This site also features a slick home page slideshow, updated logo, fillable PDF forms, blog and easy to use back-end analytics to track all of the site's activity.Visit their website

We were fortunate enough to have Martin Transportation's affiliate company, American Freight Inc, as a previous client. The owners were impressed by our work and gave us an opportunity to take a very old site and completely rework it.
The new site has much of the original written content with some of our own additions, plus a revamped logo and blog-style job posting page.Visit their website

Filipino Outreach International a U.S. based non-profit charitable organization founded in 2013. The charity provides financial and material support to orphans, widows and at risk youth in the three major regions of the Philippines: Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.
One unique way this organization gives is through "pasalubong", one of the most distinctive and widely practiced Filipino traditions of a homecoming gift. These gifts are sent to the Philippines in a "balikbayan" box which is typically filled with items that are either difficult to find or generally too expensive to purchase in the Philippines.
This project was a new build at the request of founder, Jeffrey Pugh. His organization had only a Facebook page to promote a cause that really deserved an international presence via a bona fide website.
