Website Design and Development Services
The First Rule of Good Design
Good website design requires a balance between artistic and technological craftsmanship coupled with quality content. At Craftix we understand the need for this balance and practice it. This means your website will look professional and function properly.
Customized Professional Web Design in a One Stop Shop
Whether you're looking to have a new website created for the first time or you need to redesign an existing website Craftix is a one stop shop for you all of your website needs including design, hosting, and content management capabilties.
Craftix's highly capable web developers go above and beyond the average website dime-a-dozen companies. As a rule we avoid "cookie-cutter" designs and the reselling of identical web templates that many other firms offer, and instead develop a customized web presence for each client using interfaces that your visitors will understand and find easy to use.
Traditional Craftsmanship Coupled with Technological Know How
We understand that developing a web presence for your business or organization reflects on your capabilities, character, and professionalism. With this understanding, we work with the philosophy that the creation of a website should be performed with the same level of attention to detail that a traditional master craftsman would have used in eras now past.
The net result of this philosophy is what led us to only create custom websites. We achieve website designs unique to your business or organization by using images specific to your firm. These images are provided by you or, when necessary, taken by us using digital photography.
A Guided Approach
Starting the process is as simple as an initial consultation which can be done either over the phone or in person. During this consultation we help guide you through the process by learning about what you do, what you want your website to say about you, and what you want your visitors to see. We then suggest what our experience tells us would be the best way to organize your site in the most effective manner to meet your needs. The we discuss additional site features you would like to see incorporated into the design. From this consultation we then can determine the scope of the project and cost involved. We will then work on a design customized to compliment your content and produce an effective representation of your firm. During the design phase we work with you through the entire process to make sure you're happy with the results.
