No two web design projects are the same. Your needs are unique, so it only makes sense that our approach has the flexibility to meet your needs. During the research and planning stages of our projects, we develop the set of activities and deliverables that will best inform your project and help us create the most valuable product for your audiences.
We strive to design experiences that are mutually beneficial for both you and your users. Our User Experience Designers balance the tasks your audiences need to perform with your organization’s goals. With you, they will design intuitive site structures, logical labels, and templates that fit your content and grow with you over time.
Our Visual Designers pride themselves on creating user interfaces which feature clean typography, strike a visual balance, and deliver impactful messages that resonate with your users. Whether the focus is marketing, education, the arts, or commerce, our designs reflect a “less is more” aesthetic that allows your content and messaging to shine.
We strongly believe design and technology are not mutually exclusive. Our designers understand and can design for the latest technologies; our developers value good design and have a keen eye for layout. You can trust that our design and development teams speak the same language.
Our development team incorporates best practices for modern web development as a standard operating procedure. Our front-end development is all W3C compliant, validating xHTML with expert use of CSS and AJAX where applicable. We incorporate SEO best practices as well as ADA 508 Compliance as a matter of course.
It’s hard to continue without getting into a lot of technical jargon, but suffice it to say that we have a wealth of experience using a variety of platforms as well as commercial, open source, and custom content management solutions. Our technical approach varies by client and project. We shy away from a strict waterfall process by incorporating agile principles, and we work closely with the UX, Design, and Project Management teams throughout the life of the project to ensure that the final product exceeds our clients’ expectations.
We can’t do any of this without you: this is all a collaborative effort. We have a lot to learn about your organization and audiences, and you have the expertise. Likewise, we strive to make the web design process as clear and straightforward as possible. We’ll help you understand the up front project requirements, but we also want to be long-term thinkers and help you understand how your organization can support and cultivate your content and audiences over time.
Bottom line: We've got your back.
