Logo & Branding
Your logo is your business’s face; unique yet recognizable, and hopefully… memorable. A logo can be an icon with text and a tagline, or a mini-illustration. Your branding is how your logo is used, the colors and typeface for all of your marketing and stationary, and usage guidelines for consistency.
We start with Information Architecture to define the site, move onto a beautiful and functional design, and then develop and test for all platforms. Your new website will work on iPads, mobile phones, and desktop and laptop computers and on all major modern browsers appropriate for your key audience and user.
This year in January, Google implemented their requirement for SSL Certificates for any website that had a form. So pretty much everyone needed to get on board and this was not a bad thing. In doing so, websites became more secure (until something else comes up) and we got less spam and hacks because the forms were more secure. Securing a website (also known as “hardening”) is a multi-step process that implements brute force attack walls, hides sensitive data, and keeps your site more secure than without it. Security also can be affected by not updating your site’s software (see above). Read more about Security Checklist: Best Steps for A Secure WordPress Website
Blog comments, image optimization, form testing, backups; These are even more requirements that come up with some websites, which are not considered updates or security, but still can affect both. For example, if you are uploading huge images without scaling first, your site will quickly become more and more cumbersome to backup and also for your site visitors loading your pages. Yes, your site might actually crash because you’ve uploaded too many large images. Another wise service are regular backups. Stuff happens… let’s make sure we are prepared.
