Website Design & Development
You may have heard before that your website is essentially your “online store-front,” or the first impression you get to make with potential customers.
As web marketing and technology have advanced, your first impression to users could be a variety of things, from your business’s social media pages to your Google reviews. However, that doesn’t make your website any less important. A website gives you the chance to pull users in or turn them away, and our team is here to make sure you leave a lasting impression for the better.
Custom Web Design Solutions
Your priorities are our priorities.
Whether you’d like an especially unique design, a simpler site that’s easy to use, or a site that integrates special features and third-party tools. Every website project we complete has a dedicated team consisting of a project manager, designer, developer, and content strategist to give you a well-rounded website. We offer static websites and websites with WordPress or Drupal as the CMS, so you can have as much access to the website post-launch as you’d like.
Taking Care of All Your Must-Haves
A lot of website components can be included or excluded depending on specific needs, but there are some items we believe are absolutely essential for a successful website. We prioritize the following on every website project we complete:
- Responsive design (mobile-friendly)
- Accessible color contrast
- Good UX
- CMS user training (so you can update your website after launch)
- Installation of Google Analytics
- Search engine optimization
The Marriage of Custom Development & User Flexibility
In the past, a highly custom website sometimes meant that while your site looked great, it was very difficult to change page layouts without paying for additional development time.
We believe you should be able to have a site that looks unique to your organization AND allows you the flexibility to reuse design elements on new pages if you like. Our team designs and develops component-based website layouts that allow you to combine the elements we design in a variety of ways that look great and fit the content you need to add.
Web Projects Informed by Your Specific Needs
Though we follow a similar process for most of our web design projects, the types of work we plan to do within that process is completely based on your organization’s needs! Your project manager will keep you in the loop every step of the way to view website progress, provide input, and allow you to voice any comments or concerns.

Ongoing Hosting & Support Relationships
You’ve probably worked with vendors in the past who suddenly disappear post-launch, making it difficult to get in touch. So have we, and it’s frustrating. With Webspec, you’ll always be able to reach out to our team with questions, and we’ll do our best to give you the answers you need.
If you know you’ll have regular questions beyond the month or two after your site launches, you may be a good candidate for a hosting & support plan with us. Our hosting & support plans come with regular security updates to your CMS, free site cleanup in the event of a hack, and you’ll have a point of contact who can answer regular questions & concerns about your website.
