Union Street Media website launches: schools, dog care, planning, and wine

August 27, 2010 by USM Interactive

This month, we rolled out five new Interactive sites.  We’re proud to unveil the new website designs for St. Joseph Catholic School, Shelburne Vineyard, Crate Escape, Charlie Smith for Senate and NNECAPA!

St.Joseph Catholic School

With a close-knit school community, St. Joseph Catholic School came to Union Street looking for a website that would connect their parents and administration.  Using compelling images, clean design and well-written content, we were able to create a complex, yet easily navigable site that will allow their current school community to connect while attracting new families, as well.

Shelburne Vineyard

Vermonters are proud of their dairy and produce, but surprisingly, they can now be proud of their wines, as well.    When Shelburne Vineyard approached Union Street, we were eager to build a beautiful site that would showcase their award-winning wines and their vineyard’s stellar location.  This WordPress site combines beautiful photos with a navigation that emphasizes the numerous ways in which you can experience Shelburne Vineyard wines.  With a blog, events calendar, visit schedule and active social media, Shelburne Vineyard can now interact with their customers in a more robust way.

Crate Escape

After looking at several web designers, local Burlington Doggie Day Care provider, Crate Escape, came to USM, impressed by our portfolio excited to re-invigorate their website to be more user-friendly and inviting.  Built in WordPress, this site includes a blog, photos of the comfortable setting and friendly dogs at Crate Escape and easy ways for dog owners to get in touch.  USM also did basic optimization on the site to make it visible in search engines.

Charlie Smith for State Senate

Seeking to expand his base and convey his experience and positions in running for Chittenden County’s Senate seat, Charlie Smith worked with Union Street to build an informative, appealing website.  Focusing on Vermont themes (to highlight the fact that he’s a 6th generation Vermonter) we built an easy-to-maintain WordPress site that helps people quickly learn about Charlie as well as donate to his cause.


After working with Union Street on the Burlington Climate Action Plan website in 2009, Sandrine Thibault was happy to start a new project in redesigning the NNECAPA (Northern New England Chapter of the American Planning Association) website.  She knew she could expect an easily updateable and navigable result and that’s exactly what she was looking for.  With goals of improving staff access to site content and making the site more informative and useful to NNECAPA members, we focused on a clean, uncluttered design, setting up the site in WordPress and organizing the many pages in a clear and concise way. Learn more about the process and how much Sandrine liked working with USM in this testimonial.
