  • WordPress for Magnum Ink

    Client Location: Las Vegas, NV

    While doing some official industry research (better said, “surfing the forums at Pirate4x4.com”), I came across a company making a big splash in the custom screen printing world, Magnum Ink.

  • Lance Brannon Trailer Sales

    Client Location: Rogersville, AL

  • Rated X Motorsports

    Client Location: Santee, CA

    This was one of our first custom ecommerce websites. Rated X had some specific requirements that prevented use of an off of the shelf package, so putting together a custom solution better served their needs. They actually have two websites, both featuring their own products and content (photos, etc.), but are both managed from one admin interface. This vastly simplifies updating the site.

  • ChildrensDDS

    Client Location: Woodstock, GA

    The overwhelming direction given to this project was, “make it fun”. Understanding that this site was geared toward children’s dentistry gave us the opportunity to design the look of the site in a way that would appeal to children, but still provide the necessary information for their parents.

The Octane Difference

We build relationships, not just websites. Seriously, that's the difference. We prefer to think of it as a partnership rather than a project. Anyone can build you a website and send you a bill. We specialize in working with companies that need a Web tool. That tool may be a static website or it may be a full-on turbo powered, nitrous injected big block ecommerce/blog/photo gallery/forum/community web application. Regardless of what your business needs, we want to UNDERSTAND those needs and work WITH you to craft a solution that gives you a distinct advantage over your competition. Please use our Contact Form if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
