High Demand for Vintage Travel Trailers Sparks the Creation of Retro Trailer Design

Glenwood Springs, CO (PRWEB) November 29, 2012

Recognizing the ever-growing number of vintage travel trailer enthusiasts, Vicky and Richard Nash have created a new venture called Retro Trailer Design based in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. This business will sell fully restored pre-1970 model campers and also work with clients to customize their own classic rigs.

The Retro Trailer Design showpiece is a16-foot long, red and white 1962 Shasta reminiscent of a diner, complete with a black-n-white checkerboard floor. Shasta is the Nashs favorite brand because of the iconic silver wings. When displayed at classic car shows throughout the West, this award-winning trailer is a true crowd-pleaser. The matching 1961 Ford Galaxie Sunliner convertible is attention getting as well. People just adore our Shasta and always ask if we have other trailers for sale, claims Vicky Nash, so we decided to set up shop and start selling.

Revitalizing these aluminum caravans calls for professional construction skills as well as a creative flare. When reconstructing a trailer, Richard Nash, a general contractor and luxury home builder for 35 years, utilizes his knowledge of architecture, electrical engineering, woodworking, plumbing, water systems, and metal work. Nash is a lifelong classic car buff so he also incorporates his auto mechanics expertise. The overall design theme comes from Vicky Nash who selects the color schemes and fabrics. Each trailer is unique in style, layout, and size.

Finding 50+ year old trailers is challenging in itself, as well as time consuming. The Nash network of friends spot prospective projects behind barns and along roadsides. Former hunting trailers have been purchased. Others have come from the local junk yard. Many units are in such disrepair that their owners just want someone to haul the eyesore away.

The Nashes have rescued derelict campers for over seven years. In the Retro Trailer Design workshop right now are a 1961 Shasta and a 1968 Serro Scotty Sportsman. Each will be dismantled and inspected for typical damage caused by water leaks and neglect. The most important task is to be sure the trailer is road worthy with a secure hitch and good tires. The wooden frame is repaired and new pieces replaced. Exterior aluminum is removed and used as a template to replicate the sides and rooftop. An extraordinary amount of time is devoted to polishing and cleaning. Original appliances and fixtures are reconditioned. Other pieces are reproduced so that everything is fully functional and in good working order. Some features are updated with more modern conveniences like swapping out the icebox with a refrigerator. Plumbing and electrical systems are upgraded. Cabinets are reinstalled. Gallons of shellac or paint coat the interior walls. Measurements are taken for brand new cushions and curtains. Nostalgic patterns are selected for the fabrics. Then it is time for the paint booth. Geometric designs and color combinations on the outside are preserved or recreated. Logo badges and decals are reapplied.

These mobile dwellings have many of the same components as a house, only on a smaller scale. Richard Nash says, I have built many high-end homes between Aspen and Glenwood Springs but I get more satisfaction from rebuilding these little trailers than from any of those multi-million dollar estates.

Depending upon the extent of the renovation, buyers can expect to pay between $ 10,000 and $ 20,000 to own one of these one-of-a-kind creations.

Atlanta-Based Agency Develops Google Docs-Based Methodology To Help Businesses Streamline Their HubSpot Web Design Process

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 30, 2012

All web design projects have at least 3 stages: strategy, design, and implementation. Often, companies start the graphics portion of their web design before addressing their messaging and determining how their website will help them capture more leads, often leading to higher costs, frustration, and an ineffective website.

One of the major web design pitfalls that we have seen, is the tendency of business owners and marketers to focus first on the look and feel of their website. said Eduardo Esparza, president of Market 8, this only leads to countless revisions, increased design costs, and ineffective websites that do not support sales growth.

Last December of 2011, Market 8 launched a series of web design templates for the HubSpot CMS and a methodology that helps companies understand their messaging and their lead conversion triggers.

Companies adopting HubSpot and immersing themselves in inbound marketing, need to be thinking about how to generate leads through their website. Our methodology for HubSpot web design forces companies to think about what they want to say and how leads will convert; we then help them execute their message and their lead capture process with custom graphics, custom calls to action buttons and a series of web page templates that they can reuse as they create their content, said Esparza.

Market 8s HubSpot web design is facilitated by a proprietary, easy to use Google Docs-based Implementation Workbook that allows efficient collaboration between clients and the Market 8 team.

Our process is designed to facilitate collaboration, Esparza said, sometimes we see up to 6 people working and discussing different aspects of messaging, content and conversion, simultaneously, in a single Google spreadsheet; this eliminates e-mailing information, version control, and allows for quicker implementations and a better end result, every single time.

Market 8s hubspot web design templates have a starting price of $ 950 and are available in 4 different layout structures and implementation levels.

About Market 8

Market 8 is an inbound marketing and branding agency that helps clients increase revenue and return on marketing investments by focusing on strategies that are fundamental, effective and measurable. A fully integrated agency, Market 8 specializes in marketing strategy, website development, interactive design, content creation, video marketing, and marketing analytics including specific prospect and lead tracking.

Online Yearbook Design Software Advances To New Heights

(PRWEB) May 08, 2012

Online yearbook software, EDOnline has hit a milestone with its 50,000th page created this week. EDOnline was just launched for the 2011-2012 school year by Entourage Yearbooks. “The popularity of the online design software has really exceeded our expectations in its debut season,” said Entourage Yearbooks President, Elias Jo. “We actually had 500% more schools want to use the program after viewing the demo than we had anticipated for this year. The feedback from the customers has been very encouraging.”

