Quick Forward

Forwarding pages are often used to re-direct people to a specific web page that has moved or for one reason or another, has been renamed.

We recently designed a forwarding page for a new client. She wanted the page to forward automatically, so we devised the following:

The snippet used to forward a page needs to be placed between the <head> and </head> portion of the html code:
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="5;url=">
In the above code, 5 represents the number of seconds before the page forwards. You can change this to any length of time you prefer, such as 3 (for three seconds). The url (also bolded above) needs to be replaced with the exact web address of where you want the page forwarded.

It's as simple as that!

Rainee's Parade Photo Gallery

We recently completed a new photo gallery for the pet-related web site Rainee's Parade. A logo for the gallery comes as part of the package.

Constructing flash photo galleries is one of our specialties, and we love nothing more than creating special galleries for beloved pets as well as people and products.

Short Tales Collection logo

As with all of our photo gallery projects, we provide personalized logos for each gallery published online. This is our latest in the pet-related-books category, which comes from the newly-launched web site for the Short Tales Collection:

We began with a blank image using a black background. When designing a new logo from scratch, we like to begin with a clean slate. Typically, we add desired text first. For the Short Takes Collection logo, we used the Trajan font in a mixture of gold and yellow colors. Next, we inserted the "paw-line" image to separate the main text and the author's name. Lastly, a border was added to accentuate text color and overall design.

The border style is known as "homemade frame," and can be found within the Smart Photo Editor software program.

Foofer's Life in Pictures logo

In relation to the Short Tales Collection logo, we recently created and published a new online photo gallery titled Foofer's Life in Pictures. The gallery depicts the life of the main character in the Short Tales Collection of books.

The following logo was also created for the gallery:

The border style is known as "ghost," and can be found within the Smart Photo Editor software program.
