Design Inside Radiate Digital

Introducing the New Look of Enon, Ohio

Enon, OH holds somewhat of a special place in the hearts of Radiate Digital.  After all, it’s where our very own Steve and Dana attended high school.  When they graduated, they probably had no idea they would one day design a brand new website for their town.

Truth be told, that was so long ago, they might not have even known what a website was at the time.  But I digress…

The Village of Enon was in need of a new website for a few reasons.  For starters, there were certain areas of the old site that were broken.  Navigation was also a serious problem.  Half the website could only be accessed by going to the correct sequence of pages.  They also wanted a  better way to post events.

And of course there’s the fact that the old website kind of looks like a video game menu from the late 90’s.

Enon is a great town with a lot of activities going on throughout the year.  We wanted to build them a website that truly showed all they had to offer, while accurately displaying the town’s charm.

 Though it might be a small town, there was a lot of information for this website to convey.  A big part of designing it was sorting where information would go, making the most important things the easiest to find, while trying not to hide the rest of the info.

Rather than hiding links on interior pages, we kept everything accessible from the drop down menus.  The end result was a website where people can easily find exactly what they’re looking for.

And like all of our websites built on the Radiate framework, the Village of Enon website is completely responsive, making it fully accessible from smartphones and tablets.

Are you ready to plan a trip to Enon, Ohio?  The people there are very nice.  One visit, and you may never leave.

LWS Proves that Taxes CAN be Fun!

“Taxes are fun”

– No one ever

Accounting offices tend to have a reputation of being pretty dry and, how shall we say, vanilla.

But LWS Tax isn’t like most tax and accounting firms.  They like to have fun.  They infuse their business with personality.  They make some pretty hilarious YouTube videos….

And they wanted a website that reflected that.

Their old website was like most accounting websites.  Plain and cluttered with an excessive amount of stock images.  As we were beginning the design, they had a photographer come in to shoot some more personable photos.

These pictures, along with bigger spacing and considerably less verbiage, made all the difference in the world.  See for yourself.

It took a little convincing on our part to get them to run with that main image, but it was worth it.  From the moment you see the site, you know that this accounting firm is different.  They’re real people who like to laugh and have fun like anyone else.

But as you scroll down, you see they know how to get down to business as well.  The website helps them to stand out, but it still successfully conveys what they do.  Ultimately, they were very happy with how the site represented them.

With tax season upon us, everyone is in a mad dash to get their finances sorted out.  If you want some help from highly skilled professionals who won’t bore you to death, you just might want to give LWS Tax & Accounting Services a call.

Did you watch their videos?  Do you have any suggestions for future parodies they could do?  We will gladly pass them on!
