Let’s Create an Unforgettable Experience

Your prospects and clients or customers expect you to have a website and it’s often the first encounter your audience will have with your brand. Much like the decor and style of a physical office space, your web design sets the tone and expectation for quality your brand will deliver. More than that, it establishes a digital environment in which your audience can engage, be informed and connect. Visitors also expect your web design to be optimized for the device they’re using, whether that’s their cellphone, tablet, iPad, desktop computer or other device.

Our Custom Web Design

 

Cassandra Bryan Design, also known as cb{d}, specializes in designing and developing fully responsive websites (they dynamically adjust to the device your visitor is using) and are also completely custom. Let cb{d} help you create an unforgettable online experience.

Built to last, each web design layout is developed for growth and the software is maintained on our servers to ensure your website evolves with the ever-changing environment of web.

What to Expect

Strategy + Content Average Time: 4 Weeks

Strategy + Content Average Time: 4 Weeks

The first step in a custom website project is to thoroughly understand your organization, your goals, your target market and their expectations as well as how your website factors into all of it. We reach such understandings by reviewing information provided by you, having meetings/calls and also performing an analysis of your competition, including Search Engine Optimization (SEO) research. Next, we work closely with your team to develop the website outline (think of it like a blueprint to a building). The website outline will drive the written content we develop.

If your project includes photography, videography, 3D renderings or animations, this work is typically scheduled or begins during the initial phase of the project and may continue into additional phases as needed.

Armed with the website outline and the written content from the first phase, we’ll set to work custom designing homepage concepts for your team to review. Once the homepage is finalized, we will move onto designing all the subpages of your website. Upon completion, we can provide all elements and a typography style guide for you to utilize in your other marketing materials. Usage of the elements and typography will ensure a cohesive image.

Once all design layouts are finalized, we’ll start building the website using HTML, CSS and Javascript. You will be provided a live link to follow along with our progress. We will then integrate WordPress as a Content Management System (CMS) to allow you to make easy updates and add pages within your website dashboard. Your website will be compatibility-tested in all modern web browsers and mobile devices. Upon approval, we will launch your beautiful new website!
