Web Design & Development

A good way to "kick start" the development of your site from scratch is by using one of our templates where content can be added and your message honed in. Once you get this far, you'll be able to better visualize what you want and need for your web site, as well as get a better understanding of the match the web creates for your business, organization, or personal needs. If you have a good idea of what you want or already have a site, then we offer site customizing. We do emphasize standards based validating development, so analysis of your existing site is done utilizing the w3c validator. If your site was laid out with tables then coding most likely needs to be re-written from the ground up utilizing css and yet taking your previous content into consideration. Please take a look at the other tabs above at our ecommerce packages or interactive media additions to see if they might be a fit for you.

Within CMS' and Shopping Carts there are templates to accommodate easy content management without the need to design & develop a custom layout from scratch. CMS' and Shopping Carts have great looking templates with a nice look and feel that we customize with easy navigation, your logos, and colors. Look and feel can be created from the ground up with standards validated code, keeping the content separated from the code for lean, quick loading pages. Please see the next tab above for customized layout should you desire that as a next step.

Templates

Please see our "Template Chooser" on the left to see some templates that validate according to the w3c standards. These have not been customized to this sites layout as set by the css, so please understand this page you are reading will lose all the tabs and some of the formatting will change according to the templates individual css. The design however will stand out for you to decide if you'd like it for your site or something similar to this. As with all samples/templates just a few changes to colors and backgrounds can create a drastically different look and feel for your branding.

css validating designs - simple shells to be filled

Cascading Style Sheets (css) as explained in the Standards & SEO pages are part of the standards (best practices) for designing and developing websites. The several types of layouts as described below help one narrow down and figure out which direction to go in laying out the content of a website.

  • Two Columns - 2 vertical columns
  • Three Columns - 3 vertical columns
  • Fixed layouts - Can be one of the above but have fixed width columns
  • Liquid Layouts - These resize gracefully when resizing the browser window or on different screen sizes

Both fixed and liquid refer to how the width of a page is controlled. Typically the above mentioned layouts are a combination of fixed and liquid within the columns. The main larger content portion is liquid and the smaller fixed column is often the vertical "navigation bar" and other sections such as for searches, login, events calendars, etc. 3 column layouts are most often 2 smaller fixed columns surrounding the larger fluid column. Footers and headers which can include a horizontal navigation bar, banner adds, static information such as contact and more, are often added to these layouts. When it comes to layout we encourage and help you to come up with unique and artistic ideas while keeping a sense of logic, flow, and ease of navigation for your audience.

Interactive Media & 3D

Interactive Media & 3D

Our media department can create whiz bang media that "snaps" to your end users. In the Client Portfolio you can see a sample of the media types from each of the tabs presented. This is an addition we recommend after an initial site is created, and you either want to create that site as a Flash site as well, or want added flair in the way of 3D objects or simple messaging through a combination of Flash animation, 3D interfacing, banner ads, video presentations and more...

QuickTime is a great solution for viewing movies due to "alternates" which allow individual data rates per each end users modem/connection speed. QuickTime also unbeknown to many, allows Flash to be imported in it, making it interactive within itself; although you can just use other wired QT movies the same way. You can also make it save disabled, have extensive copyright and trademark information embedded, use it to change other web pages within frames (as our "Domaine Chandon Sunset Series" example shows), or create a newspaper like "read" where the end user gets to a picture and clicks on it and it immediately plays within the page or separate window to utilize "alternates". You can even use QT as an interactive "shopping cart", ticker tape, game, story book, etc. that gets called out from a web page into the QT player with a customized "skin".

If your demographic requires the use of windows media and / or Real Media as well as QT, then we can create an interface that accomodates all three.

Custom Web Design & Development Services

For a new site we recommend that you use one of the templates, css designs, or ecommerce packages discussed on the "Web Design & development" tab if your not exactly sure of what you need in a web site layout, such as the sample Flow Chart on the third tab above depicts. This will help to keep your site easy to navigate for the end user (customer) and avoid the expense of trial and error on design when the most important aspect is getting your content up ("content is KING").

  1. Full Web Site Design - We will design a custom site from scratch to your specifications with custom graphics, text, layout, order form, etc... Please see the Site Features
    above to create a mental check list or feel free to print it for your notes.
  2. Web Site Redesign - We will take your existing site and add custom graphics, and change things that you want to add that extra "polish" to or are not happy with. Our #1 request has been to take existing content and put it into a more navigate-able, cleaner looking, standards validating css designed site, that indexes well in the search engines.
  3. Web Site Maintenance - You won't need to hire a full time employee to maintain your site, we can make content & design changes within a day of you requesting them. For immediate last minute changes there is a nominal charge above the contract maintenance fee that our web-masters charge for taking them away from other work.
  4. Advanced & Interactive Features - Features such as a Content Management System (CMS), Flash, QuickTime, Windows Media, your own blogg(s), Shopping Cart (ShopSite Pro), JavaScript, PHP Programming, Chat, Message Boards, Calendars, Affiliate Programs, audio, video, tabs like this page to break up long pages, Customer relationship management (CRM) and database integration, etc... all customized to the "look & feel" of your site.
  5. Logo & Banner Design - Add unique logos to your site and spread the word about your site by banner advertising on the web. It's also a great way to point to and highlight other pages of your site. We can also create downloadable Acrobat pdf's from print brochures that are created in other programs like MS Word, PhotoShop, and just about anything one might print from their computer.
