Application
Usability

A usable interface for your application can make the difference between success and failure. Users need to be able to understand and navigate an application to find information they’re looking for. Don’t assume they’ll understand your internal processes when you developed the application. Too often companies structure information the way they process it internally, not the way a user accesses it.

User Interface
Design

Although design is subjective, it can still set you apart from your competitors and reinforce your brand. There are literally millions of individuals that have Photoshop installed and call themselves designers. They’ll usually bill less than we do, but just because we have wrenches and are cheaper than a auto-shop doesn’t mean you should hire us to fix your car.

NOT
Logos

We listed this on the service page because we’re asked a lot to create logos. We don’t do that. Thanks for asking, though.

User Experience
Design

When a user or potential client visits your site, you want to make an impression. You want them to feel a certain way about your company and products. User Experience Design brings emotion to the plate by applying your brand and design techniques to make an impact. Sometimes that impact might be a cool summer breeze on the beach. Sometimes it needs to be a hammer on fire.

User Flows
& A/B Testing

Need to know how your users are interacting with your site and see how you can make it better? Charting user flows for your product allows you to see the virtual wagon paths left by viewers and determine what changes need to be made to direct them where you’d like them to go. By combining this technique with A/B testing we can test small changes to a subset of users to see what effectively generates the desired response and click through.

Interactive
Strategy

The internet is scary. From getting a new product ranked high on Google to knowing whether or not your company needs a Facebook profile, it can be overwhelming at times. We can help you determine the best way to proceed online and gain results. Believe it or not, not every company needs a Facebook page, Twitter feed or blog.

Information
Architecture

We fired the last guy that called it a sitemap. An Information Architecture (IA) comprises half of the blueprints for your website or application. It’s not simply a listing of the pages. It helps you focus on your project goals, the client’s needs, SEO strategy and navigation structure. Remember when GI Joe used to say “knowing is half the battle?” This is what they meant.

Icon & Presentation
Illustration

The difference between a chart built in PowerPoint and a unique illustration to convey your idea in a presentation is immense. We incorporate your brand standards and design illustrations as scalable vector or layered photoshop files for you to utilize in presentations and marketing/sales materials.

SEO Analysis
& Consulting

Honestly, this is something you can do on your own with a few online tools and the knowledge of how to use them. That’s pretty much all we do here. Don’t be fooled, that’s what all companies that charge for SEO do. We just happen to put those tools in your hands and give you a little guidance so you don’t have to pay us each month to essentially export an Excel table and email it to you.

Application
Design

Application design is wholly different from website design. Considerations have to be made for the application platform, such as .asp/.jsp, Ruby, .php, xCode, etc.. All of these work differently and require different design approaches. The complex functions within an application also require a skilled designer to create a concept that incorporates both usability and development best practices.

Email
Marketing

Email Marketing is becoming increasingly difficult in the age of spam that we live in. Users are quick to hit the delete button and the FCC is quick to penalize you. We don’t offer an Email Marketing platform, but we can help you select one and develop emails that catch the attention of your clients and conform to legal requirements.
