Lake County Office of Education Site Launched

BitSculptor recently launched a completely revamped website for the Lake County Office of Education. Based in Lakeport, CA, the LCOE provides leadership and support to surrounding communities by planning, facilitating, and delivering services and educational programs.

The new site features a beautiful new custom design by BitSculptor, along with powerful backend content management tools which allow LCOE staff to administer all site content including news items, a frontpage slideshow, calendar of events, department pages, and document archives.

Because of todays challenging economic climate, the website was built with the goal of improving staff efficiency and reducing maintenance time. One example of this can be seen at the sites staff directory, which interfaces directly with LCOEs internal staff database, automatically creating a printable directory which is always up to date.

Bitsculptor recently completed the development of the Bass is Loaded Mobile DJ site at http://www.bassisloadeddj.com/.

The site was designed to the client's specifications which included using the trademark basepath and colors of the logo throughout the site as well as icons in the navigation to illustrate what users can expect to find in that particular area.

All of the pages on the site are edited by the client using secure backend administration tools developed by Bitsculptor.

In addition to the new design and backend tool development, Bitsculptor also provided Search Engine Optimization for the site. This included researching keywords and implementing them throughout the site.

The client, Oregon wedding DJ specialist, Rick Whitehead, has already seen his search engine ranking climb to the top ten in the short time his new site has been up.

Grilled Cheese Tuesdays - It's On!

We work hard at BitSculptor--harder than many of you may think. These keyboards dont click themselves, after all. Between all the clicking and brainwork, we tend to burn a high number of calories. At least, thats what we tell ourselves...

To satisfy our caloric requirements, weve recently instituted Grilled Cheese Tuesdays at our main office in Lakeport, CA. Each Tuesday at noon we bring out the grill, a variety of breads and cheeses, and all the fixins, for a grilled cheese party like no other.

Each week we try some new ideas as we continue onward in our quest for grilled cheese glory. To date weve made sandwiches involving parmesan cheese, english muffins, salmon, bleu cheese, bacon, avocado, and variety of dangerous hot sauces... as well as trying out all the standard stuff like various breads, meats, and cheeses.

Join Us!
Weve enjoyed having clients and friends visit us each week, and now were extending the invitation to other locals. Wed love to have you stop by at noon on a Tuesday and grill a tasty sandwich. Our only request is that you call or email and let us know youll be coming, so we can ensure were adequately supplied. Your first visit, the foods on us. If you decide to come more often, we may ask you to pitch in a few bucks, or bring us Mothers Circus Animal cookies--Tuesdays dessert of choice. (We always run out fast!)

Shout Outs
We would be remiss if we didnt mention GrilledCheeseAcademy.com, a Wisconsin-based website which has given us some great ideas. We love our California cheese, but the Grilled Cheese Academy folks know whats up when it comes to grilling it. Also, we have to give a shout out to King of the Hill, a now-discontinued TV show which somehow seems to fit the ethos of Grilled Cheese Tuesday, and is therefore watched each Tuesday at noon as we eat.

Hornbaker Gardens of Princeton, IL goes live with new branding, site design, and e-commerce

Based in Princton, IL, Hornbaker Gardens has sold a variety of plants via mail order and on site since 1987. Specializing in irises, daylilies, and hostas, Hornbaker Gardens chose BitSculptor to revamp their web presence, creating a new image for the company and expanding web site capabilities to provide for the online purchasing of their core products.

BitSculptor designed a new logo for Hornbaker Gardens, for use on the web site, brochures, and various other marketing materials.

Visitors to the site may purchase hosta, daylilies, and irises via the online store. Gift certificates may also be purchased and redeemed through the web site, and an opt-in email list allows Hornbaker Gardens to easily contact past customers to inform them of sales and news.

BitSculptor implemented a custom URL rewriting tool on the site's catalog pages in order to increase visibility to top search engines such as Google, Yahoo!, and MSN. This tool ensures that each page of the catalog is seen as unique to the search engine, which greatly expands the amount of site content the search engine will index. More content indexed leads to more search engine referals, and more referals leads to increased sales.

Bitsculptor recently launched the DJ Super Laser 2000 site at www.djsuperlaser2000.com.

The DJ Super Laser 2000 has a couple of interesting features not found on all sites. The first is the language option allowing users the option of viewing the content in Spanish or English. This is an important feature in Lake County, California where the number of native Spanish speakers is very high.

The other feature of note is the design itself which provides a bright and bold platform for owner Jesus Tapia to show off his equipment and services. This while remaining exceptionally easy for users to navigate.
