We've been designing for the Web since the days of 14.4
modems. We remember what it's like to surf with a modem
and have become masters at balancing visual quality, functionality
and download times.
There is another factor that impacts design: search engine
optimization. Search engines cannot decipher text embedded
in graphics and thus you may loose valuable opportunities
if you use graphics for navigation buttons, taglines, quotes,
and so on. By making extensive use of "style sheets"
we are able to create sites that both look great and rank
highly with search engines.
Over the years we have created a wide variety of designs
ranging from the conservative to the fun and edgy. Most
often we create the designs ourselves but in some cases
we will work in conjunction with our clients' internal graphics
personnel or existing external agency resources.
