About Vine Branches

Growth and Learning are closely related. We grow as individuals through the exchange of ideas and the learning process. I am the product of hard work and the inspiration of some wonderful instructors.

Our lives are a continuing journey -- and we must learn and grow at every bend in the way, sometimes stumbling but always moving toward the finest within us. -- Captain Gerald L. Coffee

Learning and growing intellectually, however, are not one way streets. In those instances that I've instructed others, I too have benefited from the interaction.

In the same way a branch relies on its vine for nutrients and support, we rely on others to help us in our personal and intellectual growth. The vine also benefits from the branch which delivers nutrients in return.

Vine Branches, therefore, represents the interrelation between instructor and the learner. Each, relying on the other, both growing from the relationship.

As a Christian, Vine Branches also brings to mind the Gospel of John where Jesus declares himself the vine through whom we connect to our Creator.

Carl’s work over the past several years shows the remarkable progression of his design talents, not only from table-based design to Web standards, but also from relatively uninformed layouts to mature design solutions. — Khoi


Your website should reflect your business expertise. A cluttered page with a dozen things begging for attention can distract your visitors from the important messages you want to make.

My clients and I work together to create a pleasant website to view, but more importantly, one that focuses visitor attention on your company's products and services.

Building a web presence is a collaborative effort, but don't worry, I'm easy to work with. Feel free to contact me to discuss your website plans.


Success Stories.

It feels great when a good website comes together. My clients' sites are unique creations, crafted with care and precision. Because I work with the client needs in mind, each website design tells a story.

Vine Branches wants to make the website a reflection of the business it represents. Every website has a unique experience and personality. Each, you could say, is a story itself...

The Paper Chase.

Guiding students through middle school and high school successfully is a tough job in itself. Parents and students, however, can find themselves unprepared for university life if they don't plan ahead. Middlebridge Educational Consulting provides several workshops and consulting opportunities to demystify the university application process and set students up for success in their post-secondary educational aspirations.

The Middlebridge Educational Consulting website speaks to these concerns in a modern, easy-to-read way. Casual faces provide reassurance that university degree aspirations are best met by proper preparation and focused attention.

An animated logo provides a reassuring welcome along with large, friendly imagery and dashes of animation. The welcoming feel pervades the site to spotlight not only the accomplishments of the consulting practice, but also the accolades received from grateful students.

A River Runs Through It.

The Lost Creek Limited District sought to present timely information on several different water-related issues. Lake Levels, burn ban status, oak wilt status, and up-to-the-minute weather information were all mentioned as important indicators to the local residents.

Vine Branches tackled the complexity with custom programming to gather information from several sources, then present that information as a water awareness dashboard. The dashboard is simple to digest, yet presents a myriad of informational tidbits collected from several different sources. The large dashboard lettering focuses the visitor's on the information while surrounding text support and enhance the meaning.

The resulting home page sends a clear message that water is important and that the Lost Creek Limited District is focused on serving its residents.


Law firm and attorney sites are awash in a sea of gavels, scales, and marble columns. The last thing my Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorney in Elyria, Ohio client wanted was to have his site blend in. Working with Michael D Doyle, we agreed on a striking image and tagline that makes a memorable impression on its visitors while casting an sense of confidence over his practice.

This design tears the competition to shreds and casts them aside as mere internet flotsam and jetsam. Visitors will get a clear sense of strength and confidence that a OVI DUI DWI Attorney should present.

Not just another pretty face, M D Doyle's site is enhanced with prominent calls to action, a rotating carousel, and an on-page contact form that allows potential clients to contact Elyria Bankruptcy Attorney Doyle without the need of an email program.

Triumph of the Nerds.

Let's face it, a computer isn't the kind of product that causes one's pulse to race. That doesn't mean a computer retailer has to have a boring website. In fact, a solid modern website is just what suits the folks at Metro Computer Resources. They were selling, installing, repairing, and maintaining computers before we even had something called the internet.

Carl Innocenti and staff have been helping doctors, lawyers, and medium-sized businesses for over two decades. Their clientele is built from their reputation for quality products and services at fair prices.

Vine Branches presents that quality reputation in a contemporary fashion -- with modern and polished graphics, interactive banner, and custom glow-over navigation. Because, hey, we nerds like to have fun too.
