Do you ever wonder why Target chooses to prominently feature their deep red color throughout their store or why Walmart plays music on their overhead while you shop?
It comes down to more than simply branding their stores’ image or one big-wig’s color or music preferences. Their visual and audio selections are carefully placed components that are designed to subliminally befriend customers and put them at ease. The red color psychologically raises a person’s excitement and urge to buy. Reminiscent 80s and 90s tunes and light Top 40 music eases shoppers into a relaxed state of mind when they’re coming in to shop after a particularly harried or stressful day.
Since a website serves as the face of a business in so many ways, how do you want your customers to respond when they see yours?

That’s where the “Design” in our name comes in. We know SEO companies are a dime a dozen and that free website templates are practically jumping into your inbox.

This is why we encourage you to interview your prospective website development or website design company and thoroughly review their portfolio. Look for longevity and make sure you see them delivering results for their other clientele over a period years.
Check out our portfolio and tell us about the instant vibe you get from scrolling over the first page of each site we’ve created. We love to use movement and color to paint the picture of a company. What is your first impression of these establishments? Is it evident what they wanted to impart to their visitors? Clearly, they didn’t use a Go Daddy template or tell the weekend girl to “just put something together” because she’s the most Internet-savvy of the bunch.
