CALIFORNIA WINDMILLS

http://www.californiawindmills.net

Seven Blocks Design built a new WordPress website for California Windmills, a sister company to Diamond Crane Company, which was also updated from a dated Yahoo! business page site. The websites for the sister companies were built to have structural and stylistic similarities, while still having separate identities.

Although the company had been in business for a number of years, their previous website and print collateral did not have a logo or clear branding, so Seven Blocks Design created a brand and logo for California Windmills.

BACK2BASICS OUTDOOR ADVENTURE THERAPY

http://www.back2basics-soberliving.com

Seven Blocks Design restructured, redesigned, and built a new WordPress website for this long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab with a unique multi-faceted program. Seven Blocks Design did a major site overhaul addressing numerous issues to make the site easier to navigate and find information such as simplifying the site structure and site navigation, reducing the number of pages to have to click through to get key information, and creating blocks of content with bold topic headings to aid the reader’s attention. Analysis information aided the site structure changes and was used to maintain search engine ranking despite an extensive restructuring.

TEAM
Diana Hobstetter led the website design/build.
Otono Lujan provided analytics, SEO, and Adwords.
Timm Freeman provided brand refinement.

CROSSROADS SCHOOL FOR ARTS & SCIENCES: 2014-15 ANNUAL REPORT WEBSITE

Seven Blocks Design designed and developed a SchoolPress website for the private school’s annual report, showcasing school programs that contributions supported, messages from school representatives, financial breakdowns, and donor names in 12 categories. The design directive was to create a look influenced by the children’s book “It’s Not A Box” while maintaining the school’s brand guidelines. The SchoolPress platform, a restricted WordPress environment within a school management system, meant working in a more restricted way than usual, where adding themes and plugins or modifying files were not options, and all modifications were made with CSS coding.
