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 immigration law firm Trow & Rahal

Steve Trow and Linda Rahal joined forces in 1993 to build a firm devoted exclusively to the practice of U.S. immigration and citizenship law. Their shared values—including a strong commitment to exceptional client service—provide the foundation from which the firm operates.

Located in the nation’s capital, Trow & Rahal’s primary focus is on solving immigration issues for employers and individuals in the U.S. and around the world.

The goal of their new website was to reflect the array of services and personal attention they give to their clients to help them navigate the immigration process for visas, green cards, citizenship, and other immigration related matters.

About Joy Rodino’s “Fifty-Two Words My Husband Taught Me”

“I was so inspired by Peter’s commitment to the principles of the Preamble that before his passing in 2005 I decided that I wanted to memorialize his passion for those principles that are so relevant to our lives today,” says Joy Rodino, author of Fifty-Two Words My Husband Taught Me, a book about love, inspiration, and the Constitution. “I hope that my tribute to his legacy will inspire within you a commitment to share those blessings and “live a life that matters.”

Her uplifting memoir pays tribute to the inspiring legacy of Congressman Peter Rodino, and illuminates his passion for the brilliant vision of our Founding Fathers and the fifty-two words of the Preamble to the Constitution. For Peter Rodino, “We the People” was more than just the first few words of the Constitution, it was a way of life and a sacred duty.

About Habitat Women Who Build

Formed in the fall of 2008 by Dr. Alice Waagen, a longtime board member of Habitat for Humanity of Northern Virginia and president of the management training firm Workforce Learning, Habitat Women Who Build is a grassroots effort that brings together women from all walks of life to help build the newest Habitat for Humanity of Northern VA project at Maple Ridge in Fairfax, VA.

“To build a house for a family-in-need is a tall order,” Alice admits. “We need to raise $180,000 in total. But like the good builders we are, our first ambition is to raise enough to sponsor one work day: $5000.”

Designing and posting this website, which was donated by Inkandescent Public Relations, was the first step toward accomplishing that goal. Make a donation here.
