Hopkins Fundraising Consulting - www.HopkinsFundraising.com

The Midwest's premier fundraising organization needed a website that reflected the high quality of their company and made them easy to find on the search engines.

Their website brings in new clients, expresses their professionalism and showcases the numerous organizations they have helped.

"Kallen Web Design is easy to work with and very professional in assisting their clients. I’ve been very pleased with the look of my website and I get positive comments on it all the time."
Keith Hopkins, Managing Director

World of Floors - 19 Flooring Retail Stores in 3 States - www.WorldOfFloors.com

This multi-state flooring retail business needed a site to reflect the high quality of the products they sell. Our new site was intended to replace a poorly done site that was harming their reputation

Their demographic was women in their 40's+, and the colors and layout were designed to appeal to this group. The result was a site that drew much new business to their 19 stores in three states.

Several years later the chain was bought out and the new management had their in-house staff create a new home-grown website, so this thumbnail is no longer active.

Venlo Place and Tioga Park Student Luxury Apartments - www.VenloPlace.com

We have been partnering with Phoenix Properties, a prominent West Michigan Property Management company, on their main website for several years.

When they brought two Big Rapids student luxury apartment complexes on-board, they asked us to create a two-complex website.

The vision for the site is to say "youthful, fun, student oriented, luxurious, and safe".

The site features online maintenance requests and a link to a "pay your rent online" service.

Genesis Molding - Plastics Manufacturing - www.GenesisMolding.com

This Indiana manufacturer had a poor quality website that did not reflect the quality of their product or their professionalism.

Working entirely via phone and email, we passed design options by them and they chose the one that reflected their company persona best. Using their content (logo, words and photos), we created a site which demonstrates their quality and is easy to navigate.

We also modified a demo video they had, resizing it for viewing by customers with either slow or fast internet, and made it available on their site.

United Nursing Services - Home Healthcare Agency - www.UnitedNursing.com

Kalamazoo Michigan's longest established Home Health Care Agency needed a website to illustrate their professionalism and explain their variety of services, driving potential clients to pick up the phone and call for more information.

Total time from receiving their words and pictures to the completed site was about 10 days.

"The professionalism and support you provided during the process of development is greatly appreciated. We have received many compliments and are very pleased with the final product. Thank you again for the superb website." -Susan Molenaar, RN, Executive Director

Haun Publishing Company of Texas - www.HaunPublishingCompany.com

This Texas publisher of Christian literature found us on Google and called for help. They have been printing and mailing out 20,000 catalogs every year. They needed a website that their customers could visit, avoiding the huge expense of printed catalogs.

We photographed and input the thousands of items from their catalog, putting it all on line for a fraction of the cost of printing and mailing catalogs.

"We are absolutely delighted with the website. What a dynamic duo you are!"

University of Michigan Flint Office of Student Life - www.umflint.edu/studentlife

The University of Michigan at Flint is using a Content Management System (CMS) that severely restricts any sort of creative web design. Frustrated, the Director of the Office of Student Life contacted us.

We discussed this with their webmaster, and then, on our own time, learned the in's and out's of the content management system.

Kathleen then created some colorful and creative web code which works perfectly within their system! All the staff is very pleased!

Nina Kallen, Attorney at Law - Boston - www.KallenLawyer.com

Click to visit Nina E. Kallen Attorney at Law
This independent Attorney needed a site to advertise her services and showcase her various writings. Total time from start to going live on the web was about two weeks.

The site has excellent search engine placement (as do all of our sites), and we also include a free hit tracker so our clients can tell how visitors find their site.

She reports getting numerous inquiries every week from clients who find her through Google, Yahoo and MSN Live search engines.

WMU Student Apartments from Scheffers Management - www.scheffersmgt.com

Click to visit Sheffers ManagementThe owners of several student rental properties wanted to provide all the information students would need to rent an apartment. They also wanted a site that reflected the high quality of their properties.

Working with their photos and text, we created a site that provided visitors all the needed information and had a fun look to it as well.

Within a few weeks of going live with this site, all their properties were fully rented!

The WMU Music Department's Trombone Program

The Director of the Western Michigan University Music Department's Trombone Program desired a website that portrayed the high quality of their program.

As a smaller program, they did not have much funding. Still we were able to work within their limited budget to create a really terrific website!

