Old Mill Feed & Garden Website
These past few months, I have had the privilege of working with Jon and Christie Hendersen, owners of Old Mill Feed & Garden in Dallas, Oregon. They contacted me back in October, looking to update their existing website. They wanted to incorporate a couple things into their new site: a fresh look that had a modern-vintage feel, organization and consistency on all pages, and modern, functional technology. They also wanted to be able to update their website easily with minimal help from me. I immediately thought that WordPress would be the best option for them.
After I designed and produced the site, I hired my friend, and former classmate, Lem Canady to do the complex WordPress development on the site. He has done a fantastic job getting it made and setup, all while in school (kudos!). Throughout the process I made sure to choose features that would be easy for Old Mill to understand and update. All in all, I’m very happy with the results, and so are they!
I really love Old Mill’s slogan, “Everything Old is New Again,” and took it to heart when designing this site. They understand and embrace the trend that old items can be refreshed for a modern-vintage feel. You can see this from the type choices to the page layouts. I’m confident it will serve them well in the years to come.
The home page has a slideshow, information on the current coupon, and list of upcoming events.
Old Mill now has a clear and informative list of their major upcoming events, photo galleries to showcase them, and a calendar to see what’s ahead.
The other areas of the site include an “About” page, and a “Contact” page. Both inform the viewer, and serve their purpose well.
I’ve had so much fun getting to know Jon and Christie throughout this process. They have been wonderful clients! I can really tell that they put a lot of care into their business, and I’m happy to say that I was a part of it. Check out the site, and let me know what you think!
