and photo galleries.
When looking at the front end of this website, you would never know it is built on top of WordPress. We take great pride in providing completely custom website designs that uniquely reflect each client’s business, yet built on a system that allows for easy maintenance by the client. This approach allows our clients to manage their own website content as desired, yet have a great looking site that does not have a cookie-cutter template look and feel.
The design of this website also makes use of “responsive design,” so it displays well on desktop and laptop computers, tablets, and mobile phones. Responsive design is the design method recommended by Google to achieve the best search engine indexing because it uses one set of HTML files for content and CSS media queries to alter the display of the information depending on the size of the user’s viewport (screen size).

Website design for Burke Arts Council
We have just released a new website for the Burke Arts Council that provides them with a completely fresh look and a responsive design that displays well on desktop computers and mobile devices. The clean design compliments their new logo that was also designed by MESH Design Group.
The site is developed on top of the WordPress CMS (Content Management System). We develop using WordPress because it is supported by a huge community of developers which insures a website that is bug free and secure with regular updates. It also means that the Arts Council’s website has thousands of plugins available for future enhancements.
The design of the website, however, would never indicate to the visitor that it is built on the world’s most popular CMS. We take great pride in creating website designs that do not look like a template site. We completely customize all of the front end files for the website to incorporate the responsive custom design.
Check out their new website now!
