Sneak Peek – Kayaking.org v2

I have been hard at work on the second version of Kayaking.org my online Kayaking company. That’s right – Kayaking.org is becoming a real California company in 2011 and I’m excited to unveil the new look-and-feel.

I will be covering the exact design changes I made and the differences between the two sites very soon, and most likely in video form. For now I just couldn’t hold it back…here it is, for it’s first public viewing – the new Kayaking.org! First I’ll show you the old version so you have a good point of comparison.

Kayaking.org Version 1
(a brand is born)

Kayaking.org Version 2
(A brand becomes a company)

Stay-tuned, there’s a lot more to come! For now I just wanted to share this sneak peek at what I’ve been working on behind closed doors. Development projects like this take months, but in the end it’s not longer about building a website, it’s about building a company.

    Morgan,

    The new site looks great! It looks much cleaner with better social media hooks/placements – and a great new logo. Looking forward to seeing the new redesigned site launched!

    Thanks for the preview and good luck.

    Well done Morgan. We are right now just getting underway to develop Spearfishing.com. Very similar scope to what you’ve done here – would love to hear more about some of the nuances and functionalities you’re using.

    Hi Morgan,

    Great job on the website. Out of curiosity, how do you generate revenue through the website, because I do see any ads.

    Just curious?

    Really nice Morgan. The site looks very clean, fresh and web 2.0 like. Is great you are using such a fantastic domain for a real company and I wish you all the very best with it for the future. I’m sure you’ll see good results once the hard work is put in.
