The new site design was developed to reflect not only the Chamber’s recently implemented branding changes also created by MESH Design Group, but to greatly expand the amount of information made available to both potential and existing Chamber members.
Michael McNally, president of the Chamber, made clear to us his vision of a website that would offer local businesses with a convincing reason to join the Burke County Chamber of Commerce while providing the necessary communication to existing members to keep them involved.
Through close coördination with ChamberMaster, a member management services provider for Chambers, MESH developed the necessary templates to ensure a seemless transition between the Chamber’s website and ChamberMaster pages.
Developed on the WordPress platform, the website is easy for the Chamber staff to keep current with new content and edits of existing content. The stability of WordPress and all plugins is ensured through daily updates of code on our hosting platform.
We are honored to have been trusted with this project by our local Chamber of Commerce and proud of the resulting website that will help them to grow their membership.
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.
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).
