We specialize in designing high quality Websites using the latest standards in web technologies. Does your business lack a Web presence or is your current site simply outdated? Do you just need a few updates or new features? Or is your old site broken when viewed in newer web browsers? Do you need your existing site to be formatted for mobile devices?
The web platform landscape is forever changing. We employ the latest, best-of-breed Web technologies so that you are not left behind in the dust of your competitors: CSS3, HTML5, Responsive Design, jQuery, Wordpress, etc.
Let us redesign your site or design a new one from scratch!
Some of our Web design services:

Content Management Systems (CMS)
Content Management Systems are sites that allow you full control over the content of your Web site. This means you make all the updates yourself by doing in-place editing on your site itself. No more sending Word documents to your web design company so that they can update your static site. We specialize in Wordpress and DotNetNuke, but also work with Joomla, Drupal and other platforms. We do installations, customizations of the existing templates/themes, and install and develop modules/plug-ins for any purpose.
You do not need any special technical skills or software to update your own site via CMS. Edits and additions are made via a Web-based interface that you can log into from any Internet browser from anywhere, as long as you are connected to the Internet. This saves you the trouble of having to request your current web designer to make a minor (or even major) change to your site.
CMS allows you to add additional pages to your site with a few mouse-clicks. The new pages are automatically added to the navigation areas of your site as soon as you create the page. You don't have to design the page--just add your text or content, click a button, and your page is created along the same design lines of the rest of your site. Our CMS also allow you to add the following features at the click of a button:
- Discussion forums
- Picture galleries
- Links to external websites
- Feedback/contact forms
- Search functionality
- User membership and/or subscriptions
- And many more, including custom modules
Your customers judge you by the external appearance of your business. Your website becomes your online office building or storefront that you use to catch the attention of new, and to impress existing clients. Your site can determine how professional you look to prospective customers. Not only can we give you a functional, interactive Web site, but one that is esthetically pleasing.
We are a graphics-oriented design firm who pride ourselves in delivering attractive sites that our customers can be proud of. We create original Web graphics that complement your corporate identity and make your site stand out from those of your competitors.
Some of our graphic design services:
- Unique Web graphics for your site
- Custom buttons & icons
- Logo design
- Banner ad design
- Business cards
Website & Application Upgrades & Maintenance
Do you already have a complete Web site, but need updates and additions? We don't mind taking over somebody else's work to fix, beautify, or even just to add new pages and/or remove old and outdated ones. And if your existing site simply needs regular updates, we can do that too. Or if you prefer to have full control where you do your own updates, let us convert your existing site to a portal site that allows you to do just that from anywhere via a Web browser. You do not need any special technical skills to update your site and add new features.
Some of our site update and maintenance services:
- Single page updates (such as homepage, news page, contact page, etc)
- Complete content updates
- Additional pages
- Complete/partial redesign
- Conversion to self-maintenance CMS
Search Engine Optimization
Having a beautiful, functional Web site alone is not going to drive visitors and potential customers to it without actively seeking their attention. There are literally billions of websites on the web, and potentially hundreds of web sites related to your line of business or niche that your site belongs to. The chances of relevant visitors stumbling onto your site as they peruse the internet are slim. These days, site traffic must be earned, and often in a hard-fought way or by spending a lot of marketing dollars.
Good search engine rankings are only achieved through effective search engine optimization (SEO) techniques, followed by submission to a selection (or most) top search sites such as Google, Bing and Yahoo. Search engines are also constantly changing their ranking methodologies to keep the system fair and free from abuse, so improving your site's rankings is a constant work in progress. SEO is a subtle and ever-changing science, and search engine submission is a laborious and often tedious task. Let our experience in the field of SEO make life easier for you.
Domain Registration, Transfer & Management
If you don't yet own a domain name and would like to register a new domain name, or want to transfer an existing domain name from one domain registrar (or Web hosting/design company) to another, let us do the dirty work for you!
If you already own a domain name and want to move your domain registration from one registrar to another, such as when their service deteriorates or prices become unrealistic, and you want to move to a new web design/management company (such as us!), we can handle the headache on your behalf. Domain transfers can be cumbersome. If time is money to you, we can save you both! We'll handle every aspect of the domain transfer process for you.
