Following the launch of our latest project, Darby Creek Dog Bakery, we were interviewed by our favorite developers, pMachine! For those not in the know, pMachine is the company that brings you the best content management software ever (or at least we think so), Expression Engine.
We are really excited to be a Featured User with pMachine and love how Expression Engine has allowed us to grow our business and create things we didn’t think we could. If you have a moment, take a second to read our interview and the wonderful things our client had to say about their experience with Expression Engine and Moxie Design Studios.
Here are a few insights regarding our experience with Moxie and ExpressionEngine.
I work as an online marketing consultant. Earlier in my career, I personally directed the development and launch of half-million dollar, enterprise-grade websites for other companies, but my personal website development experience was limited to the defunct Adobe PageMill, Frontpage, and more recently a variety of blogging tools.
To help my wife Joanne launch a website for her dog bakery, we came to Moxie with a site I built from a Frontpage template. Frontpage is without a doubt the most unintuitive piece of software ever conceived… As such, Joanne and I decided we needed professional design help and a new publishing platform. I thought one of the available “blog only” tools might work, because it is easy to use, and we wanted the bakery to include a blog.
Joelle recommended we consider ExpressionEngine because it offered a content management system, a blogging platform, and the benefit of various add-on modules for communication and other functions. While I was unfamiliar with ExpressionEngine, we decided to defer to Joelle’s experience. After all, we knew Moxie Design Studios used ExpressionEngine for their own site.
Our Moxie Design Studios ExpressionEngine site is perfect for our application. We have a fanciful and functional design which we can easily modify as our business grows. I recently registered with the ExpressionEngine Community Forums to learn how I can take advantage of more ExpressionEngine functions. With regards to our biscuits, I am partial to the aroma of the Hearty Vegetable Medley. Joanne loves the crusty texture and fruit flecks of our Blueberry Banana Biscotti. To be safe, we urge dog lovers to order our Darby Creek Gift Pack which includes both as well as Hometown Peanut Butter.

Thank you, Rich and Joanne! And thank you, pMachine!
