Our website design customers are individuals, small to medium size businesses and community organizations. We develop new web sites from the ground up and redesign many current sites that just need an new look. Whether you need a simple online brochure, a blog, or an e-commerce website, we work hard to help you meet your goals.
We’ll discuss your needs and desires and develop a design package that will exceed your expectations and meet your budget.
We create designs just for you, based on your business type, brand or just your personal style. What style of design and layout best suits your needs and personality? What features and functionality do you need to bring your content to your visitors? We can help guide you to the answers to these questions and beyond.
We work closely with our clients to choose a design style that fits their unique identity. Our flexible designs are clean and professional, load quickly and are easy to navigate.
We take pride in our work and take the time to get it right to your satisfaction!
Our talented developers love finding solutions to meet your needs. As the web continues to mature, we’re also continually adapting our skills and methods to stay on top of the latest and greatest tools and standards.
One of our favorite platforms is WordPress, the content management tool that powers millions of sites around the world. With WordPress, we have at our disposal thousands of powerful tools that can provide the kinds of features your site needs. Things like shopping carts, dynamic calendars, interactive maps, photo albums, client login areas, document libraries, social networking tie-ins and more are all available without breaking your budget.
Our sites are SEO friendly, employing clean, accessible code, using the latest HTML5 and CSS3 standards to ensure cross browser and platform compatibility. We keep SEO in mind throughout the development of your site and can make suggestions with regards to content flow and construction to set you up for SEO success.
Responsive Web Design (RWD)
With more and more people surfing on the go (or even just on the couch), its vital that your website is fully functional and readable on tablets and smartphones, and whatever the next mobile device will be. Our websites are developed with this in mind using the newest standards of Responsive Web Design (RWD). All this means is that your website will react and adapt to the screen size of the device your visitors are using, allowing them to surf your site with ease.
Plus, websites built with RWD techniques get extra points with SEO.
If your current website is not responsive, then you’re probably due for a redesign as well. Don’t let customers surf away from your website because they can’t navigate your pages or read your information on their mobile devices!
What is the cost of a new website?
Websites come in all different shapes and sizes and deliver infinite varieties of content and functionality. Because there are so many possibilities, it’s impossible to stick a price tag on any website based solely on the number of pages. It’s what Your site does that counts, whether it’s simple text and photos, photo galleries, database driven resources or a full out e-commerce store. We’ll walk you through these choices and determine the best solutions for your needs that work within your budget.
Because we are a network of design and development professionals, we’re able to keep our overhead low and be competitive with larger design firms. As a small business ourselves, we understand sticking to a budget and we’ll work with you to build the high quality website that you want and need.
How do I manage my website after it’s built?
Keeping content up-to-date is always on the minds of website owners who are competing for visitors in an age of lightning-fast information delivery. Many of our clients only need an occasional update, where other site owners must deliver new information in real time.
One of two options is generally favored:
- Contact us for your updates. We simply bill hourly for this service. There are no monthly minimums or recurring charges. This is generally the easiest option for sites that only require occasional updates.
- Use our WordPress Content Management System to manage your content. It works much like any word processing program and takes a little time to learn, but we’ll teach you the basics to get you started.
Of course, a combination of the above sometimes works as well. We’ll help you to determine which option is best for you and your website.
If you collect email addresses for marketing or just keeping in touch with your site visitors, then presentation counts. A well designed HTML email makes a big difference in how many people respond to your communications, purchase your products, or follow you back to your website for even more content and conversions.
Once we design your website, we can also design email templates based on your new look and style. This strengthens your brand and identity and not only gives you a professional look, but a professional means of communication.
Our favorite services are MailChimp and Constant Contact. Both services provide clean and secure HTML for ease of delivery. Both services are fairly easy to use and manage and subscribers can sign up right on your website.
Social Media Design
Have you ever tried to make your logo fit into the Facebook or Twitter profile image only to see it cropped, squished or distorted? We can help by designing images for those spaces that are the right size and shape. The same goes for cover and background images as well. If social media is important to the success of your business or organization, then its important for your logo and images to look clean and tailor-made for these outlets.
