Debby at Hungry Oven needed a magazine style website that covered a great deal of content. She also wanted her staff to be able to have control over the content. We worked closely with her team to develop a WordPress theme that met all of these needs. There were a great deal of customizations done to meet all of the requirements.
I’m looking forward to enrolling my daughter into a class so she can prepare an evening meal once in a while.

Tactical Actions Group (TAG) came to BashBang looking to update their website. They were happy with the overall design of the site but needed work done to make it more functional.
They needed the ability to make copy and minor images updates to their website without working through a developer. This required a CMS. They also needed their site to be search engine compatible and to work on a iPhone/iPad. Their site was created in Flash many years ago and didn’t do the SEO very well nor did it work in the iOS devices.
BashBang build a WordPress skin based on their current design. We made design and usability improvements where necessary. We also built them a nice submission form for recruiting purposes and class signup purposes.
All of these changes resulted in a far higher ranking on the targeted keywords in google providing the site with better traffic as well as higher volumes of recruit submissions.

BashBang built Access-Strategy a quick and dirty WordPress site with an off the shelf style. We did a few edits to the design template and incorporated a couple standard plugins. This is one of the fastest websites we’ve every produced. So quick in fact we didn’t even charge for it, although Nicole still owes me a dinner for our efforts.

O2 asked BashBang to develop a video sharing site to allow educators to share teaching videos on various topics. O2 produced the design and BashBang took care of the technical design and programming aspects. We took phpMotion as a starting point, and rewrote about 90% of the software’s front end and about 50% of the backend. We also added our moderation tools to phpMotion to allow O2 staff to preview content before it was released to the site users.
BashBang also took care of the server setup and config and post launch was responsible for server monitoring and maintenance.

BashBang Productions took over development of the virtual world project ZulaWorld.com.

We also rewrote much of the backend code to provide easier maintenance, reliability, and substantially optimized the assets.
BashBang also redesigned the systems architecture to remove all single points of failure while simultaneously reducing the hosting costs by 300%.
This project involved a Flex frontend, RubyOnRails scripting for the server side logic, MySQL database and SmartFox Server for the multiplayer functionality.

SD Entertainment was looking for a more modern looking corporate website to exhibit the work they’ve done on several well known animation projects (such as Angelina Ballerina, Bob the Builder, Care Bears, Winnie the Pooh, Bratz Babyz, Finster and Mulan II). The great talent at SD Ent. are more than capable of producing this website on their own, but as with many businesses, they were just too busy to do their own work. BashBang was able to design and produce the site that SD Ent. envisioned while keeping within the clients budget.

Kathylee Forrester required a new website for her dear friend Patches the Bear. Patches is not only a very cute and cuddly stuffed bear he’s also a tool that parents and child workers can use to help communicate with children. Patches comes with eight emotion face symbols that children can choose to display on their bear used to communicate their own feelings.
We used Word Press as a base for developing the site and skinned it to meet Kathylee’s requirements.
