Web Development: Website Design
A well designed website is critical for two main reasons:
We thoroughly understand the user experience because we too visit other websites on a daily basis. We recognize that success depends on the ease with which an online visitor can locate information, help them make decisions, and become a customer.
Your website is critically important to the business goals of your company. We will assist you in creating a plan and vision for your website. Our team focuses on clarity, brevity, clear navigation, brand-integrated designs, and measurable results. Each of these elements is essential to the site's effectiveness. The website’s appearance and usability help determine whether or not you will have a visitor that explores your site and becomes a repeat visitor.
Our team boasts an impressive online consumer marketing portfolio. Each site acknowledges and enhances existing branding, while adding the “immediate” and interactive benefits of the online environment.
Graphics and Design
Our team understands that the design of your site can be one of the most powerful representations of your company and its vision. The Internet provides a multi-dimensional canvas to showcase your company, from your corporate mission through recruiting for potential employees. We blend your personality into the overall look and feel of the website. We work to insure there is consistency between your online and offline image or brand.
Website composites (also known as prototype designs) are created for you to see the actual look of a website before it’s built. This allows you to choose a design (color and layout schemes) that will eventually be the foundation of your website.
Your business may demand a website that is easily updated by your own staff. Our HTML templates can be edited with most standard web design software packages. Additionally, we have a variety of tools that can be implemented for easy updating of your website pages.
Programming allows for your website to transform from a static site (which only provides information to the visitor) to a dynamic site (which allows the user to interact with the website through online forms, questionnaires, request for information, sending email, etc). Additionally, you can direct information captured from your website to external databases or other software applications such as Customer Relationship programs.
Once we have all elements of your website, we will build the pages, add programming functionality, and then bring the site to life. We will post the site to your select Internet Service Provider and make it available to the general public.
“I know I don’t have to tell you, I am thrilled with my website and have had many compliments on it. In fact, I realize that one of the things I’m going to miss most about my business is my web-site. I love it and I think it reflects me perfectly.”
Working with Designers
This spring, JOD was hired to design a couple websites for Influence Internet. [The Influence] team did a great job building these functional pages, and translating our designs to web.
