Our Philosophy of Web Design
Quality First. The truth is that there is a lot of shoddy work out there
on the web;
in fact, most of it is shoddy. Making web sites is easy to do, but difficult to do well.
Buying a web editing program doesn't make you a web designer
any more than buying a wrench makes you a mechanic, yet
there are many people who will try to make you believe it.
We don't use visual web page builder tools made for amateur webmasters.
Tools that promise, “create professional websites with no knowledge of HTML” usually
create piles of unnecessary, poor-quality code. These tools are not suited for professional work. Unfortunately,
they have made it too easy for anyone with a computer to claim to be a web designer. Buyer beware!
Ask questions. Look at their portfolio. Ask them to explain
what makes their web sites quality sites.
We code by hand for our fully custom
sites. Hand coding gives you the best quality in the smallest
amount of code. Less code means faster loading pages — for which your customers will thank you!
One size does not fit all. Some projects require a fully-custom,
hand-coded approach. For others, a Content Management System (CMS) or blog is the way to go. We also offer
template-based web sites if your organization haa a tight budget or a short time constraint. If you have
content writers who need to update their own pages, we can use a quality CMS or blog package.
Why the Web Matters to Small Business
The Web made all businesses equal. Small businesses no longer have the option of
not using the Web. Your customers expect you to have a web site. The web is your
24-hour a day sales clerk and customer service representative. We do our best to
give your small business a presence on the web at an affordable price. We also
strive to give your customers what they want: a fast-loading, simple-to-use,
content-rich doorway to your business that makes it easy for customers to do
business with you, whether or not you have a storefront.
You can confidently work with us knowing that, as a team, we will help you put your
best foot forward! We look forward to meeting with you soon.
