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.

Thank you for a great experience in developing our new and classy web site. Your skills in visually organizing a quality site for our Show had already paid dividends in numerous comments from carvers and guests attending our show. You have efficiently updated the site when needed, your fees have been very reasonable and we look forward to bigger and even better participation in our show from the community and from carvers in the future.”

The BEST graphic artist I have worked with in the past 20 years. Found him (surprisingly) on Craigslist. Extremely fast, affordable, and the best quality of work I’ve ever received. He very carefully listened to my ideas and produced graphics exactly reflecting my vision. Shawn’s work exceeded my expectations. His quality of work was also complimented by the printing company who usually reserves comments.
