Starting in 2012, Those DeWolfes Creative will be publishing a web series, The A to Z of Tech in which Cheryl will be writing about some of the key concepts, services, hardware, and software that make up our technological world. The biggest challenge for some letters is to narrow it down to one topic! The goal is to clarify, highlight, and educate people about some of the best that tech has to offer -- from apps to zip files and a whole lot in between. Some of these articles may be nothing new to our regular readers but I am hopeful that you'll still learn something along the way.
Who Are We?Those DeWolfes Creative is a partnership between Shawn and Cheryl DeWolfe. We operate our business like a lab: after experiments and research, we concoct products to serve niche needs and markets. We also do custom websites tailored to the needs of clients. We're about more than just web design: we have blended our work in IT, writing and art to build a full range of creative offerings. We deliver great solutions that combine innovation and common sense.
Those DeWolfes Creative is based in Victoria BC, but we have worked for clients throughout North America and further afield.
Specialty: Web DesignWe can deploy a sophisticated site in very little time. Get the same tools and capabilities as the big players, but do it all on a shoestring budget. For your project, we assemble the best team of specialists: Web designers who know the Internet inside and out; graphic designers who know how to deliver the best visuals; copywriters who will mesmerize your audience; and the best SEO consultants available. Our specialists team up to deliver you the best results.
We concentrate on making your site and its visuals of the site work to deliver your message and draw in your audience.
Specialty: Info ServicesInformation, content, and data are integral to every business but finding, creating, and managing it is time consuming. Sometimes big tasks need to be done only once -- why train someone in-house when you can hire our staff to get the project done? Other tasks may need to be repeated weekly, monthly or annually; our staff is happy to work out a schedule with you for the completion of these services. With a background in academic research and library services, Cheryl DeWolfe can manage your information needs.

Ecommerce is, of course, electronic commerce -- basically the idea of buying and selling things online. Some sites exist purely because of ecommerce such as Amazon, eBay, and Etsy -- whereas for others, ecommerce is only a portion of the site such as an artist’s store alongside their blog. Most brick and mortar stores also have dedicated ecommerce sites and if you sell anything -- whether physical or digital, and whether or not you have a storefront, you will probably need to consider ecommerce now or at some point in the near future.
Digitization is the act of making digital something that is otherwise physical or analog. Most often, digitization involves scanning books and paper but can also be transferring other media, such as VHS tapes, LPs, or even microfilm to digital formats.
