2017 Website Launch Roundup
2017 has been a busy year for Katy Dwyer Design. We’ve had lots of new and exciting things happening here, including a move to a new office and the addition of a design intern to our staff. October came quickly, so before we blink and it’s December, we thought we’d bring you some of our exciting website launches of the past year.
This Hudson Valley winery needed a new website that better represented their many offerings, including showcasing it’s wedding venue and selling their wines online. They even chose to put their best foot forward by having a photo shoot of their products with Surprise Photography. We always say: photos make (or break) a website!
Benedictine Health Foundation & Bike for Cancer Care
Katy Dwyer Design was chosen to help Benedictine Health Foundation redesign both their website and the Bike for Cancer Care Fundraiser website, with a specific goal to make the sites easier to navigate, and clarify the purpose of the foundation and fundraiser. KDD built two sites that reflect both the individual brands, but also have a clear connection between each other. The sites integrate with the foundation’s donation platform, and make showcasing upcoming events and past photo galleries easy.
Of all our website launches this year so far, Next Boutique was the only brand new website, as opposed to a redesign. The boutique women’s clothing store has been in downtown Kingston for over 25 years, so it was time to have an online presence. The site is brand-consistent, with a classic and timeless look and feel, and helps Next Boutique to showcase their brands, videos, and store information.
The former Dutchess Outreach site was difficult to update, and didn’t reflect the fresh, new ideas and community outreach happening at Dutchess Outreach. KDD designed a new site that is easy for the staff to update, showcases the many people DO has helped over the years, and the many meals they have served, and also needed to organize a lot of information into an easy to navigate website. Events, news, and a donation platform are also integrated.
