Each Design Starts As A Sketch
There is no secret to good design. Good solutions come from developing basic ideas and shifting away from overly complex or unnecessary ones.
We work outwards from the beginning of each project with simple diagrams for web design and thumbnails for graphics. From these sketches, we choose the best solution for the client.
Every Design Is A Collaboration
The designer/client relationship is a collaboration. As a design agency, our process takes client ideas and input and then makes them into initial concepts and designs.
We identify and implement the strong points of our clients' goals to make these first drafts. This first draft then begins to move towards a final version with client reviews.
Make Your Design Mobile Ready
We code with W3C standard CSS3 and HTML5. Our sites work with notebooks, phones and tablets. Our work is cross-browser (Safari/Chrome) and cross-platform (Apple/Windows) compatible to maximize the range of devices that a site can be viewed on.
We develop code solutions for each client that guarantee maximum compatibility.
