Ginger Wareham’s love of bright colors, her positive personality and creativity are reflected in her clean, eye-catching, innovative website designs. As owner and creative director of PickleJuice Productions and BeaufortBride.com, she lives up to her clever business motto that “PickleJuice infuses creative projects with zesty stuff to relish.”
Ginger was born in Indiana, grew up in Illinois and made her way south when she attended Ole Miss for college. She spent 12 years in New Orleans before moving first to Isle of Palms and finally to Beaufort where she runs PickleJuice Productions with her husband, Will, who handles the marketing and business side of things.
“I was fortunate to work for a startup web company during my last year at Ole Miss,” says Ginger. “I designed and developed the first website for the University of Mississippi’s art department as my senior thesis.”
That website launched Ginger into the possibilities offered by the World Wide Web and after graduation she chose to apply her design degree in interactive development rather than print. After a move to New Orleans she landed a job at NewOrleans.com as their sole designer. While there she worked on many other city and country websites including NewYork.com, VisitCanada.com and ExperienceNewOrleans.com.
Ginger and Will have worked with a variety of clients over the years. They have developed websites for 5-star resorts, hotels, restaurants, festivals, non-profit organizations, magazines, storefronts and even a waste disposal business.
“I love the diversity of clientele that we get to work with,” Ginger says. “Will and I believe that every business needs a good website presence to represent their brand and it’s really fun to make that happen.”
Ginger says that the PickleJuice philosophy is based on creating unique and successful design solutions and establishing long-term relationships with clients.
“We’re proud of our 98 percent client retention rate,” she says. “We appreciate that every project is unique and we’ll work with clients to develop their vision and recommend services consistent with their needs and budget.”
Since moving to Beaufort, Ginger says she’s been fortunate to collaborate with other local businesses like ShopLocalBeaufort.com a community campaign that was kicked off a couple years ago. The Shop Local Beaufort campaign was created to support and promote local artists and locally owned, independent businesses in Beaufort.
According to Ginger, “As a family-owned and operated business, we know how important it is to have support from our friends, neighbors and local businesses. Most of our clients are small businesses and without them we could not survive in this tough economy. The Shop Local Beaufort campaign is our way of saying thank you and giving back to our community.”
PickleJuice has also developed websites for many of local non-profit organization including CAPA, Born To Read and The Junior Service League of Beaufort.
Ginger and Will recently started working on a new project that is solely owned and operated by PickleJuice. BeaufortBride.com is a new website that they are launching to help in planning a wedding in Beaufort, Hilton Head, Bluffton and the Sea Islands of Beaufort County.
“BeaufortBride.com highlights preferred local wedding vendors, real Lowcountry weddings, exquisite venues, impeccable bridal style, unique inspirations and the true southern hospitality of Beaufort County, South Carolina,” says Ginger. “Our goal is to provide Beaufort brides, grooms and their families with quality resources, creative ideas and exquisite details to help them plan their memorable Lowcountry wedding.”
Parents to 4-year-old Hogan, who goes to school at Miss Linda’s, and 1-year-old Cecila, Ginger and Will look forward to building their business in Beaufort.
“We love Beaufort and look forward to growing our business and raising our family here. The Lowcountry holds a special place in our hearts and we hope to stay here for a very long time,” Ginger exclaims.
