Web Sites

New responsive Wordpress website for First Insight, a technology company that develops EHR and Practice Management software for ophthalmology practices. DBD designed and built the updated First Insight website in partnership with the super-neat people at Superneat Marketing, a Portland-based content marketing company. The site has a clean, fresh style that appeals to their target audience of eye doctors and medical office managers. Don’t forget the blog! The new website also has a custom blogging system where the client can share news and events, as well as tips and tricks for using their software. Why is this a good thing? A healthy and current blog...

We just completed a large website redesign for Maxta, providers of hyperconverged software solutions for managing servers and hypervisors. The site was created in partnership with long-time collaborators Liquidbook on the Wordpress platform using a custom theme developed just for this project. We also created many of the custom illustrations and icons on the new site, based on a selection of stock illustrations....

We designed and built this scrolling one-page brochure site for Craft Canning + Bottling, the upstart Northwest leaders in their field of mobile beer, coffee, and cider packaging. There are a couple more pages on the site, but the landing page tells their story with parallax backgrounds, smooth scrolling, and a completely responsive layout....

We're pleased to share our new Wordpress website design and build project for PDX Jazz, a non-profit arts and cultural organization dedicated to curating jazz in Portland, Oregon and fostering the growth of live music in the Northwest. The site has an extensive customized events calendar system that includes the PDX Jazz Festival, an internationally-recognized, two-week concert event each February. We developed the site branding in partnership with Studio McLaughlin, who also designed the new logo and identity system....

The previous New Deal Distillery Website was cool and fun (heck, we designed it). But, the technology it was built on was getting a little dated and it was not a responsive design. Meaning that it would not adapt in size or configuration when people looked at it on a smart pad or a mobile phone compared to a computer screen. Their new site is not a huge departure in design, but it is now incredibly responsive. Mobile visitors to the New Deal site can now find exactly what they're looking for very quickly....

The website we designed and built for Lapchi was recognized as one of “50 Beautiful Canvas Websites” by Pootle Press, a company that develops add-on plug-ins for Canvas, a widely-popular Wordpress theme. The Canvas theme is essentially a blank canvas that we used as a foundation for the Lapchi website. You can download the e-book from Pootle Press here. The Lapchi site is on pages 101-104....

We just launched a new website for The Pearl, the official magazine of the Pearl District Business Association. The Pearl is a companion site for the Explore the Pearl website that we also developed, providing news and feature articles about businesses, people and events in the district. The new responsive website is built in Wordpress and features multiple category feeds on the home page, customizable advertising zones, refined type styling, social media interaction and newsletter sign-up forms....
