Allison Holt & Associates

A reassuring and compassionate site for patients.

With a new name and office space, Allison Holt & Associates needed to update their website. This makeover of Dr. Holt’s original site—designed by Laukkonen Design in 2009—featured the best elements of the first site with an updated look, patient-focused messaging and a responsive design for all devices.

Keeping the leaf that changed from a faded gray to a vibrant green, it illustrated that change is possible with Dr. Holt’s understanding and medical expertise.

One of their patients said it best: “It’s beautiful and easy to navigate.” After nine successful years, Dr. Holt closed her psychiatry practice in 2018 to accept a new job opportunity.

Creative and technology services included:

  • Wireframe and sitemap to define and organize content
  • Website design
  • Joomla content management / website populating
  • Project management
  • Image creation with retouching
  • Coordination with developer and client through site launch
