Site design

Determining the layout of your site is the first step in site design. If you have spent any time "surfing the net", you know that web sites vary a great deal. They range from simple single column pages, to multiple column pages like this one done with a table, to frames (click here to see a frame version of our main page). Certain layouts work better than others for some applications. Together, we'll decide which layout will work best to promote your product or service. If you want a personal site that lets the world know who you are, we can do that as well.

Photo Scanning
& Graphics

Many people think that the more graphics and/or photos on their site, the better. This is not the case. Remember the last time you sat in front of your computer waiting for a page to download that seemed to take forever. It was most likely due to large or excessive graphics resulting in long download time. And long download time is the number one complaint of Internet users. Most visitors to your site are not going to wait for your page to load if it takes too long. Of course, there are exceptions. It has been our experience that visitors to tourist and real estate related sites are more willing to wait for a site to load.

Together, we'll determine how many graphics you should put on your site. If you already have a company logo, we can scan it for your site. If not, we can create one for you. Then we'll scan the photos you supply to be included on your site. During this process, we'll resize, retouch and enhance the photos if necessary to ensure they look good but are as small as possible to decrease download time.

Finally, we have digital photography service available should you require it.


We'll start with a "rough draft" of your site and upload it to our site so you can view it. This allows you the opportunity to give us your feedback as we work on your site. We'll upload your new site only when you are completely satisfied.

Search Engines

Once your site is complete and on-line, we'll submit your site to the major search engines. These include Yahoo, Infoseek, AltaVista, Lycos, Excite, Hotbot, Webcrawler, Linkstar, Northern Light and Planet Search. While we can't guarantee your site will come up within the top ten in all the search engines, we will do everything we can to ensure your site ranks high in the search engines when searching for appropriate key words. All of our sites place well in most of the search engines. To us, it's a matter of pride.
