Hog Molly Brewing Co.
Hog Molly is a unique brewery and taproom. They wanted their website to be easier to maintain and support their social media marketing efforts. They didn’t want to have to rely on a web designer for frequent updates, so part of our job was to design in a way that would help them achieve independence. We migrated the site to a better, lower-cost hosting provider. Nerdsy gave the site a visual facelift and set up automatic updates to simplify maintenance. Since most of the company’s marketing efforts were on social media, we set up the site with social media feeds and installed a third-party event calendar. To help them start building an email list, we connected the Substack newsletter service. Now the work they do in simple-to-use third-party apps, and social media automatically shows up on the website. Aside from some simple maintenance tasks, they don’t have to deal with a confusing WordPress interface often.

We don’t take a cookie-cutter approach to design. Our design process varies depending on the the kind of design service we’re providing and your needs.
Regardless of the kind of service you choose, we start by getting to know your industry and business goals. During this part of the process, we may do research and conduct interviews. We’ll look at what’s going well, to make sure we don’t disrupt areas where you’re already successful. We’ll do site audits and look for areas where you can improve.
Here, we take what we learned from research into brainstorming sessions so that we can begin to plan and design solutions tailored to your business needs. During this phase, we present reports, design briefs, and our recommendations for a pathway forward. We’ll come up with a plan for launching your new site so that it is least disruptive to your business.
During this part of the process, we make our ideas tangible by creating sketches, wireframes, and in some cases working prototypes.
Remembering that we design for your users, and your business goals, we work closely with you to design what works for your business. You’re always part of the design team! We get things right when we collaborate. Your input is invaluable to the process.
Once you sign-off on our designs we will build and launch your new site. We want to be the go-to designers you can rely on to get the job done right. So, we’ll keep in touch periodically to see how things are going, and answer questions if you get stuck.
