VyprVPN was in need of a flexible CMS to support the design of their new website, that enabled them to have total control of their site. We migrated VyprVPN’s site to Craft CMS and their team now has all the flexibility they desired. The new site allows for content management, modular design, a custom layout builder, in-CMS visual design capabilities, and unified editable color schemes. This gave their team one of the most flexible Craft setups we’ve ever done at Happy Cog.

View Case Study


Located in the heart of NYC’s Meatpacking District, the Italian eatery, Santina, initially approached Happy Cog with a design refresh in mind. The project evolved and led to a total redesign of The redesign incorporates beautiful photography and illustration of the restaurant, the menu, and the feeling of the Italian Amalfi Coast. We migrated their site over to a new WordPress CMS in order to simplify the process for the Santina team when making updates to their site. Their team can now easily customize Santina’s menus and make edits to them as needed with the added benefit of all of their dishes, cocktails, and even their team being indexable in Google.
