Re-wiring Sasco’s Website for Today’s UsersNovember 2015
Honeycomb Creative’s client Sasco Contractors Ltd. has plenty of experience upgrading and updating electrical and communication systems in BC, and now we’ll be doing the same for their website.
We designed and developed Sasco’s current website three years ago, and since then (certainly this year) responsive design has become the new standard as recommended by Google, and the way to meet future website demands. Sasco’s website will get a brighter design and responsive programming so that it displays perfectly on any device – desktop, tablet or smartphone.
Sasco’s employees will be able to access the employee login area when they’re away from the desk. General contractors and industry partners will be able to keep up with Sasco’s latest projects and company announcements conveniently using any device.
We look forward to working with Sasco on their new website!
A Bee-lightful Makeover for Honeycomb Creative (that’s us!)November 2015

Re-designing our website has been a long time coming and we finally moved it off the back-burner, but rest assured our clients’ projects are still our number one priority.
Completion date for our website is anybody’s guess, but we’re hoping by the New Year (2017).
Search for Parts on Payless Truck Parts’ Website!November 2015
Honeycomb Creative just launched Payless Truck Parts’ new website!
A powerful parts search database lets users search for truck parts based on any of the components of each truck. The database even keeps track and displays the time that each truck has been in the yard. Payless will be able to easily add new truck and parts inventory to their website.
A click-to-call phone number and links to Payless’ two locations on Google Maps are located at the top and bottom of every page, making it really easy for visitors to contact Payless.
The responsive design programming easily adapts to any device. For wide screens like a laptop or desktop, the home page plays a background video showing Payless’ truck yard, parts and staff in action. On smaller screens, the background automatically displays an image instead.
Another custom design feature is the dropdown menu on wide screens, which displays images and text previews for each menu item.
Our programmer Connor pulled out all the stops on this website and we’re thrilled with the final result!
