Web Design

Elegant. Bold. Responsive.

Every business needs a website.

Twenty years ago it wasn’t necessary for companies to have a website. Ten years ago you could get by, but it was starting to become more difficult. Now every individual and business needs a site.

Without a site, your business risks throwing away an enormous amount of business. Individuals, whether they’re job-hunting or working as freelancers, are often only able to reach a wider world through a site.

And every website needs these four essential features.

Speed

Speed is important for any website. Research shows that waiting just a few seconds will discourage you audience, while those on slow connections—like public wireless internet or rural 3G—may struggle to connect at all.

We make fast websites by doing our work carefully and well. Services such as Google Pagespeed, YSlow, GTMetrix, and Dotcom-Monitor will test a website for you automatically. Feel free to see how our site loads with any of those services—and take a look at our competitors, too!

Security

While many website owners assume they are too small to be targeted by hackers, the truth is most attacks are automated and indiscriminate.

We use Let’s Encrypt certificates to ensure traffic from your server is private and tamperproof, We follow best practices to make your server as hardened as possible, and most importantly, offer free automatic backups so that any damage can be quickly restored.

You can check an audit of this site’s encryption with SSL Labs.

Accessibility

Few people consider the visually or physically impaired when they design websites, but we do. If you represent a government agency or large company, it may matter to you that we can make your website Section 508 and/or WCAG 2.0 compliant.

Otherwise, you can rest assured that our websites are tested using WebAIM’s WAVE tool and manually with a screen-reader to ensure it’s accessible to your entire audience.

Responsiveness

A “responsive” website is one that changes its layout to match the size of the screen viewing it. This is important because, for almost every website, half or more of your visitors will be using a phone or other mobile device.

Our websites adjust their layout to gracefully use the available space. If you’re using a desktop browser, resize the screen to make it wider or narrower to see how it works!
