Here's just a few of our recent website clients and their stories:

Greenscape Gardens

Greenscape Gardens

What started as a facelift for a Frontpage website became an entire new look, feel and business success for this well established Garden Center.

Next-Step-Up introduced a contemporary new logo design and color palette. It was effectively applied to outdoor and indoor signs, business cards, marketing tools, and the new website.

Larimore House Plantation

Larimore House Plantation

When a historic site used for weddings needed a fresh and appealing approach to twenty-first century brides, the owners of The Larimore House carefully chose Next-Step-Up Communications to create the new logo and entire new look for the place. Signs, brochures, displays, presentation packets used dynamic photography, picturesque wording and classic design to capture the special setting.

Renew Blinds by A&G Ultrasonics Website designed by Next-Step-Up!

Renew Blinds by A&G Ultrasonics

The state-of-the-art ultrasonic cleaning of blinds is the latest in technology. Greg and Anna Stygar, owners of the company, chose Next-Step-Up to design their website to complement their other marketing tools and logo design. It was important to bring the site live within a few weeks to correspond with yellow page advertising and other campaigns. We met the tight deadline and exceeding the client's expectations!

Dowco Enterprises

Dowco Enterprises, Inc.

This well established lawncare and landscaping company tried for years to design and maintain their own website. With software limitations, the old site couldn't manage the high quality images necessary to showcase the excellence of full-service work provided by Dowco. Next-Step-Up came in with a whole new design including rollover images for the navigation. The fresh, bright and very readable site informs clients of Dowco services and offers plenty of advice and tips for home lawn and landscaping care.

Next-Step-Up Designed Gowan Printing

Gowan Printing

With a long-standing reputation for excellence, Gowan Printing was cautious about allowing just anyone to design their website. Dennis Gowan wanted someone who knew exactly what they do and how they do it, so Next-Step-Up was brought in to do the job. We designed the colorful look, developed the "go for the gold with Gowan" theme, took some of the photographs and wrote the content for the site.

Lisa Knows Tea Website Designed by Next-Step-Up!

Lisa Knows Tea - Lisa Richardson, Inc.

Lisa Richardson needed a website to inform her national audience about her speaking, training and marketing services for tea rooms, hotels and conferences. Next-Step-Up created the confident and sophisticated logo design, then designed an energetic yet easy-to-read website using professional photos and relevant content about the specialty tea industry. We included some copywriting and a full stationery design in the package.

Next-Step-Up Designed Lighthouse Realty Website

Lighthouse Realty - RJM Investments, Inc.

Celebrating their 10th anniversary in business, RJM Investments needed a fresh, new look and a website to highlight its properties for sale and for lease. Next-Step-Up created the new logo, designed other marketing tools including yard signs and business cards, and created the new website for the growing company. We maintain the site with new content and updated property photos for a monthly maintenance fee.

Next-Step-Up Designed Fuller Expressions

Fuller Expressions Photography

As a busy, wedding and portrait photographer, Ken Fuller started his own website design using HTML coding a few years ago. It did not showcase his quality of work nor his creative expertise in photography. Fuller Expressions came to Next-Step-Up for a whole new look and a memorable impact on the internet. We started with a fresh, new logo design and positioning statement, then carried through a multi-level website design using the outstanding photographic works of Fuller Expressions to create a warm and informative website.

Grow Excellence

Grow Excellence

As a horticulturalist and educator, MaryAnn Fink needed a creative look and marketing strategy. Next-Step-Up proposed the business name as well as the domain name. The Grow Excellence website also features the talents of Cindy Gilberg, a landscape designer & consultant, and Judy Moskoff, a local radio personality and event emcee. Together, the team of garden experts promote environmentally supportive resources, valuable information, and industry related news and links.

Next-Step-Up Designed Hartleys Naturals

Hartley's Natural Skin Care Products

After a friend volunteered to design their initial website, Tisha & Grant Hartley realized they needed a whole new look to tie in with their ideas for packaging their homemade, all natural skin care products. With the assignment to use a Stainglass logo treatment, Next-Step-Up recreated the graphic from the original site, updated it and customized the typography to be more appealing and memorable. We created the entire website using a consistency to the decorative style and added an affordable Paypal shopping cart to enable online transactions.

Next-Step-Up Designed E-Administrative

E-Administrative Business Support Solutions

As an administrative support service, Professional Administrative Resources re-engineered itself to meet the "virtual assistants" advantages for entrepreneurs and small businesses in a broader geographical area via the internet. Next-Step-Up helped rename the company and designed the entire new image including the logo, marketing tools, and website design.

Next-Step-Up Designed Getting Places

Getting Places Counseling & Consulting

Getting Places is the website for Margaret Cook, a Counselor and Life Coach. Next-Step-Up designed the logo, then initiated template-based system in 2005 for the client to maintain the content and updates. However, we renovated the entire design in early 2006, rewrote the majority of the content, and created a more unique, customized website to meet the needs of the diverse clientele.

Next-Step-Up Designed Rhonda Jean Photos

Rhonda Jean Photos

Rhonda Pfeifer is an enthusiastic and gifted photographer with a busy wedding and portrait business. She wanted a unique logo using attractive colors and she wanted a website that showcases her distinctive talent. By using a faster bandwidth for her hosting, Next-Step-Up created a quick loading mini-portfolio design on many of her main pages and helped develop all other marketing and presentation tools.
