Stephen Peck is a web project, based on the same template as Patrick’s is. But it looks totally different. We love the high-quality fullscreen background image featuring an actual project completed in Miami, and the use of complementing colors.
The only look at the website gives the user an idea of its conception. More detailed info is available in the menu provided on the top of the home page. The menu consists of 7 sections, including “Home”, “About”, “Built”, “Landscape”, “Conceptual”, “Awards/Publications” and “Contact”.

The website gives users multiple ways to follow the company: visitors can either sign up for Magic’s newsletter or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest or YouTube.
We were surprised to see that Mystique Magic’s blog was published on Blogger. Presumably, the company first created this blog and then built a full-featured website. Wix has a decent in-house blogging system which is in our opinion isn’t inferior to what Blogger offers. You may want to check out our collection of Wix-based blogs.
In beetween creating his artworks and running the blog, Ashley found the time to add a store section to his website.
