Assistance League Bend

View website:  AssistanceLeagueBend.com

The Assistance League of Bend is Caring and Commitment in Action! The hard working members wanted to update their website to something that was more modern, easy for members to modify, equipped to process financial transactions inexpensively, and contained a login section for members only. A large amount of information needed to be presented on the website. It was important to make sure the navigation for this information was easy for members of all ages to use.

"Druery Web Design did an outstanding job with the design and building of Assistance League® of Bend's website. In our initial meeting with Karen Druery we expressed our desires for the website noting that ease of use for our membership was a priority. In just a few meetings the basic design was conceived and we were on our way. Construction of content took some effort on our part, but Karen stitched it together beautifully. Our website tells our story and leaves the reader with a well painted picture of who we are and what we do. The pages of the website link to one another with such an organized flow that it is easy for the novice user and efficient for the experienced web user. We are grateful to Druery Web Design for their services and highly recommend them."

Brickhouse Steakhouse

View website:  BrickhouseSteakhouse.com

After two bad experiences with getting their website the way they wanted it, Jeff and Jodi contacted Druery Web Design. When we met, Jodi showed me the problems she was having trying to update their dinner menu on the website. The website was created in Wordpress, and the tedious nature of posting information, coupled with a bad design, was making the process far too difficult and time consuming.

After consulting with a Wordpress expert, DWD learned that existing website could not be fixed without a redesign/rewrite. It was difficult news to deliver to the owners, but it was coupled with the good news that we could recreate the design, with several improvements, and provide them with a much easier tool to modify their website.

Additionally, DWD created a mobile website for Brickhouse including the OpenTable reservation application.

The Malibu Institute

View website:  TheMalibuInstitute.com

The Malibu Institute will renovate and update the 1970s-era Malibu Golf Club and its amenities. This environmentally critical project required much information to be made available to the public in a clear and concise manner, and to ensure that "The Malibu Institute" was not confused with "malibuinstitute.com", a very similar domain that redirects to an unrelated website.

"As the designer of this website, I needed a programmer that I could count on to create a website that looked "just like" my designs. Karen at Druery Web Design, not only did that, she was able to offer suggestions on how to make the volumes of information display in a way that was intuitive for the website reader to easily view on traditional devices, as well as, smart phones. Thanks for the great job!"

Sue contacted Druery Web Design to update their old website. The website had been around for a long time so it was outdated, but she wanted to keep their branded look and improve the overall user experience. DWD updated the design, tying together many art elements they added throughout the years.

Most importantly, DWD revamped the navigation so visitors could logically navigate the website. In addition, a new portfolio of their work was added. After years of many projects and varying photographers, it was necessary to edit each picture in an effort to make them look like they were all taken by one photographer.

Big Pine and the Pitchtones

View Website

Pat Erwert came to Druery Web Design to see if he could get a website for his Bluegrass band.  They had been playing together for years here in Bend, and the surrounding communities of Central Oregon, but never had a website of their own.  They needed the website to be economical, include a multi-month calendar, demo MP3 files, band bio's and, they wanted to be able to modify it themselves.

"When my band, Big Pine and the Pitchtones decided to get serious about marketing our group, we quickly realized how important having a website is. Karen Druery was recommended to me by a mutual friend so I contacted her. She asked me to send her examples of the type of website we were looking for and to let her know what we wanted to see on our site. Within a day she sent me a draft to review and it was perfect - she had captured exactly what we were looking for on her first attempt! She is always available and very responsive. We wanted to be able to run and update the website ourselves and she set it up where it is very easy to manage and navigate. We have received numerous compliments about our website and we have already noticed an increase in bookings from it. I would recommend Karen to anyone looking for a designer that really listens to her clients and goes the extra mile to ensure they get the website design they envision."

BrandSpring Studio

David came to us with a website he created using a popular website generator.  Although the website had the look and feel for BrandSpring Studio, David ran into difficulties getting beyond the basic design.  Unfortunately, website generators produce convoluted code that is limiting and very difficult to modify.

To help David, Druery Web Design replaced the original code with structured code and completed the design David was striving to achieve.  Code generator programs are an excellent tool for a company like BrandSpring Studio where software-saavy designers, such as David, can quickly produce a prototype design.

