www.watchyulelog.com : tt doesn’t get much simpler than that. Props to Tim, another Ninthlink web developer extraordinaire, for this one. Really should’ve set him up with his own account for blogging here, since he’s been here since what, May? Maybe in 2014? Happy Yule Log days to all.

Another redesign relaunch in the books, as Ninthlink is proud to present the new look of Eco Caters Organic Catering : www.ecocaters.com. From overall information architecture cleanup to a total full-width design update to bring them hopefully at least a little bit closer to the present in terms of look and feel, from the first time we built their site in December 2007.

With more luscious pictures to add to their already-delicious Organic Menus, and friendly layouts highlighting all the help you’ll get in booking your San Diego Wedding Caterer, or latest Corporate Events, I’d like to think we did them proud.

I don’t think it is any secret that we here at Ninthlink enjoy beer, from time to time at least. And it certainly won’t be any secret in another week or two. Why? Well I guess that is still a secret. But what should be no secret, is that Stone Brewing Co. is releasing another batch of their “devastatingly fresh” “Enjoy By” IPA! Bottling today, with an Estimated Arrival Date of Monday around the nation. READ MORE
With the goal of selling individual dealers instead of the cars themselves, we designed and developed a microsite for San Diego County’s Honda dealers to give visitors a general overview of Honda’s current models, promotions, and the ability to locate their nearest Honda dealer.
The perfect complement to PPC and other online marketing efforts, the site also features a News & Events section to highlight current offers, new models, and related announcements, such as the Chargers Blood Drive XXXIV – which received a Honda CR-V courtesy of Honda Dealers of San Diego County.
