    Integrated Marketing
    Saint Joseph's Health System

    Elizabeth is a highly-creative and highly-skilled Web designer and developer. I had the distinct pleasure of working with her on a number of different projects at Saint Joseph's Hospital, including some that were critical to the success of our marketing programs. Each and every time, she has exceeded our expectations.

    I consider Elizabeth to be a trusted adviser and a critical part of our marketing success. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an expert Web developer.

    The new mercyatlanta.org website is fully completed as described in your project contract dated 4.10.14. The staff at Mercy Care is grateful to you for delivering an excellent product and for executing of the contract with such attention to detail, expertise and oversight in solving blackbaud integration issues and most importantly for your gracious professionalism throughout this fast paced project.


    Denise Garlow
    Marketing Manager,
    Saint Joseph’s Health System

    I wholeheartedly recommend working with Elizabeth Hightower. She built a robust website using Live Site and trained me as an administrator. I found her to be patient, clear and supportive with a goodly dose of humor. We work together on the more complicated updates to the site and she is very accurate and quick to make requested changes. She has extensive programming and content management knowledge and yet working with her I feel comfortable asking a full range of questions during our over the phone training sessions. Her rates are more than fair and she is easy to work with as a vendor. I would highly recommend The Hightower Artist Group.



    Randy Renbarger
    Communications Director
    Perimeter Church
    Duluth, GA

    To whom it may concern:
    Over the past 11 years I have been working with Elizabeth Hightower and her company to fully support our website and web-based applications, including a content management system, web store, forms, registrations and a variety of e-commerce needs. Four years ago Elizabeth designed and has since supported our weekly e-newsletter, the Pulse. Most recently, Elizabeth has been developing a web-based project management application to help us better manage our communications projects, vendors, and bidding process. I can say without hesitation or reservation, I've not yet met a person who can meet the level of passion and commitment that Elizabeth has demonstrated consistently over these many years.

    I have so enjoyed the working relationship that has developed and truly see Elizabeth as a true partner and team member to our organization. Her tenacity for excellence, perfection and satisfaction are her strongest assets. Once she has been turned loose on a project, you can trust she will do her best to meet or surpass expectations. I can't tell you the number of times that Elizabeth has been approached at the 11th-hour and pulled it off. As anyone in marketing communications knows, "clients" will occasionally come to you with near to impossible deadlines or requests. It is during these critical and intense moments I have been thankful to have had Elizabeth on the team.

    I would welcome the opportunity to personally share my experiences with the Hightower Artists Group. Please feel free to contact me at 678-405-2222, or randyr@perimeter.org.

    With the greatest amount of appreciation and gratitude,

    As a developer who works with the backend programming aspect of web design I have dealt with many web designers over the years who create attractive designs that are nearly impossible to turn into real websites. Elizabeth stands out from the pack. I've worked on many projects with her and she has a phenomenal talent for creating beautiful, functional websites that work superbly with dynamic content. I've seen her designs work well on websites as small as a few pages and also massive projects spanning many domains and thousands of pages. You will be hard pressed to find someone with her talent and experience.

    Elizabeth serves a crucial role as a contractual web developer for the North American Mission Board since 1998. One of the biggest benefits we realize with using Elizabeth is versatility. She is extremely strong in designing clean, and elegant web interfaces. She is meticulous with the day-to-day details of content management. Her technical scripting skills give us the ability to integrate more sophisticated functionality into our sites. Her resourcefulness in finding solutions to problems has helped us immensely.

    In terms of personality, Elizabeth has a servants heart, and always gives 110%. I would highly recommend Elizabeth to any organization looking for a quality web professional with integrity.

    Elizabeth Hightower's ability to capture the elements of creativity needed for our arts school was phenomenal. I was thrilled with the very first example she showed me and we were able to expand upon her framework from that point on.

    Elizabeth consistently went to bat for us and went above and beyond what we asked - showing us various methods of producing our site using different web-site techniques and applications.

    Her eye for detail is matched by her creativity and technical know-how. That's a rare combination!


    To whom it may concern:
    I am writing this letter of reference on behalf of Elizabeth Hightower of Hightower Artists Group, Inc. Elizabeth has been under contract with the North American Mission Board (NAMB) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) for almost 7 years. While I have only been managing her contract for the last 3 months, I have found her work to be of consistent high-quality, and always on schedule. Elizabeth does a very professional job, and has done so on many projects critical to the success of NAMB. Elizabeth is tremendously loyal, and hard worker, with a terrific attitude. I would gladly recommend her for any internet related work for which you may be considering her.

    To whom it may concern:
    I am writing to commend Elizabeth Hightower to you. She has been an exemplary contractor for me since October 1998 at the North American Mission Board, SBC. She has an excellent servant heart matched with creativity and technical skill. I anticipate many years of working cooperatively with her giftedness.


    To whom it may concern:
    I am writing to commend Elizabeth Hightower to you as you consider how her skills and abilities can specifically benefit your organization.

    Elizabeth served as a contract worker with the North American Mission Board for several years. I was one of the "content originators" she worked with during those years, specifically on the development/maintenance of the www.AnnieArmstrong.com Web site.

