Calgary Web Design and Development

In Today’s day and age, companies are judged by their online presence. Make your website standout above the rest!

I have been designing and developing websites for the past 13 years, for the past 7 years, my main focus has been on WordPress Development. In my spare time, in between working as a Web Developer and Volunteering as a Firefighter for the Village of Beiseker, I enjoy taking a couple web development contracts each year.

Free Consultation

Let’s meet, discuss your vision and see if we are both the right fit with each other. Once I have a better understanding on exactly what you want, we can put together an estimate. This meeting can be either in person or over the phone.

Planning Phase

Once we have our initial meeting, we will move into the planning phase, in this phase we will discuss the fine details of your website, get any brand assets you might have and start wire framing the website. Once you are happy with the wireframes, we can move into the design phase. 

Design Phase

The Design Phase is where we take the wireframes and fully design the website. We will add in colours, photos, fonts and the actual copy for your website. Once design is complete, you will have the chance to review and request further changes. 

 

Development Phase

The development phase is where we take the web design and turn it into a fully functioning website, we will build the site to be responsive, meaning that the site will look good, whether you are using a phone, tablet, desktop or even a tv. We will develop the site with SEO* in mind, optimizing photos and videos to reduce file size so that your website loads fast. We will add in keywords and meta tags to help improve your ranking. 

*Please note: We will develop the site with SEO in mind, however that does not necessarily mean that you will show up on the first page of search engines, depending on your industry, you may need to invest in a SEO Expert if you would like to be in the top 5-10. 

Testing

In this phase, we will test your website to make sure nothing breaks, we will use various devices and browsers to test your site and fix any bugs if we encounter any. 

Review and Training

That’s it, the site is pretty much ready to go live. We will meet in person or over a screen share if you would rather. We will go over every part of your website, make sure you are happy with everything and then train you on how to use the admin side of your website. Once everything is good, we can finally push your new site live.
