Should you use WordPress or build a custom website?

So you are in the market for a new website.

The question is, should you build it from scratch or use something like WordPress to create it? Let’s outline a fairly generic scenario:

  1. You need a new website
  2. You are on a budget, so cost is an issue
  3. Functionality beyond just an “online brochure” is needed
  4. You want control of your website
  5. An eye catching design that looks professional is very important to you
  6. You don’t want to wait 6 months to launch it

Sound familiar? You are not alone.

New project portfolios coming shortly

Hello again!

As the new Media Mechanic site comes online, we are still adding additional content. Our Website & Mobile App portfolios have been loaded up with a cross section of various projects from over the years. Our “services” section has also come online. We are in the process of assembling an “Other Projects” section for the portfolio which consists of our past DVD-Rom development work, TV Commercials, 3D illustrations and various print items we have done over the years. Although, most clients use us as a resource for websites and mobile development, so we focused our efforts there.

FINALLY!!! Media Mechanic 2.0

It’s finally here: Media Mechanic 2.0 – after MANY years of promising the new site!

Although we have more portfolio pieces to add and additional services pages being drafted, the main site is officially good to go. You will find all sorts of goodies to read on Media Mechanic 2.0 such as team bio, owner bio, testimonials, portfolios, services and more.

I want to give a special thanks to my partner-in-crime Judith Espino for her help so I could finish it.

7 years and counting…

Wow – did that year fly by. Media Mechanic doubled in business, adding such high profile names as AWI, Western Family Foods and Indow Windows. We look forward to continuing to grow. We also have several changes to the business we will be rolling out over the next few months, so stay tuned!

Celebrating 6 years!

Media Mechanic is celebrating 6 years in business!

Over the last six years, we have grown from a one man operation in a basement studio (in Michigan), to our current 9 man (and growing) team located in our comfy offices in beautiful Portland Oregon.

New Media Mechanic Website Coming

Hello everyone! We just wanted to give visitors a heads up. After 5 1/2 years in business, and a design that was created 6 years ago, Media Mechanic will finally be re-designing it’s corporate website. It has served us well (and much longer than anticipated), but it is time for something new.
