The Brief

legacy customer, uninterrupted service

Gary’s site began as a redesign in collaboration with DigiDonkey Web Design in Cocoa Village, FL in 2015.

It is a custom built PHP/HTML template that could be easily updated as new events came up and needed to be added. Event banners are designed in house and often shared on Facebook as the pages serve as Paypal payment stations and event landing pages. Gary continued on as a customer of Brilliant Blue Designs once DigiDonkey closed.     

The Challenge

Designs adapt as Platform adapts

The biggest challenges for providing services for Gary have been in adapting his pages and banners to best suit the platforms they would be shared to.  The initial design was built so that someone familiar with the code and familiar with his events could put the new events in within a very short period of time, with the page banners taking the majority of the time.   That has not changed in the past four years.  What has changed is the way that social media platforms like Facebook display images on event pages and timelines.  

The Results

Rewarding Partnership

Gary is one of the few full service customers at Brilliant Blue Designs and he has been with me the longest.  Not only did I have a hand in designing his site and I continue to design and maintain it, but I host it and do on page SEO and make sure the pages are suitable for digital marketing.  He’s a true pleasure to work with, and I look forward to continuing!

“Thank you so very much for your service! I am now spoiled by how quickly you respond to my requests both in answering my questions and updating my web site. You are also very creative regarding the event page banners. Your rates are reasonable and I hope you will be doing this for a long time to come. needs you. ” -Gary Haas

Info About COVID-19 Disruptions

important announcements

I am not currently working from my normal desk at the SheHive.  As an asthmatic, I will be working from home for the foreseeable future.  I am sharing my space and internet with my husband, teenage daughter, two needy pugs and a needy cat.  Availability will be affected.  In all likelihood, so will my productivity and maybe my sanity.  Yikes!  :) 

My normal office hours will be a loose guideline of when I am available.  Some days I may be available less due to circumstances beyond my control (internet,  most likely).  Thank you for your understanding in this time.  My evenings and weekends are busier than ever, and more chaotic.  I will not return phone calls until the next business day.  

Most normal contact me methods work- However, I will only be checking my mail in Ferndale about once a week or so.  If you need to mail something to me quicker (or need it to be signed for) please email me at [email protected] for my home address for a secure delivery.  Thank you!
