My passion is to help you create an identity (or brand) to ensure that you have a the tools and materials needed to gain a strong market presence.
I've been designing websites for over 8 years, and truly enjoy helping others create new platforms to express ideas and show off identities. My objective is to deliver your ideas and collaborate with you as a team to meet your goals. To put it simply; I love what I do! and I want to share my passion with you.
With so many options out there for a web site, marketing media, and brand identity, sometimes it is easy to fall into the template trap. There is nothing wrong with a template. They are easy, affordable, and quick. And there are multitudes to choose from. Then one day you finish your web site or other piece of media, only to find so many others that used the same template...
Well, my goal is to offer you a custom product at a fair price. Sure, what we come up with as a team may resemble something you have seen, but in the end, the results will be more than just a generic template with "your image here" and "your text there."
As I said before, we (us as a team) will take your ides and make them real. But along the way, my passion for this will hopefully inspire your ideas and together we can give you the product that meets your goals.
In the world of Web Design and all of the other services that are needed to market your brand, there are endless options. So Why choose us? The simple answer would be "Why Not?" But in the real world, it's not that simple.
Sure, there are many companies out there developing branding, web sites, logos, brochures, business cards, SEO, Social profiling, Social marketing, and even kitchen sinks (if you need that - we can possibly point you in the right direction), but the size or location and possibly even the people may not be ideal for your situation. I am not here to do a project for you, I am here to create a relationship with you that lasts beyond the first project so that your branding can continue to evolve.
These were designed and developed based on the requirements of customers (with our input to help guide them along the way). While they vary in styling and taste, they were all developed with a passion to deliver the message and branding for the customer. We would like to deliver the same to you.

Many things need to be taken into consideration when the look and feel of your brand identity is created. This first step is actually the most important one; a good understanding of you - what your business goals and ideas are, and how we can be utilized to help you achieve those goals. It is important that we start a dialog of questions and answers to help understand your business and your needs in a web site, digital marketing plan, or other methods to assist you in getting your brand recognized.
Using the information gathered a plan is put together and a comp (composite - A preliminary design or sketch, artwork, a page made up of text, images, or other elements - to mock up your website, etc.) to illustrate any thoughts or direction. This serves as a guide as to what the ultimate goal should represent, and is essential to developing a consensus of the final design. The end-user - aka your customer - must be kept in mind when designing your materials. These are, after all, the people who will be learning about your service or buying your product. A good user interface creates an easy to navigate web site. An eye catching post card attracts customers. A well represented digital marketing campaign keeps you in front of your customer.
During the planning & design phase, we will also help you decide what technologies should be implemented, what media should be used for your marketing campaigns, and what social sites, etc. you should utilize and be active on to help attract new markets. Elements such as interactive forms, ecommerce, flash, etc. are discussed when planning your web site. In this phase, communication is crucial to ensure that the final products will match your needs and taste. It is important that we work closely, exchanging ideas, until we arrive at the final design. Remember, we take your ideas and make them into the final products. Our role is to help guide you.
The developmental stage is the point where the product is created. At this time, we will take all of the individual graphic elements from the prototypes and use them to create the actual, functional site, print proof, etc.
This is typically done by first developing a "shell" for the content. The shell serves as a template for the content pages of your site (as it contains the main navigational structure for the web site), and/or the layout of your print piece. Once the shell has been created, we will take your content and distribute it throughout the media, in the appropriate areas. Elements such as interactive contact forms, flash animations or ecommerce shopping carts are implemented and made functional during this phase, as well. The entire time, we will continue to ensure that you are up to date on the progress, so that you can suggest any additional changes or corrections you would like to have done.
*On the technical front, a successful project requires an understanding of front-end web development, graphics design tools, and the necessary formats for print layout. This involves writing valid code that complies with current web standards, maximizing functionality, accessibility for as large an audience as possible, utilizing the print houses that meet your requirements as well as ours, delivering media in a format you require, and ensuring that we ultimately meet your goals.
The development of your project is not necessarily over, though. One way to continue to intrigue your target audience is to offer new content, products, media, special offers, etc. on a regular basis. We offer maintenance and ongoing creative (print and digital marketing) packages at reduced rates, based on how often you anticipate making changes or additions to your marketing media.
Other maintenance type items include SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SES (Search Engine Submission). This is the optimization of your web site with elements such as title, description and keyword tags which help your web site achieve higher rankings in the search engines. The previously mentioned code validation is something that plays a vital role in SEO, as well. There are a lot of details involved in optimizing and submitting your web site to the search engines – enough to warrant its own post. This is a very important step, because even though you now have a web site, you need to make sure that people can find it!
*If you prefer to be more hands on, and update your own content, there is something called a CMS (Content Management System) that can be implemented to your web site. This is something that would be decided upon during the Planning stage. It's really up to you as far as how comfortable you feel as far as updating your own web site. Some people prefer to have all the control so that they can make updates to their own web site the minute they decide to do so. Others prefer to hand off the web site entirely, as they have enough tasks on-hand that are more important for them to handle directly. With a CMS, the design and implementation is more complex as well as training necessary.
