Welcome and thank you for your interest!
My name is Paul Ward and I am the founder and creative force behind MEDIA MECHANIC. I am an award winning designer from Grand Rapids (Michigan) with 9 years of experience in web & multimedia development. MEDIA MECHANIC is a sole proprietorship owned & operated by me. All hosting services are provided by me, on servers I own (which are co-located at a third party facility). On large scale development projects (which require larger teams to complete), MEDIA MECHANIC assembles & manages teams comprised from a network of freelance contract developers I have worked with over the years.
MEDIA MECHANIC was founded with the following goal in mind: Lead by Example.
If you are to be taken seriously as a web design/development company, capable of handling the latest technologies, then you can't have a website which looks like you spent an afternoon building it. How can you be trusted to do the work you are promising, if you can't (or won't) build a quality website for yourself. In that spirit, MEDIA MECHANIC was built using the latest design software and the newest advances in technologies such as PHP, XML, Flash, XHTML, CSS, MySQL & AJAX.
MEDIA MECHANIC was built to serve as a living example of what is possible when you marry top-notch graphics with a powerful backend. Equipped with a custom built Content Management System, Media Mechanic's administration allows for complete content control on every page without having to touch an ounce of code. It also allows the user to manage all incoming contact information via a powerful, custom, Contact Manager.
This website can also:
notify me (via email and phone) when a client needs to contact me for technical support
notify me (via email and phone) when visitors have questions
notify me (via email and phone) each time a visitor submits information
allow clients to create & pay for new web hosting accounts securely
notify me (via email and phone) immediately after a new account is created
allows each newly created account (automatically generated onto my servers) to be managed from a secure admin
automatically generate XML docs from its two blogs, which can be used to feed your RSS reader
organize and manage all contact client information securely & generate reports
provide me the ability to manage the server from remote locations
All this, and it will wash your car too! (ok, maybe not)
If I can build this for myself, just imagine what I can build for you.
