We’ll never hard-sell you on one medium, because every business is different. We use a simple, highly-effective interview process to let you determine which of our products and services best fit your needs. While we can materialize anything, the needs we establish together will determine our strategy.
Web Design & Development
From multi-page monsters to a simple splash pages, every site we develop is built to deliver the best possible experience for both mobile and desktop, using the most current, standards-compliant techniques.
Graphic Design & Branding
Brand consistency is always important, but on the web, it is paramount. With myriad options for getting the word out about your business, the possibility of diluting you brand and message increases dramatically.
Social Content & Strategy
Websites and Facebook pages are only as good as the content you post. Whether you need a more hands-off relationship with your social media, or prefer to DIY, we can help you determine what to post and when.
Marketing & Promotion
Traditional or digital, having a comprehensive plan to promote your business with a TV, radio, print, website, blog, or a presence on multiple social networks is essential to offline/online marketing success.
Content is the most critical component of any type of marketing campaign, but especially on the web. We help clients craft a clear, concise message, then give them the tools to communicate that message effectively.
SEO & Analytics
Facebook likes and Twitter followers are nice, but communicating the key aspects of your business to an engaged audience is even better. Is your message reaching the right people? Or anyone at all?
Today, a website alone is not enough. Being effective on the web requires customer engagement. We help clients craft a solid web identity and give them the tools to promote it effectively by designing deep integration with multiple social platforms.
With modern software, anyone can build a website. What sets professional designers/developers apart from the amateurs and "part-timers" is a refined, and often highly individualized, process for building ideas into functional products.
Step 1: Consultation
The first step in the development of any successful project is setting goals. A good designer/developer will take the time to learn about your goals and objectives and help you develop a clear definition of success that can be tested over time.
Step 2: Preproduction
Before sketches are even committed to paper, data gathered during the Consultation phase and additional, project-specific research are used to develop a comprehensive design plan. Source materials are then gathered from the client and other sources.
Step 3: Design
After the necessary resources are gathered, work begins on the graphic design of visual elements, generation of text/copy, template development, and user interaction/experience design. Multiple iterations may be achieved with client input and feedback.
Step 4: Production
Based on approved designs, the production/development phase includes writing of functional code and the conversion of mockups and placeholder content into distributable media. Revisions are limited to solving problems found during testing/review.
Step 5: Deployment
Taking production sites live and distributing media (audio/video) content is only the beginning of deployment and distribution. Marketing and promotion is critical to a successful project launch and can include social and traditional media advertising.
Step 6: Review
Successful projects require ongoing review and analysis to ensure effectiveness. Using the latest tools to monitor performance, as well as testing against requirements/goals set during the consultation phase allow for adjustments based on solid data.
