While Nathan is plugged into Twitter, FaceBook, MySpace and other social networking sites (links to all of which are prominently featured on his site), his own website is the hub for everything happening with him and his music throughout the web. Nathan had some very specific ideas about how he wanted his website to look. We had a lot of great photos (by Michael Gomez) to work with and with these photos and Nathan's ideas we came up with a design and layout that reflects the passion and intensity of Nathan's music.

Our New Website
January 19, 2009
Well, here it is, our new website. It's been over six years since I launched Digital Vision Media and a new website was way overdue. It seemed one thing or another always got in the way of designing and building a new website for DVM. Afterall, the clients always need to come first and I've just been so busy with projects that I never found the time to work on our own website. Finally, I just couldn't take it anymore and made a determined effort to set aside some time each day to get a new website together. I've been working on it for the last few months and it's finally ready to launch.
