Website Design and Graphic Design
If you look through our portfolio you will notice the designs do not all look alike. We strive for clean, attractive designs that accurately reflect your business for both your website and print collateral. What is appropriate for your industry? Who are your competitors? What are the demographics of your target market? It all matters. It all affects the design choices we make for your website and design graphics.
Many applications, such as WordPress and flash, have hundreds of templates or themes available online. We aren't adverse to using themes, they can be a great jumping off point, but some customization of design and content is usually required. There is nothing worse than browsing the Web and coming across a website design that is an exact copy of your website.
When we design a look for your website we can also extend that design to business cards, postcards, brochures and other promotional materials. If you work with a specific printer or would like to shop around, we can deliver print-ready PDFs. If you need more support, we can handle the printing process for you.
