Web Sites

Carolyn Lee Jones

Carolyn Lee Jones is a talented vocalist from Texas who performs hits from classic jazz to vintage pop.

We completed this project with our associate Lesley J. Vander Welle over at Elle Jay Inc.. The development and design of Carolyn’s new site offers easy reading and navigation across all devices. A music player provides snippets of popular tracks for new visitors to enjoy. Carolyn’s calendar is easy to update and archives past performances automatically, while the EPK/Press Kit is complete and concise, offering booking agents everything they need from promotion to stage plot. The addition of Carolyn’s bright new professional photography makes this site “sing” and mirrors Miss Jones’ vitality.

Paul Taylor

Paul Taylor is an international recording saxophonist based out of Las Vegas, Nevada.

In August of 2016, Paul needed an updated, contemporary website in advance of the release of his latest album, Countdown. Collaborating with our talented designer and project coordinator, Lesley J. Vander Welle at Elle Jay Inc., we quickly went to work producing a site that perfectly complemented Paul’s new album artwork by Melissa Castro.

The site was ready on time for Countdown’s September release. It is fully responsive across all mobile devices and allows Paul to easily maintain a calendar of his upcoming gigs.

Rob Straby

Rob Straby is a professor at Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ontario where he teaches the Career Development Practitioner Program. He also works directly with clients in his own successful online career coaching firm.

Rob needed a new web site to refresh his brand and his career coaching practice. Working with Lesley Vander Welle at Elle Jay Inc., we developed a modern, fully responsive, easily updated site that clearly represents Rob’s firm. The project included video interviews with Rob as we developed the site’s content and helped to focus the Straby.com brand.

In-House ECM Development: More Trouble Than It’s Worth

MES Hybrid Document Systems is a consulting firm focused on Enterprise Content Management. It helps organizations move toward the ideal of the paperless office by converting paper-based records into electronic documents, and then securely managing and storing that information.

The project required extensive research including interviews with MES’ North American sales staff and European development team, interviews with third-party Information Technology administrators and developers, a business needs analysis, a competitive analysis, and investigation into the complexities and requirements of legal discovery.
