Klündt | Hosmer recently launched a website for the Kalispel Tribe of Indians, which follows our design of the tribal brochure, communicating a “Past, Present, Future” message.
The website includes many pages of information—written with assistance from Desautel Hege Communications—and presented through a well-organized navigation system. Photo galleries showcase current-day and historical images, and a multi-view calendar of events lets visitors know what is going on with the tribe. The site also includes employment and charitable fund areas, both of which are used on a regular basis by the general public.
The site is implemented through a content management system and will be updated by tribal staff. A future section of the site will include Salish language audio resources, historical heritage content and other information of importance to Kalispel tribal members.
A few weeks ago, I returned from a trip to China with a group of 64 local business people and family members. The trip was organized by Greater Spokane Incorporated and the International Trade Alliance. Its purpose was to introduce Americans to Chinese culture and present possible business opportunities with China.
We spent four days in Beijing, touring the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, hiking the Great Wall, viewing the Olympic Village, and touring local businesses and manufacturing facilities. One evening we had a meeting with other U.S. business owners and representatives from ChinaTrade, an organization connecting Chinese and American businesses.
A few days in Shanghai made me realize that no matter what is happening in OUR economy, there is a LOT of business going on in China. There is even potential for new business for Klündt | Hosmer, as we may get the chance to create marketing materials for a Chinese manufacturer of solar water heaters looking to export their product to the U.S.