Dr. Burket wanted a website for his well established practice.  As a practicing physician and dentist, Dr. Burket had twice as much information to share with his patients than most doctors!  In working with Julie Burket, it became apparent that the large volume of information Julie wanted on the website needed to be organized in a way that would not be overwhelming to patients.  Druery Web Design worked with Julie to create a website that was easy to navigate and logically organized so information was easy to find - all while staying within a tight budget.

"After talking with many different web designers, I was very discouraged regarding the cost and design for our website.  I happened to meet Karen Druery through our kids.  I asked her about doing a website for our medical/dental office and she immediately came up with creative ideas, ways to simplify, and beautiful colors that make our site stand alone!  And her price is unbeatable.  I had designers quote me more than double what she charges.  Our website exceeded my expectations in so many ways, and it was truly fun working with Karen.  I consider her a friend after all of our work together!"

As the owner of a newly acquired company, Sean Fievet contacted Druery Web Design to create a web pressence for his company. The project included branding the company, creating the website and transitioning 30 employee email accounts. The project required coordination between the company staff, graphic design, content writers and the computer systems administrators. The deadline of the project was dependent on the closing date of the contract. All systems had to have a complete transition on the closing date of the contract. The transition of the website and emails took place without incident. We did it for Cascade Crest Transitions, and we could do it for your company too.

Eastern OR Ranch for Sale

View Website

The owners of the John Day River Ranch in eastern Oregon were not satisified with the online presence their property was getting through her real estate website. The realtors were limited to only 4 pictures and limited text, and there was no way to sort through the 90+ properties listed. Druery Web Design created an informational online brochure to truly highlight this property. Equally important, search engine optimization (SEO) was added to ensure this eastern Oregon ranch ranked high in search engine results.

Note: After 4 long years on the market, the John Day River Ranch finally sold 8 months after completing this website.

"We were referred to Druery Web Design when we needed to create a website to better describe and picture the many aspects of our ranch, since the current real estate sites are very space constrained. Karen explained the ways in which we could gain web browser importance for the site, obtained a great domain name for us and ultimately created a beautiful site that far exceeded our expectations, all done without us having met in person! We highly recommend Druery Web Design."

National Parks Popup Book

Our national parks are precious natural, cultural, and historic landmarks. The National Park Service is responsible for nearly 400 special places. These include national monuments, seashores, lakeshores, battlefields, historic sites, scenic parkways, preserves and recreation areas. Places that are the heart and soul of America. Magnificent places that are threatened as never before. And, the National Park Service budget has been cut again; they no longer have the funds to properly maintain these national treasures.

That is why it is important to support the National Parks Conservation Association. The NPCA, established in 1919, is America's only private nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated solely to protecting, preserving, and enhancing the U.S. National Park System.

"Karen Druery was a delight to work with. Her exceptional patience, a unique ability to go straight to the heart of our message, and an unhesitant willingness to try even my most extreme suggestions continually proved the wisdom of my decision selecting Druery Web Design to create www.nationalparkspopup.com. Karen treated W.W.West as a valued customer, and most importantly created a superb website.

I sent an email with a site link to a New York City web designer (for major publishers) that I almost used. He replied, :"WOW! your website is wonderful. I am jealous of the talent in Bend, Oregon."

Dawna came to Druery Web Design wanting to know what could be done to make her existing website more inviting.  She was happy with the content on the website, but felt it lacked cohesiveness and design.

She also needed similar websites for 4 other locations, and wanted to provide her clients with a Guestbook where family and friends could leave condolences from afar.

DWD created the Niswonger-Reynolds website in such a way that it could easily be modified to create the other 3 websites. DWD also created one database to handle the Guestbook data for all 4 websites. Should Niswonger-Reynolds grow in the future, additional websites can be created with minimal expense.

"My concern with our website was that it was not as easy to navigate as I felt our clients needed in order to feel completely comfortable using it.  When I presented Karen with this concern she immediately took the time to listen carefully to my wants and needs.  She presented me with several options, each time making sure I was completely satisfied in the direction we were taking before moving on to the next step.  Karen's ability to listen and interpret my needs and wants was an asset that I feel will prove to be invaluable to the future of our website."

Krayna contacted Druery Web Design based on a referal from another DWD client. Krayna was looking for a way to sell her unique art online. She also wanted a way to modify the website herself so she could add her own creative touchces. DWD was able to set Krayna up with a website and content management system allowing her to do just that.

