Winning Techniques Incorporated decided to separate its operations, as such a re-branding occurred which meant splitting up its different companies onto separate websites. With the help of Dreams Becoming Reality Winning Techniques Incorporated set out to create a new image for itself.

Read Consulting Services used Winning Techniques new logo and Program Identifiers created by Dreams Becoming Reality as inspiration for the design and layout of the new website.

With the addition of a “The Fireside Chat” and custom CMS the new website enables it’s owners to update their content on a timely basis.

The complex registration system allowed families to register multiple campers for multiple weeks online in one easy session. Important information was retained so that subsequent family registrations require less data entry every year.

This project involved the development of a completely new website including content, layout and graphic design.

The existing company logo was taken from its original form as a black and white photocopy of a hand drawing and was re-created in its new digital form.

A custom Content Management System (CMS) was created to allow the site’s owners to update page content as needed.

The custom CMS also allows the site’s owners to add specials or sale items via its easy to use HTML based forms.

Winning Techniques Incorporated v2

www.winningtechniques.com (ARCHIVED)

Winning Techniques Incorporated had greatly expanded their company focus since we created their first website in 2002.  As a company, Winning Techniques had divided into three separate and distinct divisions. They required one website that could effectively display information about all three divisions while clearly allowing users to know where they were within the site.

A tabbed layout was created that uses varying graphics and four different colour combinations to allow users to easily identify what facet of the website they are in at all times.

As the site’s owners were familiar with coding in HTML the site was setup using PHP’s include function, which allowed the site’s owners to edit simple HTML files which are automatically placed within the sites PHP coded pages.  This allowed the users to make changes to their sites content as they saw fit.

GMS Insurance Incorporated

www.gmsinsurance.com (ARCHIVED)

The redesign of the GMS Insurance website brought us a new customer.  The existing navigation system and layout was no longer able to efficiently deliver the amount of new information that they were developing.

A new CSS based layout was implemented, which includes an up to date navigation system, allowing the visitors to access the site’s content quickly and easily.

A custom Content Management System was created to allow the site’s owners to change portions of the site’s content at their discretion.
