Valdez Fish Derbies

A professional redesign for Valdez Fish Derbies
A highlight of the summer, the halibut and silver salmon derbies are a big attraction for both local and out-of-state tourists. Having long outgrown their old site, derbies’ promoter, Valdez Fish Derbies, was in need of a new look that is both more user-friendly and more professional. Sound Web Solutions, LLC. reformatted all of the content and created a new, standards based layout using CSS and also created a PHP based template system to reduce file size and make updating a breeze. Key information was moved to the homepage, emphasizing key marketing messages in order to encourage more participation in the derbies. Information on Valdez was also added in a new navigational section in order to make the site more useful to users. All in all, Valdez Fish Derbies’ new site now both functions better and looks great!
