Today, we have launched a redesigned and developed web site for talented Los Angeles fashion designer Natalie Martin.
We designed and built Natalie's first web site back in 2011, and were thrilled to be working closely with her again this time around. This web site was built on the Shopify platform, allowing her some great tools for product and inventory management, and a solid ecommerce system for processing orders.
Rihanna, Heidi Klum, Cameron Diaz, and more have all been photographed recently wearing Natalie Martin clothing. It's an exciting time for Natalie and we're thrilled to be along for the ride!

We're very excited to welcome back our good buddy Mike Farris! Mike's an award-winning gospel singer from Nashville who has a new record, "Shine For All The People," that just came out on September 16. This was the third site that we've designed and built for Mike since 2007. We had a tight two week window to get this site designed, built, tested and launched to coincide with the release of Mike's new record. This essentially a one page site that aggregates all of Mike's various social feeds, videos, tour dates, an online store, and some background information. We also got Mike setup with Wordpress on the backend, so he can update the site himself from wherever he may be.
This record is a great Kickstarter success story. 233 fans helped Mike blow through his $10,000 goal on Kickstarter to raise $27,738 to fund the recording of "Shine For All The People." So cool.
"Shine For All The People" can be ordered from Amazon's mp3 store for $8.99. It's worth every penny; an instant gospel & soul classic. Check it out.

This project included a complete redesign, responsive, mobile-friendly development, and Wordpress Content Management, to allow Winding Trails staff to update web site content themselves.
June 4, 2014We're very happy to be working again with longtime client and super talented fashion designer Natalie Martin on web strategy, a redesign, and ecommerce using Shopify! This is an important point in Natalie's evolution online, and for us, too. We built the original/existing version of Natalie's site, and it's powered by a custom-built ecommerce system and content management system on the backend. Though it has served her well over the years, we've arrived at the point where it's important to realize when someone has built a better mousetrap. Shopify has done just that; their services and native apps are a perfect fit for Natalie's changing and growing web site and ecommerce needs. We're thrilled to not only be a part of the evolution with her, but to be able to help facilitate it.
June 2, 2014We're very happy to be doing a responsive rework of www.kidsmentalhealthinfo.com. For the most part, we'll be keeping the existing look intact as we make the site more phone-friendly. We'll also be implementing Wordpress on the backend, so the client can update content themselves.
May 1, 2014When our client Colonial Bronze came to us and told us their Cusalus web site (not one of our sites) got hacked, we had to act fast. Instead of digging through antiquated code trying to find a needle in a haystack, we got to work in a hurry and rebuilt their existing web site responsively using twitter's bootstrap framework, keeping the look and functionality intact. In addition, we integrated the newly built web site with Wordpress, allowing them to manage their web site content themselves. The result? They were offline for a very short period of time, and are now back and better than ever. The web site is built on sturdy, secure, modern code and they're in the driver's seat when it comes to updating things.
April 28, 2014We're very excited to welcome our newest client, William Kramer & Associates. A leader in high-quality loss adjustment services, with offices in 5 states and Puerto Rico, WKA has come to us in need of a refresh of their existing web site. We'll be redesigning the site, providing a much more user-friendly, modern and stylish approach, while building the site responsively to accomodate mobile devices. We'll then be handing off the framework for the site to WKA's internal IT team, to integrate into their existing Sharepoint setup.

The State of Connecticut is in the process of developing a plan to improve children’s mental health services and systems across the state. We were approached by Child Health and Development Institute of Connecticut, Inc. to design and build Plan4children.org, a web site aimed at raising awareness and soliciting feedback from the public, sharing ideas and experiences related to children's mental health issues.
This project came together in just a few weeks, as time was of the essence. With the first public forum just a few weeks out, they needed a web site that looked and functioned great, and that they could update themselves as necessary. The responsive web site we designed and built for them is powered on the backend by Wordpress.
March 6, 2014We recently completed work on a logo redesign and custom brochure design for Aquasent, a startup that delivers fast, reliable subsea WiFi in a manner which has not previously been achieved.

March 4, 2014Today marks the launch of a new web site for the John Paul II International Film Festival, held yearly in Miami, FL. The festival takes after John Paul II’s unifying human rights values.

January 8, 2014We are pleased to announce that long-time client, Farmington-based Winding Trails has contracted Crucial to redesign and redevelop their existing web site. Though the existing site has served them well for the past 6 years, Winding Trails has decided that in order to keep in line with the exciting developments at their facilities, as well as to keep pace with the constantly-changing technology landscape, a new site will help propel them into the future. We couldn't agree more, and we're excited to help them get there! This project for Winding Trails will include a complete redesign, responsive, mobile-friendly development, and Wordpress Content Management. Stay tuned!
