We work with non-profit organizations and small businesses all across America. How can we help you grow using the internet super-highway?
New Tech Network
Dotgarden built this robust website for New Tech Network. We consulted on the wire framing and design stages. This site was built using Drupal open source software. Interactive maps, Salesforce and video playback. News, blog, directory of schools. link
Liz Kinder Ceramics
Functioning as an online gallery, this site showcases the artist’s stunning pottery to galleries and prospective buyers. Collateral design elements are deliberately restrained to allow the pottery to take center stage. link
Dotgarden designed and built this site for Next Eats, a nutritious employee food delivery service in the SF Bay Area.
“Our renovated website enables Pinebrook to maximize the capability of the internet as a cost-effective tool for online marketing and web-based fundraising” said Bob Jacobs, Executive Director. “It doesn’t hurt that the new site is very pleasing to the eyes, easy to navigate, and truly interactive.” Pinebrook had a fixed budget with great need to have more control over their web presence. We created a new visual design and set up a content management system for them so they can update the site themselves.
Dotgarden created this site for writer, performer John Vlahides. The site uses a wordpress as a content management system and is completely updateable by the client. link
Dotgarden created the visual design, user interface and tons of custom programming for this site.

The site uses a custom content management system and is completely updateable by Gaia Herbs staff.
Dotgarden built this site for Vibrant Planet based on specs from their designer. It’s built using Expression Engine CMS and Vibrant Planet can update the site themselves. link
Best in Show
“Dotgarden was instrumental in helping us get our website to the next level,” says company co-founder Richard Shiu. Yes indeedy. What started out as a five-page Starter Package soon morphed into a full-fledged e-commerce site with client content management.
“It’s a more dynamic web site when you have more control internally,” says Fruit Guy Chris Mittelstaedt. And control they got (in addition to a delicious new design, of course): e-commerce, a content management system, and automated email capabilities. link
Curve Magazine was our first web client! We grew their website to include articles from the magazine, classified advertising, online community and e-commerce. A custom content management system was built for this site. link
Tara Mateik, Artist site
We’ve been working with artist Tara Matiek for years. This is a more recent site built in WordPress. Tara can update all aspects of the site, including slideshows, news, videos, etc. link
C5 Children’s School
Dotgarden designed and built C5 Children’s school site on a tight budget. C5 Staff is able to update the pages by logging into an easy to use content management system. A big part of our work for C5 is behind the scenes, with a communication system for parents and teachers to communicate effectively about the children and the school day. link
Mark Gibson Consulting
A minimalist design was delivered to us to create cross browser compliant web 2.0 pixel perfect code. We used a font replacement technology (Cufon) that allowed us to not use Flash. (It had to work perfectly on the iphone, too.) Was a fun and challenging project. link
Mariposa Gardening needed a current, easily editable website where they could upload images of their beautiful designs, incorporate slideshows and connect with potential clients on social media all on a small budget. link
Laura Fraser, LCSW
Functioning as an online business card, a place where potential clients can find out more about a potential therapist. Laura’s site is built using WordPress and Laura is able to edit the content herself. link
