Designing for a Successful Web Project

Illustration by Kevin Kennedy - strazi.orgAt Sitemason, we're lucky to work with a lot of really talented design partners. We also work with designers at various stages in their career. When working with beginners, we often see folks with tons of design talent, but sometimes they're a little green when it comes to designing for a successful web project.

After the break we consider design best practices for a project's ultimate success from the view of the client and web developer.

Sitemason 6 Watch: Actions in Action

Continuing our interface teaser, today we wanted to show off how Actions will work in the new interface. Sitemason defines Actions as any change that modifies the list. Here's a brief video showing off Adding a Page, Reordering the list, editing a Page, Duplicating a Page, and finally deleting that duplicate. Enjoy!

Come to Live on the Green!

Anyone who's moseyed through downtown Nashville the past couple Thursday evenings knows just how successful Live On the Green has become. The free concert series has grown to be a major attraction in town. With such a large production, a lot of people (fans, bands, the mayors office, sponsors, etc.) depend on the website being an effective communication tool. The last thing promotors need to worry about is their website performance. Learn how Sitemason works with clients and partners and check out the remaining schedule!
