We can design your website with elegance, simplicity, effectiveness, and quality.     Effigy Designs can also provide custom logos and custom graphics to bring uniqueness to your site.     We will work with you to achieve a look that reflects the personality of your organization.     Your site will be visually pleasing and representative of you, as well as easy to navigate.

We use the following 5 elements of design to assist with web development and efficiency:
  • Content - The primary purpose of every website is to deliver your message. Effective content is the only way you will keep your visitors and make them want to return at a later time.

  • Navigation - If navigation is not easy and efficient, your visitiors will have difficulty navigating within your site, as well difficulty finding the information they seek. With so many sites available, your visitors will move on the next one without hesitation.

  • Visual Appeal - Due to the fact there are many different operating system, screen resolution, or browser, a website must meet many visual objectives. A website that looks professinal with one browser, can look illegible on another browser. We strive to create a design that will be compatible for all visitors to your site.

  • Page Load Time - Your visitors want your webpage to load fast so they can get the information they want. The longer your visitors wait the less likely they will want to purchase your services/products. The faster the delivery the more likely they are to purchase your item/services.

  • Site Location and Promotion - Location.  One of the major concerns of online business is whether or not their website is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your webhost should be reliable, and cost-effective. Effigy Designs will assist with providing you the information you need to make an educated decision about where you want your web home to be maintained.

    Promotion.   Inadequate promotion makes web design practically useless. Know your audience you seek. Do you know the demographics? Do you have an idea of the general technology which will be used to find your website? What are the most popular search engines? Effigy Designs will assist with all of your promotion needs.
