We were so pleased to create a bright, user-friendly website for Sparkling Clean, a small business that supports ecologically responsible domestic cleaners. We built the site in Drupal, a modern Content Management System that allows the site's owner to easily update and customize content herself.
Sparkling Clean refers cleaners who use non-toxic cleaning products rather than toxic chemicals....

T324′s long-time client 99 Cents Only Stores knew they wanted to update their site to a responsive design, so it looks as great on smartphones and tablets as it does in a desktop browser.
The timing was perfect, because as T324 completed the new design, Google quietly revealed that they will soon be penalizing sites that aren't optimized for a positive smartphone experience.

Another recently completed T324 website design!
Harold E. Burton needed a basic site with nice slideshows to show off his custom plumbing work.
We built Harold a user-friendly Drupal site with a home page, about page, services page, locations page and contact page.

"All I wanted to do was order a pizza, and I couldn't find the phone number." said T324's owner David Daniels.
He was hoping to call directly to the Albany location of a popular local pizza company, and when he loaded the company's site on his phone, he couldn't find it.

Doc Brown would have loved Inventables. The Chicago-based "marketplace for technology and materials for developers and designers" sells everything from Sugru (air-curing silicon molding putty that's all the rage with geeks) to circuit board blanks.

Even though MakerBots have pushed development and adoption of consumer 3D printing, they have a built-in braking speed: their looks. A classic MakerBot Replicator looks like it belongs in a hackerspace or a high-school shop class; it looks feral. You wouldn't put one in a corner suite.
