Comics For Collectors

Comics For Collectors received a complete website makeover in a matter of weeks. What was previously a series of static, hard-to-maintain pages was transformed into a dynamic, easily maintained site.

A password-protected content management interface makes it easy for the CFC staff to make inventory updates faster and easier than ever before. All menus and product categories are also customizable.

Clingen Quest Restoration has served numerous clients in the Northeast including furniture dealers, private antique collectors, and museums, restoring fine antiques to their original beauty while conserving the integrity of the pieces.

Spirited Crafts

The flexible/customizable shopping cart used in this site was written in Perl from scratch.

Chad Collyer

Chad Collyer was, at one time, one of the most successful independent professional wrestlers. He has wrestled the world over and is frequently employed by the biggest promotions in the United States and Japan.

His official website was another example of a site created to be easily maintained by someone with no programming knowledge whatsoever. As such, Chad was able to update his site with the latest news, even when on the road. He retired and took the site offline in 2014.
