Cool New Media is a tiny web design studio founded by designer, front-end web developer and web consultant Kevin Slagboom. We build simple, readable web sites on top of standards compliant code and we're located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
We Build and Manage Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla! web sites
Successful websites are always changing. A content management system powered by WordPress, Drupal or Joomla! makes it easy to add stories, pages, images, videos, and more. Site owners can edit and manage content 'in-page' simply by logging in and clicking an 'Edit' link.
Signature Dental Centre is a Victoria, BC based family dentistry practice. The goal for this project was to provide a dynamic, easy to maintain dental website where non-techincal staff could add and edit content as required. Joomla was chosen to power this website as the content editor is frendly and intuitive to use.
CoolNewMedia recently participated in a re-design of the client' real estate based website for Bionic Spider Online Solutions where we worked on a team to port the old site custom coded website into a Drupal powered solution.
For businesses, dealing with the ongoing issue of spam in their systems and communications processes is a real problem. Some consider it an unavoidable nuisance that comes with doing business online. Workers tasked to monitor inboxes or website communications will deal with spam from time to time and each instance can be considered a small loss of productivity. Spam is a black hole, a drain on business resources, and over time can suck hours of productivity out of workers. However, this does not have to be the case.
Cool New Media can manage spam in your web systems, putting up filters and defences to limit the amount of spam that makes it to a worker. We offer spam defence solutions to help protect your website from contact spam, comment spam, email harvesters, and other forms of spammers and spambots.
