Skyline String Quartet Chicago - Chicagoland Quartet - www.SkylineStringQuartet.com

The prominent Skyline String Quartet, who perform in weddings, receptions, parties and other events in the Chicagoland area, wanted more contacts from the search engines.

The Western Michigan University (WMU) Music Therapy Department

The Western Michigan University (WMU) Music Therapy Department is one of the most highly recognized Music Therapy programs in the nation.

However their website did not reflect the quality and professionalism of their program. The content (words, pdf files, other documents) was fine - but the site layout was not up to their professional standards (below left).

In a matter of less than a week, Kallen Web Design brought their site into the University Standard Template, created a Custom Masthead and Custom Splash Image Bar, brought all their words, pdf's and Docs over, added several new images, and then updated some of the content.

The Department Director is very pleased with the process and the results!

The total cost was only a little over half of his initial expectation!

We then trained departmental staff so they could keep the site up-to-date without requiring regular assistance from Kallen Web Design.

John Hoerr - Internationally Recognized Labor Author - www.JohnHoerr.com

This internationally recognized author desired a web site to showcase his books and articles, and so colleagues looking for him on the web could find his contact information.

In 2008 we did a - beautiful and inexpensive complete site redo to promote his new novel.

WMU Comparative Religion Departmental Website - www.wmich.edu

This university department badly needed an updated site. After meeting with a group of five representatives from the department, we integrated their ideas into our design. We used some of their graphics and found many others to add to their theme. We also created links to Amazon.com so students could purchase books and the department would get a small commission.

The site has since been modified quite a lot by students and staff. It has evolved into something different from what we originally created for them so we removed the live link.

Saugatuck Hideaway Vacation Rentals - www.SaugatuckHideaway.com

This client owns a high-end vacation property rental business in Michigan. They felt their homegrown site needed a more professional look, and approached us for assistance.

WMU STEP - Grant Funded University Program - www.wmich.edu/step

in 2006, Kathleen, our owner and designer, directed a grant-funded program at Western Michigan University. The program needed a way to communicate to prospective and existing students and faculty.

West Michigan Appraisal Services - www.WestMichiganAppraisal.com

Click to visit West Michigan Appraisal Service, Inc.

Detroit Engaged Encounter Program - www.EngagedEncounterDetroit.com

The Eastern Michigan branch of a pre-marriage counseling organization wanted a website that reflected the beauty of marriage, and utilized their themes and logo. This site received many accolades for its beauty and message.

A church in St. Charles, IL, needed a web site that looked contemporary. Their previous site was text-dense and had all content on one long scrolling page, making it difficult to find information.

Stitching Memories Yarn Shop - www.StitchingMemories.com

Click to visit Stitching Memories
This site is one of the first sites Kathleen completed early into her post-graduate certification in communications from the Advanced Technology Center for New Media.

The yarn company has long since taken over the maintenance of this site and made many changes. This is merely an archive.