"I'll begin with something very important: Karen and I laughed a lot, from our first meeting! She is relaxed and this made a big difference for me. We sat and talked about my project; she quickly synthesized all the words and ideas I shared for my website. I knew she got it and understood my overall vision. Once this happened, she walked me through the process of website creation, then encouraged me all the way. She guided me so I knew what to focus on. This was completely welcomed and wonderful, as I've never done anything like this before.

Which brings me to another point: she did not take for granted what I did and didn't know about technology, web design, etc. With humor and incisive intelligence, she delineated the tasks we'd each be responsible for. This gave me clarity as to my part in shaping the website. Karen maintained great contact with me and did what she said she'd do. What a skilled, responsive, knowledgeable, kind, insightful and creative collaborator! She offered wonderful feedback, without being insistent, and received mine with grace and interest.

With deep gratitude and sincerity,
Krayna Castelbaum

Pontoon Water Glide

Website Design Bend Oregon

View website:  PontoonWaterGlide.com

The Pontoon Water Glide is an aftermarket device you can add to your pontoon boat to improve performance by lifting your pontoon so it planes like a boat.

Dave came to Druery Web Design needing a website for his reviews, videos and technical information about the Pontoon Water Glide and a store to sell his product nationally and internationally.

Although the product works really well, it wasn't well known. It was imperative that the website be optimized to bring in customers that had a need for this product, and didn't know it! With search engine optimization that keyed in on other well known products, Dave was able to bring potential customers to his website and teach them how his product compared to the alternative solutions.

"I recently purchased a company that is entirely based on internet sales.  The existing website had no storefront attached to it nor did it have the appropriate SEO to be seen on the web.  With the help of DWD we were able to produce a strong presence on the web, all with a very professional and up-to-date look.  Our customers started commenting on how cool the new website was right off!  They can now view videos, review CAD drawings, pull up FAQ's and best of all order the product right from the website.  We thank DWD for the extra effort that was put into our site and would recommend their services to anyone in need of web based services... Thanks Karen!"

Dave contacted Druery Web Design to create a custom website for his Sports Cards business.  The website would only work for him if he could make changes to the website himself.  And, it had to be easy for him to make the changes.  He definitely didn't have time to learn a new software program.

"I recently contracted Karen Druery to help me put together a content management system website.  Rest assured that I knew nothing about websites and am only fairly computer literate.  But I knew what I wanted and that was a website that allowed me to have COMPLETE control.  The website that Karen has designed for me gave me exactly what I wanted.  There are no limitations on design or content and I can add/edit/delete with ease.  Within a few minutes, I had complete confidence with the simplicity that allows me to have just the website I've thought about for years.  My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner.  I'm sure my business will receive a boost even in this down economy."

Lorie of Vancouver, WA, was referred to Druery Web Design from a friend who was familiar with DWD. Lorie was in the market for a new website after trying to setup a website herself that she purchased from one of the highly advertised, easy-to-use, website providers. Unfortunately, Lorie found the website program to be much more difficult and time-consuming than advertised. DWD worked with Lorie to create the website she had in mind.

"Karen Druery and I had a special working relationship in that we never met in person. We communicated over the telephone or via email. I wasn't sure how this would work out, but with her attention to detail and patience we were able to come up with a web design that works well with our business. Over the course of our design period, I had countless questions and changes and Karen was attentive and very professional. I would not hesitate to recommend Karen for any web design project."

"Teaching Cursive was a tiny company without a way to get out our story. Karen made it possible to enter the internet market without breaking the budget. She met with us, read our book, and in a matter of days put together a web page that sold our book. As our needs changed she coached us how to make changes to the shopping cart. Now, she has updated our site using new PayPal shopping cart options which makes it fast, easy and half the cost. We are now on the first page in Google and sales have increased 400%. Thanks Karen for making it possible."

"Karen did a great job for us.  She took our ideas, filtered them, channeled in her own ideas, held her ground when she needed to, yielded when it was right thing to do, and between Karen and my wife, kept a notorious "over thinker" from over 'n over 'n over thinking.

She is easy to work with, creative, organized and has a great feel for composition.  I would, and will, return to her in the future for her continued guidance and expertise.  She fulfilled the motto for our web site:  '...helping transform your (our) vision into artistic reality'.  She's a good one!"
