Let us build your dream home page

Website Design

Website Design Icon

Simply put, we build websites. The main platforms we work in are WordPress (for its customization), WiX (for its its clean, strong functionality), and Shopify (as the most popular eCommerce platform). We of course also work with the other platforms if you have a preference for Weebly, GoDaddy, or any other platform.

We build your website ensuring it appears uniquely yours, rather than looking like a template, utilizing the advantages of each platform to enhance your website, your social network, and your whole online presence. We develop a bespoke, fully device-responsive, SEO-friendly website customized to your requirements and preferences, resulting in an impressive website that is aesthetically on-brand with clean navigation for your visitors.

All New Website Clients Get:

Inquiry and Scheduling

15 minute overview call where we ask a few questions about your website needs and then set up a time for the longer conversation. Feel free to ask, if you have some basic questions. We will schedule a phone meeting time when it is convenient for both of us to have a deeper web development discussion.

Initial Call and Project Scope

We have a 30-60 minute discussion about your website, the scope of the project, your required functionality. We also discuss RAW Design Lab capabilities, website packages, and an overview of our process. We try to answer all your questions in this session so that you can make an informed decision.

If we need to do a local face-to-face or a Zoom call, we can schedule that instead of a phone conversation.

Price Estimate

Based on our conversations, we develop a Price Estimate which contains details of the scope of the project, ALL costs associated with project, a project start date and the estimated time-line. If the estimate is good as is, we will send you a contract to sign. If you desire changes we will work out the estimate until the details are all to your liking.

Contract

Once the Price Estimate is finalized we send you a contract for you to sign.

James was starting up a knife making shop in his home. He needed a reliable but simple platform to sell the knives he would be making. As an industrial designer, the website needed to be clean, without distractions, and must function absolutely reliably. But this knives would be the complete focus of the website. We built gallery pages to show his process. We created a system where once the knife was sold, it was moved onto the Sold Page automatically.

Niki Ketchman

Wix Website

www.NikiKetchman.com

  • Custom Designed Wix Website
  • Logo Design
  • Optimized large portfolio of images

Niki was looking to update her 10 year old html website for her large collection of sculptures. As an artist, the asthetics are as important as how the website functions. She desired a clean, minimalist site that would keep the visitors interest throughout her extensive portfolio of sculptures. We created a website based on a matrix of 9 categories. The matrix leads the visitor to one of the 9 series pages and then down to individual sculptures. At all times the visitor can navigate through the website levels within three clicks, even though the website has 85 sculptures.
