Interaction Design & Development

The internet is littered with websites that are extremely hard to use and down right frustrating.

When we build websites, we make sure to keep the user at the heart of the design. Is this form easy to fill out? Does this button actually look and act like a button should?

Research

We believe in making websites that are usable and easy to use.

We research the best practices on usability and experience in the web industry to help inform our decisions.

Easy to Use

Like they say: if your Mom can’t understand or use your website, you’ve got a problem.

Even if your target market is focused on the twenty-somethings, you still need to have a website that is functional and easy to use. Otherwise, people will become frustrated and frustrated people won’t be coming back to your website.

A Reaction for Every Action

Your website needs to have a reaction for every action.

When a visitor clicks a button, there needs to be an action that lets them know the website has responded. When they fill out your contact form, there needs to be an instant reaction.

It’s in the Details

The subtle, minor details are what make or break a website. When you visit a website that focuses on the details, you can really tell.

These details are what we spend time on. We enjoy making things easier to use and spending time on the details that some would argue are a waste of time. In the end, we create better websites that visitors enjoy and put their trust in.

What About Your Website?

If you already have a website, but would like to improve the usability of it, we can help.

Shawn, was the second designer I hired and the experience with him was like night and day. Shawn listens and produces. Such as easy process. He is highly organized, does what he says, keeps you informed of the process through an easy app -Base camp, he creates reasonable deadlines and adheres to them. Honestly can’t say enough…oh and I LOVE my logo!

Shawn was exceptionally professional, responsive and detail-oriented. He worked to provide creative solutions to our projects and managed multiple (and often shifting) timelines with grace and efficiency. It is a true pleasure to work with Shawn and I would recommend Graticle Design to anyone needing his services.
