Happy 25th Work Anniversary, Aimee Mullarney!


Thanks for the first 25 years of great graphics and web design work at WebWise Design & Marketing!

I am so thankful you took a chance and joined me doing what people told us WebWise Design & Marketing couldn’t do back in 1996. Your incredible talent, willingness to learn in an ever changing online world, and loyalty allowed WebWise to survive and grow in those early years. There are reasons our websites continue to look great 25 years later, and those reasons start with you.

Thanks for 25 years of extraordinary work, and putting up with the boss!

Farm Well Wisconsin Website Launch

Farm Well Wisconsin logoLast week the WebWise Design & Marketing team launched a new website for Farm Well Wisconsin, a service of the Southwestern Wisconsin Community Action Program, Inc.
We had the privilege of working with Chris Frakes, Farm Well Wisconsin Program Director. Her passion and commitment to developing and offering resources that support farmers’ health and well-being of farmers and their families in southwestern Wisconsin quickly became infectious. The WebWise team was all in.
You will easily find phone numbers for suicide prevention and farmer wellness hotlines and information with articles, tips, videos, recipes, and blog posts. Topics include, but are not limited to the following.
  • Eat Well
  • Keep Fit
  • Managing Stress
  • Injury Prevention
  • Sleep Well
You are welcome and encouraged to comment on blog posts and recipes. The more comments and conversation, the better.
To paraphrase Chris Frakes, “In vibrant rural communities, neighbors help neighbors, build up and draw upon local assets, and foster supportive connections.”
If you are interested in supporting and promoting health and wellbeing within southwestern Wisconsin agricultural communities, they are seeking additional members of our Farmer Wellness Advisory Coalitions (FWAC). You may find contact information on farmwellwi.org.
Congratulations to Chris and her team members on the launch of the Farm Well Wisconsin website as they start spread the word about their vital mission!

Not long ago, the WebWise team had the privilege of working with Dave and Steve Helmick of Ginkgo International Ltd., based in the Chicago suburb of Woodridge, IL. They are the second generation in this family business, continuing the tradition of offering consumers the highest quality flatware and cutlery products at the best possible value.
You will find and recognize their flatware in many name brand department stores. That said, ginkgoint.com is the only place you will find replacement individual pieces and accessories for their flatware patterns.  They also offer high-quality kitchen tools, gadgets, and Japanese Cookware.

Fine Wines – Whispering Bluffs Winery – Potosi, WI

The WebWise team is excited to announce a new wine shopping experience on the Whispering Bluffs Winery website. Working closely with the owner, Wes Helmick, Wine Maker, Larry Boyd, and Mary Beth Gerhards, the Whispering Bluffs Winery new website showcases their extraordinary award-winning wines, each having unique flavors and characteristics.Whispering Bluffs Winery Wine

Located in Potosi, Wisconsin, and nestled along the scenic Mississippi River, Whispering Bluffs Winery is a purveyor of an assortment of fine wines. Southwest Wisconsin is not Napa Valley, and Wes knew that many of the vines that flourished in California wouldn’t make it through a winter in the Midwest.

The wines from Whispering Bluffs Winery are Wisconsin grown and harvested from vines developed to withstand temperatures as low as 35 degrees below zero. Their cold-hardy Upper Mississippi Valley AVA* grapes are fermented and blended to create bold award-winning wines.

Fine wine makes a great gift for others and yourself. See and buy award-winning Whispering Bluffs Winery wines today!
