Wishbone Mediaworks

Wishbone MediaWorks is not your garden variety Web design and development agency. We offer the experience of technology direction, creative direction, world-class design, and top-notch programming. Our clients range from the well-known household names to community non-profit organizations. We won't sell you things you don't need and don't want. We don't mark up our rates to accommodate sales teams and espresso bars. Wishbone Media... Works!

With the advent of Web 2.0 and the proliferation of sites that create communities and deliver information to them, our world has discovered a new, daily way of exchanging information. Where information is exchanged, so is commerce. Is your organization or company fully utilizing the power behind this new normal?

What do we mean by Web 2.0? You may hear about Web 2.0 and think immediately of myspace or Facebook, but there are other potential avenues to success with this movement-- user generated content, streaming media, mobile media, podcasts, blogs, applications, and RSS feeds. From cattle ranchers to music lovers, from new mothers to niche marketers-- Wishbone can help you discover ways to utilize modern Web tools to reach an audience.

Wishbone MediaWorks is a Drupal shop. Drupal is a CMS, or Content Management System. CMS's offer website owners a means of editing a website without programming knowledge of any kind.

Simple "point and click" Content Management systems have been around for years, but Drupal, and how we exploit its power, is different.

Other CMS's offer simple text editing, some even go as far as adding image handling to your webpages. Wishbone exploits Drupal to take it several steps further by offering Rich Content in the form of Audio, Videos, Interactive Flash, Polls and more.

In addition, our developers are capable of creating custom themes for Drupal in which Drupal is capable of editing stunning, full-screen Flash websites.

There's more to reality than mere perception. Your tool has to work for you. That's where we come in.
