Who we are

We are a team of web designers and developers who create websites for new businesses and redevelop sites for companies that have an outdated or hard to use website.
We focus on developing easy to use websites, for both our customers and their visitors. From the site navigation to the presentation of written content, we create attractive websites that convey a digital image and message effectively.
Our skills go beyond that of your standard digital marketing agency, so we take on projects that range in size from simple to exceptionally complex. Accordingly, our programming and database mastery allows us to develop unique web applications that will make your business run more efficiently and effectively.

Digital Presence the right way

Whether you've got a blank canvas or you're looking for a redesign of your current website, our knowledge and expertise in web design will ensure that you get precisely what you want. All websites are coded entirely by hand, we write directly in the language internet browsers and search engines read. Surprisingly, hand coding websites is also faster than using other types of development tools or programs. Hand coded websites load quicker, have more creative freedom and have increased accessibility.

Why you should use us for your Digital needs

Most people in the Digital Marketing industry can be grouped into one of two categories.
There are the graphic designers (or web designers) who are able to put a good-looking creation in the form of a simple website on the internet. Then there are web programmers (web developers) who work with the raw code and can create amazing things, but lack the ‘eye for a design’ or skills in graphic design software. We benefit from having both sides of the dice, and we work very closely on all projects.
This allows us to handle beautiful creations, custom-built applications, search engine optimization and more. We NEVER outsource any of our projects nor do we hire third-party developers.

Simple website design

It's tough to categorize websites, but it's important for you to know what type of website you want to have. The simplest of websites can be considered digital brochures. They will consist of a home page, a few developed pages detailing your company and the services you offer, and a contact page with an digital form. For websites like this, we usually charge a flat fee which includes all custom design.

Web programming

The backbone of interactive web design relies on PHP programming and usually uses a database to store information in. An example is a website that has a login/signup system. Your websites' users need to sign up and acquire a username and password to log in before they are given access to certain portions of your website.
Of course, that's a very simple example. We can take your big idea for a web application and design and develop it to the end.

Interactive website design with PHP

If you desire a more interactive experience with your website's audience, our programming skills are up to whatever your needs may be. Nowadays, there are two forms of interactivity you have probably noticed while using other sites, and they are outlined below.

Dynamic websites using JavaScript/Ajax

If you haven't heard of those web design terms before, don't worry. You've surely seen them in action on the internet even if you weren't aware of it at the time. JavaScript is flashier than PHP, but it can work in tandem with it to make your digital presence, web application or website look and feel as polished as desktop software.
A great example of the power and flexibility of this method is Google Maps. All of the digital zooming in, panning and clicking on locations on the map is JavaScript in action.
