Why Do You Want a Website? Tips for Web Design Success

September 26, 2017

When we discuss a website project with a prospective customer, this is one of the first questions we ask. It’s also a question most often to stop people in their tracks because they haven’t really thought it through. Vague general answers ensue. The reason it’s important is so that your website is a tool in your business toolset and not another fruitless expense.

Potential Web Design Headache: Fonts

September 15, 2017

Unfortunately, throughout the year we pick up a lot of projects where other web design companies simply can’t (or won’t) finish a project to completion. It’s never a fun situation, but we’re happy to help people get back on track. One particular problem we’ve seen is when a web design business delivers page designs using custom fonts. Now, if these fonts are able to be licensed for web use (or are free and hosted via Google Fonts for example), we’re good to go. But often, the designer chooses his favorite fonts in the design, but those fonts can’t be used online.

Is Your WordPress Website Easy to Manage?

September 14, 2017

Last week, someone told me about their new website that was created by another web design company. They mentioned that the process was relatively painless, but the end result wasn’t quite what they expected. They thought since the website was being built on WordPress, that it was going to be easy to change the text and images on their brand new website. After all, isn’t that what a Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress is supposed to do?

I really can’t fully express how great my experience was working with Shawn and Graticle. I work for a non-profit and our website had fallen into disrepair–we had even lost ownership of our domain name! But Shawn went above and beyond and walked me through the process of getting our domain name back, along with the complete design of the new site. I absolutely LOVED that he developed videos that walked us through the process of managing the website–from logging in, to editing photos, to changing content–he covered all the bases we needed to take care of our new site. This was particularly appreciated because, as a non-profit, we will likely be moving through web managers over the years and having these videos to pass on to each new manager will be an incredible relief, and will (hopefully) help us avoid the trap we fell into with our last site. He is the most responsible businessman I’ve ever worked with, he was extremely prompt in his replies to emails, and I never felt like he left us hanging or confused at any step along the way. I recommend his services with full marks! You won’t regret it!
