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 is a delight to work with. He meets deadlines on time and always gives a heads up when he foresees that there may be delay.

Shawn has a strong design aesthetic and was easily able to convey a fresh and modern portrayal of our brand in all of the pieces that he has worked on.

Best of all, I love that I can go to him for advice on a project that I haven’t found a solution for yet. Shawn makes a great teammate to brainstorm a solution—one that will work for your business—and design goals.

We’ve had an excellent experience with Graticle. Not only did Shawn craft a beautiful website (www.statusceramics.com), but he responded quickly to our questions and requests. In fact, we were so pleased with the job he did, we hired him for another website project before finalizing the first.
