New Website, Old Hilliardfest Art & Street Fair

Old_Hilliardfest_Art_&_Street_Fair_-_2014-03-21_21.41.04We have been working with the Old Hilliardfest Art & Street Fair since 2012.

Old Hilliardfest is a street fair that takes place in downtown Hilliard, Ohio on Main Street each fall on the second Saturday of September. Old Hilliardfest includes a selection of food vendors, various organizations and small businesses with information booths, a number of artisans with merchandise for sale, and several venues with live music. The festival lasts throughout the day. Old Hilliardfest is a non-profit organization with 501(C)(4) tax status. The organization consists entirely of volunteers.

In 2012 we quickly threw together a Drupal website in time for the 2013 festival. Drupal is a free and open-source content management framework written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public License.It is used as a back-end framework for at least 2.1% of all websites worldwide, ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites including whitehouse.gov and data.gov.uk. It is also used for knowledge management and business collaboration.

In preparation for this year’s festival, we wanted to help Old Hilliardfest spruce up the website and make it a little more esthetically “cool looking”. We developed a WordPress site for themand it’s now live. WordPress is another free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL, which runs on a web hosting service. Similar to Drupal, WordPress features include a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by more than 18.9% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013. WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites.

Some of the features of the new website include a rather typical blog, a page with testimonials, a section of the website for frequently asked questions, a page with a Google Map and contact form, tons of photos, etc.

Welcome To Our New Website!

Welcome to our new company website!

So, we created a new website to showcase our products and services.

New Website, Columbus Wedding Videography

New Website, Columbus Wedding VideographyColumbus Wedding Videography is a Columbus, Ohio based company that also has customers located throughout the Mid-West and have a combined 20+ years of video production experience. They primarily provide Wedding Videography services to their clients and have made it their focus to provide the utmost excellence in customer service. They offer a wide variety of Wedding Video Production services, including: Engagement Films, Pre-Wedding Day Interview Films, Wedding Ceremony Films, Wedding Reception Filming, Same-Day-Edit Films, 8mm or 16mm Wedding Films, and Other Customized Services. They understand that each bride and groom have a different vision for their wedding day; and though they produce wedding videos, their real job is to accurately capture that vision on video for family and friends to share for lifetimes to come.

The Columbus Wedding Videography website was built on the WordPress platform. WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL, which runs on a web hosting service. Features include a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by more than 18.9% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013. WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites.

For this particular web development project we chose WordPress because it is suited best for blog-style websites. However, for more complex projects, we often use a more configurable CMS, known as Drupal, which is another open-source CMS. It is used as a back-end framework for at least 2.1% of all websites worldwide, ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites including whitehouse.gov and data.gov.uk.

New ARTS Production Services Website

New ARTS Production Services WebsiteproVanceTek created a new website for ARTS Production Services, a small production company in Central Ohio. They’re located in Hilliard, but serve customers throughout the state, with a philosophy to keep cost low and deliver a quality product to our customers. The company started up with friends from high school, post college, and off working in various fields of the industry, who decided that we wanted to work together, instead of scattered all over the country working for other companies. Ergo, the creation of ARTS Production Services. ARTS specialize in audio, lighting, and video production for local live events.

The new website was built on the WordPress content management platform. WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time. The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” — we’d love you to join the family.

proVanceTek also uses the Drupal content management system for various web development projects. Drupal is much more configurable and designed to be used for web development projects in a much larger scale. For this one, however, there was nothing too complicated involved that wasn’t achievable using WordPress. For blog-style websites, WordPress is perfect.
