Best-Practice Website Design
Website design should start with thinking about your audience, their objectives and how you can help them find the information they need quickly. Users need to be able to easily and efficiently complete tasks, whether they use a mobile phone or a laptop. What can you do to ensure this happens?
Design Your Site for Users
We develop the UI and navigation schemes through iteration—rapidly designing and testing prototypes, analyzing feedback, and intelligently modifying our approach. The benefits are two-fold: First, it ensures that customer input drives design. Second, stakeholders can make more informed decisions based on data.
This agile methodology is facilitated through the development of fully functional HTML prototypes or wireframes. The resulting UI designs can be tested and validated before graphic design and template coding even begins. This means:
- Reduced design costs
- Fewer project delays
- No more budget overruns
Make Mobile a Priority
Today’s website design mantra is mobile-first. This involves thinking carefully about how users will perform tasks and the small amount of screen space they have to work with. We employ responsive web design in the sites we build.
Think about your customers. Do they come to your site to register for events, are they looking at pictures, doing research? How will they do these things on a phone? It’s much different than it will be on a laptop or desktop computer.
Every company or organization needs a website, and both your customers and search engines want fast sites that are easy to use, and work correctly on their laptop and phone. We use best practices and leading technologies to achieve this in every Web development project. These technologies include:
From basic template development to ground-up custom sites, our development team has the skills and experience to build website and functions you need for your company.
App Development for iOS and Android
A responsive website will fit your customers’ needs most of the time, but custom tools like calculators often work really well as standalone apps. We can help you take your idea from concept to a finished iOS or Android app for tablets or smartphones. We’ll work with you to prototype, design and build your app. When it’s ready to launch, we’ll help you deploy it in iTunes and Google Play.
