AN EXPLICIT FOCUS ON CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE
Our goal with each and every project is to make sure our clients have the best possible experience throughout the process. We’re hyper-sensitive to timelines, and our mantra around here is to “over communicate.” We never lose sight of who it is we are actually designing for: our client’s customers. Your website is your single most important marketing piece, and the foundation of your entire business. With our streamlined design process, it will properly showcase your brand, products, and services, be intuitive to use and increase online search results. We forge partnerships with our clients to ensure their brand’s online presence will be real and enduring, giving prospective customers a memorable experience.
Most websites of old will size down to work on a mobile phone, but relying on "pinch and zoom" is, well, a pretty horrible user experience. It's crucial that your visitors have the best possible user experience on all devices, and that’s where responsive design comes in. All of our websites are designed to resize, transform, and “respond” to different sized screens—especially those on mobile devices.
USER INTERFACE (UI) AND USER EXPERIENCE (UX) DESIGN
We start from scratch on every single site we design. We put a huge amount of thought and planning into making sure your customers have an amazing user experience, while representing your business with a unique look and feel that fits your style preferences and target demographics. We begin with the home page and once that's approved, we mock up every other key page of the site to make sure each important detail will be accounted for. We’ve found this to be the most efficient way to avoid spending extra time and money during the coding and programming processes that follow.
BACK-END DATABASE PROGRAMMING
We work with PHP/MySQL almost exclusively for all of our back-end programming work, and most of our websites use PHP in some way, shape, or form. We specialize in custom content management systems and heavy database web programming for robust website applications. Basically, we can code entire backend systems from scratch, or customize most existing open source applications that are based in PHP. Whether you need a custom CMS for your site, an intranet, a special piece of functionality or something custom, we most likely have an obscene amount of experience programming something similar.
FRONT-END WEB DEVELOPMENT
We hand-code virtually all of our web development projects from the ground up, and we adhere to search-engine-friendly, standards-compliant techniques. We prefer coding responsive, CSS-based, table-less designs for maximum scalability. We don’t just code our own designs either—we work in conjunction with other graphic designers, marketing firms and advertising agencies to convert their designs into beautiful, pixel-perfect code.
