We have established lasting relationships with our clients, including The Smithsonian Institution, The Fetzer Institute, the National Museum of the American Indian and many others.
We prefer to use Drupal to manage the content and data on most of our sites.
STRATEGY: Every online project can deliver an outstanding user experience. We carefully plan our projects to assure the best possible results for our clients. We analyze and thoroughly understand the content. We build interactive wireframes to help imagine the website’s structure and navigation. The result is a complete plan that gives our clients a prototype of the final site. To ensure a successful online presence, we develop a digital strategy to engage your audiences through social media and marketing.
CREATIVITY: Website users are drawn to visually engaging pages. They spend more time on sites that have intrinsic appeal. Our award-winning designers approach every project with the goal of maximizing the design’s impact. We design websites that are fresh but never trendy. We specialize in redesigning current websites to refresh the structure and the visual appeal.
TECHNOLOGY: With over two decades experience in this field, we know that technology is going to keep changing. We are able to implement all of the most popular current web technologies. Because we work with non-profits, our preference is to use open source technology whenever possible. We have had great success with the Drupal framework and build dynamic sites that our clients can easily update.
