web design________

As part of James’ vocation within a monastery complex for 25 years (see About) he has been deeply engaged in the art of publishing—from running a Heidelburg Press to book and magazine design to being a lead designer/developer for websites that involved publishing, education, nonprofit, history, artifacts and ecommerce.

The exacting and creative demands of graphic design translate very well into web design—where in a limited space the designer needs to create elements that are aesthetic, unique, psychologically attractive to the site's natural or broad audience, easy and intuitive to navigate, very functional and engineered to rank high on Google, Yahoo! and other search engines.

James‘ and Andrea’s web design tools include expert use of WordPress, Dreamweaver, Javascript, PHP, CSS, and the creation of E-commerce websites. James also writes content for many of our web clients, and both Andrea and James deliver master-level SEO for clients needing SEO.

philosophy________

Web design philosophy: Work closely with each client to craft an image-and-text look that suits their personal interests, services or products while drawing on design approaches that we can introduce them to, or that they have seen elsewhere and wish to incorporate into their site. Develop a look that excites and appeals to a certain audience or demographic, or broaden out for a more eclectic pallet of imagery and background space.

Visitors like innovation, but they like it fast loading. We specialize in sites that load fast on all browsers, yet, if desired, integrate some dynamic features: motion and fades of images and/or words. Navigation strategy is crucial, and we give each client all of our experience in creating navigation across the pages that is natural and sensible. Pages are well cross-linked to facilitate high search engine ranking. As well, we apply the latest techniques to building search engine ranking optimization into each site.
