Moreno Cardenas Inc. are leaders in project delivery and performance. Since 1990 they have consistently delivered a multitude of services to companies and organizations both large and small. Moreno Cardenas is a planning, engineering, and project management firm that knows their clients look to them to serve as extensions of their staff and to help them develop and manage their construction programs and projects.
Moreno Cardenas came to Stanton Street to redesign their website because they know that we pride ourselves on developing websites that are unique and designed to reflect the character of our clients. We used a color palette that suited their branding as well as their projects. Stanton Street wanted Moreno Cardenas to showcase their work so we gave their homepage the ability to scroll through images and details to feature some of their completed projects.
“We took a very direct approach and put the emphasis on their projects, bringing what they’ve done to the center of the site”, explained our Director of Design and Production, Tony Casas.
Stanton Street chose to highlight their accomplishments by using call out buttons that lead potential clients toward their accolades and credentials. Potential clients are also able to view areas of expertise quickly so they can assess how Moreno Cardenas will fit into their business. Making their clients current and potential feel comfortable was also very important to us so we wanted to make sure that we highlighted all their certifications. Their new design is streamlined and makes it easy for the user to find what they need quickly.
“The design contains tons of cool angles and trapezoid shapes, the challenge here was not using a ton of images to achieve this look. Instead we used CSS pseudo elements to create the perfect angles that look sharp and clean on all screen sizes. These elements along with some subtle transitions really brought the design to life”, explained Sara Acevedo our web developer who took on the challenge.
We also put lot of special attention on what the website looks like on tablets and mobile devices to get it working properly across the board. As always, all web development that happens at Stanton Street is responsive meaning that the site will adjust to the size of the screen you are viewing it in.

Adrian began his journey to Stanton Street when he was a mere padawan. At the age of 14 years old, he started his college career obtaining an Associates degree within two years. He then enrolled at UTEP during his senior year in high school. Feeling an awakening in the force, we snagged Adrian as soon as he stepped off the graduation stage with his Computer Science degree still clenched in his hand.
Before coming to Stanton Street, Adrian was a pizza master, a math tutor, and Programmer/Research Assistant at UTEP. As if that wasn’t enough, he also had an internship with the Drug Enforcement Administration giving “overachiever” a whole new meaning.
During his spare time Adrian enjoys hanging with friends, watching soccer and painting his face green and silver on Philadephia Eagles game days. He also meticulously schedules his weekly meals to include the following: at least two servings of hot wings, six legitimate tacos, and one platter of seafood. Other hobbies include playing video games, buying everything Apple, and as you may have guessed – consuming everything Star Wars.
Everyday we have to remember what feels like 100 passwords for work, school, and personal stuff. Keeping it all straight, making it easy to remember, and secure against hackers is definitely not an easy feat. Frustrated does not even begin to describe how I feel every time I have to reset my password using security questions. First let’s go over some password, under no circumstance should you do these, rules.
- Never include your name, last name, DOB, or the name of your company
- Use another number sequence than 1,2,3,4
- Shorter than four characters
- Using the actual word, password
- Using any word found in the dictionary
Now that we have a better idea of what a bad password looks like, let’s tackle the makings of a great, not good password. As I mentioned previously using words found in the dictionary are not secure, but you can replace letters with symbols to make the password stronger. For example: p@$$w0rd ( I’m aware I just broke rule number 4, but for the purposes of this blog we will go with that). Below are some other recommendations for making your password secure.
- Avoid capitalizing the first letter of your password, instead opt for rotating back and forth between capital and lowercase
- Use at least 8 characters
- Try using symbols like @, %,!,# to add complexity to your password
- This can be a place where you can also utilize anagrams
Be creative with your passwords you don’t want to be the low hanging fruit when things start to get hairy. Avoid writing passwords down but if you absolutely must, make sure that you are storing them in a safe place. Avoid writing things like my GMAIL password is….. try developing anagrams for those things as well. Happy Passwording!
