Web Design is A Funny Thing

In this age of people being empowered to do things for themselves, virtually anyone can make some kind of website and post it on the Web. It’s really not all that difficult to do.

But the mark of a really good website, in Nimble Eye’s way of thinking, is the site’s ability to deliver for its owners. This means a site that is easily found by people using Google and other search engines, a site that is easy to navigate, and one that uses modern Web standards of design and coding to ensure that the site works properly in all Web browsers and on all platforms.

Our Philosophy on Design

We listen to our clients. Each knows more about his or her particular business than anyone else: how it works, who the customers are, and what to expect from a website. At Nimble Eye Design, our goal is to create websites with fresh, original designs (we don’t use canned templates…) using contemporary Web coding standards and practices.

As a result, sites that we design load quickly, run smoothly, and are very easy to maintain. By avoiding gimmicky or proprietary software, we build sites that can grow and change as your business’ web presence evolves. We can also update sites built with out of date coding or proprietary software and bring them up to modern standards. Mobile devices, as you are probably aware, have already become dominant in terms of how people are accessing the Web. We can optimize your site to make sure that it looks equally good on smartphones, tablets, desktops, etc.

Stuck with a hosting company’s “site builder” theme for WordPress? We can convert your site into a modern, much more capable WordPress installation with a modern, contemporary theme that will update easily.

Do you need to move your site from your existing hosting service to a new host? We have done this dozens of times for clients, and can make the transition swiftly and with no disruption to your website.
