Website Redesign for Holloway Eye Care & Optique


newly redesigned website for Holloway Eye Care

Taking a look at Holloway Eye Care & Optique’s original website from 2009 (also built by our team), one can easily see why it was in need of an update. Even though the site was built on a reliable platform (Adobe Business Catalyst) and had been converted to a mobile-responsive…

Putting “Mobile First Design” First


example of mobile first website design

It’s a fact that more people view websites on mobile devices than on desktop computers. It would make sense, then, to begin designing a website with the optimal mobile display, and then allow the desktop display to be driven by the already-determined mobile display. This is called “mobile first design.”…

We always want to make sure our clients’ websites are up-to-date with regard to functionality, usability and mobile readiness.  So when our clients at Advanced Payroll Solutions, whose website was built on the rather difficult-to-manage DNN platform, needed their website to be mobile-ready, we promptly recommended converting the site into…

Contemporary websites are based on contemporary, interactive designs (and content!) that are dynamic and flexible.  That’s why it seems odd to us when we receive an RFP (request for proposal) that mentions the creation of wireframes as part of the website design process.  We haven’t built a wireframe for a…  


What’s a “Mobile Responsive” Website (and How Do I Get One)?


mobile responsive website example

We tell all of our clients their websites must be mobile responsive.  In fact, we won’t design a website that’s not.  But what does “mobile responsive” really mean? It’s a known fact that more people search online using their phones, tablets or other mobile devices than by using a desktop…  


Mobile-Ready Sites Outlast Apps Every Time


mobile websites vs mobile app

In about 75 percent of cases where a company asks us if we can develop an app for their company, what they really need is not an actual app, but a more fully mobile website.  When a company asks for a separate mobile website, what will most often serve them…
