Custom Website Design CT
The most important step Web Design CT addresses in building your website is learning about you and your customers. Our pre-production analysis includes discussing who your target audience will be, what the message is you want to convey, and what goals you need to achieve through your online presence. Once we learn these important details, we create a mockup design for your new website. After your review and submission of edits we will implement any changes you desire until you are completely satisfied with the design. Our next step is to layout the site with your copy (your text) and images (photos, diagrams, etc). This is what custom web design is all about. We don’t utilize templates or duplicate layouts for anyone.
We also provide content development services if you need assistance with writing and photography for your site.
A little more about our approach
- Step 1: Web Design Kickoff Meeting
Meet with the client to talk about the new website’s design (color scheme, layout, etc), the client’s goals and to look at competitor sites.
- Step 2: Website Mockup Design
Finalization of the sitemap, development of a page scheme, layout and navigation scheme. This is delivered to the client in the form of a mockup so they can see what the site will look like. We then ask the client to give us any changes they may have to the design. Upon final approval we move forward to the next step in the design process.
- Step 3: Website Buildout
Editing and incorporation of photographs and images provided
by the client. We build the site with SEO best practices and write META tags to acheive high search engine rankings.
- Step 4: Final Website Edits
In this last step, we make any final edits to the layout, text, images, etc. We set up hosting, any email addresses needed and register domain names. We program forms, set up Google Analytics tracking and Google Webmaster tools. We also check the website in Google Chrome, Firefox and IE7+ to ensure cross browser compatibility.
- Step 5: Website Go Live
When the site goes live we submit it to the search engines and train customers so they can edit their site. We provide FTP (File Transfer Protocol) access to files and access to the website’s control panel where they can set up email addresses as needed. We then provide technical support as needed.

Website Content Management Systems (CMS)
With Adobe Contribute we enable our clients to quickly and easily update their sites, without fear or compromising the integrity of the web site. Adobe Contribute provides full support for text and page layout editing and requires no technical expertise and is the easiest way to safely give clients the ability to update their own websites.
We also build websites on the WordPress CMS platform if a web based CMS is preferred. WordPress, which is free to customers, started as a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the many plugins, widgets, and themes. WordPress is easy to learn and simple to use. Utilizing WordPress as your CMS allows you to build in additional functionality for your site such as site search, rss feeds, content managed slider animations, etc. with ease and with little or no extra cost as much functionality is already built and waiting to be plugged in.
Unhappy with the way your website looks? With the ever increasing growth in web design technologies, chances are if your site was designed over two years ago it needs a redesign. Refresh the interest in your website with an improved layout and by adding cutting edge features. Redesigning your website can also help your search engine rankings and conversion rates.

The Web Design CT team will turn around web site updates large and small in a very short amount of time. You will not be required to sign any maintenance contracts. We keep minor problems from building up over time by performing broken link checks, making sure all images are being displayed properly, and spell checking. We also make recommendations to help with results including improving search engine optimization, incorporating social media and adding or enhancing the presence of conversion points.
