Impressive work by a unique woman web designer using thoughtful planning, great organizational skills, and creative talents necessary to work out and complete the design for a very complex but invaluable website.

How do you plan the creation of a comprehensive website with 50+ pages calculated to focus on a project partnership known as the “Enduring Voices Project” between National Geographic and Oregon’s Living Tongues Institute of Endangered Languages? How do you showcase over 4 years of multiple world-wide research projects with a vast number of obscure foreign languages examples, including words paired with sound clips, photos and videos, and keep it cohesive and easy to navigate? And, how do you make such a website visually appealing to balance out all of the scholarly data?

A web project of this scope definitely requires creativity, careful planning, and the dedication of a reliable web designer who is willing to become totally immersed in the subject matter and make it all happen. With an established track-record as a professional web designer since 1999, Barbara Castleman, of in Salem was perfect for the job and Living Tongues Institute Founder and Director, Dr. Gregory D.S. Anderson, Ph.D. was greatly pleased with the results.

“Several years ago I hired Barbara for a nearly impossible task the first time I had her design our organization's website for a big press announcement, but in spite of the crushing deadline, she still managed to do an excellent job in the short time she was given, and the website served us well.

Four years later it was time to redesign the website and add 4+ more years of extensive project data! This time Barbara would not be burdened by a short time frame, but the project itself had become overwhelmingly monumental in scope. Given that I have no sense of web design but do have a very specific sense of the information we needed to convey on our website . . . and how the many different types of data might best be organized, Barbara patiently endured the back and forth and back and forth and back and forth process that this entailed during the web project creation.

As the site was nearing completion and needing only its final touches–it actually became a process that ending up taking a lot of time–but Barbara endured my fraying at the seams calmly, and no matter how minute in importance the changes may have seemed to her, she quickly responded and made them all with her usual grace and charm.

It was a real pleasure to work with Barbara Castleman and have her creative talents work out the design for our very complex but invaluable website. I would recommend her service to anyone.”

An amazing amount of data is displayed in the website in an uncomplicated and orderly fashion, all of which can be viewed at
