Website Development

Creating dynamic, engaging websites is often the first step in the process of working with a new client. Having built dozens of websites together since founding Inkandescent PR in 2008, our award-winning designers begin the process by creating award-winning designs. Journalist and author Hope Gibbs then craft the text on the site, and makes sure the layout is appealing and informative for customers and reporters. Our web developer Max Kukoy then programs the site, which are database-driven and can be e-commerce enabled. Scroll down to see the work we have done for our clients.

About the GED Program

The General Educational Development (GED) test gives students an opportunity to complete their high school credential and move forward to post secondary or training centers. Once completed, a GED credential shows colleges and employers that a person has the skills that are expected of a high school graduate.

The GED tests cover the five subjects that are taught in high school: Language Arts, Writing and Reading; Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics. Each test and section are timed based on the difficulty of each section.

As the test taker, you are not required to know all the information that is usually taught in high school. However, you will be tested on your ability to read and process information, solve problems, and communicate effectively.

You are in good company. Others who earned their GED credential include Bill Cosby, Dave Thomas of Wendy’s, Alicia Silverstone, Gretchen Wilson(country/western singer); Michael J Fox; Christian Slater, Ben Nighthorse Campbell(retired US Senator) and the former Surgeon General of the United States of America.