The site includes everything needed for the faculty members to do updates on their own. Another win-win for our client and Kallen Web Design!

Marké - Designs in Stainless Steel

Click to Visit Marke Designs in Stainless Steel The owners of this site had purchased a web site package from another design company but the end result lacked the polished look needed to represent the highly artistic qualities of their product.

After one week of working together we delivered a redesign that reflects the artistic beauty of their unique merchandise.

Unfortunately the company has gone out of business so the site you see is an archive of the original.

Skyline String Quartet Chicago - Chicagoland Quartet - www.SkylineStringQuartet.com

The prominent Skyline String Quartet, who perform in weddings, receptions, parties and other events in the Chicagoland area, wanted more contacts from the search engines.

All of their gigs were from referrals, so their web site's new first page search engine results has really boosted their contacts.

Their site reflects their professionalism and the high quality of their performances. They are very pleased with the site and the increase in their bookings that come through the site!

WMU MGRRE's Core Kids - University Department - www.wmich.edu/corekids

The Director of the Western Michigan University (WMU) MGRRE K-12 Education Program ("Core Kids") received a grant from the DTE Energy Foundation to make their Earth Science education materials available online to assist students and teachers.

Sticking with WMU's standard template, Kathleen helped them design the site to be easy to use for K-12 age children and also for teachers needing curriculum materials.

Kathleen also gave the Program Director training for doing most website updates!

Soga Japan International Center at WMU - www.wmich.edu/sogajapancenter

This Western Michigan University department needed a more professional and attractive website which also conformed to the WMU standard formatting. We quickly created a new masthead and menu system, then placed their content into it. Another Kallen Web site on time and on budget!

Note that Student Interns have modified the site since it was completed. The link and image to the left will take you to a recreation of our original site.

Gull Lake Michigan - Luxury Real Estate Listings - www.GullLakeMich.com

Click to visit Gull Lake, Michigan
A prominent Southwest Michigan Realtor wanted a web site to give her prime listings more exposure.

We consulted with her to determine what style and themes best reflected her business and created a site to reflect her personality and preferences.

Within a matter of a few weeks from start to finish, the site was bringing in new clients and new business!

Our client retired and this website is no longer active.

The Western Michigan University (WMU) Music Therapy Department

The Western Michigan University (WMU) Music Therapy Department is one of the most highly recognized Music Therapy programs in the nation.

However their website did not reflect the quality and professionalism of their program. The content (words, pdf files, other documents) was fine - but the site layout was not up to their professional standards (below left).

In a matter of less than a week, Kallen Web Design brought their site into the University Standard Template, created a Custom Masthead and Custom Splash Image Bar, brought all their words, pdf's and Docs over, added several new images, and then updated some of the content.

The Department Director is very pleased with the process and the results!

The total cost was only a little over half of his initial expectation!

Casa Mirador Bed and Breakfast, Puerto Vallarta Mexico - www.CasaMirador.net

Click to visit Casa Mirador Bed and Breakfast This resort owner had an out-of-date web site.

Working with their photos and tastes, we put together a great masthead and color scheme.

They have been so pleased they worked with us to develop another website for them as well. If you treat people right your business will naturally grow.

This was one of our earlier websites, and they sold the resort, so this site is no longer live.

College of Health and Human Services - Western Michigan University

Working closely with the new communications director for WMU's College of Heath and Human Services, we created a new site for this large division of the University.

Our work included bringing hundreds of pages into the standard University template with updated content and photos, while creating unique designs for each of the seventeen CHHS department and program subsites.

We then trained departmental staff so they could keep the site up-to-date without requiring regular assistance from Kallen Web Design.

John Hoerr - Internationally Recognized Labor Author - www.JohnHoerr.com

This internationally recognized author desired a web site to showcase his books and articles, and so colleagues looking for him on the web could find his contact information.

He desired a very straightforward, professional site without unnecessary graphics. He supplied the content (text) and we did the rest. It is now a top hit on the search engines for his keywords!

In 2008 we did a - beautiful and inexpensive complete site redo to promote his new novel.

WMU Comparative Religion Departmental Website - www.wmich.edu

This university department badly needed an updated site. After meeting with a group of five representatives from the department, we integrated their ideas into our design. We used some of their graphics and found many others to add to their theme. We also created links to Amazon.com so students could purchase books and the department would get a small commission.

