Case Study

Volume One Magazine

Volume One magazine is a fast-growing culture and entertainment publication in Wisconsin's Chippewa Valley (Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, Menomonie).

Volume One made the leap to a full-fledged online community resource in the Fall of 2008. They needed a website that could publish all of the content they currently produce for their magazine (articles, events, listings), as well as the new multimedia content (video, photos, audio) they were planning to offer.

Jetpack Web Development collaborated very closely with Volume One to develop a website that is powerful enough to provide valuable community service, and efficient enough to integrate into their rapid publication schedule.
