The internet is a fantastic marketing tool, if you use it wisely. Email, website, even your facebook page – it all needs to look good and work together. And it all needs proper management and timely attention. ChromAddict can help.
The web is constantly evolving and changing. That’s what makes it so much fun – there’s always something new to learn. And since I design and program, I have a unique understanding of how all the pieces work together, sometimes even working as an interpreter between IT and Marketing groups.
I know you techie-types. You’re looking for the “services” list –
- Web design and programming (HTML, PHP, CSS, AJAX)
- Content management sites built on the WordPress platform
- Customized themes for WordPress
- E-commerce sites
- mySQL database programming
- HTML emails
- Mini-sites/Banner ads
- Facebook applications and customization
I’ve been programming since HTML 2.0, so ask me how cool frames were back then.
Sarah Arnett is an artist who works in colored pencils. She wanted her artwork to be the focus of the site, but for the site to still have color and personality.

Huntsville Art League Website
The Huntsville Art League is a cooperative, non profit organization, operated through the volunteer efforts of its members and friends. The site provides information and online registration and payment of classes, information about events and exhibits, exhibiting artist information, and much more. Specific colors are used for each category and they tie-in with the colorful header image. The header also has a little space influence to reflect the art league’s location in “The Rocket City”.

Village of Promise Website
ChromAddict teamed with SocialK Communications for this website. The goal was to create a site that was welcoming, easy to use, and told the Village of Promise story. We chose earthy and uplifting colors for the site. Video testimonials and photos visually tell the story and draw users in. We made contact information easily accessible as well as ways to help, from donations to volunteering. The site is programmed in WordPress so new posts and photos can easily be added.

SocialK Communications Website
SocialK Communications is a communications agency that combines social media technologies and strategies with advertising and branding expertise to help companies build relationships with their key audiences. They wanted a site that reflected the ideas of social media, so speaking bubbles became the basis of the design. The colors are earthy and cozy which invite users to “come in and stay a while”. Blogging and tweeting are a large part of what SocialK helps clients with, so those areas of their own site take center stage.

Sprays, Inc. Website
Sprays, Inc. offers a wide variety of services including Termite and Pest Control, Weatherization services, and more recently Wildlife Control services. They wanted a site was easy to use with a design that was focused on the home and family. The site is programmed in a content management system so they can update it as needed. Being able to add photos to the “Pest Photos” gallery was extremely important to them. They love what they do and love showing recent photos of the pesky animals they catch. The site offers detailed information on all their different services, a news area, and gives customers the ability to pay their bill online.

Gun Fun Website
GunFun’s sells full-color targets that are fun and challenging. They have traditional targets, like Sighting and Silhouettes, but they also have Zombies and Games. The sight is fairly dark so that the bright targets “pop off” the page. The audience for the product is primarily male, so the design is masculine and straightforward. Men don’t shop, they buy. The main function of the website is the shopping cart, but there are also some general information pages. The site built using a content management system and a full-featured cart that includes options for sales, discounts, coupons, inventory control, and order management.

Russ Russell Facebook Cover Photo and App
Russ Russell is a commercial real estate agent and he’s been doing business for a long time – 25 years to be exact. For his facebook page, he wanted to show the different types of commercial real estate available in Huntsville and the surrounding areas and celebrate his anniversary. So I came up with a nice graphic for his cover photo that shows four different types of properties plus ties in his colors, his “pointed finger” that is used in marketing materials, and his 25 years of excellence. I also programmed a custom app so he can feature a few properties within Facebook. Users can click on the thumbnails to view each property, view the complete listing on Russ’ website, and share or tweet the listing with their friends.

The site uses a content management system and is designed with expansion in mind so that the ladies can add their online store when they’re ready. The site covers the types of items they carry in the boutique including the designer lines.
