NEED A WEBSITE?
Many people and businesses start off thinking,
"We need a Web Presence!" but they don't
know where to go from there. We can help!
Even if you don't have a clue what to do beyond
the need for a website, we can get you started.
THE THREE ELEMENTS OF GOOD
The first element of a good website design is to specify
the purpose. Exactly why do you want a website? What do
you want it to accomplish? If you don't know what you want
your site to do, how will you know if you've done it? We will

The second element of good site design is readability. This
encompasses everything from the graphics you use to the

The next consideration in site flow is drawing the
interested readers deeper into your site, keeping their
attention by telling them things they want to know, and
relating those things to how they might apply to the
The third consideration in site flow is navigation. There
