Responsive Website Design And Development For A Mobile World

Your website is the foundation that implements your company’s marketing plan.

It serves as the place where your brand story and experience are expressed. It is also the point of interaction between your messaging and content marketing efforts. To attract traffic and drive engagement, your company's goals must inform your website design. That means engagement not only for marketing to gain qualified leads, but also for advocacy supporting your sales, orders and distribution of products. Finally, it must also service the needs of your team and target audience.


A responsive web design (RWD) allows webpages to adjust dynamically for mobile, tablet, computer and widescreen to be viewed in response to the size of the screen or web browser the customer is using.

A Unified Website That Adjusts Dynamically For Mobile, Tablet, Computer and Widescreen is the Definition of A Responsive Website Design

update_trialacd_cover.jpgThe world has crossed a threshold with more mobile than fixed devices accessing the internet. Consequently, one of our core principles is to ensure the mobile experience is positive for the customer.

To be able to meet your visitors on any platform and accommodate them on mobile devices, you need a website that adapts to any context seamlessly. With responsive web design, graphics resize from device to device, modules orient across the screen, and menus hide on smaller screens but scale back up on larger screens.

In the website design process, our teams work with you to wireframe and map your content in a clear information design that expresses value proposition to your audience. We then create the 'look and feel' and user experience to attract and engage them in repeat visits: that is, providing paths to explore an offering at a deeper level.


open_source2.jpgWhat could your website and those of Lincoln Center and The Guggenheim Museum have in common?  Probably not music by Yo-Yo Ma or paintings by Picasso but a content management system (CMS). CMS is the answer to keeping a sleek and savvy website as up-to-date as real-time web demands. CMS platforms make it easy to keep your website fresh, manageable, current and in line with whatever next step your law firm or another business is taking.

86% of websites are developed on open source CMS. We utilize responsive templates during creation of the design and then develop your website on open source platforms right-sized for your business needs such as Wordpress, Joomla,  Drupal and CiviCRM. Our website development services customize these powerful and sophisticated CMS so all of your content can be database driven, allowing for easy updates, access control, multiple languages, and interactive media.

As your website developers, we also provide the integration of sophisticated functions such as membership systems, event management, donation systems, human resources (HR) systems, online education systems and social networks. We have the capacity to take these extensions to new levels of personalization and functionality.

No website is an island. Our software developers handle integration of sophisticated custom application development and configure and manage customized hosting on a virtual private server (VPS) that integrates tightly with latest technologies as back-up to Amazon S3, serve online video, data warehouse, and even artificial intelligence (AI). Your intranet may need application functionality that Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud can cost-effectively provide and our teams can implement.

The user interface design must be attractive and effcient since your employee and partners may work with them all day long. In the end, the design and technology is about creating value for you, your customers and partners. That means making repeat visits worthwhile and referrals even supporting evangelism via social media and other channels.  We ensure that your website integrates closely or supports social networks like Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instragram and Snapchat.
