Your website is your identity on the world wide web. This is as important as your physical storefront. When it comes to potential customers, they will typically make decisions about your business based on the look and feel of your website. In addition, we work with you to make sure you have quality content, and that it is organized well for SEO purposes.

Christian web design defines who we are and what we do. Our business is providing responsive website design services and our faith is in Jesus Christ. We strive to put Biblical, Christian principles such as honesty, and hard work into each of our design projects.

SOME OF OUR DESIGN WORK

We have designed websites for many different types of small business, churches, Christian ministries, bloggers, and much more. What you see above is just some of the web design work that we have done.  Please check out our web design portfolio to see the full gallery of websites that we have completed.

THE DESIGN PROCESS

INITIAL CONSULTATION

Here are some of the following things to consider when planning your website project. There is a great deal of thought that goes in to planning a new website or in to redesign an existing website. Here are some helpful questions to ask yourself when planning your website.

Target Audience – Who will be visiting my website?
Site Content – What information needs to on the site?
Design Type – Will I need to change information regularly on my website?
Design Style – How should my website look?

WEBSITE TEMPLATE

After the initial consultation, we will prepare a design template that will be used to build out the page content for the entire website. The template provides the foundation for which the rest of the website is built. We spend a lot of time on the site template to make sure that your design style comes across just right.

During the template design process, our staff will include your business logos, colors, fonts, and any other styles that you may use. We will also consider design aspects of other websites that our clients like. Typically, one design style i presented to each client. Depending upon the web design package chosen, there will be one or more revisions allowed.

PAGE DESIGN

Once the template design is approved, focus shifts to designing the individual pages that will contain your website’s content. The process of page design involves determining all the necessary content including text, pictures, videos, and internal links within your website. The goal is to take all of the website’s content and organize it first. This makes it easy for visitors to the website to find your information.

Once the organization is in place, we will then move to creating a menu structure, and begin placing content on each page. While organization is important, creating an eye-catching web page helps greatly in keeping visitors engaged in reading the content on your website. Users who don’t find your page design enjoyable, may leave your site altogether and move on to the next.

CHRISTIAN INTERNET MARKETING

Once the website design is complete and is approved, we review the website and add code where necessary. The purpose of this is to create a website that is search engine friendly. Items that we focus on will include the page titles, header titles, image tags, internal links, and the actual page text will be checked. Suggestions to text changes may be made with the goal of increasing the website’s search engine rankings.

These changes are basic upgrades to the website to help increase traffic. More information about our full christian internet marketing services is available upon request.
