Valerie Saalbach is a singer, voice teacher, and composer and she was one of our first clients. After five years, Val’s site needed a major update. The old site was not mobile friendly. When we built it, mobile-friendly sites were in their infancy and really not necessary. They were often a stripped down text only version of the full site. In some cases, they were even separate sites. So, in 2011, we didn’t worry about it.
When Valerie came to me a few weeks ago needing a few updates, I suggested a new look and feel. We kept the color scheme of black, white, and red, but instead of the old “heavy” black background from 2011, we updated to a nice clean white background with black and charcoal accents and her logo in red and black. Overall, this was an easy project because Valerie was quite happy with the function and form of the old site. We only changed the “dress” this site was wearing. While the logo and look and feel are slightly different, the content received only minor updates. This site is now mobile friendly and ready for another 5 or more years of service.
