WEB DESIGN

"CONTENT PRECEDES DESIGN. DESIGN IN THE ABSENCE OF CONTENT IS NOT DESIGN, IT'S DECORATION."
– JEFFREY ZELDMAN

Focused on creating clean, functional, aesthetically-appealing, easy-to-navigate sites that adhere to web standards and ADD VALUE value to your business.


There are 4 types of commercial websites:

1. BROCHURE. The website SUPPORTS the business and gives credibility when potential customers vet a business.

2. LEAD-GEN. The website SUPPORTS the business and gathers data to identify potential sales leads. The best strategy is to streamline the site so that it can gather customer information quickly and easily.

3. CATALOG. The website IS the business and presents products for purchase online.

4. MEDIA. The website IS the business and provides content to sell advertising.


OceanWild Design specializes in creating BROCHURE and LEAD-GEN WEBSITES with solid SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Sites are built using responsive design so that layouts adapt dynamically to fit the screen sizes of phones and tablets.


HTML-BUILT OR CMS-BUILT

Your site can be built using either HTML or a Content Management System (CMS) such as Squarespace. HTML sites are hand-coded, custom sites built with CSS, JavaScript and jQuery with dynamic features including sliders, galleries, etc. These sites are not updatable by clients unless using software like Dreamweaver or a text editor. CMS sites are customizable template-based sites that are also feature-rich and will allow you to update the content after the initial site design.


SITE UPDATES & SUPPORT

OceanWild Design can service your existing or new website for the areas of your site that may need to be updated regularly (e.g. content, products, prices, annoucements, etc.). Maintenance available on a weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly basis.


NEXT STEP...

To begin, it is best to submit the Website Design Brief (79kb) first in order to better understand the overall goals, needs and budget of your project. Pricing is based on the site's complexity, the number of pages and desired features. After acceptance of the proposal, a 50% deposit and signed contract are required to schedule work.

CMS-Built Sites (IN PROGRESS)

These CMS (Content Management System) sites are currently being designed on a platform with a drag-and-drop functionality that allows site owners to update and manage their own content. These sites are mobile-responsive and provide a solid web presence with good traffic analysis. The major advantage of these types of sites is that the online program allows users to manage and modify content easily, anytime — and edits to a website are uploaded immediately.
