We design beautiful, simple and highly functional websites that utilize the latest in web technologies and are always on brand.
More than just a website.
We create your digital brand.
In today’s world we spend so much time getting people to our door, that we often forget to make that door as inviting and as useful as the path that leads to it. Part of great website design is about communicating the brand’s personality and making it engaging.
Personality will set your brand apart from competitors and help you to connect with a passionate audience. Making personality central to the ethos of your website re-design might sound scary, especially if you’re a big corporation, but even the biggest corporations can communicate with a human voice and remain professional. In order to develop the right tone-of-voice, you may consider a branding session before launching your new website.

Responsive Web Design
Responsive Web Design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation.
As the user switches from their laptop to iPad or iPhone or other mobile device, the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image size and scripting abilities. In other words, we build the website to have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences, making your website mobile-friendly. This eliminates bounce rates and redirects, thereby achieving better SEO and business results. Re-size our website in your browser now, and see what happens!

Web Design Process
Web Design Process
Discovery SessionThe planning stage is arguably the most important phase of the web design process, because what’s decided here sets the stage for the entire project. This stage requires interaction and discussion around your goals, detailed feature and functionality requests and gathering as much information as we can. The discovery/audit phase will make it easier for us to develop and more accurate project estimate as we'll have a much better idea of what you actually require.
IA UX and WireframingInformation architecture is critical in great web design and User Experience design is about designing with the user in mind. Our strategy is to design sites that are easy to use, useful and a delight to interact with. Designing with this mind helps to create the traffic patterns and navigational routes that get the customer from A to B. In fact, IA is the first step in meeting customer goals and can therefore increase brand awareness and product or service sales, and UX allows this to happen in the digital realm.
The DesignThe design stage involves taking the information outlined in the discovery and IA and UX sessions further into reality. Now comes the visual representation of the digital brand. After this design phase, the website should more or less have taken shape, but with the absence of the content and special features.
The CodingIt’s coding time. Now we take the approved design mock-up, and write the code for the design. This involves making the design and functionality come to life. We integrate cutting edge content management and e-commerce systems and never compromise the design. We're passionate about simple, clean designs that are and highly functional and easy to use.
We help you integrate and profit from your website launch by utilizing social media and video as an integral part of your launch.
The best launch is if you have a website that other people like using so much that they tell other people about it. The users you target need to know at least one bit of information in advance that will make them care. Then, only then, can you move on to the next step, which is to facilitate and encourage sharing of your brand and website.
