Financial Planning Services Inc, is a registered investment advisory firm based in Raleigh, NC. Its president, Holly Nicholson, is a Certified Financial Planner, money manager, and weekly columnist for the News & Observer. The newly designed and responsive askholly.com automatically adjusts so that it can be viewed clearly on any size device, including mobile phones. The challenge was to maintain a similar look and layout as the old site (so as not to throw off her regular clients), while making huge improvements to accessibility of all of the content, forms, and downloads hosted thereon. I think we have succeed.

Sites Commercial is a general contractor and commercial real estate developer. I'm wrapping up a site overhaul on sitescommercial.com Not too many bells & whistles, just a simple responsive design that adjusts for different screen sizes and devices. It is nearly done. There will be a few more past projects posted once we get all the pictures and details sorted, as well as a new project they've just begun. Two priorities for this one: Showcase services and projects to attract new clients; Display documents and site drawings for prospective clients and subcontractors. Up next: Marketing Materials.

Proud to announce that Charles Creative has officially joined the Sherman Oaks Chamber of Commerce. Look out for me at any number of committee meetings, and if I can manage it, maybe even the occasional mixer. Really looking forward to connecting with all of the talented and motivated business owners in our area.

"Maya and Sparky", the first adventure from Time Bean Co is now online. Time Bean Co is a story series targeted to elementary-aged children, with complex subject matter that deals with grief, loss, and other challenges. The stories are co-authored by a licensed marriage and family therapist. Timebean.co is built on a responsive Wordpress theme with some light modifications, with more advanced integrations planned for the future (no pun intended). This project also includes character and graphic design. Look for more on Time Bean soon.

Postcards and business cards for NancySites.com. We are using the postcards in combination with an Adwords campaign, targeting potential referral sources for client's private practice. Having used the advertising platforms on LinkedIn, Facebook, Bing/Yahoo, and Google, I am interested to do a cost-per-referral analysis including the postcards when the campaign concludes. Starting cost-per-click on the social networks exceeds that of a postcard (with stamp), and it takes roughly 3 clicks via Adwords to equal one card. Though it takes more time to fill in a postcard, the personal touch can be invaluable. If you know your target market, it's worth considering. I'll keep you posted on how it goes. Shout out to Moo_com for doing a great job with this batch.
