We offer the following services to our clients. Not sure if your needs fit within this list? Kick us a note! Odds are, if we can’t help, we know someone who can.
From logos to letterhead, color theory to accessibility, for digital or print – we create stunning artwork (and technically sound digital assets) to communicate your message and amplify your brand across any medium.
Your brand image should convey what your company is all about – it needs to be flexible enough to move from letterhead to website to facebook to newspaper ad. A great brand is instantly recognizable and creates a sense of cohesion across all facets of your business.
More than “Pretty”
Art is subjective; Graphic Design is not. Our artists create brand assets that beautifully reflect & strengthen your brand’s message, producing gorgeous AND technically perfect (pixel perfect, that is) artwork that is flexible enough to move from letterhead to website to facebook to newspaper ad.
We engineer custom applications and websites, testing each to ensure structural integrity, accessibility, and scalability, as well as maximum organic SEO potential. We don’t make “good” websites. We make freakin’ awesome websites.
Web accessibility refers to the practice of removing barriers that prevent interaction with, or access to websites, by people with disabilities. Essentially, it is making sure that a wide range of people, including individuals who have visual, motor, auditory, speech, or cognitive disabilities are able to use a website.
Ignoring the accessibility of your business’s website means disregarding a giant swath of potential customers.
To ignore the accessibility of your business’s website is to disregard a giant swath of potential customers.
SEO, from the ground up
SEO refers to a website’s placement on a google search result page. You can pay to have ads appear above the rest of the search results, but do you really want to get stuck in that rut?
There are a number of factors to consider when we discuss SEO – in fact, everything from your web server configuration to the content on your site to the time it takes your page to load to the consistency of your digital presence to your social media profiles affect your business’s ranking on search engines. There is no one “easy” fix to the magic of “SEO.” Each of these (and more) factors are taken into account by Google’s (and Bing’s and Yahoo’s and Facebook’s and…you get the picture) search algorithm. Each of these factors build on each other to create the whole of how search results are displayed. Your website is a critical, foundational element of how you rank on the SERP (Search Engine Results Page).
However, even the prettiest of websites can be a dumpster fire as far as search engines are concerned. Why? Because Search Engines can see what humans cannot.
Imagine you’re shopping for a new house. You find one with a gorgeous new roof and top-of-the-line siding. It has a beautiful, well-manicured lawn, and a lovely, open-concept layout. There’s a chef’s kitchen, a luxury bathroom, big, bright bedrooms…it’s everything you’ve dreamed of. It looks perfect.
So you buy it. And about 6 months down the road, your beautiful new house appears to be slouching over. The siding is popping off and there are cracks in the walls. You call an expert in and find out that your foundation wasn’t properly constructed and now it’s crumbling, and your gorgeous, expensive new house is falling in on itself.
In this analogy, the code that your website is built on and that is powering the server it runs on is the foundation. If not done correctly, even the flashiest, most beautiful websites will fail miserably at being found on the web.
You know you need a website, but you don’t know how to organize the words on the pages – heck, which words should you even use? Does it matter? You’ve been told blogging is a good way to increase your SEO…easier said than done. What should you write about? How often? Why?
Thinking up good content for your site can be an overwhelming task. Organizing that content, or (gulp!) actually writing it? That can seem impossible. Our staff writers have you covered. Our wordsmiths are research junkies, allowing your own expertise to be translated to the screen. Keyword optimization is certainly important, but it’s just as critical that human’s are capable of consuming the words you write.
Cloud Hosting Sustainably!
We provide hassle-free and planet-friendly fully managed hosting for your website, app, or email – all in the cloud. We also think it’s worth noting that we rock a stellar 99.999% uptime record – so you can rest easy, knowing your business is always online, always safe.
Strategy & Consulting
Technology never stands still.
Successful businesses know that it isn’t enough to get to the bleeding edge – you have to be agile enough to stay there. From answering questions to creating and implementing a full strategy, we work to give put the right tools in your hands.
The tech landscape is always evolving – but that doesn’t always mean that every new technology is right for your business. We advocate for our clients to keep them from being taken advantage of by products and services they don’t really need.
With experts in WordPress, Laravel, Vue, SCSS/SASS, Sys Admin and InfoSec, as well as the Adobe Creative Suite, content curation and copywriting, we’re able to help agencies, designers, and consultants make their ideas a reality and bring projects to life. Our developers are full-stack, each with specialties in front-end or back-side programming.
Knowing What You Don’t Know
We’ve been able to create partnerships with agencies across the country – all because we live by one simple principle: we know what we don’t know, and we’re willing to admit it. (Never trust someone who’s unwilling to utter the phrase, “I don’t know.”)
We empower agencies whose fields overlap with (or butt right up against) ours to do the same: we can’t all be experts in everything. By partnering with us, you can focus on what your business does well while fulfilling all of your clients’ needs – without hiring another body or offloading your clientele to another agency. In fact, we can do it all behind the scenes, leaving 100% of the glory for you. Because our priority is to make you look good.
