We choose our work and clients very carefully. Why, you ask? Because we do our best work with people who inspire us, and on projects that challenge us. What do lofty standards look like? See for yourself.
Creating a website can be intimate business. You’re asking us to lay the groundwork for your digital home. It’s your baby. We get that. That’s why it’s important we have a great working relationship right from the start. Here’s an overview of our process, so you can get to know us and determine if we’re the right people for you.
We book 2-4 weeks in advance of the project starting, so the sooner you contact us, the quicker we can set things in motion for you.
All great projects begin with a plan. A good start is our Project Planner, which will help us understand your vision and determine whether your project aligns with our capabilities and availability.
Strong information architecture and user interface design is the backbone of a successful website or application. We begin every design project with a usability assessment and wireframes to make sure we arrive at the best solution for your business.
Rather than designing static impressions of how your site might look in Photoshop, we show how your site will actually look using markup and stylesheets. This lets you interact with your site in its native environment so you can get a sense of how it will feel and function for your customers.
When you become a client, we give you access to our project management system Basecamp. You'll be able to check the progress of your project, ask questions and upload and relevant files without having to follow an email trail.
We don't like jargon so you'll find all our communication easy to understand and to the point. Our payment terms vary depending on the size and duration of the project, but a typically we accept half of the estimate as a deposit to begin work and half upon project completion.
Your website is home base, the seat for your product, the substance of everyone’s first impression. It has to be just right. Our work doesn’t come cheap, but it’s top-notch.
Website design and development packages start at $8,000.
You can tell a lot about us by the things we love: websites that are easy and delightful to use; surprise, whimsy, character; companies that take risks with their brand; people who experiment and give themselves permission to be creative. Most of all we love clients who are working to make peoples’ lives better with their little piece of the web. Is that you? If so, we’d love to meet you. Still want to know more about us? Well, alright then.
