Saline, MI (November 21, 2012) – DesignHub, Inc., an Ann Arbor area creative services and marketing firm, has conceived and designed new billboard advertising for Daycroft Montessori School (www.daycroft.org ) of Ann Arbor.

The large-scale ad – whose headline reads “2 Teachers in Every Classroom” – now appears on billboards along roads and highways in and around Ann Arbor. Two apples, symbolizing classroom teachers, appear in place of the two o’s in “Classroom.”

Per Daycroft, the “2 Teachers” message exemplifies the school’s low student-to-teacher ratios, which help create a highly personalized learning experience for students.

The billboards are owned by Adams Outdoor Advertising (www.adamsoutdoor.com), the Roswell, GA-based advertising media company with regional offices at 880 James L. Hart Parkway, Ypsilanti, MI 48197, phone: (734) 327-8999.

Saline, MI (June 18, 2012) – DesignHub, Inc. of Saline – in collaboration with RFD Insight (www.rfdinsight.com), the Ann Arbor-based team of growth management consultants – has designed and developed the new website for Dave McLellan, a Michigan-based forensic engineer and expert witness.

The new site, www.davemclellanlegal.com, describes McLellan’s work in product liability, forensic engineering, and vehicle accident reconstruction.

McLellan served as a consultant on the Firestone/Ford litigation. Other clients throughout the U.S. and Canada have drawn upon McLellan’s knowledge, engineering analysis, and communications skills to uncover causes of accidents and make deeply technical issues transparent to judges and juries.

The site traces McLellan’s automotive industry experience through narrative and a podcast. Selected clients are cited, as are testimonials. The site also features news from McLellan.

SEO and Content Management

DesignHub and RFD Insight worked with McLellan to plan the new site. DesignHub then developed the user interface with search engine optimization (SEO) as a primary goal. RFD Insight created the site’s content using its proven process that has as much as doubled visitor counts on a sustained, month-after-month basis.

The site is designed to rank highly in web searches on such terms as “world’s best forensic engineers,” which won the site a Page One #3 listing on Google Search, leapfrogging hundreds of business registries, government bodies, and competitors.

DesignHub programmed and built out the site in WordPress, the popular open-source content management system. This lets McLellan and RFD Insight make day-to-day updates to the site’s content quickly and easily.

About Dave McLellan

Previously, in a 33-year career with General Motors, McLellan was the longest-serving chief engineer for the Chevrolet Corvette. He received the Edward N. Cole Award for Automotive Engineering Innovation and was voted a Fellow by the Society of Automotive Engineers – a rare honor.

McLellan is the author of Corvette From the Inside, a history of the car’s 50-year development. There is more on the book at www.davemclellanlegal.com. It is available for purchase at Amazon.com or at McLellan’s “Corvette Chief” blog (www.corvettechief.com).
