We build websites in Vermont for small companies, non profits, colleges, farmers, healers, local TV stations and more. We work collaboratively with our clients to explore and develop their websites' content, functionality and design. We build websites and train our clients to update them. This keeps ongoing costs for clients low and makes it easy for them to keep their sites up to date and fresh: if your company is dynamic, your website should be too. We incorporate SEO (search engine optimization) into all our sites from the start and follow up with Google Analytics analysis with clients after their sites have launched. All our sites are tested for cross browser compatability.
Triangulus provides Open Source solutions for managing content intelligently and communicating effectively online. We provide training, consulting and development services for people and companies who are interested in making the most of the power of interactive communication as they build, modify or plan their websites. We specialize in Drupal, which allows you to update your own website easily, keep things organized and find your way to the top of Google searches.
We have given guidance to local large design firms and website developers about how to work with and make the most of Drupal. We have worked with and provided training to one of the biggest advertising firms in the state of VT and some of the smallest businesses in Vermont. Drop a line so we can talk with you about your next project.
We've been pretty busy with a couple of big projects. One spins off websites for a local provider of branded sites for clients throughout the US. Another is involved with Drupal theme integration and infrastructure architecture for a large design firm in a nearby state. (An agreement won't let us divulge too much online on this last one. Drop a line if you'd like more detail.)
Also, just wanted to send out some love to our favorite Drupal Host: Hot Drupal. Check out this email they recently sent out about their green hosting. We love their service and philosophy. Also, they compare quite well to some of the bigger boys who host Drupal for some of the larger projects we're working on. Keep up the great work Steve and Brian.

It's been a while since we have sent out any e-mails with news and updates. We wanted to send out a quick note on two items.
First it's been almost a year since we moved into our new offices in downtown Asheville. We're happy to say with three months left on our lease we are looking into options for a larger office space elsewhere in downtown Asheville! This is very exciting for us. Things are going well.
Second, for the last six months or so in place of buying carbon offsets we are now purchasing renewable energy offsets for the power we use for our servers. It's mildly more expensive than carbon offsets but we think renewable power is a better option than carbon offsets and presents less problems. The company we use avoids large hydro-electric due to the controversies surrounding it.
That is all.
As always, Thank You!

I recently had an intense meeting with a new client. I told them setting up your main navigation items can be like a therapy session. There's a bunch of things to consider ranging from marketing to information architecture to semantics and wordsmithing.
- Who is your audience?
- What are the top five things people are looking for when they come to your site?
- Who are you and what is your mission or goal?
- How can we organize your content in a coherent well organized fashion that makes sense to your audience.
- Do you have a clear understanding of your organization and its pieces, parts and people?
- What image are you trying to put out there (and do you have any images)?
These are some of the questions we ask and work through with clients when building a site. We enjoy working through this process with motivated clients who are excited about getting it together and communicating clearly online. This process can be difficult, but it can really help a client be more organized and represent themselves cleanly.
