Cool New Media is a tiny web design studio founded by designer, front-end web developer and web consultant Kevin Slagboom. We build simple, readable web sites on top of standards compliant code and we're located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
We Build and Manage Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla! web sites
Successful websites are always changing. A content management system powered by WordPress, Drupal or Joomla! makes it easy to add stories, pages, images, videos, and more. Site owners can edit and manage content 'in-page' simply by logging in and clicking an 'Edit' link.