Yearbook Advisor, Nan Chorpsah of Venice High School speaks out about her experience with the EDOnline software and the Entourage website. “Keeping up with the digital times and using state-of -the-art online software, Entourage makes putting your book together easier than any other yearbook company,” said Chorpsah. “The online tools that Entourage provides give you extra time to be creative.”

The EDOnline software is based on professional design software such as Adobe InDesign, but is formatted especially for yearbooks. Entourage Yearbooks created EDOnline with the yearbook staff and yearbook advisor in mind. The software was designed to offer tools that a yearbook designer would need, not just a graphic designer. “The tools are easy to use. Compared to using software like InDesign, it is very easy to get novice students up to speed and producing fairly sophisticated pages,” said Yearbook Advisor, Diane Helfrich.

As customers started to use and explore the software’s features, more and more users became interested in working on the yearbook. “The collaborative features in the software make it ideal for large groups, or groups that are working from several locations,” said Jo. “The entire Entourage online toolset drives collaboration into the yearbook project creating well rounded yearbooks, and encouraging more participation in the book itself. The big picture results of this is the influx of users that we experienced this season, not to mention huge growth in yearbook traditions across the country.”

Some of the features of EDOnline that are inspiring yearbooks include:

Online Page Design Tools – The online page design structure allows for large groups to all work on the yearbook at the same time. Yearbook pages can be designed using hundreds of pre-designed yearbook templates, from scratch, or a mixture of both. Custom templates can be created and saved for future use. Covers can be created online as well, picking from the online cover gallery or creating a custom cover.

Staff Management Tools- The Entourage Yearbooks website allows the creation and assignment of tasks and deadlines to all the members of the yearbook staff. Yearbook Advisors and Editors basically have a yearbook command center at their fingertips to layout the yearbook ladder online, assign tasks to the staff, give feedback through messages and more.

Online Yearbook and Ad Sales – Entourage offers a collaborative system to help develop the best marketing plan for individual schools including online book sales and online ad sales. Yearbook budget planning tools lead customers through preparing pricing for their ads and yearbook sales.

Online Proof Books – EDOnline features instant online proofing. Users can view a flip book style proof of their yearbook as they build it. This feature makes it easy to share progress with school administrators and to edit the book.

Year to Year Roll Over – EDOnline allows users to save their page templates, finalized pages, and pictures for next year. Making changes to existing templates is a great way for schools to get a head start on next year’s yearbook.

Web Design Company New York, Trance Web Design Launches Flash Banner Services

New York (PRWEB) May 08, 2012

Web Design Company NY specializes in developing quality driven and spectacular looking flash banners, flash templates, flash intros, logos, and slideshows for websites. These can also be used or placed as an ad on any other website. To make flash banners even more engaging, they use animations as well as a host of other flash compatible scripts. This would make the banner visually outstanding thus attracting more viewers and traffic to a website.

The development and implementation of flash banners on websites has grown drastically over the past few years. This is because when compared to a staticdead looking banner, flash banners are more exciting, compelling, and eye catching. A comparison would reveal that flash banners are much more interactive and can highlight key messages or story board in a more effective manner. With the introduction and integration of flash players, the inability of Google to index flash has been eradicated.

By incorporating flash designs into a corporate website, or to host it as an ad on any third party website, the organization can effectively showcase products and services in a more propounding manner. With a flash banner on the homepage of a website, not only does it adds grace to its overall look and feel, but will also increase the chances of visitors to stay more engaged. Animated banners are even better as they act as an influential tool arousing a sense of curiosity in the minds of viewers.

At Trance Web Design, web design company New York, they have the right set of skills and expertise to develop all kinds of flash enabled banners as well as other marketing tools that would leverage the potential and capability of any website. They can help enhance the visibility of the website by embedding flash logos, intros and banners into a website. For your convenience, they offer the following flash based tools and products:

Yell Client or New Business? Low Cost Web Sites from Kent Web Design

Dover, Kent, UK (PRWEB UK) 21 May 2012

The most outstanding highlights of the web design offer includes the domain name registration, hosting with no recurring annual charges, 100 industry marketing links and a press release for the first month.

Chris Longley, owner of Web Design Kent confirms, “We wanted to put together a Yell beating package. Some of our most recent clients are from Yell, unhappy at the design, service and ongoing costs. We will not be charging annual hosting fees or domain renewal costs at any point, so that amounts to a considerable saving over time.”

The low cost template based system offers a multitude of pre designed templates offering different layouts and colour schemes. There is also the potential to add bespoke programming features if required. Primarily aimed at local, regional search engine results with its geo targeting page creation options. Clients are provided with a secure login address to the website back end. Adding new pages of text, images or video is a breeze with all instruction included on the set up pages. When completed, the new pages are simply published to be viewed as part of the website.

The Kent firm also offer its own search engine optimisation services, ecommerce solutions and copywriting for advertising or press releases. Recently, it has great success with Dentists transferring from Yell. The websites for dentists design and associated local marketing has won praise from its newest customers.

“Most of our clients want something bespoke or individual” Mr Longley states. “However, we do get a lot of enquiries for low cost websites and our professional templated system can provide that. It is an ideal starting point to get your message out on the web.”

A further benefit is no technical knowledge is required. Most low cost website creation packages require a user account, billing options and some learning curve of the whole online system. The simple templated system on offer is all about adding the content and publishing it only.

The Kent company, who also offer Search Engine Optimisation for Kent companies, claims that the home page of most websites will out rank a buried directory listing. Directories are usually used as content fillers by the search engines when there isn`t enough optimised websites to fill the top ten results. Good website content, properly optimised page titles and a Google Maps listing is all is required, without paying for recurring advertising fees for local search results.