    As someone who uses the Internet on a daily basis for business matters as well as personal research, I have visited sites that are user-friendly and well-designed and others that I quickly clicked away from because they were confusing.

    Elizabeth and I have worked well together in making the Annie Armstrong Web site effective from a user's perspective. As Elizabeth has worked her technical expertise to make the content I write look great on the screen, I have been thoroughly impressed and wonderfully pleased at the quality of work and the attitude in which she serves. She gives excellent attention to detail and is quick to respond to any questions or concerns. She has always met deadlines and expectations and has a strong work ethic.

    I highly recommend Elizabeth for consideration in Web design and maintenance. If I ever had the opportunity to work with her again, I would count it a privilege to do so.

    Our company, Berkshire Products, Inc., started doing business with the Hightower Artists Group in May of 2000. They did a completely new design of our site that was done on time and for the price quoted. We have been very happy with the overall site and our customer feedback has been very positive as well. Since then Hightower has maintained and done upgrades on the site. All requests have been processed in a very timely fashion and the work has always been very thorough. We would not hesitate to recommend them for your project.

    To whom it may concern:
    I would highly recommend Elizabeth Hightower to fill the role of a Web Developer or Web Master. She is not only an extremely talented web developer, she is great about communicating and letting you know where she is on a project at all times. She has handled projects for us from the beginning to the end, and is great at communicating with clients as well. Elizabeth is extremely fast, is a very hard worker and has a great attitude. She is an incredible asset to our company, and has been a joy to work with.

  • The Process

    image We begin with a consultation to determine the graphical and functional needs of your site. We listen to you. If you're not sure what you need, no problem - we can advise you and make suggestions. We then identify the technical resources required to meet those needs, and work out with you an estimate for the best cost/benefit approach.

    2If desired, we act as your agent in obtaining a domain name(s) and we offer web hosting to clients who wish to use our ongoing webmaster services.

    3We then work with you to develop the content and/or page outline for the site and navigation schemes to meet the needs of your target audience.

    4Finally, we develop a graphical composition (comp) of your homepage and sub page, to your specifications, working closely with you to achieve the "look and feel" you want for your site. For content management systems, we develop a graphical comp of the template to be used throughout the site, and will discuss any aspects of the CMS that will pertain to your specific needs.

    Once the design is approved, we implement the required infrastructure and code to give the site its functionality. This may include server side scripting such as PHP or ColdFusion, DHTML menus, Java, JavaScript, CGI scripts, streaming media, Flash, and many other possible features.

    We do this in a private work area of our own site where you can watch and critique the process. Only when you are satisfied do we transfer the work to the 'live' site and open the doors to the public.

    NOTE: To insure that our quality work is done in an efficient and productive manner, we request that the content you provide to us, is "final content," and when approvals are given to the comps, that they are final approvals. We use the content you provide to us, to populate and build your site, and this is done only after the graphical design comps have been approved, and the HTML version of the first page has been approved. Therefore, if changes to the copy, photos, or structural are needed after the work has already been completed, there will be an additional hourly charge for changes to final content.

    If you already have a web site:

    We can provide services ranging from total redesign and reconstruction to minor facelifts or addition of new functions or pages using your existing designs.

    We will confer with you to understand the desired changes or extensions and analyze the existing site to identify what will be required to accomplish them, including the impact on existing code or systems that are to be retained. A small fee is required for this analysis. If continued operation of the site during upgrade is required, we will develop a plan for phasing in the modifications without interrupting use of the site.

    Maintenance plans:

    Some sites require little if any maintenance; others need regular updating or supervision. Often this has more to do with functionality than size.

    We offer pre-paid monthly maintenance plans on an hourly basis, that provide a savings for sites that require them. For sites that require only occasional work we are available by the hour on-call.

  • Content Management Systems

    Search Engine Friendly Design
    The ideal time to have an SEO consultant review your design is while the web developer is creating the template design of the site, including navigation structure. At this point, many important elements should have been defined: keywords to target, content, architecture and navigation. If the design of your site is heading in a direction that is not search engine-friendly, an SEO pro can correct the issues before the entire site is developed - saving time and money.

    SEO Process

    Search engine-friendly design does not mean your site will now rank at the top of the search engines, but that the search engines can find and index your pages. Search engine optimization is the process of preparing each page of your site to gain top search rankings for specific search terms.

    A site that has not been designed to be easily indexed by the search engine crawlers will require changes - sometimes significant changes - in order to become search engine-friendly. Because search engines are text-based, some design decisions can cause indexing problems, such as:

    • JavaScript drop-down or slide-out menus can prevent search engine spiders from following navigation links in web pages. Java applet navigation is also problematic.
    • Requiring cookies on your website prevents spiders from indexing your content.
    • Web pages that require users to input any type of information in order to access the content blocks search engines from your pages.
    • Shopping cart systems that invoke session IDs. All shopping cart systems utilize session IDs, but the further along a shopper is in the buying process without a session ID, the more search engine-friendly the system.
    • Design using frames, large amounts of Flash or AJAX (Although Google can index text in Flash now, it still isn't recommended that a site be developed entirely with Flash.)
