Kris Balch, President of VST, reached out to Goldlilys Media to inquire how to make their existing website easier to manage. At first, they wanted a way to keep track of users who download their files, have a login system and maybe create a cleaner interface for their online presence. Their requests seemed simple enough, until Goldlilys Media browsed their previous website.
What good is a design for if the functionality of a website is utterly frustrating to handle? Goldlilys Media balances the best of both worlds by integrating your unique design into a comprehensive Content Management System (CMS) software such as Drupal or Wordpress.
Depending on what your website needs, your business/organization and Goldlilys Media will have to discuss which of those two CMS platforms would make your site management simpler. If it is a more customized website with a complex back-end system such as e-commerce, videos & gallery interfaces, news sites, and any other media features you can think of, Goldlilys Media loves Drupal.
I create custom modules / plugins to make sure that all of your functionality needs are met. Whatever it is you have in mind for your website, let me know and will research to get the job done. My team is always up for the challenge and has the passion to make our projects as creative as possible.

"All thought is a feat of association; having what’s in front of you bring up something in your mind that you almost didn’t know you knew." – Robert Frost
Every business began as an idea that grew to multiple ideas. The more the founder learns from experiences, the more he/she starts to question whether the reasons for the starting idea and goals are still relevant now. Changes are expected to happen for growing businesses.
"For information to be useful, it should be dynamic, searchable, and accessible." - Heather Brooke
In this ever changing world, the easiest way to grow your business is to keep updating your website, share your thoughts in social media platforms and make your contents relevant for search engine optimization (SEO). The key here is to follow change and be dynamic.
"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works." – Steve Jobs
The way a design looks and feels like is only the first step to understanding a user interface. Everything gets simpler if we go with the flow. The clearer the interface flows, the better the interaction of the users for your website will get.
“A picture is worth a thousand words. An interface is worth a thousand pictures.” - Ben Shneiderman
The main goal of a business website is to attract new customers and to keep them involved in your business. In this busy and complex world, the last thing anyone wants is to have to figure out how to use your complicated website.
"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten." – Anthony Robbins
Every business has processes that constantly get refined for every project undertaken.
