Martinka Consulting

Martinka Consulting

John Martinka’s website was designed and developed several years ago to promote his consulting business. While the site served him well for during this period, it was time for an update to a mobile responsive site. Most of the design elements were kept but the layout modified to allow the site to be easily viewed on phones as tablets as well as computers. To accomplish this, the theme was rebuilt using Underscores as a starter theme. Bootstrap provides the foundation for the responsive layout.

In addition to the layout changes, small icons were replaced with icon fonts and an old social media plugin was replaced a responsive one. Two testimonials display randomly on the home page and are animated with CSS.

Carol need a way to showcase her graphic design business. She had an old, outdated website that did not do justice to her portfolio.

Hall Spassov Gallery

Hall Spassov Gallery

The Hall Spassov Gallery had a custom theme designed by Horsepower Design a few years ago. Although the site was aesthetically pleasing, it was not mobile responsive. The lack of mobile responsiveness prompted the gallery owners to seek an update.

In updating the site, the same look and feel was kept. Only the layout changed to allow the site to be better viewed on a variety of screen sizes. To accomplish this, the theme was rebuilt using Underscores as a starter theme. Bootstrap provides the foundation for the responsive layout.

Dental Professionals - Responsive View

Dental Professionals

Dental Professionals had several goals in mind in seeking to revamp their website. The company wanted dental offices to be able to submit jobs and potential employees to register with Dental Professionals and apply for those jobs. Of course, Dental Professionals wanted to be able to edit and approve the jobs that would appear on their site.

Kool Kat Web Designs selected the WP Job Manager plugin to manage the posting of jobs. The plugin is light weight and easy to customize. We were able to change to layout, add custom fields and create links to forms where potential employees could apply for jobs.

Dental Professionals also wanted a simple layout that would work on phones and tablets as well as desktops and laptops. To this end, we chose to build a child theme based on the Responsive Theme from CyberChimps. Kool Kat Web Designs incorporated a custom logo and designed the child theme to have a more modern look than the original responsive theme.