The site has since been modified quite a lot by students and staff. It has evolved into something different from what we originally created for them so we removed the live link.

Saugatuck Hideaway Vacation Rentals - www.SaugatuckHideaway.com

This client owns a high-end vacation property rental business in Michigan. They felt their homegrown site needed a more professional look, and approached us for assistance. The client supplied the photographs and text for the site, then we developed a professional yet fun design to highlight each property.

Every property page contains a slide show so potential customers can see many photos of each cottage. There is also a link to a "specials" page, which they regularly update without any assistance.

Arcadia Dental of West Michigan - www.ArcadiaDental.com

This prominent dental office needed an upbeat but professional site to market his services to local university students. Students (and most people under 35) search Google before ever picking up the yellow pages.

This site encourages visitors to pick up the phone to make an appointment. He receives more contacts and more business because of his terrific website which is very highly ranked on google.

This link is no longer live due to management changes at the Dentist Office.

The Year in Weird - Book Promotion Site - www.theYearInWeird.com

A relative published a book and wanted a site to draw extra publicity to it. With our expertise in search engine optimization, he gets hundreds of hits a week from people searching for funny stories.

The site then leads them to amazon.com where they can purchase his book. Note that we also used his photos and text to create the book cover for publication.

WMU STEP - Grant Funded University Program - www.wmich.edu/step

in 2006, Kathleen, our owner and designer, directed a grant-funded program at Western Michigan University. The program needed a way to communicate to prospective and existing students and faculty.

This educational site contains an easily updated calendar, downloadable forms, a photo and video gallery, podcasts, and other helpful "content".

The site was redone by the current director in 2009, so this is no longer a live link.

Make A Difference - University Employee Recognition Program Site

Click to visit Western Michigan University Make A Difference

The design objective for this employee recognition program at Western Michigan University was to create a look and feel that was fun and professional.

We created animated buttons and incorporated a variation of the WMU logo. The site is crisp and clean and easy to navigate.

Proteos - Michigan BioTech Startup Company - www.Proteos.net

Click to visit Proteos The owners of this site, a Michigan biotech startup, needed a professional and informative site for marketing their company.

We incorporated their logo and color scheme, then finished the site by adding a simple but compelling Flash banner.

Recently the site was absorbed into the West Michigan Innovation Center site, so this is no longer a live link.

WMU Employee Dispute Resolution Services - www.wmich.edu/cedrs

Click to visit CEDRS We collected this Western Michigan University organization's existing materials (brochures, logos, posters, PowerPoint presentation), sketched out a site structure and discussed the owner's goals and target audience.

We created a masthead based on the agency's theme of reconciliation.

The site was required to be redone by WMU staff to be "more standard" in 2009, so this is no longer a live link.

West Michigan Appraisal Services - www.WestMichiganAppraisal.com

Click to visit West Michigan Appraisal Service, Inc.

This client needed a professional web site to refer their clients to for forms, coverage information, and the pricing of their services.

Instead of using office resources to send faxes and answer basic questions, they can now refer their customer inquiries right to their web site - saving them time and money!

Detroit Engaged Encounter Program - www.EngagedEncounterDetroit.com

The Eastern Michigan branch of a pre-marriage counseling organization wanted a website that reflected the beauty of marriage, and utilized their themes and logo. This site received many accolades for its beauty and message.

Later, due to changes in their organization, the Detroit branch was eliminated. The link and image to the left will take you to a recreation of our original site.

Trinity Vineyard Christian Fellowship - St. Charles, Illinois - www.TrinityVCF.org

Click to visit Trinity Vineyard Christian Fellowship
A church in St. Charles, IL, needed a web site that looked contemporary. Their previous site was text-dense and had all content on one long scrolling page, making it difficult to find information.

Like many Kallen Web Design sites, this site is designed so that our client can do updates themselves.

Stitching Memories Yarn Shop - www.StitchingMemories.com

Click to visit Stitching Memories
This site is one of the first sites Kathleen completed early into her post-graduate certification in communications from the Advanced Technology Center for New Media.

The yarn company has long since taken over the maintenance of this site and made many changes. This is merely an archive.

We keep it in our portfolio even though it does not reflect our current level of professional work, but it does show a simple text masthead, colorful, clean graphics and an emphasis on the class schedule, address and store hours. And it brings back happy memories.
