Client: Navajo Nation EPA Superfund Program
Project Description: The Navajo Nation EPA Superfund Program knew that their website could be much more efficient in providing folks with official forms, documents and information but no one knew how to update their old website or even what server it was on. We set them up with a new hosting, a Wordpress site and training so they could get on with the very important business of cleaning up a long history of industrial waste mismanagement on their beautiful and sacred land.
Client: Paul Allen Green Built Homes
Project Description: America's largest builder of LEEDS, HERS & Energy Star rated houses was in need of a marketing overhaul that included a new logo and website for starters. They needed consistency in their graphic materials that could sustain their overall marketing strategy. From billboard advertising, to pub ads to on-going web needs, we've been there. Alto Design is proud to serve the National Association of Home Builders Research Center's top Gold Certified Builder in the United States.
Project Description: Albuquerque guitar maven Stan Burg wanted an upgrade from a nice but outdated website with the potential for e-commerce, analytics and more. Oh, and to borrow a luthiers term, with a few more "appointments".

HTML 5 Inspiration

Low and behold, the paragon of silky smooth animation turned out to be good ole HTML, er HTML 5 actually. Jongmin Kim created this Bauhausy-titled collection of interactive experiences in HTML 5, giving us a glimpse of the possibilities and power of the medium.
