Over the years, we have
accumulated a good deal of expertise in web design and a variety of related disciplines.
We are happy to share this knowledge with our clients for a reasonable hourly fee.
Actually, you'll get some consulting for free, as a natural part of the site planning
stage. We couldn't help you plan your site without sharing some of what we know, and we
are glad to do it. But we are also willing to go beyond that as separate service, enabling
you to get as much additional guidance as you want from a source you've come to know and
trust. Once a site is up and running, some clients want us to handle all the work of
maintaining it. They want nothing to do with it. That's fine, and usually a wise decision
on their part. We are happy to do these chores for them.
We create an experience for
your web site visitors that will serve their needs as well as your own. What kind of an
experience is that? Visitors to an informational web site want to find what they are
looking for fast. If you can offer them more than that, so much the better but only
if it does obstruct their ability to accomplish their business and leave.
Web Page Design
Many people use the term
"web page design" when they mean "web site design". That's fine with
us we do both. But there is a difference. For any serious web player, the days of
the one-page web "billboard", when a "home page" meant the entire
site, are long gone. But unfortunately, terminology has lagged behind reality. There is a
lot that goes into good page design color, text content, text properties, graphics,
layout, interactive elements, other functionality, links, multimedia and more all
integrated into a whole, with a unified style and theme, that works both esthetically and
Web site design includes
web page design, but also includes global properties of the site such as linkage structure, directory structure, database
integration and so forth. The truth is, if site design is poor, page design cannot be very
good, because the functionality of the pages depends on the integrity of the site
structure. So we prefer to speak of site design. But if you prefer page design, that's
fine with us we do it all.
Web site Maintenance
Once your web site is on
the Web, the work is not ended. As your company develops new products, services,
promotions and strategies . . . as your competitors make moves to which you must respond .

changes. Also, you may want to add more material on a regular basis simply to keep your
site more interesting and valuable for your visitors, to keep them coming back. Whatever
your maintenance needs, we can handle them for you, so that you can focus the energies of
your company on the things that you know how to do best. After all, who could be better
qualified to maintain your web site than the professionals who created it and put it up in
the first place?
Web site Development
informational web sites requires expertise in page design, graphic design, copywriting,
database programming, Java, multimedia and more. It also requires . . . an understanding
of the business functions to be performed, as well as marketing principles, web culture,
competitive strategy, technological trends, etc. the ability to synthesize all these into
a coherent concept, and to coordinate the activities of a variety of creative individuals
