A website is a company's face to the internet. The design of the website, in turn, reflects the quality of the company's work. If the design doesn't meet client expectations the message the company wants to convey might be lost.
Why not use a CMS?
Designing a website requires knowledge and skill, and time. It requires knowledge about usability and search engine optimization. Many companies require a website with dynamic content that they can update, like news posts or pictures. There are a few good content management systems on the market that can handle usability and search engine optimization, as well as having a large number of modules for interactivity. The good systems, however, require the user to spend a lot of time learning how to use the administration interface. They are complicated to use because building a well-functioning website is a complex process. Many of them also tend to look similar, because they are designed using templates.
We believe in custom solutions
We believe in creating custom solutions individually tailored to every company’s needs. Each company gets exactly the functions they require. We build custom administration interfaces that allow the user to easily update the elements on their site they need to – no more and no less - and without the need for training courses. Each company gets a unique site with a unique feel and look.
We develop websites using XHTML, CSS and ASP.NET. We can also provide solutions using Silverlight, Flash and jQuery. We always perform cross-browser testing to ensure a high level of consistency. We can also provide responsive web design with optimization for multiple devices.
Before you approach a web studio about building a new website for your company it is good to have an idea about what style of website you feel would best represent your company.
