Our Newest Project – Creative Stone Designs

The latest project we are working on is for Creative Stone Designs. This initial concept has proven to be very challenging so far. The site will need to be heavy in imagery and the style will also need to reflect what their business primarily does. My strategy will be a solid combination of images with just enough text to tell about their core business. They have done many projects around the area and this Web site needs to reflect the work that they have done. The site will be clearly navigable by the user that will easily take anyone to where they want to be from any page. With the use of javascript and css I will use techniques to take the image galleries to the next level.
