Pensacola Blues Redesign
Web Design

Pensacola Blues releases their redesigned website just in time for the holiday shopping season. The new release concentrates on the absolute latest fashion news and events to keep visitors informed of where the hottest trends are heading. Holley Grove worked closely with Pensacola Blues to translate their uncompromising style into a perfect graphical art form of presentation on the web.

Here's some screenshots of the new site:

And proving that we don't always get it completely right the first time, here's an example screenshot of our first iteration of the redesign:

While clean and useable, in this particular case, the customer was looking for an edgier, more high-profile feel to their site. We listened carefully, responded, and came up with a beautiful design they can be proud of.

We did it! We've already begun design on! We would like to first thank all of you for your interest in the site and it's future plans so far. We just wanted to take this opportunity to answer some questions about the site that have come up, give you a status update on the development, and share with you some of our ideas for the site.

Pensacola Business is intended to be a completely dynamic website that will allow the Pensacola community (business and otherwise) to actively participate in a community-oriented business website created especially for Pensacola. Pensacola Business will have continually updating news and information about Pensacola, as well as user submitted business listings for any and all businesses in the Pensacola area!

Question: How much will it cost?

Answer: The site will only cost you as much as you and your business can afford. If you can't afford any money to list your business, that's ok, we still want your business listing anyway! Pensacola Business will have several levels of business listsings ranging from free, to standard, to premium. Our introductory prices will be free for a free (basic) listing, $19.00/yr for a standard listing, and $99.00/yr for a premium account. We can't really divulge all the differences in the price breakdowns on this page, so if you need any more detailed information, feel free to contact us.

Question: How will this site offer any advantages over other online business communities for Pensacola?

Answer: We believe Pensacola Business is different from it's competitors in a variety of important areas. The main difference is that Pensacola Business not only allows content submitted for everyday people in the Pensacola area, we welcome it! Pensacola Business will also offer your business a home on the web without you having to worry about the details of developing, maintaining, and hosting your own website. In addition, Pensacola Business will also provide free forums, job postings, and a variety of other Pensacola-specific information.

NWF Business ClimateThe Northwest Florida Business Climate magazine published an article on Holley Grove in their November 2006 edition. The article gives some nice insight into our business, employees, and vision.

This was our first magazine article publication, and I must say, we really enjoyed the whole process. Ballinger publishing was very professional and made the entire process very simple for us.
