The folks at JotForm recently let me know about one of their newest tools, Form Designer. I took it for a little test drive and quickly and easily created a simple contact form mirroring the one on my website. I chose colors that coordinated with my design and uploaded my logo right into the form header. With a simple embed code I was able to add the form (seen below) to my website. Continue reading »
With an extensive amount of content and a clear idea of what they wanted the site to look like, eClassic owners Bob and Donna Boberg were a fun couple to work with. This site showcases their second careers as classic car experts. Original photos and articles featuring car shows across the country are carefully organized in this busy but functional website. Several customized plugins provide an interactive events calendar, a custom blog and both photo and video galleries. The design is a continuation of their logo, with a carefully put together layout that invites users to check out all of the various content. Classic cars never looked so good! Continue reading »

Last year I worked with Dayrich Enterprises to create a new website for Wooldridge Heating, Air & Electrical. The design is based around the Wooldridge logo and several prominent images, and features various enriched jQuery design elements. A full page slideshow greets viewers, while the content pages include a transparent text box over the background image. The content slides in and out on each page, providing a quick transition that brings life to the content. The simple background gradient is derived from the company’s logo, with pops of red appearing throughout the site. Continue reading »
While working on a Blurb photo book of Isaac’s first year (yes, that cutie photographed several times above), I was looking for an easy way to download my Instagram photos. Enter, Instaport. Instaport is, “A simple way to save all your Instagram photos to your local hard drive.” Sweet and simple. There are several options as to which of your photos you’d like to download. You can choose a specific date range or number of recent photos, or a hash tag (if only I were one of those clever mothers that gave their child a unique hash tag on all of their photos! #hindsight). The files are of the highest Instagram quality, and the service is free (though there is a donation option if you’re feeling generous). The photos are titled by date, which is handy for putting together organized photo books. Just thought I’d share this helpful service! Happy Instagraming!

Whoops, the blog has been quite for a few months now! Welcome back! Let’s start with the newest edition of The List, a collection of random things that have caught my eye in the past few weeks. The List always includes an update on what some GetCreative clients are up to, some goodies from ‘the internets’, and anything that seems worth mentioning. If it provokes a smile, makes my life easier or is generally awesome- I will share it here.

Time for another group of websites that have been redesigned by GetCreative! Each before and after shot shows the progression of a client’s website. The amount of change that each site undergoes varies depending on the specific needs of each client. I hope you will enjoy these transformations.
The Education & Research Foundation, Inc. is a clinical research facility here in Lynchburg, Virginia. The company was in need of an updated website, so I worked with the designers and marketing experts at Dayrich to create a new, modern site to represent them. The website features both Client Services and Participant Information; read on to see how we integrated these two separate content areas.
