Amy Stolls’ site is a great example of design collaboration, incorporating our own ideas and those of our customer. We developed a textured, vibrant, friendly looking layout for Amy, and then incorporated photos of stuffed animals she sent us to make each page’s heading a little bit different. It’s also as functional as it is beautiful. Every time Amy wants to post to her blog, she can automatically forward that post to her Twitter and Facebook accounts.
